nylon vs brass standoffs for wearable project in playa conditions

Re: Is a cheap tent ok when under a monkey hut?

Bring something to clip tightly over the top, under the rainfly, or you will have a tent full of dust. Also, bring a sheet to place over your bedding when you are not in it. Thanks for the advice.

Thanks guys - cannot believe I didn't think of getting a minivan. They're pretty affordable to rent and now I can ride in style and not get pulled over!

Is a cheap tent ok when under a monkey hut?

Will be attending my first burn, and plan on building a monkey hut. Will I be ok with a cheap tent like the one below, as long as it's sitting under the monkey hut? http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Sundome-4-Person-Tent-Green/dp/B004J2GUOU/ref=sr_1_5?s=outdoor-recreation&ie=UTF8&qid=1407973812&sr=1-5&k...
