Elevate your camping experience with the Xtender 2.5 Awning Tent, designed to perfectly complement the Eclipse Slimline 2.5 x 2.5m Awning. This purpose-built tent allows you to leave your camp intact while you take off for the day. Simply attach the zipper strip to the front sail track of your awning, and you're all set to go. When you're ready to leave camp but want to keep your shelter set up, just unzip the tent and roll up your awning. Upon returning to camp, park in the same spot, and your awning will quickly reattach, providing continuous coverage between your vehicle and sleeping space.

Although specifically designed to attach directly to an Eclipse Slimline 2.5m awning, the Xtender is also a uniquely designed freestanding tent that complements Eclipse 180 and 270 awnings. Set up your tent so that the built-in awning extension is just underneath your vehicle's awning, and you're good to go. Multiple Xtenders can be set up under one awning, offering dry and shady communal space for everyone, away from the elements.

The large front entrance and rear and side gusset windows provide excellent airflow and keep you dry in rainy weather. For additional shade, you can convert the detachable fly into an awning with the included twist-lock poles.

Like all Darche gear, the Xtender 2.5 Awning Tent is built to last. Constructed from durable 210D ripstop polyester oxford, it can withstand any harsh environment. This tent also boasts an impressive PU 2000mm water rating, and all seams are heat-sealed to keep you dry in rainy conditions. It features a 370gsm PVC removable bucket floor with adjustable corner points. The doorway is dual-zippered with privacy and superfine insect mesh, providing plenty of ventilation while keeping insects at bay.

**WHERE IT ALL BEGAN**

In 1991, Darche revolutionized the traditional swag market with the introduction of the Dome style swag. DARREN O’DWYER, the founder of Darche, along with his wife CHERYL (DAR-CHE), embarked on an eastern Australia journey. Wanting a shelter arrangement that was quick, practical, and easy to stow, Darren used his imagination and created a canvas shell with fiberglass poles, and the dome-style swag was born. Realizing the need for a suitable and purpose-built factory to meet demand, Darche partnered with Australian supply chain partners, becoming the leading swag and canvas converter in Australia.

Today, Darche is proudly owned by the Charles Parsons Group, who have been actively involved for over 20 years in supplying textile and trim componentry to Darche. Charles Parsons is the largest textile wholesaler in the Southern Hemisphere, with offices in every capital city of Australia, including offices in Fiji, Auckland, and Shanghai. The day-to-day operations of Darche occur in a warehouse facility based in Thomastown, Victoria, with a site area of more than 40,000m². Darche is overseen by experienced textile product developers, business strategists, and passionate staff who are outdoor enthusiasts with sound knowledge and experience.

**OUR PROMISE**

We are passionate, dynamic, and keen. We enjoy the same lifestyle choices as our consumers. We strive to provide our consumers with the very best value, reliability, and service, and most importantly, we recognize the trust they place in us. We welcome both positive and negative feedback from our consumers and promise to keep delivering while listening. We are mindful of our vulnerable environment and build our products to last the journey. We encourage lifetime use, and if over the years it requires attention, even if it is a discontinued product, we endeavor to find a solution, on a best effort basis, to have it back and performing for you.

**WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?**

Darche’s growth and shortage of experienced canvas converters and local machinists have led Darche to establish reputable offshore assembly and supply chain partners. Operating from four major plants purposely selected and audited by Darche, these facilities employ over 180 people, including machinists, assemblers, finishers, toolmakers, and QA/QC supervisors. It is important to note that Darche does not use trading houses or vertical arrangements offshore to source products. All product prototypes are developed in Australia by Darche and are involved from concept through to market release. Utilizing Charles Parsons accredited laboratories and leading processes, all developments are then rigorously tested at the Thomastown facility and again in real-life situations by developers.
