CUSTOMERS FROM CANADA :
Please visit CANVASTENTSHOP.CA Canada website designed to eliminate your brokerage fees and reduce shipping for US canvas tents and canvas tent stoves to Canada. Canvas tents and tent stoves are in Canada ready for shipment.
The four basic types of tent frames:
I live in canvas tents 6-8 weeks a year. A tent internal frame is the quickest and easiest frame to assemble. Most importantly, internal canvas tent frame provides the most support for your tent roof. Except when snowing heavily or heavy winds, I do not install guy ropes, except to corners, to eaves because the internal wall tent frame provides so much more support. Not installing guy ropes and tensioners will significantly reduces set up time. During high winds you must have all ropes and stakes set up, I tie my ropes to trees, stumps, rocks etc to insure my tent doesn't fly away. Your canvas tent is just like a ship sail during high winds.
Packer frame is usually 2 to 3 weeks behind in shipping aluminum and galvanized steel wall frames tent.
The steel Hunter internal canvas tent frame can be normally shipped within 1 week if required.
Aluminum canvas tent frames are available . Ship time is about 2 weeks after ordering.
RECOMMENDATION: There are lighter tent frames available for canvas tents but I would not recommend them except for a 8 x 10. Lighter frames have very thin walls and cannot withstand much of a snowload.
For individuals purchasing Montana Canvas Blend and Outfitter canvas tents I recommend the Montana Canvas frames listed on my Montana Canvas web pages.
A frame for a new canvasl tent should be reduced 2% to allow for canvas shrinkage.
RECOMMENDATION: After receiving your frame I recommend you wet down canvas tents on the frame. When wetting your tent for shrinkage, and also when it rains/snows, insure that you have guy ropes/side ropes and wall stakes on your new wall tent to insure it only shrinks the normal 1-2% shrinkage and that it shrinks evenly. Otherwise it may shrink more than 3% and unevenly and may not fit your internal frame properly. Allow some looseness in the guy ropes to allow for the roof shrinkage. If you do not allow for guy rope looseness you will weaken the seams. When the tent shrinks against a tight rope, the shrinkage will cause great pressure/strain on the tent roof seams which weaken the seams.

GENERAL FRAME INFORMATION
AWNING , PORCH & COOKSHACK FRAMES: If you are purchasing a awning, porch or cook shack frame I recommend eave openings or eave socks on your tent end abutting the awning, porch or cook shack. By having an eave and ridge opening - you can have a 4 way angle on the end of your tent instead of the normal 3 way angle. The 4 way angle allows you to connect the tent frame directly to the awning, porch or cook shack frame. By connecting to the tent frame you save the cost of 3 angles, 2 legs and 2 rafters and the time to set up these extra frame pieces. If you are buying an attached awning, porch, or cook shack you should automatically order eave socks or eave openings. If you are buying an unattached awning, porch, cook shack the eave openings are optional.
FRAME TOUCHING YOUR WET CANVAS TENT. Sometimes a canvas tent will leak where the canvas touches the frame. If this wicking/leaking occurs the only solution is to purchase a tent fly. The fly prevents prevents any rain or snow from touching the canvas so no wicking/leaking can occur. Other benefits of a fly (1) prevents sparks from the stovepipe burning holes in your canvas roof (2) protects canvas from ultraviolet rays which deteriorates the canvas (3) keeps your tent roof clean from tree pitch.
STORING AND TRANSPORTING YOUR FRAME TENT IS MUCH EASIER when using frame storage bags. A frame consists of many pieces that can normally be put into 2 frame bags for tents 14x16 and smaller. You will need 3 frame bags for tents larger than a 14x16.
REENACTOR FRAMES. Some reenactors do not like the time and effort to set up lodge pole frames for their tents. Some reenactors will use an internal frame or internal A frame that are only visible on the inside of the tent and then use wooden eave poles to give their tent "the reenactor look."
