We bought aAthena 600 last year and as the weather was so bad last year we never got the opportunity to use it. We used the leaflet that came with the tent to try measuring up to see what pitch size we would need and it looks huge! Does anyone know if the sizes indicated include the guide ropes or is it just the actual tent.

 

Thanks

The tent size given will usually just be its footprint size.
To get the overall pitch size required you need to add at least 1m all round to allow for the guys.

Yes it is usually just the actual footprint of the tent though if it includes the guy ropes too the campsite will usually state this.

Fingers crossed for some good weather for you this year.

Lol norton le moors
We live in chell upon the Heath
Or chell Heath as it's locally known
Have a look at pillaton hall farm near penkridge
30 mins away m6 jct 13
Seen a Vermont xlp pitched there and they are
8.1 metres long and nearly 5 metres wide
Your tent isn't overly wide so as you park your car and trailer at the side of your tent don't think you will have any problems with pitch sizes
