Canvas Wall Tent Advice

I am looking at buying a Canvas Wall Tent, but I really don't know much about them or what manufactuers are better than others. I was hoping to get some advice from anybody that knows anything about them. Looking at a fairly large one. Looking at getting one for next season. Any help would be great.

Canvas Wall Tent Advice

Panther Primitive puts out some good stuff.
Two things I can sudgest
1- dont skimp on the canvas the thicker the better.
2- dont buy unless the canvas has been coated with a fire retardent
Weight is always going to be an issue with this type of tent. If it is not such a big deal I would recomend also that you buy a "fly" also. Set up in tandom (in front) of your tent it gives a protected outside area to eat, cook etc. Also really helps reduce the amount of mud and dirt that get brought into the tent.

Oh yeah, welcome to the site.

Well, up here you'll see many Fort McPherson tents....Northwest Territories.

Tried and true....but may be long way from where you are....

Agree with ADKBEAR.....ensure you get a fire retardent canvas...

which leads you to your next inquiry....what stove to use?
