The Vango Varkala Connect inflatable caravan porch awning returns for 2019. This air awning offers fantastic flexibility and versatility, meeting the expanding need for space of today’s caravanner. The Varkala Connect awning can be combined with the Varkala Connect Extension on either or both sides of the awning to create a huge outdoor living space to the side of your caravan. New for 2019, a Connect Porch can be added, creating a useful shaded area for cooking or dining under.

The Varkala Connect 280 air awning gives you a generous width of 280cm and the option to expand this space with the Connect Extension, giving you an additional 250cm. The Connect Extension is available as a left and right hand side and can be attached to both sides at the same time, giving you a huge width of 780cm.

Vango has used their high quality Sentinel Pro fabric to create the Varkala Connect 280. This polyester material provides this air awning with excellent durability and combined with the factory taped seams, is extremely weather resistant. This fabric now includes Vango’s new ColourLok Technology; a special dye injected into the material which enhances resistance against ultraviolet fading.

The Varkala Connect air awning includes Vango’s SkyTrack II System which allows for useful light and storage accessories to be attached. You simply suspend the accessories from this track, making you feel more at home in your porch awning. You can use the flexi side doors for extra ventilation in the air awning by unzipping at the top. They can also be removed fully and replaced with a Varkala Annex to add extra space for sleeping guests. The Skylight windows in roof work with the large clear windows to provide lots of daylight and a fantastic view of outside, you can even enjoy some stargazing at night time!

By utilizing Vango’s famous AirBeam technology, the Varkala Connect 280 inflatable awning ensures set up is stress free with a pitching time of only 18 minutes! Once inflated the air beam tubes are robust and provide the awning with great stability. The webbing storm straps can be used in poorer weather conditions for extra security. The smooth curve air beams maximise headroom inside the awning and door height, giving you a larger and more usable space to enjoy.
