PostSubject: Vango Kela IV    Mon Apr 23, 2018 12:53 pm

We recently bought a Vango Kela IV and now we've used it a couple of times I thought I would do a quick post.

We got it from Camping & General Canvey Island, as we bought it in store we got 10% off.

Thoughts so far, love it - it provides plenty of usable space and it's really easy to set up although getting it back in the bag has proved a bit of a struggle. f anyone has any folding tips I would love to hear from them . . .

The first time we set it up it was raining and the ground was really muddy, far from ideal so getting the tunnel distance right was a bit of a struggle and after returning home a couple of hours had to be spent giving the ground sheet a really good clean. I did worry as it was filthy but responded very well to some elbow grease and hot soapy water!

The second time out we had the weather on our side so managed to get it all open and pulled out properly. Still struggled to get it back in the bag though . . .

We've got a Vango Attar, which originally came with a sun canopy packed in the same bag as the awning. I've now given up trying to put the sun canopy back in the bag with the awning, but at least it reduces the weight when I want to heave it up onto the roof rack.

For the life of me I can't work out how they got the pump and peg bags in there as well

I had same issue with the size of bag for Vango Kela (about 4 years ago). I contacted vango and explained, and they sent me a bigger bag - was a good bag they sent with wheels too.

Hello Dee.

I live on Canvey Island and have been acquainted with Camping & General for several decades. When I get time, I might take a squint at what's available for my 1973 VW "1600" Type 2 Westfalia Continental campervan.
