The Vango Family Shelter is a huge tarp that you can put over the front of your tent to protect help shelter your family from the rain and still enjoy the outdoors.

I have discussed before about the usefulness of having a camping tarp in your kit, and have these video instructions on how to put up a tarp.

Well, being a bit if a tarp fan, I was really impressed when I saw this Vango Family Shelter. It’s basically one large tarp that you put over the front of your tent.

There’s plenty of space to shelter under here!

Now I’ve not got my hands on one yet to try it myself, but from the details and looks, it will be a really good addition to any family camping kit.

There’s only one pole too, with the rest of the tarp structure supported by the tent.

It’s a similar price to other tarp kits and includes the pole, for ease of use and looks, this is worth considering IMHO. It’s certainly cheaper and more flexible than a tent awning. I see no reason why you couldn’t pitch this over a side door of the tent if you prefer.

The pole is supplied and can be extended to a height of 220 cm.

The material is also fire retardant, so it makes a great shelter for cooking under.

Great for creating more outside living space when the weather isn’t as cooperative!

    PLEASE DON’T USE THIS LINK IF IT IS THE FAMILY SHELTER YOU WANT!! Unfortunately, the link on this page goes to the Vango Adventure Tarp, which is not the same thing. I didn’t notice and have got something suitable for a one-man tent rather than a family one. The family shelter is excellent and deserves 5 stars, but the Adventure Tarp is tiny and neither use nor ornament, hence the one star.

      Sorry the link you used wasn’t to the correct item. We’ve noticed some retailers, especially Amazon, swapping the links to an alternative product when they run out of stock. This isn’t something we approve of and we aren’t notified.

    The Vango Family shelter is very versatile. You can use it on the front or side of your tent. We find it particularly helpful to use above the front door to make it a rain safe entrance.
