Is There Such a Thing as an Universal Camping Canopy?

I have a Venture 500 (2007) and would like to buy a canopy to slight extend our living small. Can't find a Venture 500 canopy, so was wondering if there is a universal or another brand of canopy which would be compatible with the Venture?

Will bump in the morning

Feel bad that you haven't had an answer, though I have no idea I'm afraid.

I always thought this was really cool, would that work?

Failing that you could try asking on UKCS, someone there might know.

We saw this Coleman Classic Awning on a campsite in Gloucestershire last summer and it looks the dogs doo-daa's. It looks to be in stock on the Argos website.

Maybe this would fit?

We've got the Coleman JetLi linked to. It does the job and we can roll it over the other way to make an enormous sun canopy (tie it off to winbreak in front of the tent). But dodgy in wind.

Hey I thought no one cared Will have a look at all these suggestions.

Was thinking MN campers had all gone camping!

we have the vango tamor 500, which people say is just the venture 500 with a new name.

we use the vango large canopy linked above by 3rdnparty, bought from the ebay seller shown, it is not listed as fitting the tamor, but it does, perfectly, doubling the size of the tent, it is fab and I loveit.
