Just got an email from Yeomans saying you can preorder the Virginia 5 front canopy for 99. That's reduced from 130! I think I only paid 140 for the actual tent!

Just wondering whether others here think it's worth it at that price!?

I bought the Virginia as a quick weekender so a canopy would probably add a bit of unwanted complexity to that so might not be worth it anyway regardless of price!....

Its probably worth it if you want the canopy to match the tent, if not then doing as we did and buying the vango extension is a cheaper option and affords the same amount of space as the outwell!

It would seem that given that this is just an open ended extension with fibreglass poles it is rather expensive!

Definately worth it. At least thats what the wife said when she pre-ordered after a bottle of wine and several gin & tonics.
