  1. Great A frame for reenactors since no metal is showing on the outside.
  2. A frame can be used on A frame tents or wall tents.
  3. A Frame can be used in the tent or outside.
  4. A frame is a very good tent frame for use on uneven ground. A frame is made of tubular steel.
  5. Size of pipe varies depending on size of A frame tent. Size of pipe: 12 feet wide and narrower A frames has 1 1/4" and 1" outside diameter tubing/pipe for A frame and ridge line. 14 feet and wider A frames uses 1 7/16 and 1 1/4" outside diameter tubing.
  6. A Center pole is not required for 12' or less, unless you anticipate a heavy snow load.
  7. Center support pole provided for wall tents 13' and longer. Center pole for a 12' and shorter is an additional $25.00.
  8. A frame fits inside the A frame tent and is easy to adjust. Tighten eye bolt on ridge once length has been adjusted to tent length. Frame width is adjusted by spreading A-frame legs and tightening eye bolts.
  9. One person set up - ten to fifteen minutes.
  10. Two pieces of adjustable pipe are welded on each side of ridge pole ends where the A frame poles are inserted on each side of the ridge pole. A frame poles can be adjusted to fit the WIDTH AND LENGTH of the tent, then locked into place with eye bolts that are provided.
  11. Standard size wall tents and A frame tent vary with each tent manufacturer. The internal A frame allows for approximately one foot adjustment in height, width and depth of A frame tent standard dimensions.
  12. 1/2" outside diameter struts hold up the walls. By using struts there is no wall bar along the eave where water, ice, and snow normally build up. The outside struts holds the wall up but lets the water run off the edge.
  13. If camp is left empty for a few days, the walls can be let down while leaving the A frame intact. This way the snow and ice will not accumulate.
  14. Carrying bag included in price.
  15. Specify wall height, if ordering A frame with struts, in the comments section of check out form.
  16. The major drawback to any A frame is no rafters for roof support
  17. Recommendation: If you are looking for an A frame or a pole set, this internal A frame is the easiest to set up and provides the most ridge support because of the center pole.
