The Vango Rivendale 800xl / Illusion 800 TC Sky Liner, not be confused with the Skyshield, is an internal roof liner, which sits inside the tent, and lessens the effects of condensation. The sky liner attaches via the Skytrack II system, with pre-fitted sky hooks, and can be moved along the internal roof to block windows to add shade, or to open them up. The liner creates an added layer between the roof and the living area, adding a homely feel to the tent, and also a thermal layer on cooler days
