I was playing around with developing a vac-forming machine a while back.  This was going to be one of my first projects.

I never stumbled across any drawings but a tent manufacturer said this is a "pavilion" style tent if that is any help.

I guessed that the opening or distance between the two main poles was 15 meters.  My guess was to have 50 feet to clear any two seater's wingspans.
