I set the tent up next to the tear and strap the boot over the top of the tear.
I install the awning sideways so it extends across the top of the tear. This makes it very rain resistant.
On the inside I tuck the window flap of the tent under my mattress.
This helps seal the lower edge from bugs. Here are a few pics.
I even modified my tent so I could install air conditioning! It cools the tent and the tear!

Not Endo but I have the same tent. We used it at the first gathering we went to. We had to set it up for the first time in the dark.
The blue area that connects the tent to the trailer zips on/off. Zip it off and it is a regular tent. The top gray part is an integral awning, it's sewn onto the tent.

Endo wrote:Asianflava your tent must be slightly different. The gray part (rain-fly) on my tent is completely removable. I wonder if they have changed the design since I purchased mine? I install the rain-fly sideways for more protection in the door area of the tear. I guess if the rain-fly is now permanently attached to the tent a small tarp could be used over the door area if needed.
This is the tent I have.
