User Review: Northwest Territory Olympic Cottage Deluxe Cabin Tent
Long story short, to overcome the water pooling problems with this tent I bought eight 1/2-inch pvc ts and two 10-inch lengths of pvc pipe. I made four more roof supports, two for the front and two for the back spaced evenly between the original roof supports.
I then put dollar store bungee cords from peak to eve on each side of the pvc pipe. Total cost 13 dollars. Now there are supports every 2 feet instead of two 7-foot spaces. Water runs right off.another thing you can do is to buy some extra guyline 5/32 from Lowes, 2.89 for 50 ft. and 4 stakes $1 a piece.
The four grommet holes in the roof that they don't mention anything about are for extra guy lines. Run the line through the grommet from the top down and tie off couple of knots so they don't pull through. Pull slightly tight and stake them down. That should keep your fly nice and tight.
Hope this helps. Stay dry.
