    Default Conqueror Comfort - Questions

    I traded my Commander for a Comfort and I need a bit of advice from long time owners:


    1. What do you do with the tent cover bag, after opening the tent so that it does not interfere with the awning or blow around and girts girts on the tent?
    2. What do you do with the loose cover straps so that they are not in your way while you camp?
    3. What do you do to make the fold away process of the tent into the tent cover a bit easier?


    The trailer and tent set up easy, and even the the fold up is not that bad, but, I set up and break camp on my own, and would appreciate some help to make things a little easier.

    Probably should have included a Trumpism in the heading..

    Nobody can believe that you traded your Commander for a comfort?!?

    My Comfort, sets up faster has a bar, and has more usable space , it also has a bigger kitchen, more packing space, a bar, tows better, and has a bar.. Oh and it tows better. It can also take a bigger fridge..

    Wait, did I mention the bar?

    But most importantly it is water tight.
    My Commander was old, did lots of dirt and off - road work and was a bit leaky.

    Ok, not a bit...

    1. Fold it in a V, roll it up and place it in the space provided above the bar... length of the trailer. Except if you have a comfort with the awning that lifts out from that space...

    2. I place the straps in that same area as the tent cover. Straps from front I place underneath the tent, where the table goes.

    3. The tent alone does fold away easily. I also fold my L-shape awning with it (keep attached), then pack 3 groundsheets, the add-a-room, a small table and a mattress for one stretcher under the cover also. Made the cover 70mm taller to fit it all though. Before I made the cover bigger, the groundsheets and the awning also fitted below.

    Enjoy the trailer. We enjoy ours.

    Thanks Bassfisher. Some good advice about the v-shape rolling up of the cover. I will try it, I do have the quick awning that folds out and lifts up though.

    I think my bag (tent cover bag) might be the problem. I think it is too small. It is a mission to get closed, even just with the tent.

    Yes, I use the same approach as Bassfisher on the cover and straps. Also had my cover extended with 50/70mm to allow more packing space.

    Another tip:
    When we are staying longer than 3 nights we like to use the 7x7 sheet. To speed up the setup we've halved the number of poles required by installing an extendable pole in the middle section. Therefor only 8 poles required VS 16. It work perfect and there is more space. See pictures. Click image for larger version.
