Price Reduced-- 4.5 Oz. Sail Cloth Tent For Sale--$850
« on: May 06, 2017, 12:37:49 PM »
Lightly used tent is 8'x9.5', just over 6' tall. External frame wedge tent with a 3" stove jack. Fabric is 4.5 oz. cotton sail cloth, with cotton sod cloth all around the bottom. The weave is so tight it looks and feels like Ventile. Craftsmanship on the tent is excellent, and the overall condition of the tent is excellent, with the exception of a rip in one corner at the very bottom edge(see photos of repair), that has been professionally repaired. It has a 5 pole frame (center pole and 2 side poles on each end) made from Easton aluminum poles, easily converted to internal frame with a little trimming of ridge pole . Packed tent, with poles, weighs about 16 lb. Tent alone is about 11 lbs, poles 5 lbs. Packed size with everything in one bag is about 27" long and 11" diameter. No holes, rot, or mildew. Price is $850 US, and includes shipping CONUS.

Has the tent material been treated? Who makes this tent? Thanks!

Simplicity in all things is the secret of the wilderness and one of its most valuable lessons. It is what we leave behind that is important. I think the matter of simplicity goes further than just food, equipment, and unnecessary gadgets; it goes into the matter of thoughts and objectives as well. When in the wilds, we must not carry our problems with us or the joy is lost.

It was made by Tent Smiths. According to their website it is treated to be water and flame resistant. I'm the second owner and I bought this tent and never used it because I acquired a bigger tent made from the same material that was better suited to my purposes.

Bump--Now with price reduced to $850.00.

I have several tents, including Snowtrekkers. When one considers the quality of this tent, the extremely lightweight cotton canvas, the fact this tent is no longer being made because the fabric is so hard to get, and the aluminum frame, it is a steal at the price I am offering it for.
