  1. Hi Gav, my New Years pledge is to find a porch or awning for my Hi gear Tourer tent!! It’s 230high and 426wide and I’m totally flummoxed as to which porch to get. I would like one that closes as the original tent has an open porch already and my cooking stuff gets wet on occasion!!! Can you please advise? I’ve been looking in your site but the Kalahari doesn’t seem to have a groundsheet or a good write up!!!

    • Hi Di,

      Well, yes, the Hi Gear Kalahari does appear to be the most obvious dimension fit. An alternative is to look at the Vango Exceed Tall awning. It’s slightly smaller than the 230 cm height, but since it is a side awning, you shouldn’t have much of a problem with that.
      The 2017 season awnings and shelters will be coming into shops over the next couple of months, and so there might be a better option then.
