(Posting this again since half of the post disappeared into thin air last time. Hope it works this time. By the way, how can one control images that BPL has on its database, but that I can no longer access?)
Not so good
Very large foot print (133” L, 97”W )
(the SMD LS is 100” x91” , the TT Rainbow 102”x46”
Is this for the Wanderlust Nomad or the 2-4-2? If you look at the first photo in the previous post the Nomad surely doesn’t look to be 97” wide.
As for length, I think a lot of the footprint is offset by there being no extra length of guyline at the ends, which SMD LS and the TT Rainbow do have.
No real vestibule
No rain protected entry
Inner (tent) first set up only ? ( not sure if it can be integral (inner and fly together) )
The canopy could be raised and lowered according to the need for protection. Also, the canopy was integral to the ridgeline and could be rolled all the way up and out of the way (as you can see in picture # 4). In heavy rain the canopy could be pulled almost down to the ground, and it could also be shifted either forward or back to protect against the prevailing wind. Quite ingenious really.
No apex vents (that I can see...) so expect lots of condensation in the rain.
The entire rear, like the front, was mostly mesh with the canopy able to be angled according to the need for ventilation. I’d think that it was really quite airy inside.
