Wall Tent

Post by M.Bird » Fri Feb 08, 2008 12:37 am

Still looking:
Want (need? kind of) a new canvas wall tent, I looked at the company in Denver, that’s not the company that I dealt with before. Does any one have any recommendations? Based on use and pack ability?

Thanks

We bought the King's Package from Davis Tent and Awning last year and really like it. I'm not sure any wall tent would be described as "packable". :)) Check them out, it's a nice tent. They also have a February Special going on. There's a lot of good general info on tents in the FAQ.

Ours was a bit more than that but we bought a 14 X 16 sunforger/preshrunk/fire retardant canvas with a rain fly, two big heavy duty (and just plain heavy) cots, a nice big stove, a screen window in the back, a 3/4 heavy duty waterproof floor and the internal frame angles, stakes, ropes, etc for around $1800 +/-. We bought galvanized electrical conduit (IMC or EMT, I forget) to make the poles. It's a really nice tent and it's set up to use traditional poles also if you want.
