First adventures: Our advice

What should I check before leaving?

To avoid any unpleasant surprises when you get to pitch your tent, it's a good idea to carry out a few checks so you can set off with peace of mind.

- Take your tent out of its bag to air it and reduce any bad odours, and clean it if necessary (see our maintenance advice below).
- Check the condition of your equipment: make sure that none of the tent poles are broken, that the guy ropes are not faulty, that you are not missing any tent pegs, etc.
- Examine the fabric and the groundsheet to check that there are no holes
- Check the condition of the zips to see if they are working properly

Where to pitch my tent?

Before pitching your tent, it is essential to choose an appropriate spot. So, we have listed some tips to help you find the perfect spot :

- Look for a flat and relatively clear ground (no stones, branches ...) to sleep well and not damage your tent
- Avoid pitching too close to a water point for many reasons: moisture, insects, potential rising water levels...

How to properly pitch my tent?

To make it easier to pitch your tent, it is important to prepare the base well. Stretch the tent out on the ground by its bottom hooks to create a smooth surface, so that it can take shape correctly. What's more, fully assemble the tent poles before sliding them into the sleeves so that the pitching process is faster and more efficient.

Do not stretch the guy lines too much and leave them relatively loose so that the tent can withstand gusts of wind more effectively.

The pegs must be planted at 45° in the opposite direction of the tent to anchor to the ground better.

Maintaining a Tropic 900 tent

using it correctly

Before pitching your tent, leave the front door closed to avoid stretching the canvas too much when you pitch the poles. Do not tighten the guy ropes too much because too much tension on the canvas could damage it. Finally, do not leave the tent too exposed to the sun because UV light causes premature wear.


It is important to dry your tent well after cleaning it to avoid traces of mildew. If you have room at home, assemble it completely, open all the doors so that it dries quicker. If, on the contrary, you run out of space, detach the pieces one by one and extend them.
Finally, remember to dry the cover as well.


Store your tent in a dry place at room temperature. Remember to close the front door to prevent your tent from being too tight when you put it up again.
