drying a large canvas tent - say the size of a 5m bell tent - atall possible in a small terraced house with no garden of which to speak, or an utterly foolhardy endeavor?
we have a (small) spare room which is largely empty and one of those heated airer things. alternatively we could take it down the park if the weather was good, but this thing will be heavy, with a SIG too.
yup, get the non SIG version or does it come in a ZIG? You can dry it out draped over stuff as Mrs B and Riven have said, but you have to be really meticulous with getting it dry, turning and airing it. If it goes back into the bag even slightly damp it'll go mouldy
It will still shrink a bit (if you dry it non-pitched) but you'll still be able to get the pole up inside, then stretch it out slowly by re-pegging the guys.
it's not a new tent (so no option of choosing without SIG) i'll ask the current owner whether they re-pitch to dry it (presumably if they haven't done this in the past and can still erect it okay thenwe should be fine, yes?)
realistically the park isn't an option since we cant just leave it there until it's dry if it might rain for several days (weeks) in a row. no-one round here's got a garden big enough to pitch it in.
well, better find these things out before parting with any hard earned cash, right (leaving aside that i had rather got my hopes up ).
You know they say that it's no use throwing money at a problem? Well, it's not true. We threw money at the tent problem and bought one of these We have never regretted it for a moment. It's light, easy to put up, absolutely water tight, windproof, huge inside, comfortable and beautiful. We love it! The only downside it the price - we were quite rich when we bought it, and we guard it with our lives!
