alright, back for help.
Tried pitching my new 2010 Double Rainbow for a 2nd time this week.. this time in light rain. In both my attempts, I had two problems:
1. The floor develops a half-arrow that Franco once said is a sign of something being wrong. I do have all 4 corners staked out as tight as possible and have those 4 outside bottom clips on the floor material clipped to the stake-out points.
Is even the central line of the arrow a problem? (I mean the fold in the floor fabric that runs in a straight line between the ends of the aluminum pole.)
(the above are pics of the same end of the tent).
2. The rain porch -- if I want to set up one hiking pole to hold up the rain porch, I seem to get very little clearance to enter the tent -- the entry way is pretty low but more importantly, there is little space between the guy line holding up the hiking pole and the stake holding down the other vestibule door.
Moving the hiking pole further away from the other door seems to make it unstable and the tension in the rain porch goes away..
