Allegedly the early Canvas ones were not all orange. Production moved to China in 2006?


we really need someone who knows these tents to add more info here please, not a model we have ever used

In terms of alternatives, this really is almost a one of a kind tent. Blacks of Greenock (who's factory was just up the road from Vango in Glasgow) made the Good Companions A Frame tents and some solid ridge tents too. If you like the ridge tent aspect/looks but are not so bothered about being able to survive mountains and snow storms then the Cabanon Isabelle and Relum equivalent are probably much better value for money - and almost certainly not orange too
