A5 double portaledge question
« on: March 05, 2008, 05:19:27 pm »
I'm new to this forum so I hope you all don't mind if I ask a question that may have been asked before. 

I have an A5 Double and I want to buy the new BD Cliff Cabana Deluxe Double FLY.  Does anyone know if this fly will fit the standard A5 Double.

Sorry if this topic has been covered. 

edit - not quite sure of the size difference between the double and the cabana.  This may be a mute point.

CD double cabana is 84"x51".  Old A5 double is 75"x43", so it would be a rather sloppy fit, to say the least.

Thanks man. I had a funny feeling it wouldn't match.

modify with a tent pole sleeve? 

more material = better wrap around?

just thoughts
