Hybrid specific mod
The problem: To set the tent ends up after tipping out the beds you first have to lift up the end hoop and install the ridge pole. This is difficult because the mattress is folded up in front of the hoop (can't pull the mattress out of the way, it's behind the rear wall), my wife can't reach over the mattress and reach the hoop, sticking her hand under the mattress allows her to move the hoop up a little, but still difficult to grab.
I found a 6' peice of nylon strap, installed a snap in the end so I could loop it over the metal hoop and snap it together. When the bed is folded up and the hoop is lying on the bunk bottom, she can now just pull on the strap, raise up the hoop, install the ridge pole and push out the tent. The strap can then be unsnapped and stored away until you are ready to close up the beds. The strap can then be installed and the end left hanging over the bed for next time. Took me about 20 min. to make, made one for each bunk end.
