Product Questions

Is the bug mesh diameter small enough to protect against no-see-ums?
Question by Hamilton
Yes! The mesh for the Flip Top Tent is tight enough to stop no-see-ums. If you do see-um just make sure you're all zipped up!
Answer by Front Runner
Will you have a 3man unit available some time?
Question by Marius
We currently only offer a two man, or man woman, woman woman, 3 child and dog, etc. solution. Our RTT are longer than most, and we have seen children or dogs use this tent at the "feet" of the two people. Hope this helps!
Answer by Front Runner
Can a cot fit in this tent?
My cot is 78 inches long, 36 inches wide and 36 inches tall
Question by Gary
Looks like your cot is too tall and long and will not fit inside the Flip Pop Tent (TENT045) - at least if you want to keep the door closed!
Answer by Front Runner
Would this tent fit on the floor of a 5' x 8' utility trailer? There are metal sides and the floor area is exactly 60" wide x 96" long.
Question by KK
The Flip Pop Tent (TENT045) dimensions are 102.4" L x 63" W x 40.2" H and just a little to big for your trailer.
Answer by Front Runner
Is this tent self-standing? I.e., will it stand up on its own in an indoors playroom? I was thinking of getting this for the kids to
'camp in' indoors and then also be able to use on real camping outings.
Question by Sean
Yes. The Flip Pop Tent is free standing. When used outdoors in a windy setting, you can use the tent stakes. but they are not necessary!
Answer by Front Runner
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:

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:

Answer by Front Runner
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.

Customer Reviews

PERFECT! Review by casey
i love everything about this tent.. it is perfect for two people! I'm 6'2 and fit in this thing with my fiance will plenty of room to spare. We took it on a trip to anza borrego and it held up to wind pretty well with the stakes in the ground. It also rained on us pretty heavy and not a drop was inside. The tent easily wicked water off once we shook it to put away. The canvas bag was heavy duty. We strapped it directly to my roof rack using the clips provided and it stayed on top while i was driving 80mph on the freeway no problem. Dust/rain all on it through the weekend and it was great. you literally pull it out the canvas and it will pop itself up. You dont need to do anything except put the stakes in the ground.
