New from Vango in 2019 and unchanged for 2020
The Bondi Low is a great value Non-driveaway awning for those who just require something better than a sun canopy . Being non driveway you will need to ensure your vehicle has an awning rail (awnings rail, Reimo Rail) to be able to attach the Bondi Low. The manufacturer states that you can use pole & clamp, but we would suggest this option has limited use as only older VW's vans with Gutter rails are really suitable for this method. Fig 8 used in the gutter would would work on Mazda Bongos but other this this we would advise you have an awning rail on your vehicle to get the best use of this awning.
Vango have this year released some keenly priced awnings. This has been accomplished by using lighter weight fabrics and reducing some of the specifications. The Bondi Low is in this range. Using Vango's Sentinel Active Polyester. This does not mean the awning will be any less waterproof than more expensive awnings in the Vango Line up. It does help reduce the pack size and in a small non driveway awning like the Bondi Low makes a far more manageable size and weight.
Despite the lower price Vango still incorporate there excellent TBS II system to provide stability in windy conditions.
The Bondi Low uses a simple single fibreglass pole with pre angled joints to erect the awning. This give more upright sides for more useable space. The Groundsheet is removable, giving the option of easy cleaning and leaving the groundsheet out if pitched on a hard standing or gravel pitch. The Groundsheet toggles down to give a flat trip free entry point into the awning. The windows feature toggle up blinds for privacy. The frond door with its large clear windows can be zipped back half way or all the way open to create an open canopy.
The Bondi Low offers Excellent valve for money when you need something a bit more secure than a sun canopy for privacy or storage on site. There is the option of purchasing a freestanding 2 berth inner tent if you need to accommodate extra guests.
Low height for attachment to vehicles with a fixing height of 180cm to 210cm
