Before we look at the Vango Tolga and Magra driveaway awnings in more detail, it’s important to remember Vango’s AirBeam technology, which is incorporated into these inspiring sport awnings. With 20 years of development, Vango’s AirBeam technology guarantees customers a really quick pitching time, enabling campers to enjoy their holiday straight away and make the most of the great outdoors. The AirBeams provide great strength against the elements, giving structre and stability to the awnings. Unswerving in their commitment to performance, Vango continually analyses every component to maximise function and in 2015 the Vango AirSpeed Valve was introduced, which is an easy to attach valve, located higher on the awning, making pump attachment much easier and convenient. Vango also presented their SuperBeams, which are a larger diameter beam to really enhance the stability and structure of the awnings (SuperBeams are 30% larger than normal AirBeams).
