The speed of a drying cycle depends on the type of tent that is being dried. Tops with the least amount of webbing or straps will dry in 60 to 90 minutes. Tents like pole tents with more webbing and straps can take up to 4 hours to completely dry. To deal with large volumes of tops needing drying in busy times, many companies will only dry the vinyl and not worry about completely drying the webbing or straps. It is usually safe to store tents with damp webbing or straps for 2 to 3 days before being set up to completely dry. Often dry times to dry, the vinyl-only can be 45 to 75 minutes long.
