This method was shown to me by Gary cross at cross camping when we purchased an eternity 600 which is polyester
This method should really work with almost every airbeam tent
I must admit if I had that many tents to take down I'd find the easiest way of doing it

I must say - I'm impressed. Glad to know I'm not the only one, who can be seen on site lying /kneeling on the roll to get it in (I look like a beached Walrus). I like the tip about keeping the roll about 4" shorter than the bag - will try this as we have always aimed for size for size. Never seem to get the roll as neat as yours as we tend to veer off one way or the other.
Now the challenge is out there - will try to emulate.
We are taking our tent back to Attwoolls Wednesday.
Not due to lose threads (done that myself), The rear beam of the tent has knees and no matter how we have tried, we cannot correct.
While playing with the rear beam, noticed that one of the bed pod attaching points was hanging by a thread. Attwoolls have offered to repair themselves and test pitch the tent to see if they can correct / get a replacement beam.
Our next outing is not until the middle / end of July.

Thanks for the great post.
We fold us from the side to side, as opposed to rear to the middle, then front to the middle. We start at the opposite side to the open valves and fold it about 18" at a time. Gets very heavy to fold though.
Fits in the bag fine, but I think it could be smaller doing it your way. Will give it a go next time.

Sorry to bump this thread but a friend at work has just purchased an airbeam tent (can't remember which one) but wanted to see how we fold our Eden
What did attwools say about the knees on your rear beam and would like to see your pics of the side porch please
