Sorry to be really thick but how does a fully tubbed groundsheet work? How far up the sides and so on

 

Thanks

I'm not too sure, but is fully tubbed like a zip in ground sheet? We've just got a wolf lake7, and when we put it up on Saturday, we said that the groundsheet looked like a bath tub design. It zips in all the way around (including all the doors), so you have to step into the tent. Ours comes up the side about 6 inches (or there abouts)

Don't know if that has helped or not? Hope so, if not, i'm sure it won't be long before someones on here telling you different!! What tent are you looking at?

"fully tubbed" is not a usual description of tent groundsheet, where have you seen it?

If the description is supposed to refer to a "bath tub groundsheet" then these usually toggle in about six inches or so up the inside of the tent.

I was looking at sunncamp invader 600.

We have just had a bad experience with a Gelert Lokon Vario6 so we need a replacement.

We Loved the space but the front of the tent just didn't hold up!!

 

Any recommendations

That's quite a lot of tent for the money, it doesn't look bad.

Those flat fronted tunnels will always be susceptible to the fronts being blown in if the wind comes head on, the front guys are pretty key and in high weather I'd be tempted to add some additional storm guys to protect the front.

Nice looking tent though.

This tent is very similar to the one that broke. The big dilemma is do spend more money, be a sheep and buy a montana 6? Everyone seems to have such high regards for these.

I do like the height instead of the angles though. Is buying a tent meant to be this hard?

Just to add the Guy ropes were spot on. it was the tabs that pegged into the floor that failed.
