Snowtrekker Tents / Re: what size stove
« on: July 27, 2018, 10:37:49 am »
Sorry for such a very long delay- wow.  We rely on email and realize we need to log on here more often.  We recommend the large stove for a 10x13 tent
Again, sorry for a delay

At this time of year we don't take on projects like that because we are so busy with our tents.  You can get a hold us us in the spring and talk more about what you want done.  Email us at [email protected]
Thanks- Duane

Here's the link if maybe you are interested in picking up a Snowtrekker for a good buy and a good cause.

Tents and Shelters / Snowtrekker Tent Fabric
« on: October 18, 2012, 10:00:08 pm »
Just a note for any who have been wondering- our new 7 oz. fabric has arrived!!
It is a little bit lighter than our last fabric and a tighter weave.  It will cut a little weight and cut a little more wind.
We knew there was a bit of a discussion about us getting a new fabric and we wanted to let people know we'll be starting to cut tents out of it next week.

An 8' wide tent is a little narrow for back wall stove placement.  However, with the 10' length, if you push the sleeping area all the way to the front to the wall with the door in it, you will actually be sleeping forward of the stove not along side of it.  That would leave area on both sides of the stove for gear, etc.  I have not tried this size of a tent myself with this set up, but am playing with a prototype 9x9' EXP Crew set up this way.  It seems to work very well. 
I would agree that this set up gets to be a little more work and problematic on a deep snow pack.  Not that it can't be worked with. The main advantage of this placement is convenience for 2 people not having to crawl over each in the sleeping area of the tent.  For camp efficiency I still think front stove placement is perhaps the best.
There is definitely winter campers who prefer the rear wall placement and there is nothing wrong with it.  A person just has to decide what system will work best for their needs. 
If you do make a decision and don't like it the worst that it could be for you is the cost of moving the stove jack to a different location and looking at a patch where the old one used to be.

My rule of thumb is 18" minimum, 20" is better.
