Details

The Vango Varkala Connect 520 awning is a large caravan awning with plenty of living space and great standing height. The Varkala Connect is similar to the regular line of Varkala awning, but the key difference is that you can expand the living space of the awning by adding extensions to the left and right of the tent. The extensions have a size of approximately 250cm, taking the width of the awning to over 10 metres with both added, making it one of the largest awnings available on the marketplace. The Varkala Connect uses the best fabric possible, with the 420 Sentinel Pro flysheet, which is durable, reliable and well tested across the caravan and motorhome awning collections.

  • Diamond Clear PVC windows maximise the light in the awning
  • Sentinel Pro 420 fabric - durable polyester fabric
  • Weather shield skirt, perfect for reducing draughts and easy to clean
  • Zip on connector extensions available for either side of the awning

Hydrostatic Head (mm) 6000
Details

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.

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.

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.
