I've bought a Machine Mart garage tent to keep two of our Dolomites in. It is on gravel with weed stop under, drainage should be good and there is a handsome (6") ventilation gap under the front & rear. Should I worry about rising condensation, should I add a tarp floor? If it was just cost of the tarp I'd do it anyway but by the time I've protected the tarp probably with a layer of interlocking foam tiles above and below it gets quite uncheap.

NO, DONT USE A TARP FLOOR YOU WILL HAVE MASSIVE CONDENSATION PROBLEMS :wary:
CARDBOARD IS A GOOD IDEA AS IT WILL SOAK UP ANY DRIPS.
IF YOU CAN PUT SMALL VENTS IN ROOF EVEN BETTER :)
CHEERS, TONY.
