I am looking for a medium size tent (8x8 or 10x10) that is of good quality but not too expensive. I like the idea of the hatch tent but don't want to go to that much trouble to set it up and it's a little too expensive for how often I go camping. It's just me and my dog (100 lb. Rottie) so we sleep in the X. Any advice on an easy to setup tent to store gear in? It won't be for sleeping, just for stowing gear.

That would be great, but I don't think those come in 10x10?

:clown: Ya know phucky, I didn't mention, "Harbor Freight", they have a lot of commercial tarps/nets/cases/ and Nylon bags--

--I have one I use ,to hold my Hatch tent/accessories/chain saw and it'l hold some firewood to--

--It comes with built-in nylon straps and bungie cords, I put it on top of my trailer, you could put your "equipment", in one and secure it on top the X--

--They're about $30.00 bucks and are 5' wide/2' deep and 2' tall--heavy nylon with rain cuffs-checkitout--

Jimbo,

No, I don't have flat fold front seats and that really wouldn't help for my dog. I need a fairly large and semi flat place for her 6'x8' bed. I figured if I pulled the passenger seat out that would be the perfect spot. Especially with the back seat bottoms out. Should be plenty of room for me and my dog to sleep.

I am also looking for a couple of those magnetic window vents that go over the entire back windows on the outside so that you can roll the windows down for cross ventilation without worrying about bugs. I know I could make my own but someone makes these external ones that allow you to roll the windows up and down. I just can't find the website that sells them. Anyone know about these? Please send me the link if you do.
