Further improved for 2019, the Vango Kela V Standard now has the Sentinel Pro 420 Denier polyester flysheet, and a Double Ripstop finish, for added durability and a more reliable awning. Furthermore, the awning features the new Colourlok fabric, which will not fade as easily as regular polyester, enhancing the lifetime of the awning. The Kela V Standard is a quick pitching, free standing, drive away awning for motorhomes and vehicles, to add some living space to the side of your vehicle. Additionally, the Standard height awning is designed to fit vehicles of a height between 205 - 245cm, and has been the pinnacle in the success of the Vango Drive-Away awnings.

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.
