With the Vango Maldives caravan awning, you can enjoy any stunning scenery from any angle, with this light, bright and airy awning. This hybrid caravan awning has its own unique shape utlising both AirBeams and poles to create a traditional hexagonal conservatory, which makes the awning more of an open yet cosy addition to your caravan. For this awning to have a more strong and rigid structure, Vango have implemented their SuperBeam technology, mixed with steel front supporting poles, further combined with Sentinel Elegance fabric, to create a reliable, durable caravan awning.

  • Sentinel Elegance Fabric - fully waterproof and performs in all weathers.
  • Diamond Pro Windows - add better insulation to the awning.
  • Superbeams - thicker and stronger beams.
  • Secondary Mesh Panel Doors aid greater internal ventilation.

Additional Information

Awning Type Seasonal (Temporary)

Seasonal: A caravan awning specifically designed for touring, and temporary camping pitches. Ideal for fair weather campers, needing an awning for shorter trips. Usually uses lighter fabrics, for easier portability, and easier pitching.

Residential: Ideal for those camping for longer durations, wanting an awning that can be left pitched all season, or for a month or more at a time. Residential awnings usually use heavier weight fabrics, designed to last longer, and not fade as fast in the UV sunshine rays.

DriveAway VW Awnings: Designed to go onto VW or similar vans, or motorhomes with the correct attachment height. Can be left free-standing at the site if you need your vehicle to get off-site.

Fixed VW Awnings: Reliant on the van or motorhome for the structure of the product. Van cannot be removed offsite once the awning is set up.

Hydrostatic Head (mm) No

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.

Colour Grey Violet
Berth No

Berth – This shows the number of people that the tent can sleep within the inner tents of a model of tent, in line with the industry standard. Normal procedure is to look for a slightly larger tent, for example, a family of four usually purchase a five or six berth tent, to give added room and comfort.

Flysheet Fabric Sentinel Elegance Fabric

Polyester – a synthetic fibre, made from polymer units to create a textile fabric. Polyester is the most popular fabric for tent manufacturing, as it is durable, reliable and lighter in weight. Polyester does not breathe though, which creates more condensation.

Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.

Ripstop Nylon – a durable material used in tents which is strong and repairable due to its Ripstop properties.
