The Vango Faros is one of the first poled drive-away awnings that Vango have made but they seem to have hit the nail on the head with this compact yet functional free-standing awning. Unlike other poled awnings the Faros has a door on the connection fabric, this means that you enter the vehicle without going through the awning itself. With two sizes to choose from, it really doesn’t matter what vehicle you have, the main body remains the same but the attachment tunnel will fit a Low (180-210cm) or Tall (245-290cm) camper.
This poled awning benefits from a clip-in groundsheet which gives you the versatility of making it enclosed if you prefer, once on the campsite. The Vango Faros can be pitched by one person if necessary as seen by our Attwoolls Pitching Videos. The awning uses space saving fibreglass poles to keep it compact when packed away, meaning that it can be stored easily for transit, these poles are pre-angled so that you can make the most of the footprint of the awning.
The Faros is amazing value for money and is spacious without being too big.
