Introducing Vango's Rapide III (3) 350 AirBeam Caravan Porch Awning, a delightful caravan awning for those short weekend and bank holiday weekends away. Named the Rapide because of its unique pre-curved single AirBeam that takes two minutes to inflate, complete with guying and pegging the Rapide can be pitch in around 12 minutes!

The Rapide benefits from a compact pack size making this awning suitable for those who like to stop-over at multiple campsite and therefore, those who require an awning that is beautifully simple, yet practical.

Upfront the Rapide III is instantly recognisable with thanks to its two windowed panel, roll back both doors or simply remove the entire front panel leaving you with a sun canopy for the side of your caravan – Idyllic for those summer holidays, just lounge outside with a glass of wine or two while listening to the birdsong. At the side, both left and right side, you get an access door with roll back toggles allowing you to vent the living area.
