If you don't find one then you could buy a cheap builders tarp and make one
just remember to cut it about 25 mm smaller than the actual tent dimensions

Got our Eden pitched last night in the grower. Trouble is its blowing a gale against the bedroom beam and causing it to collapse in the middle of the beam. Has anyone else had this happen? Cheers.

We were told to put a bit of extra air in the bedroom beam as the weight of the bedrooms and what's inside them do pull it down a little. Try 1psi extra and see.

That's amazingly neat. Mine always starts off straight, and then goes a funny shape as we carry on. I'm thinking of just making a truly ginormous bag for it. If for no other reason because that will be cheaper than a divorce lawyer!

Nick,
     we too have the Eden (with side awning which also drags on the back beam).
Yes we have had the back beam collapse (combination of Heavy rain and wind).
What have I learnt in my year with the Eden:-
Do not peg out tent and guy ropes drum tight.
The beams loose 1-1.5psi overnight (first night only) then they stabilise.
The beams are tested to 15psi - I always inflate now to 8psi (still in the green portion of the pump.)
The back beam is flatter than the rest - but it no longer sinks.

Hello there
Glad it went well
Nick
We had the back beam collapse once but as oldwolf and sarahir
have said don't over tighten the guys and I always inflated to 8psi
Also don't rely on the gauge on the hand pump I found this to be at least 10-15% out reading say 8psi when actually there was 6.5 psi
Also like oldwolf inflate all the beams then the following morning just nip around the beams and reinflate if needed we needed to do this twice in a fortnight due to the weather getting hot in the day and cold at night
Fantastic tent though

Thanks guys, I'll pitch the tent again soon and see if I can do it a bit better. Just out of interest does the bedroom beam not have as much of an arch as the other beams on yours and does the top part of the beam look as if it bends in towards the middle of the tent if you look at it from either side. Hope this makes sense! I would put a photo on but not sure how you do it.

All beams should look the same as the beams are all made identical to each other
At first it did sag a little due to the bed pods but a bit extra pressure sorted that out
When I sat and thought about the air pressure in our airbeams we've had 3 vangos
2 polyester ones which were a flux 500 and an eternity 600
And of course the Eden
Now as we are all aware the Eden and the euphoria are very heavy both around 70kg
The flux was around 20kg
The eternity around 30kg
But what got me thinking was all three needed 7-8psi in the airbeams
So are we over inflating the lighter polyester airbeams or under inflating the polycotton airbeams which are double in weight
I've asked a couple of retailers this question and no one can give me a definitive answer
What are your views on this ?????

Nick,
    our back beam is always a little flatter than the rest, but remember that 90% of the time I have the extension attached and that flap goes over the top of the tent.
If we are not using the side extension then we gain about 1-2" in height.
We do not have distortion in the beam as you state (we have had) our root cause was:- The tube was kinked inside the outer sleeve - leading to distorted beams / knees in the beams - all have been sorted, just need time to deflate most of the air out of the beam and adjust the beam.
Also remember to throw away the regulator if using on the pump.
We now use the electric Bravo pump for the put up (set to 8 psi) the manual pump for top ups / backup.

Sorry, you can NOT post a reply.
