after a bit of a lead time we finally got delivery of our Air Awning end of august this year and managed a few trips to try it out. so here it is..

Vango Baletto Air awning purchased from Charles camping, including the ICCC Discount landed us at €700. bargain.( RRP is about €899.00). included in the pack was the storm straps,two wheel arch covers,draught skirt and pump. it is an airawning and this model has the option of a single inflation point, or multiple points. we found using the multiple points was the easier option. it packs down nicely into a large carry bag and weighs in at approx 25kgs. we managed a respectable 20 minutes set up time once we got the hang of it. 

the windows are clear and all come with easy fit curtains. the entrance door is a 60/40 split making entry and exit smooth.the vango also came with the new draught excluders for the side of the van, but we found them a bit fiddley to be honest.there are additional airbeams that help stabilise the roof and once it was set up we found it to be a sturdy piece of kit.

also included are steel pegs in their own bag to keep dirt away from the canvas. according to the specs it is a 150D fabric and is reportably durable against colour fade from the sun ( not really an issue in ireland!!) and we found it held up well against some heavy downpours.

All in all its an easy set up for 2 persons and it looks well, its a charcoal and grey fabric and fitted well and tightly against the caravan. awning carpet is an optional extra.

a great buy for us and we hope to get many years of wear and tear out of it. 8/10.



 
if it cant be fixed with a hammer, its an electrical fault......

Liam - quick question.... How does the ICCC discount work? is it on all products at Charles Camping or just some of their stock?

It’s on all products inside the store tourer, but can’t confirm if it’s on their caravan sales…..that could be a bit costly…..

hi all, thought id bump this back up as the awning is now up for sale! we've taken delivery of our new motorhome and the awning is now redundant. we only used it on a very few trips, maybe 3 weeks in total and it is in mint condition. asking €500.
