Tent is from early 2000s

Hi All - I am hoping you can help with this and apologies for my description of the problem, I am not sure of the technical term for section of tent I am trying to describe.

Despite what I try, I cannot get the correct tension in the canvas at the rear corners of the tent ie the vertical section which meets the ground sheet and forms the bath tub

The main problem with this is that the bath tub effect of the ground sheet is not achieved because the vertical section of bisonyl lies flat. This problem is only on the two rear corners - it is fine in the middle and down the sides.

I have tried adjusting the tension of the guys on the varioluifel and the guys at the rear, but I still have this sag.

I follow the pegging instructions instructions in the PDF guide

Thanks in advance!

I think I do understand 8)
The problem is solved by: setting up the tent leaning a little forward (as in the instruction) an then "pull it back" a little with the guys at the rear. Perhaps this was corrct, because only the back-corners have the problem. Now you need to make het guylines in the back (including the corners an the last ones at the backside) "as long as possible"
This must solve the problem :D

if not than I did not understand you correct :oops:
then the next step is making a picture of the problem :respect:

OK, thanks for explaining - I did have the poles tilting forward slightly, but the rear guys were not extended out.

I'll try tilting the tent a little more and fully extending the guys - hopefully the weather will be fine and I won't need the bath tub to keep the water out!

"but the rear guys were not extended out."

There you have it. Also check this, not a Zilvermeeuw, but a Stormvogel. Check minute 2:35 in this video....

Sometimes also, as people are afraid, guy ropes are not pulled back enough when setting the pegs. When the pegs end up too close to the tent you get steep guy rope angles in relation to the back wall, almost like too short guy ropes.

So as advised by Etienne maximum length and pull back with some tension to lift the back when setting the pegs, also on side-rear pegs. Sharpening comes last.

"hopefully the weather will be fine and I won't need the bath tub to keep the water out!"

A dry tent is always nice, but a nice looking one even more :)
