FOR 2021, 10 years on from when Vango launched its AirBeam technology, the company is launching the AirBeam® S.I Pro range – awnings (and tents) that can be inflated from a single point, but still retain an independent beam structure, which makes them easier to pitch.

There are two caravan awnings included in the range. The Balletto, available in a 200, 300 and 400 size, comes in Vango’s Elements 150 fabric, which makes it lightweight enough to go touring with you.

The Riviera Air 420, meanwhile, uses Vango’s new and extensively developed Elements All-Season fabric, which will withstand even the harsher months on a seasonal pitch.

While both have single-point inflation, they also have multiple deflation points, to make packing up so much easier.

It’s in the details

In celebration of the ten-year anniversary of AirBeam, Vango is offering customers a small preview into the design process behind their advances in pioneering design and Airbeam S.I Pro technology. A new video, created by the in-house team, transitions between 3D computer generated models and real-life imagery, to portray how the details are still as important to the brand after 55 years of design evolution. The one-minute preview offers an opportunity for designers and outdoor enthusiasts to understand the innovation and attention to detail which Vango strives for, to improve home from home comfort and experience in every product.

Vango: A quick history

Vango was established in the west of Scotland in 1966 (its name is a rearrangement of ‘Govan’, a suburb of Glasgow). The company remains based at the gateway to the Scottish Highlands in its headquarters at Port Glasgow.

Along with driveaway, motorhome and caravan awnings, the firm makes tents and other camping equipment for everyone from families to extreme mountaineers. It also works with the international charity Shelterbox to provide emergency relief in disaster zones.
