Considering the price of Happifeet, I would like to think that I was safe in assuming that the standard 32 lb weights were sufficient protection.... However, the fact that they offer 16 lb add on weights makes me question....
Does anyone have any experience of using Standard Happifeet Weights without the optional add on weights? Is this enough weight to keep a Trimline tent on the ground in high winds?
That is helpful, thanks! We are trying to figure out what weight system we need right now.
I have found that adding some rubber pads to the bottom of my tent legs adds a little extra resistance to leg movement on hard surfaces. I cut up a thick rubber floormat for this purpose and it is well worth it...Every step adds up to secure my tent.
Oh absolutely. I think 45 per leg is the bare minimum. It will keep you grounded up to a 30mph gust. Any more then that, you need some extra weight.
And i agree that some shows need a lot of weight! Unfortunately, most people dont know that until they get there. If youre lucky you had a friend or acquaintance who gives you a heads up.
Recently i went to a show with a little under 400 pounds of weight. (And that's not including me holding onto a leg...)
