Just picked up a used 2man tent similar to this one. It's in good condition but quite dirty. Are these things machine washable? If not the tent, what about the rain fly?

Hey Tim,

The shell can be washed in a front-loader, then preferably air dried. You can also wash the fly in the same way, but even though a one time (occasional at most) washing won't usually hurt it, it's generally better to wash it by hand in order to keep the waterproofing doing its job.
