Survived the first storm
I received my 500 Ultimate Pro a little over a week after I ordered it. I was excited to get it set up and check it out before our Fall camping trip. Our plan was to get the tent, set it up, camp in it in our back yard by our pond and get a feel for camping again and what we might need. (It's been a few years) My daughters and I set it up and we followed the instructions as directed. It took us a little longer than 10min to get it up but it was still very easy. The next day I got home and put a hose to it, and then again the day after as directed in the instructions on the website. It was up for a few days when we had an early morning storm come through and as I laid in bed thinking about the tent and how it was getting it's first test I realized that I had left the windows unzipped. Not much of a concern because it seemed like just a steady downpour. Little did I know as I was driving to work I saw tree branches strewn across many roads and it occurred to me that we also had high winds. My boss also told me he was up early at 5am< and witnessed the high winds and torrential downpours, he lives just a few miles from me. I called the wife and asked her to go out and check on it. She reported that it was dry as a bone inside even with the windows unzipped. She was very impressed!! But that's not all, we had storms off and on all day and when I got home we had more heavy rains with hail and high winds once again. It had nothing on this tent! I as well as my entire family are extremely impressed with this tent and we have not slept one night in it yet! Wow, Canvas Camp you guys make a seriously high quality tent. We are even more excited to get to camping in the Fall with our new second home.
Thank you guys!
