Vango Sonoma 250 Caravan Inflatable Porch Awning 2018
The new Sonoma expands Vango's luxury AirAwning® range for 2017. Featuring their Sentinel Pro 420 fabric providing superior strength and comfort, pre-angled SuperBeams™ that provide great head room and additional interior space. Like all of Vango's AirAwnings®, the Sonoma is supplied with a PVC draught skirt and foam-filled protective pads for the uprights. These help to prevent draughts and ensure a snug fit between your caravan and the awning. The Sonoma also features a covered front entrance providing great protection from the elements. Additional features on the Sonoma include annexe compatibility to enhance your living space, elegant zip-up privacy curtains, lantern hanging points and large diamond-clear windows. The Sonoma is a welcome addition to the side of your caravan and provides a home-from-home relaxing conservatory.
As a new awning from Vango for 2017, this is one very smart awning to look out for, perfect for those who are touring and on holiday for a week or so, with a top-quality material of Sentinel Pro 420 fabric that's durable but lightweight at the same time.
This awning is different to all the others due to the front porch, which provides a little shelter from the sun and rain, and protection over the front door. It's also a great place to store a few of your belongings, such as cookers, chairs, bikes etc.
The front door is D-shaped so folds back to one side. It also has a curtain on for privacy and a mesh screen to allow plenty of airflow in and out to prevent condensation and insects. The two side panels can be used as doors as well and these can be completely zipped out, making it lighter when feeding it through the awning rail. Both side panels are able to take an optional inflatable annexe, which can be used for more general space or for sleeping compartments.
The curtains are something that customers really like about this Vango awning. They're simple and smart, you just zip them up or down to the level you prefer and they tuck into themselves at the bottom, keeping the awning nice and tidy.
With Vango’s inflatable Airbeam technology this is one of the quickest inflatable awnings on the market, having separate beams so that any problems can easily be sorted out. An optional extra is the Airbeam 12v DC electric pump which helps even more.
An added bonus is that, with Vango being a British company, after-sales support is excellent.
