Wall Tent

I am looking to come back out to Colorado and elk hunt but instead of bringing my camper I am wanting to rent or buy a 10x10 or 10x12 wall tent with a stove. I checked into some rental rates and for what they want I could buy one for. I am looking for anyone who might have one for sale by owner who would be willing to ship to MO?

eBay

Check eBay they have new and used wall tents sometimes.

I use a Reliable brand Wall Tent and love it.

one thing I will tell you for sure, what ever size you think you want, buy 1 size bigger.

I agree!

I agree!

Go at least one size bigger than you think you need as those "large" wall tents have a way of getting really small when you have inclement weather.

DITTO!

AGREED! Go bigger!...as well, that darn stove always takes up more room than you think! I got a fantastic deal on my tent on Craigslist! I bought a 17' Army GP Small with arctic liner, stove, all poles and stakes for $350 and it is like brand new! Had one small tear on the bottom flap and pristine condition everywhere else! All in original crates! Saw a seriously worn out one at a surplus for $1300 and another in pretty poor condition at another surplus for $1100...and neither had the stove!

us too...

My partner got a very similar deal and this is the set up we use as well.  I will say that the wall tents are a bit easier to assemble but this certainly does the trick.  Also, I prefer the GI pot belly stoves (that can be had easily for about $50) to the barrell stoves.  We get to camp 2 days early to set up, cut firewood and then have time to let things quiet down for a day.  We also brings some lump coal to put in for the over night periods.  We hunt at +-9,200 ft and even at zero we are very comfy.  Oh yeah, we sleep three in overside cots, all our stuff and tons of room left over in that tent.  This is the budget option......If I had $10-1200 I would get a surplus frame tent ... http://www.armytents.com/tents/tent-frm.html.....I have slept a bunch in these and they are my choice.

Rental of Tents

I sent you a PM but I will post a little here as well. Last season I rented both of my Davis Wall tents out for the various seasons without a single issue. I take a deposit and when you return my gear I give you the deposit back. I have two tents 14x16 and 16x20 I have wood burning stoves but I always suggest going with propane heat as it beats stocking a fire at 2:30am. Let me know if I can help you out. Thanks James PS. I am not a guide or outfitter just someone who likes helping others out.
