I love pop-up tents, I have a lot of them, a 2 man one, a 3 man one, 3 five men ones. I like them because they mean that we can leave on a Friday night with our 4 kids and 2 dogs and arrive near the sunset, unpack the pop-up tents, unpack the sleeping bags and we are ready for the evening. We arrived once in France after a long journey and tried to make a tent of 9 men in the dark. It took us an hour and it was almost midnight.
However, the disadvantage of the pop-up window is that they are not pop-down. It is a huge embarrassing struggle that you bind with spring wires, resembling a woman possessed of some kind of animatronic nylon refuge that gets into shape whenever you think you’re near to find it in this form of disc Flat and round This will retrieve it in the bag. The cheap camping trip may begin to look like a fake economy while you are working on the divorce costs with you both proclaiming that the job of putting the tent away really belongs to the other person and why should you be One to do it all the time.
Persevere! The pop-up tents are worth it. I usually take 2 small tents pop up, now our older children are teenagers that they like their own space. I find that the flexibility of this work works better than our huge 9 man tunnel tent, which takes so long to bear and that older children want their torches to be read later than the younger ones want to stay awake.
When we arrive, I just set up the pop-up tents to go in, and then I can put the porches on the door the next day, to expand the space we have. Be careful to ask if puppy tents are allowed when you reserve your land, as you might end up being petted for two pitches.
I always prefer to have a double layer tent (with an inner tent and a fly leaf) for 2 reasons: heat and dryness. In a single skin tent, the condensation of your breath collects inside the tissue, so if some of you touch the nylon, the water will drop on you). When setting up my pop-up, they have the two skins tied together, so it does not slow down the pitching process. You basically find a flat piece of land, and unpack the tent and its shape is formed. Then you hang the wire cabinets at the front, sides and back, attach the ropes to the tent and screw them and you’re ready to go.
So How To Put Down Pop Up Tent Away?
1. Get a pop-up tent. Pop-up tents are different from traditional tents. They have a flexible frame that gets in shape as soon as the tent is released from its retaining strap. These tents are very light and fold almost flat.
2. Choose a good location. Find a flat place, ideally on a higher ground than the one that surrounds it. This means that your tent will not intensify when it rains and you will not sleep on a slope. In most campsites, you will have an area defined as your land. But if you go into a crowded field, do not immerse your tent too close to someone else. The sound moves easily between tents, and you might need space for lines and cooking. Give yourself a berth of 6 meters (20 feet) from all the neighboring tents.
3. Prepare the area. Keep stones, sticks or other sharp objects away that could damage the floor of your tent and make the floor uncomfortable to sleep.
4. Pop-up the tent. The important to put down the pop-up tent. Get the tent and pegs from the tent bag. Pull off the restraining band. The tent will ‘pop’ open. Turn the tent the right way up with the door in a position you are happy with. If you are forced to pitch on an incline or uneven surface, ensure the door faces downhill to prevent the tent flooding.
5. Peg the tent. Attach the tent to the ground by placing dowels in the buckles at each end of the tent. Push or hammer the pegs into the ground at a 45° angle toward the tent. This stops the flow of the wind. Your tent may have additional ankle positions along each side. If so, release each.
6. Adjust the guy rope. The tent will have twin cords already attached. Secure the cords in the ground at each end. Guy ropes are adjustable in the event that you are restricted by space. Adjust the slide to make the cables as tight as possible.
7. Give it a final check. Stand back and check your work. Make sure that each guy rope is secured and that the pegs are sunk into the ground. If anything looks wrong, make it right.
Practise putting the tent up and down in the garden before you go and perfect the technique in the privacy of your garden. It is quite easy once you know how!
