Exp Lodge- First Use
« on: November 10, 2014, 09:18:19 pm »
First use of the new Snowtrekker Exp Lodge. 3 cots plus a full Cabelas Camp Kitchen and room to spare. Heated with a 4 dog steel stove and we were toasty warm. Weekend hunting trip.

looks great.  Does that wall tent style use the same frame set up as the other tents in Duane's line?   Just wondering if the size of the connectors or poles goes up from the smaller sizes.

Floor size is 12 x 13.

Poles on the A-frame are larger diameter on the uprights. Ridge pole is the same size. Poles holding the outer walls up are also larger than they were on my EXP Shortwall. Connectors are different from my last tent. Instead of being hollow, welded tubes, they are solid aluminum that is about 1/2" diameter. It gives more flexibility at the pole/connector junctions.

Thanks for connecting the photos. Someday I'll get the hang of it.

If you get the chance (at some point when its convenient) could you take a couple of pics of the various connectors for me (and PM if thats quicker) ... it would be very helpful to me.
