Isabella Penta Etna Full Caravan Awning - 2021
Penta Etna is a perfect full caravan awning for permanent pitching - a 3.5m depth without the nuisance of a centre pole and designed so that every inch of space is used. It will give you the stability you need in all weathers, the spaciousness allowing you to have as many guests as you wish, and a multitude of natural light entering through the enormous front and side panel windows as well as the brand new innovative light strips in the middle of the roof. Moreover, the main front and side panel windows feature a frosted foil in their lower sections - this doesn't only make them look good, but also reinforces them, preventing tearing and damage.

The Penta Etna is produced in Isabella's well known Isacryl 295g/m², their optimal, durable, breathable, fibre-dyed acrylic material. Isacryl has the highest achievable fade-resistance thanks to the pigmentation method. The density of the weave plus the impregnation all the way through prevents water ingress. Nevertheless, Isacryl is a breathable material, which facilitates the best possible indoor climate in the awning.
The roof, on the other hand, is made of IsaRoof 285 g/m² - a UV acrylate coated polyester, with an added top coat in 2 layers. This perfect roof material will protect you from the sun, so you can find shelter in your Penta Etna. Moreover, another special feature of this amazing awning is the overhang all the way around, which will provide you with extra shelter outside the awning. This means, that you can unzip and remove your front and side panels when it's raining, without the water accessing the awning - perfect for those post-heat summer precipitations.
In the summer, you will appreciate the mosquito nets in both sides of the awning. They will allow you to breathe in the fresh air of the campsite/countryside from the comfort of your awning, without the annoyance of even the smallest bugs. As with previous models, you can find front panel ventilation at the top too, because Isabella cares about you catching the smallest breeze, even in the hottest weathers; they want you to feel fully comfortable.
Isabella's doctrine is 'Feel Free' and indeed, you are free to choose several optional items which will flexibly change up the design and use of your Penta Flint. You can further extend the already generous space of Penta with Annexe Etna or Sand 220 either by clicking here or via the 'Buy Together' tab above. On hot summer days, you may also need extra shelter just outside of your awning, which is why we recommend purchasing a Door Canopy for your awning. In the off-seasons, on the other hand, you may want extra peace of mind with Storm Securing Set. For both winter and summer, the Inner Roof which can be selected in the options above is an absolute must; it will minimise condensation and keep good temperature homeostasis in your Penta Flint. You can read about the inner roof at the bottom of the page.
You have a choice between the Zinox frame and Zinox MegaFrame. Here is a little information about both to let you decide:
The Zinox Steel frame is hot galvanised both inside and out to extend its life and to meet all load-bearing requirements. The steel frame is made of ISO-certified steel. The strength of the Zinox steel frame makes it particularly suitable for pitching your caravan permanently. Caravanning in the off-peak seasons demands great structural stability due to weather conditions such as strong winds and snow.
Zinox MegaFrame supplies you with the highest possible strength, stability and durability in the most inclement weathers. It is a tubular steel frame (material thickness: 32mm/1.2mm so much wider than the standard Zinox) with welded corners and MegaFix on the poles. MegaFrame is designed for year-round use with a full awning which can remain standing all year and can withstand most powerful storms, snowfall and torrential rain. The Zinox MegaFrame is supplied with two extra rafter poles, as well as one Hercules Triple. This is a great deal from Isabella, as Hercules Triple is a brilliant product, improved even further for the new line. This device provides optimal tightening of the awning to ensure that the canvas is correctly tensioned. It counteracts wind noise and provides much greater stability of the whole awning! This in turn, not only makes your holidays even more enjoyable but it also extends the life of the awning as the load is evenly spread over all its parts. The handle and swingarm are cast in aluminium, so Hercules Triple weighs just 250 g. This is definitely the frame to choose if you want to challenge your awning to the most adverse weather conditions.
Both frames are made of 4 layers:

This amazing accessory was designed specifically for Penta Flint and it is like no other; look how great it looks in the photo! It makes Penta Flint a home. It has a door in the middle and windows on both sides for easy access and to see the rest of your spacious awning. This partition will not only separate the awning into compartments, allowing family members to have some 'me' time; it will also keep good temperature homeostasis in both 'rooms'. This is because a smaller area will lose heat slower, which means that the insides of your Penta will be kept nice and warm in colder climates - making it cosy and a comfortable place to be in.
Recommended for camping in the off season.
If you use your awning in winter, condensation is bound to happen on the roof which is where warm air meets cold air outside of the awning. However, you can minimise this natural process within your awning with Isabella’s Inner Roof – a roof liner which is easy to install and will put the roof poles out of sight for a nicer look in your living space. It will absorb any condensation that forms and promote good thermal regulation within your awning. Isabella thought of everything, so there is a zip in the Inner Roof where you can have the lamp cables pulled out, allowing you to have nice warm light in your awning.
Available for G16-G24 sizes.
