Hi can anyone help. I bought a Lichfield madrid 6 but no pitching instructions. I have put it up twice but feel its not right. I have a big gap at the front door from the grass up and not sure how to fix this. Do you put the groundsheet down first and then put the tent on top or the other way about, I know this probably sounds stupid but I am a newbie at this camping lark and want to get it right. On the bright side, I just love camping now and cant wait to go again. Thanks in advance for any help.

Cant help with the gap under the front door but as the groundsheet I believe covers the whole of the tent I would put it down first and use it as a guide to pitching the tent. Have you had a look in the tent beg as often instructions are sewn into the inside

Hope this helps a bit

Experience enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
Everything has been said before, but since nobody ever listens we have to keep going back and saying it all over again and again and again
