Improved for 2019, the Vango Kalari 420 caravan awning is a dynamic and spacious awning, which is very quick to pitch, thanks to the patented Airbeam structure, which allows the awning to be pitched extremely fast. The awning offers sublime living space, large windows and multiple entry points. Easy to pitch, simply slide the 6mm kador rail into the groove on the caravan, and then pull the awning to the desired spot where you want to pitch it, then inflate each beam to 7psi, and peg out the awning. Much quicker and simpler than the old frame awning, offering more time for relaxation, and less stress.

|Hydrostatic Head (mm)||
Hydrostatic Head (Tents) – a waterproof rating for technical fabrics measured in mm. The higher the rating the more waterproof the fabric is. A rating of 1500mm is deemed waterproof, but on a tent, look for a rating of 3000 or higher. Measured by the height of water column a fabric weave can take before it begins to “sweat”. “Polycotton” tents will not have a Hydrostatic Head level, as they are not treated for waterproofing.
