An internal frame is strong and can withstand high winds and snowstorms. A frames for packing in are available also.
Our most popular frame is the Wilderness steel conduit frame, 1 1/8" outside diameter that can ship in 2-3 days. View conduit frames for more info.
The frame is designed to not fit tight on the frame. If you want your tent to have a tighter tent on the frame, set your tent up and spray it down with water inside and out, especially on the seams. All tent canvas will shrink 1-3 % after it becomes wet. The seams have small needle holes which will close when sprayed with water.
If you are not concerned about a slightly lose tent, the tent will naturally shrink overtime as a result of to dew and condensation.
Never have a skin tight tent on a frame. When a tent is skin tight on a frame there is tremendous pressure on the seams. Eventually the seams will loosen or tear. Same process as when a person wears skin tight jeans.
Frames cannot be returned or refunded as each frame is made for a specific tent.
I strongly encourage you to look at my tent frame angle kit if you are on a limited budget. Purchasing angle kits and then purchasing 1” inside diameter, thin walled, electrical conduit at a local hardware store is the most economical approach to purchasing an internal frame. Internal frame shipping charges are very high due to the weight and length of an internal frame.
If you purchase an angle kit I will provide pole cut list to cut your frame poles after you measure your tent. Typical frame savings using an angle kit on a 12x14 internal frame is $250 including shipping. Normally, it takes about an hour to make a frame. Only tool required is a hack saw or pipe cutter or sawzall or any other tool you have that cuts metal pipe.
If you order a wilderness tent and frame we will measure the tent for the frame.
If you have a tent made from another company, you must provide the following measurements of your tent for us to make a custom frame:
wall height (A),
rafter/slope length (B),
width ( C ),
ridge length ( D ).
See diagram below for specific measuring instructions. Double check your measurements when measuring all canvas tents.
Add A, B, C, D Measuring diagram from our How to Measure a Tent.
The four basic types of tent frames:
1. Internal Frame. Aluminum canvas tent frames or galvanized steel canvas tent frames are normally used by individuals tent camping near a road. However, lightweight aluminum tent frames can be easily packed in on horses. Aluminum tent poles should be tied tightly together to reduce rattling that might spook your horse.
2. Angle Kits. You can easily make your own canvas tent frame by purchasing 1" electrical conduit from local hardware stores. Purchasing an angle kit and 1" steel conduit is much cheaper than purchasing and shipping a complete tent frame. Steel tent poles are very heavy and shipping is expensive. We have both fixed and adjustable angle kits for canvas tents available.
3. A Frame. Galvanized steel, two models, internal or external. Can be used near a road or packing in on horses.
Internal OR External A Frame, prices and information - recommended.
4. Lodge Pole Frame. Normally used by reenactorsl or individuals who pack in on horses and make their own tent poles using lodge poles. Click Lodge pole frame to view picture.
