Rated 5 out of 5 by FingerLakesNYcamper Vector 6 XL footprint works well
The Vector 6 XL footprint is perfectly sized to the Vector 6 XL tent. The corners have nice, shock-corded webbing with grommets that fit the poles for the main tent. The shock-cords keep the footprint centered underneath the tent where it belongs.
To make it easier for me to put the tent up, I figured out which side went up (the coated side) and which sides are for the the front or back (the long sides) and the sides (the slightly shorter sides) and wrote with permanent marker on the top side of the footprint these notations: "This side up", "Front/Back edge", and "Side".
I used the Vector 6 XL and footprint twice during the 2010 camping season. Though there are no signs of wear after 1 year, to prolong its life I just (July 2011) cleaned the dome tent and sprayed it with 303 High Tech Fabric Guard. Water now runs off of the dome even more readily than it did the first year.
The materials and workmanship in the footprint and Vector 6 XL dome tent I purchased were both outstanding.

The strap was broken while putting first time. Stiching was very bad.
