I'm working on a 'mid design right now, playing with ideas on peak height, and thought I'd try to eliminate some of the fussing by getting your input.
This'll be a shocker to hear, I know, but I'm trying to use as little material and to keep it as low as possible while keeping decent usable internal space. 48 inches at peak is what I have in mind... but the DuoMid is 54 inches for the outer, and my SL3 is about 62.
According to some calcs I roughed out, the difference between 48 and 54 inches would be about 1.5 inches of additional clearance one foot away from the outer edge. Not sure that's a big deal.
Another part of the reason for the height is to accommodate my poles... 49 inches, or to easily use them with a short extension for an inverted "V."
Thoughts? What's the shortest you think I could get away with?
