Yay!I'll be interested to swap notes with you if you win it - there's a few things I am not sure of from the first time we used ours.

The canopy goes up the same way as the tent, but what I wasn't sure about is when attaching it to the front, what you do with the 2 guys mid way up the steel poles on either side of the door?

I took them out at a more extreme angle so they were still being used, but I have no idea whether that's right or not.

Also, the porch half covers the windows on each side, just so you know.

It also comes with a lovely little tarp for the floor. Use that as a footprint so you know how far back to set the porch entrance.
