GT HOME VAN | GT HOME 310 | GT HOME 410
Close all zippers at the front of the
tent except for the ones on the left and
Open the zipper of the car-con-
nection that attach the awning to the
Release the cross strut on the interior. Open the valves and squeeze air out of the
tubes, starting at the top and working towards the valves, 1-2x until all air has escaped.
When the tubes are empty, close the valves again.
The same applies for the additional air tube in the front of the GT Home 410.
Close rolled up curtains at the win-
dows and ventilation openings on the
in- and outside.
Finally, open both valves of the awning’s
main tubes (at one broadside on the in- &
outside) and let the tent collapse.
If you have the time, leave the awning
for 15 minutes, so some air is squeezed out
by the tent’s own weight.

Thank you for choosing one of our GentleTent awnings! It takes a bit of practice and a
suitable guide to fold it up to its initial packing size. Follow the following guide step by step!
We hope you have a good “Coming Home” with your GentleTent awning.
Release the guy lines you used to fix
the tent to the ground and, depending
on wind conditions, pull out the ground
During stronger winds leave the
4-6 ground pegs that hold down the
tent for the time being.
After you’ve emptied the main tube,
adjust the awning carefully.
Now fold up the side part with the valves in the middle again, so the valves rest on
the outer edge. This way, any remaining air can still the escape the air tubes while you
continue to fold up the tent.
Now fold in the left and the right side part. Fold along the seam.
Only the side parts are folded in. Depending on the tent, they might not meet in the middle or have the same length!
1. Flip the entire awning and put it on the roof.
2. Be mindful that the ground straps lie on top.
3. Make sure that the awning’s front is placed securely under the ground straps.
Squeeze out air starting on the oppo-
site side of the valves and going towards
the same. If you’re on your own, squeeze
out the air on one side first and then on
the other side of the air tube. Repeat the
at least 2x!

Inflating works best when working
in twos! Start together at the opposite
side of valves – each person following
one side – and work towards the val-
ves squeezing out air as you go.
Using your body weight squeeze out
remaining air again.

Now roll or fold up the awning lengthways.
The valves should now be in the last fold on the bottom.
Now unfurl the packsack on
the ground, tuck in the awning
and close the Velcro fasteners.
Fold up the awning further, starting from the side without valves, until it becomes one long strip. Applying pressure to the tent with
your body weight, any remaining air will be squeezed out.
The folded-in sections should have (exactly!) the size of the packsack!
