Building on the popularity of the Kela and Idris the Faros Low is designed as a smaller, lighter-weight awning for Van based Conversions.
It is slightly smaller that the aforementioned Kela & Idris and does not have the option of a clip in inner tent. You can buy a special freestanding inner tent for the Faros Low.
To help keep the Faros a Small, lightweight driveaway awning Vango has used Fibreglass poles and its Sentinel Active polyester fabric. Sentinel Active is a 70 denier fabric, designed as a strong lightweight polyester, it give a smaller, lighter weight pack-size. The groundsheet is a separate Linked in groundsheet. This does give the advantage of easier cleaning and the option to leave the groundsheet out on hard standings or rocky ground.
The Faros Low still features Vangos TBS II system which is patented to Vango and increase the awnings performance in windy conditions. TBS is basicly a system of straps and buckles that you can clip in place internally to give additional stability to the awning.
The windows are large clear PVC with toggle up blinds for privacy
Although designed as a lighter-weight value for money driveaway Awning the Faros Low is not short of features. When space is at a premium in a smaller campervan conversion then the Faros Low is worth considering
Low Height for camper-van conversions with a fixing height between 180 and 210cm
