Hi,

 

Am just wondering if this fits the Colarado?  All the info I've found says "Suitable for use with Vermonts, Montanas, Indianas, Sun Valleys, along with a host of other tents."  Just wondering why they don't mention Colarado?  Am worried as I've ordered it now!

Don't worry about it .. we use it on a SV8 and a Suncamp Evo.  If it fits a Montana there's no reason whatever it wouldn't fit a Colorado.  ' host of other tents' is probably the key phrase!  The worst that can happen is that you may need to add longer guylines to the end opposite the canopy.

WE have one of these and a Colorado and I have to say that first attempt to "attach" it was not a success - I was not present but son and husband said it was too tall and leaves a very big gap between tent and side canopy (however I think the gap thing is evident in pictures) They also said very difficult to actually get the canopy cover across the top of the tent and attach it.
However it was only one attempt so we will try again - maybe a trick was missed somewhere...

I read somewhere th trick was to attach something a bit heavy but not sharp, to the end of the guylines and throw over the top of the roof of tent

Thats right beefysmum.

Attach a small cuddly toy or something and throw it over the top.

How about a small child. ;)

I'm going away this weekend without DH, am probably going to look very daft trying to do it with no adult help.  It should be here tomorrow, but no chance for a trial run before going.

Yes we tie something heavy ( like a roll of bin bags) to the guys and just chuck em over .. just make sure no small people are on the other side!
