Many Megahorn II and Megahorn III customers have been asking for a bathtub floor to use inside the shelter for when bugs are not an issue.

Luxe have now released such and item with a pie slice taken out of it, so you can rotate it either to prevent the mud entering the shelter or to use in conjunction with a stove, so that the stove feet are directly on the ground.

Please note: Designed to suit the Megahorn II and III. If used within Megahorn XL, there will be a 30-50cm gap around perimeter.

Specifications

  • Material: 75D/210T Polyester with 4000mm HH
  • Dimensions: Each edge face is 170cms
  • Weight: 670gms
  • Top tips for a stable shelter in all weathers

    If the supporting pole sinks at any stage the material will lose all the tension and the tent can become unstable in high winds, with the possibility of the pole moving. The common tip here is to cut a tennis ball in half and use each half at either end of the pole. It prevents the pole from sinking and also reduces the pressure on the peak. Once this is in place, applying tension on all the surrounding guys will maintain tension throughout the night. Some use Marmite caps or Rebar Mushrooms.

    In excessive wet weather we have had occasional reports of the supplied guys slipping in the cleats. A simple overhand knot will stop this.

  • Seam sealing the tent

    As the silicone tents are designed without seam taping, we recommend user to apply seam sealing on the outside seam of flysheet where necessary (Mainly around the crown area). Along the horizontal stitching around the vent. Down the zip and 'inside' the guy loops and top loop. (Pull apart with your fingers) Anywhere water can gather is a potential point of issue if the tent will be subjected to prolonged rainfall or a persistently wet environment.
