    I cannot find a porch for my hi gear rock 5 can anyone suggest an alternative that will fit please?

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Ria,

      I’m drawing a blank too. Even the universal extensions could be a problem on the Hi Gear Rock 5. You’ll have better luck finding a side porch, but as your side door is near the front slope of your tent, it could be a less than perfect fit.

      If you just need somewhere to shelter, we’ve been using a High Peak Tarp this year instead of a porch or extension. http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/camping/camping-tips/high-peak-tarp/

      If you really need an extension though, the closest I’ve found so far is the Vango Excel Large Side Awning (on this page http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/camping/camping-tips/universal-tent-extensions/ ). It *might* fit the side of the Rock 5, but a bit of a gamble.

      Hope that’s of some help.

      Cheers,
      Gav

  • Ria Swayze

    wow thanks Gav that’s great help!

  • Dawn Bartram

    We are looking for a front porch to fit our Easycamp Ancona 400, any ideas please. This will be our first family camping holiday so don’t want to spend too much ?
    Thanks

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Dawn, I’m having difficulties trying to find the dimensions of the Ancona 400. How talk is it?
      Cheers,

  • Ian

    I’m having real trouble trying to find a front extension for my Vango Samara/Athena 600 and wondered if you could suggest any other extension that may fit?
    Many Thanks

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Ian,

      Yes, I’ve been having a good a look too, but not found anything that’s an exact match.

      Finding something to fit the front of the Samara/Athena 600 I think is going to be quite difficult.

      The new ‘Vango Exclusive Side Awning Large’ (see here http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/camping/tent-canopies-porches-extensions/?brand=Vango&frm-page-62612=1) looks as if it has the right height to go over the top of your tent, but if course is a different colour.

      I’m not sure how well it will marry up to the sides of the tent, but looking at the profile, may not be too far off.

      If you only need a shelter for some cooking or sitting out of showers, you may want to get a tarp shelter. That’s what we’ve been using this year.

      Hope that’s been of some help.

      Cheers,
      Gav

      • Ian

        Thanks for the quick reply Gav, I’ll check out one you suggested, I may indeed go down the tarp shelter route.
        Cheers

    universal extensions for our kampa hayling 4 for our tent but with no joy can anyone help many thanks .

  • Sarah

    Hi, I’m having huge problems trying to find canopy/extension for our vango Icarus 600, any suggestions on alternatives that fit the tent well will be very much appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Sarah

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Sarah,

      Yes, it does look like there aren’t any Icarus 600 canopies available at the moment.

      The Icarus 600 is 200cm high when pitched? If so, you might be able to get something from a different brand to create a side canopy. Something like the Kampa Watergate 8 Enclosed Canopy for example (on this page http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/camping/camping-tips/universal-tent-extensions/?frm-page-62657=3), though you’ll need to be careful with a side extension as the front of the Icarus slopes right next to the side door.

      Alternatively, you might want to get a tarp shelter like this one http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/camping/camping-tips/high-peak-tarp/

      Hope that helps.
      Cheers,
      Gav

      • Sarah

        Thank you, not sure if we have done the right thing but we did manage to get hold of vango and they have told us the Isis 600 enclosed canopy does fit the Icarus 600 as well as the Lamont 600 canopy. We decided to go with the Isis one as it is green. I will update on how well this works as it seems lots of people with the vango Icarus 600 are struggling to find a suitable extension. Many Thanks for your help.

        • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

          Thanks for the update Sarah. That’s great news.
          Let us know how it works out ;-)

  • Gareth

    Hi i’m struggling to find a front extension for my Outwell Nevada 4 (300cm wide x 200cm high). Anyone got any suggestions?
    Many thanks

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Gareth,

      As I suspect you’ve found out already, the newer 4 person Outwell Nevada is slightly larger than their previous Outwell Nevada 4. I think it’s going to be a challenge to find something that will fit over the front, or the side, and match the colour, of the Nevada 4.

      A tarp or basic awning, like the Coleman Classic Awning (see here http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/camping/tent-canopies-porches-extensions/?brand=Coleman&tents=&height=205#results ) may be the only option.

      This setup is fine for cooking under or sitting out of the rain, and a few windbreaks down the side and around the front can make it more sheltered and private.

      Hope that helps.

      Cheers,
      Gav

      • Gareth

        Thanks Gav that’s really helpful. I might consider that, i was hoping for a more enclosed space but might be ok with a few windbreaks.
        Yeah my tent is the older Nevada 4 and is about 60cm narrower than the new Nevada M which means the new Nevada extension would be a bit baggy.

        I did find the Gelert lakesbury 4 which is a similar size, it’s 2cm higher but 10cm narrower than my tent. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gelert-Lakesbury-Canopy-Chestnut-Sandshell/dp/B004O6MH9S
        Never tried fitting an extension to a tent before but guessing it will just sit a bit higher where it joins the tent with a slight gap at ground level? Is that right?

        Thanks,
        G

        • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

          Being slightly higher is normally OK, as a lot of extensions have material that goes over the top of your tent. See the picture I took of a Gelert Side Porch that wraps around the tent.
          Some extension though are specific to certain models and will have clip-on points that can only be found on the matching tent. However, a simple extension that has a flap that goes over the top of your tent can be made to work in most cases.

          Ideally a good fitting extension won’t have a gap at ground level. There are lots of extensions with groundsheets, so a gap wouldn’t be good ;-)

          • Gareth

            Thanks for your help Gav. I’ve realised the Gelert extension is quite heavy with its steel poles so gonna try the tarp approach this time and try and find a lighter alternative further down the line. Off to St Davids tomorrow so hoping for good weather!
            Great website btw, gonna try your campfire roasted tomatoes recipe while i’m away!

          • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

            Thanks Gareth.
            We went to St Davids a couple of months ago. Have a great time and enjoy the tomatoes!

  • Paul

    Hi. Can anyone please help me find a Hi Gear Rock 4 canopy. I think they have stopped making them but don’t want to buy a new tent. Many thanks.

  • Nathan Shane

    Hi there. We have just purchased a Vango exodus V 800 airbeam 2014 and also went for a canopy as well. We purchased the Exclusive airbeam canopy, before I open it I wanted to check if this would fit as the canopy that is meant to go with the tent is the Elite airbeam canopy. They have the same height and footprint so I thought they would be interchangeable.
    Is that correct? I didn’t have time to put both up this evening and the tent is now down also. Thanks
    Nathan

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Nathan,

      Firstly, nice tent ;-)

      We have an Outwell air framed tent and pitching is so quick.

      As with regard to the extension for the Vango Exodus V800, I can only advise on the information I have from Vango, and according to the literature I have, the ‘AirBeam Elite Side Awning’ fits the Exodus V800.
      The AirBeam Exclusive Side Awning fits the Infinity 600/800 and the Lumen V400/500/600XL… but this may not be a problem…

      These extensions certainly look the same, but one is for the Elite Range and the other for the Exclusive Range.
      The AirBeam Prestige Elite Range (such as the Vango Exodus V800) has 6000mm polyester, where as the AirBeam Prestige Exclusive Range has 5000mm polyester.
      Unless Vango have a slight colour difference between the materials, the Exclusive canopy having 1000mm less hydrostatic head won’t make any real difference.

      If in doubt, contact where you purchased from or e-mail info@vango.co.uk

      Hope that’s helpful.

      Cheers,
      Gav

      • Nathan Shane

        Thanks Gav, we think it’s a great tent also – a dream putting up. That’s we we thought with the differences and they are the same colour on the bag and also the same colour name. We’ll have to bite the bullet and put the tent back back up with the canopy as well.

        Thanks for your help Gav. I’ll see how we get on when I’ve got some good weather to try putting them both up.

        The 1000mm I hope won’t make too much of a difference

        Thanks again
        Nathan

  • Amanda

    Hi. I have a Coleman Lakeside 4. The Gelert universal (large) is the same height but seems much wider (400). The tent tapers to 180 at the door but is 320 at its full width. Any ideas of what may fit?

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Amanda,

      Yes, I agree the Gelert Universal side extension will be a difficult fit.
      With the Coleman Lakeside 4 you may be best with a tarp shelter if you don’t need an enclosed shelter.
      Have you looked at the Coleman Classic awning?

      Cheers,
      Gav

      • Amanda

        Many thanks Gav. Yes but I’ll take another look. Cheaper too!

  • Sarah

    Hi we have an old Vango Amazon 600 which we they dont make anymore! We really want a side porch to cook in and were debating whether the Vango Excel Large Side awning would work? Any advise would be great

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Sarah,

      Yes, the Vango Excel Large Side awning looks a good option. The new Vango Langley 600 has similar dimensions to the Amazon 600.

      Try contacting Vango to confirm. A few people have had responses.

      Cheers,
      Gav

      • Sarah

        Many thanks. I contacted them last summer and they said that they didn’t do anything appropriate which I thought was weird!! I will get the vango excel and fingers crossed .

  • angel maggot

    hi I have a corado 6 tent which they no longer do and am looking for a front porch any ideas which porch would fit

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      I couldn’t spot anything that would fit the front of the Hi Gear Corado 6 tent.

      If you wanted to provide extra cooking space and somewhere to shelter at the front of your tent you may want to think about using a tarp shelter.

      Alternatively, if you want an enclosed space I’m wondering if the Hi Gear Voyager 6 (http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/camping/tent-canopies-porches-extensions/?brand=Hi%20Gear) would work as a side porch. It appears to have enough height for the Corado 6.

      If that’s something that would still work for you, I advise ringing Go Outdoors (0114 292 1073) to see if they think that combination would work.

      Cheers,
      Gav

  • Terry

    Hi Gav
    First off great site
    I’ve just bought the Vango Inspire 600 and although it has a porch area (but
    just not quite wide enough for kitchen and shade) I’m looking to extend this
    area with either a tarp or extension so seeing what you would recommend for
    this wide tent. If we go for a tarp (maybe High Peak Tarp /2, 3m or 4m not
    sure) do you think it’d be okay to strap it over /onto the front porch so the
    tarp will be sitting on top of the tent with guys holding it down and maybe 3
    king poles out front with the middle one higher. Do you think this could work,
    just don’t know if you should have a tarp touching the tent (especially
    airbeam). We’re heading up to Yorkshire this weekend and looks like the weather
    is setting in.
    Thanks
    Terry

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Terry,

      We put the High Peak Tarp in front of the tent and not over it. There may be a gap of half a foot or so between the small porch on our tent and the tarp, but this little gap has never caused any problems.

      We also sometimes put it to the side of the tent, as we did this weekend, where it would have spoilt the view form the tent.

      You could put the tarp over the top of your tent, especially if you got the big tarp. There’s plenty of material there to make a lot of things work.

      We got the very large High Peak Tarp and it is very big – perhaps a bit too big. I used it this weekend initially with 3 extra king poles, and then added a further two smaller ones. This gave us plenty of space when a cold wet front moved in yesterday morning, so we could sit under the shelter, cook breakfast, have a brew, and even a small morning fire. We also managed to get the trailer under as well as the kitchen and 3 tables (out of shot).

      Have a good time in Yorkshire.

      Cheers,
      Gav

  • Tracy

    I have a Gelert Horizon 6 tent. Looking for a side porch. The Gelert one is quite expensive. Can you suggest a cheaper alternative.

  • Gareth

    I have an urban escape akashi 4 tent. I’m looking for a side porch but i’m a bit confused by the height of the porch i need. The highest point of ten is 210 cm & there’s another measurement which looks like door height at 180 cm. Do i go by the highest point or by the door height, Thank you

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Gareth,
      You want to use the tent height, not the door height. This is because the extension has to go over the top part of the Akashi tent to make a weatherproof shelter over the top of the door.
      Hope that helps.
      Cheers,
      Gav

      • gareth

        Thank you Gav, could i ask one more question. Could you recommend one that would fit. Sorry i’m new to camping.

        • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

          210cm is quite high.
          You could go for a basic shelter like the Coleman Classic Awning, that will give some protection from the elements.
          Alternatively there’s the Gelert universal side awning. It’s a bit smaller than the highest point in your tent but there may be enough slack to make it work. Check the dimensions and see for yourself.
          Finally, if you just need a shelter to cook and sit under you could use a tarp kit.
          We’ve been using the High Peak Tarp this year. You can find our review on this website.

          The tarp doesn’t extend your tent but does create a useful shelter next to it, and is an ideal place for cooking.

          Cheers,
          Gav

  • davymac

    We are new to camping and have recently bought a regatta premium 4 man weekend family tent H205 W400 L320. If you could please advise us on a front or side extension that would fit our tent or an awning that would give us some extra living space we would be delighted as not sure what we are looking for!

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Well for the Regatta Premium you may find it hard to find an exact fit, I’m sure a few things could be made to work.

      There’s a few options here http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/camping/tent-canopies-porches-extensions/?brand=&tents=&height=205#results

      For a completely sealed extension, something like the Hi Gear Kalahari might fit onto the side. However, the way the Regatta Premium slopes downwards over the sleeping area might mean it’s not a perfect fit all the way around, but would probably work.

      Another option may be to opt for the Coleman Classic Awning, which you could fit to the front of your tent.
      This isn’t a completely sealed extension, but provides some additional protection from the elements. Add a few windbreaks and it becomes a good shelter to cook under and sit if the weather isn’t so good.

      Finally, you could always try using a tarp extension (this is what we’ve been using this year – see our High Peak tarp review).
      Like the Coleman Classic Awning it won’t provide a completely sealed extension to your tent, but it does provide a flexible shelter to cook, sit and eat under.

      Hope that’s been of some help.

      Cheers,
      Gav

      • davymac

        Thanks for the advice Gav:) we’ll look into them.

  • Rachel

    New camper….any idea if the canopy of a hi gear corado 4 will fit our icarus 500? Just want something cheap & cheerfull to keep the rain off the door & a little shelter, slight difference in the measurement but not sure how flexible they are x any advice please xxx

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Rachel,

      Although the Hi Gear Corado 4 canopy is going cheap at the moment, I don’t think it would be a good fit for the Vango Icarus 500, as apart from being slightly higher, the side door of the Icarus is right next to where the front of the tent slopes away. This means that the canopy will have difficulty sealing over the top and around the side of the tent. It might not be too good at keeping the rain off that side door.

      If you are after something cheap then have a look at the Coleman Classic Awning http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/camping/tent-canopies-porches-extensions/?brand=Coleman

      That should be big enough to provide enough shelter to cover the the front door of the tent. It’s also a neutral colour so wouldn’t look out of place on your Vango Icarus ;-)

      Alternatively, you could create a tarp shelter, but unless you pulled part of the tarp over your tent, it won’t solve your door problem.

      Hope that helps.
      Cheers,
      Gav

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi,
      I couldn’t spot anything exactly the same. The Voyager Elite is quite high.
      You could go with a separate shelter such as a tarp. Alternatively a simple generic shelter like the Coleman Classic awning.
      Cheers,
      Gav

  • snapdragon

    Hi
    We have an Outwell Michigan 8. Please can you recommend an extension/porch canopy that will fit our tent? It seems impossible to source a secondhand Michigan extension! Many thanks :)

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi,
      Not sure on this one. The Outwell Trout Lake 4 front extension looks the right sort of size, but that extension is designed to fit onto the front of the Trout Lake, so not sure you could make it fit the Michigan tent.
      You may have to go with something other than an outwell, such as a Coleman Classic awning to provide a bit more shelter, or even a tarp shelter.
      Cheers,
      Gav

    Hi, I have recently bought a Gelert Bliss 4 but would like to extend it with a canopy? Could you recommend a canopy that would fit the Bliss 4 please, thanks

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Michelle,
      As you have probably found it’s hard to find an extension for the Gelert Bliss 4 but the Hi Gear Corado 4 is the same tent and Go Outdoors are currently selling off them very cheaply http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/hi-gear-corado-4-canopy-p146502
      It is a different colour of course.
      Alternatively the Coleman Classic Awning may be of use, but check the measurements to see if it is the sort of extension you can make work.
      Cheers,
      Gav

    Hi could you recommend a tent that would fit a gelert lakesbury 4 porch

    • http://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/ Gav

      Hi Mark,

      We normally get the question of what extension would fit my tent, not the other way around ;-)

      If I’m correct, isn’t the Gelert Lakesbury 4 porch to fit over the end of the Lakesbury tent rather than the side? End fitting porches are much harder to use with other tents than side porches, since the ends tend to be very specific to the design of the tent.

      You might be able to find something that’s under 2m high and fits within the dimensions of the porch, but it may be hard to find something that’s a good fit.

      Cheers,
      Gav

      At a required height of 215cm, you may only be able to create a tarp shelter.

      Cheers,
      Gav

    Hi
    ive got a Vango Icarus 600 tent in Moss and would like to buy the front enclosed canopy for it which is causing a problem. Could you let me know if i can get one from somewhere or alternatively what canopy would be compatible for it.
    thanks
    julie

    We have a moss green Vango icaris 500 circa 2011? Can you recommend an awning to fit it. We have searched for the awning for this tent in that colour with no success . Thank you . Jilly
