      Product Questions

      Do the sides walls open to be able to see out of?
      Question by MJ
      The built in Rain Fly covers the side windows. You can see out the large opening in the front. Be sure to face the tent to your best views!
      Answer by Front Runner
      Are there color options?
      Question by Lynn
      Currently the flip pop tent is only available in one color option.
      Answer by Front Runner
      How long does it take to set the tent up? Is it simple to put back into it's folded state?
      Question by Mark
      Setting it up takes about 5 seconds. Once you have it out of the bag, all you need to do is throw it toward where you want it to go and it will unfold itself in the air and land, opened. Push in a few tent pegs and you're ready to catch some Z's.

      Have a look at this video to see how easily it unfolds:
      https://www.instagram.com/p/9uCZKvOeTl/?taken-by=frontrunneroutfitters

      As for putting it back into it's carry bag, it takes about 10 seconds (after a bit of practice). Luckily, we've also got a helpful guide on how to do this in a few simple movements. Follow the link below to see what the trick to folding it up is:

      please advise if this tent comes with a fly to put over for rain
      Thanks
      Question by Don Corbin
      Our Flip-pop tent has a built-in rain fly.
      Answer by Front Runner
      Will 2 normal foldable foam mattresses fit in this tent?
      Question by Loraine
      If they are the standard single-bed-sized camping units, then they will fit perfectly.
      Answer by Front Runner
      What is the dimensions of the tent when it is folded and in the storage bag?
      Question by Kevin
      The tent is a 32" circle when folded.
      Answer by Front Runner
      Bought this tent at Overland Expo and absolutely love it! Makes camping alone with my child a very easy experience. We go out about 2 or 3 times a year, and store the tent in the bag hanging on the wall in the garage. This trip we found one of the top cross members had snapped. Apparently it didn't handle being in the bag for an extended period (6 months). Is there a replacement part we can get for that cross member? Is there any other way to fix it?
      Question by Bobbi
      Bobbi,

      In many cases you can repair just that section with a simple repair kit.
      Here's an example... https://www.austinkayak.com/products/7503/MSR-Pole-Repair-Kit.html

      Also, you can replace all the poles with a pole replacement kit we have at the warehouse. Feel free to contact me at Bryan@FrontRunnerOutfitters.com to discuss further.

      Answer by Front Runner
      I'm interested in this tent. I was wondering what seasons it's recommended for?
      Question by Daniel
      I wouldn't recommend using it in any heavy snow but the flip pop tent has a built in rain fly and can be used in most seasons.
      Answer by Front Runner
      What size air mattress will fit in this tent?
      Question by Tony Onay
      We fit a QUEEN air mattress in ours. It bulges the sides out a little, but everything zips up just fine. Just remember to put the mattress inside the tent BEFORE you inflate it :-)
      Answer by Front Runner
      What is the best way to store the Flip Top Tent for long periods of time?
      Question by Miguel
      The heavy duty canvas bag is extremely durable, it should last for many years when stored indoors away from heat and sunlight. For extended vehicle trips, we clip it to the underside of our roof rack or sandwich between the roll bar and hard top of our Jeep.
      Answer by Front Runner
      Any change of a lighter weight version for back packers?
      Question by Bob
      No. At the moment this is our only model.
