They are worth it.

Its makes a big difference on the temperature inside the tent ends when you are in the sun and also keeps the ends dark in the morning when the sun comes up. They are a little pricey but on the first hot summer day without shade and you will be glad you bought them.

You're right!! The reflective Mylar surface prevents the aliens from reading my mind while I'm asleep. During waking hours we all wear aluminum foil hats that look like giant Hershey Kisses.

Don't wory too much.

Our first popup, we used for over 8 years.
Never closed wet, unless absolutely had too, and if we did opened as soon as we got home, if was clear, dried and let the sun dry. Tents never moulded, mildewed, At all. Only washed the tents a couple of times in 8 years, and looked at felt like new when we traded in on our Hybrid. The dealer said the second family that looked at it bought it, said looked like new, which it did. But I am thinking about the gizmos for my new hybrid 17Z, just do not want to tank a chance on punctures, etc, keeping me from camping. I have already missed the last 2 years due to car wrecks, and recovery times.

We used to have a 26BH but it became a pain in the butt parking and finding good spots in state parks due to the size of it. We now have an X18D and are going for our first trip on thursday. We are really excited and any tips on how to keep a fold out from falling apart would be great. Thanks
