Awning type

Hi. I bought a Skandika Korsika 10. Still in the box. I know I know. I've read the horror stories too but I can't return it. I need an awning but I don't know which. It's not a tunnel tent, it's kinda star shaped. Google images will give you what I mean. Also a picture here. I don't want to spend more than £80 and I don't care about a colour match. Any advice? I read all the advice on awnings on this website but couldn't at the end of the day see a recommended universal awning. Cheers
  1. Hi Adrian,

    I think, as your research has found, you don’t have any options.

    Although they say the height is 210cm, I think that is only the height at the top of the dome and the entrance is lower.
    However, even taken that into account, the only thing that may come close is the Vango Iris 500 Awning

    It’s probably not a great fit and outside your budget.

    I think your best option is to use a camping tarp and some windbreaks to create an extra shelter, but an enclosed awning that fits is looking unlikely, unfortunately.

  1. We’re traveling to pitch perfect camping in bath from Sandbach with our 3 kids. My husband could get the week off so we’re gone for a full week. Longest trip yet with our 1 year old, 3 year old and 9 year old.
