Thank you for this photo; the rear looks just like the Sublite now. I can't make out from this photo whether or not the '09 Contrail still offers an adjustable rear strut, or if it is now identical to the Sublite rear strut. As an owner of both, I'm wondering if you could clarify?
I tried out a Sublite Sil, and actually prefer it's simplified rear strut system over the adjustable Contrail system (based on the photos I've seen, anyway). Wondering what your thoughts are, since I've never used a Contrail. I know versatility is one of the strengths of the Contrail, but the adjustable rear strut has always looked a little fussy to me.
Also, now that you've had both for a few months, would you give one of them a preference over the other for all-around 3-season shelter? HOw about warm-weather breathability? And finally, how about 3+ season shelter? Is the benefit of the shorter Sublite with it's more centered peak worth the awning tradeoff that's open to the rain in terms of storm worthiness? Thanks in advance; a direct comparison of these features would be of tremendous help.
