    Default Echo Tent Question

    Does the main window in the Echo tent zip completely open. What I mean is does the insect screen also zip.open. The window I refer to is the one facing the kicthen side. Just wondering if they open completely like the Conquerer Tent?

    Mine doesn't. I have the Mk 1 tent, but this may have changed in their later "models". Only the ripstop window zips open, but the gauze screen is fixed.

    I have the MK1, the insect screen does not have a zip. But my question is why would one want to open that anyway ?
    Donít blame yourself over past mistakes. Itís like driving down the N1 while looking in the rear view mirror only.

    To pass coffee up to the missus in bed

    When done with coffee in bed simply lean out the bed and put the coffee cups on top of the fridge

    Exactly.
    Or to get a nice breeze over you while you take a middag slapie. Also good for a view of the area while lying in bed...

    I have made so many changes without taking pics. Really love it. Small, light and easy to set up was the goal.

    Roof top tent with 270 degree awning. Had side panels made to fit as well. ten minutes from stop to beer in hand.
    Back is kitted with place for stretchers, ammo boxes and solar panels. Fitted a 3 tier drawer on the side for clothes as well. Awning poles just needed for windy conditions.

    Will take some pics next weekend at Klein Tafelberg. Think I did a decent job on this one
