The Vango Varkala Connect 520 caravan awning is an adaptable, dynamic awning, which is very spacious, and flexible to the customer's needs, as you can adapt the awning by adding annexes, or extra connecting extensions to add more living space external from the caravan.Free Gift Available

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
More Information
Fabric Denier420 Denier (RipStop)

Denier - a measurement used to determine the thickness of the tent flysheet. It relates to the fibre thickness, or thread counts used. The thicker the fabric, generally the stronger, and more durable the fabric will be. The denier really reflects the lifetime to be expected of the tent, and how quickly, it will be affected by UV Degradation.

Awning TypeCaravan 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)6000

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.

Flysheet Fabric420 Sentinel Pro polyester flysheet with double thread ripstop for greater durability

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.
