from post 21 "The area where the tent sits would be open of course and possibly both side be removable so the tent opens up w/o having to lift tent."

Fitting The Template (with it's half circular cross section) to the tent won't cut it. What you have is a low box on a tiny ground plane. Consider the techniques used on a box van. A quarter-round is sufficient on the front. That break from the horizontal top to the Template line isn't what you want. Consider Mair:

After the straight section, a curve to the 11 angle, then straight. On the sides and top.
Have to study your post. Hasn't sunk in. I appreciate the effort, even though I have no idea what its telling me. LOL (yet)
