Designed to fit two styles of tent, the Vango Rivendale 800 / Rhapsody 800xl footprint and extension groundsheets are ideal for protecting the lifetime of the tent, and also adding some much needed protection from the elements. The footprint will sit under the base of the tent, and protect the tent from wear and tear, and from sharp objects that could pierce and damage the sewn-in groundsheet.

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.
