Inexpensive Tent, good quality.
« on: January 31, 2016, 08:51:39 am »
I'm re-posting this. I bought two BSA 9 x 7.5 wall tents intending to convert for winter, but have changed plans.  Material is similar to what Cabela's uses on their alaknaks.   These appear to be very well made.  Double doors with netting which can be removed.  I have two of them, selling for $175 each shipped CONUS. 

I also have a box of Easton .750" poles that I bought to frame this, if interested I can summarize what i have (and what I was planning).

TEnt is still available.  CHEAP way to get into a hot tent. Just add a stovejack (and poles).

Snow, which by the way would be more than welcome to many this week, as temps were topping out in the mid-90s and humid around much of the midwest and east coast in the USA.


For what it is worth (since the forum is so inactive right now) this is a really neat tent, with lots of features, decent construction, a very good to great buy for someone not afraid to play around with a frame and sewing in a stove jack.   Also, this can be used, unzipped one side as an impromptu Baker style shelter with a very minimal level of effort. 

I have a couple of pics somewhere that I would be happy to email back to anyone interested in Model97's tent for sale...we backyarded it one weekend for some unruly visiting teens, with two adjustable poles and lots of tie outs.   Fairly simple and painless and it worked as needed.
