Q: Can one roll up a deflated air mattress in the tent floor pockets and still fit in the tent carrying bag?
A: Yes, the tent is designed to allow one to roll up a deflated air mattress and tent together. The tent carrying bag will hold the tent, a deflated air mattress, the air pump, and the other tent components if rolled up properly.
Q: What purpose do the ties on the floor serve?
A: The ties that are located on the perimeter of the pockets on the floor of the tent are to be used to tighten the slack out of the pockets when the air mattress is not being used. The ties can be tightened to avoid tripping on the pockets and help remove the loose material of the pockets so they are not sliding around on the floor of the tent.
Q: What type of air mattress fits in the tent?
A: The tent can accommodate any single high air mattress - up to a 9” (inch) depth. The tent is designed to hold a single twin air mattress, 2 twins, one queen or one king air mattress.
