 The best wall tents with stove are a necessity during camping trips and especially in the back country.

WALL TENT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT SIZE OF CANVAS WALL TENT DO I NEED?

 Sleeping capacity vs tent size info guide provides diagrams with bed, stove and table. The different tent sizes shown will give an indication of what size of tent is required. If you prefer more room go one size larger. 

WHAT IS THE BEST TYPE OF CANVAS TREATMENT? 

 Water and mildew treatment is normally applied to most canvas wall tents. However, less expensive canvas wall tents have no treatments applied. This non-treated canvas will shrink 8-12 % compared to 1-2 % for water and mildew treated wall tent. Therefore, I don't recommend purchasing any wall tent that is not treated.  Fire treatment can be added to any water and mildew treated canvas.  If your budget allows I recommend the fire, water and mildew treated canvas. The fire treated canvas is not totally fire proof. A continuous heat source or flame will cause the fire treated canvas to burn.  However, once the flame or heat source is removed the canvas will stop burning. To me, fire treatment is a form of insurance. However, remember no treatment is fire proof.  Always keep any item that can cause a fire a minimum of 2 feet from the canvas, Rich, owner.

HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO SET UP A CANVAS WALL TENTS? 

One person can easily set up a 8x10 or 10 x 12.  Two people can easily set up a 12 x14 or 14 x16. Two people for a 16 x 20 or 16 x 24  but it is much more difficult. Three people is much better. We have videos that show tent set up and our products.  Set up is very easy using a steel frame.

WHAT IS SUNFORGER?  

Sunforger is a type of treatment that provides water and mildew resistance. It is not a type of canvas.  Based upon my experience selling sunforger treated canvas, it is effective, but not superior to other types of water mildew treatment.  More info at info guide at  Sunforger Treatment.

WHAT PROCEDURES ARE NECESSARY TO PREVENT WALL TENT WOOD STOVE FIRE DANGERS DURING VERY HIGH WINDS?

Certain precautions are required if you plan on using a wall tent wood stove in a high wind area or if there is a possibility of high wind gusts.

I always wire the stove pipe damper to a stove side shelf hole in the event of high winds.  This wiring prevents the first stove pipe from becoming detached from the wood stove.

Based on my personal experience, high winds will cause stove pipe to become detached from the top of the stove or the higher stove pipes become detached.

When I was on a camping trip there were mild winds one night when I was in my wall tent. I was just getting into bed when a sudden high wind blast started that continued for 5-10 minutes. My cooking table against the back wall almost blew over.  After I got the table with all four legs back on the ground I turned around. On my stove the second stove pipe had become loose.  Flames were shooting out the top of the first pipe.  Fortunately, I keep heavy leather gloves near my stove. I reconnected the first stove pipe back together.  Shortly thereafter the outside second and third stove pipe became disconnected.  I reconnected these pipes. I went back inside the wall tent and had to reconnect the first and second pipes 2 more times until the high wind gusts stopped. 

Fortunately, I had wired the stove pipe damper to my stove side shelf holes or the first stove pipe would have become detached during this real life fire drill. 

The pipes coming loose inside the tent was very dangerous with flames shooting out the pipes. Remember, a fire treated tent is not fire proof.  A continual flame will cause canvas to burn or a synthetic wall tent to melt. This high wind gust situation could have destroyed my tent and ended my hunting trip.

To prevent wall tent stove pipes from coming loose tie a wire on both sides of your damper and secure wire to a side shelf hole on your stove.  Use metal screws to attach all pipes together. Secure pipes 2, 3 and 4 together with metal screws and slide pipes from the outside through the stove jack hole. Use metal screws to secure stove pipes 1 and 2 together.  Recommend you set your stove up at home initially to insure there are no problems at the campsite.

 Hopefully, my recommendations and real life experience with a wood stove during high winds will help you in future camping expeditions, Rich.

WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES OF SYNTHETIC WALL TENTS?

1. Breathability: Compared to natural materials like canvas, synthetic fabrics do not breathe as well. This can lead to increased condensation inside the tent, especially in humid conditions. 

 2. Heat Retention: Synthetic materials do not have the same insulating properties as natural fabrics like canvas. This will result in wall tents heating up more quickly in direct sunlight and being less effective at retaining warmth in cooler temperatures.

 3. UV Degradation: Synthetic fabrics are susceptible to UV degradation over time. Prolonged exposure to sunlight will cause the material to weaken and lose its color, reducing the lifespan of the tent. 

 4. Environmental Impact:  Some synthetic materials, particularly those derived from petroleum-based sources, have a higher environmental impact compared to natural materials. They may not be as biodegradable and the production process can contribute to pollution. 

 5. Less Aesthetic Appeal: While aesthetics are subjective, some campers prefer the natural and classic appearance of canvas wall tents over the more modern and synthetic look of some materials. 

 6. Noise: Synthetic materials can be noisy in windy conditions. Synthetic fabrics are much lighter than canvas and flap in the wind much more. The flapping of the fabric is much louder compared to the quieter rustling of natural materials.

 7. Water Resistance: While many synthetic fabrics are treated to be water-resistant, this treatment can wear off over time, especially with exposure to sunlight and weathering. Repeated use will require reapplication of water-resistant coatings. 

 8. Potential for Condensation: Synthetic materials will cause condensation inside the tent particularly if the tent is not well-ventilated. Condensation can be an issue in cold weather, leading to damp conditions inside the tent.  Below freezing conditions will cause this condensation to freeze inside the wall tent.

 9. Flammability: Some synthetic materials are more flammable than natural materials. It's important to follow safety guidelines and keep open flames away from wall tents. Synthetic materials normally very quickly when in contact with a heat source.

 10. Cost: High quality synthetic materials with advanced features can sometimes be more expensive than basic canvas tents. 

 Despite these disadvantages, some campers find synthetic wall tents to be a  convenient choice. Especially when considering factors like weight and quick drying. The best choice depends on individual preferences, intended use and the specific requirements of the camping or glamping experience. 

HOW DO I SET UP A CANVAS WALL TENT?   Our detailed video shows how to set up a tent over the wall tent frame. Remember, your tent should not fit over the frame tightly.  A tight fitting tent weakens seams and can cause canvas to tear. If your tent is tight determine how much you need to cut down your frame. If unsure, call for assistance. We will be glad to help you even if you purchased a tent elsewhere, Rich.

Materials Needed:

  • Wall tent with frame
  • Tent stakes or anchors
  • Ground tarp or commonly called floor (optional)
  • Mallet or hammer
  • Guy, rope lines

Set up Steps: 

1. Select a Suitable Location: Ensure the ground is level and free of rocks, sticks, and debris.  If possible, choose a site that allows for natural drainage to prevent water pooling around the tent. 

2. Lay Down a Ground Tarp (optional): Unfold the ground tarp or floor and position it where you plan to set up the tent. The tarp should be slightly smaller than the footprint of your tent to prevent water form collecting between the tarp and the tent floor. 

3. Assemble the Frame: Lay out all the frame components according to location of assembly.  Connect frame parts.  Assemble complete frame except legs on one side. 

4. Place Tent to the FrameDrape canvas wall tent over frame. Drape tarp or rainfly over the top of the tent. Raise the frame and assemble remaining legs. 

5. Secure the Corners: Check that each corner of the tent is properly aligned with frame corners. 

6. Stake Down the Tent: Start with the corners and stake them into the ground at a 45-degree angle. Use a  hammer to drive the stakes into the ground securely. Maintain some tension on the tent fabric as you stake it down to prevent sagging. 

7. Tension the Tent: Adjust the eave guy lines with tensioners to achieve proper tension in the tent fabric. Tensioning is crucial for stability and weather resistance. Tighten the guy lines gradually moving around the tent to ensure even tension. 

8. Secure the Rainfly (if applicable): Stake down the rainfly to keep it taut and ensure proper water runoff. 

9. Adjust and Fine-Tune: Walk around the wall tent, inspecting for any sagging or unevenness. Make minor adjustments as needed to achieve a taut and even pitch. 

10. Ridge Guy Lines If Necessary: Attach ridge guy lines for high winds. Stake these lines out at a 45-degree angle, creating additional stability, especially in windy conditions. 

Practicing setting up your tent at home before your trip will make this process much smoother in the great outdoors. 

 SHOULD I BUY A 10 oz or 12 oz CANVAS  WALL TENT?

As the owner of Wall Ten Shop, I am often asked if it is best to buy 10 or 12 oz canvas.  I prefer 10 oz wall tents. Some companies will try to upsell the more expensive 12 oz canvas.  BEWARE. My outfitter customers do not buy 12 oz canvas wall tents despite using their tents for months in extreme weather conditions.  Outfitters tell me the extra cost and extra weight is not worth it. A 10 oz canvas wall tent with a fly will last decades.  Costs less and is a much better system than than the 12 oz canvas.

If you want a 12 oz wall tent I sell the Montana Canvas tents 5% below Montana retail with free shipping.  The Montana 12 oz tents are the best available, top quality, with a great warranty for workmanship, Rich. 

 The choice between a 10 oz canvas tent and a 12 oz canvas wall tent depends on various factors, and both options have their advantages and considerations. Here are some factors to help you decide. 

10 Ounce Canvas Tent

1. Weight:

  • A 10 oz canvas wall tent is significantly lighter than a 12 oz tent. If you prioritize portability and plan to move the tent frequently, a lighter option may be more suitable. 

2. Breathability:

  • Lighter canvas tends to be more breathable. This can be an advantage in warmer weather, as it allows for better air circulation inside the tent, reducing the risk of condensation. 

3. Ease of Handling:

  • Due to its lighter weight, a 10 oz canvas tent is easier to handle during setup and takedown. This can be particularly beneficial if you prefer a  canvas wall tent that is quick and straightforward to manage. 

12 Ounce Canvas Tent

1. Durability:

  • A 12 oz canvas tent is generally more robust and durable than a 10 oz tent. 

2. Insulation:

  • Heavier canvas provides better insulation.  However, no canvas provides much insulation. The tent basically keeps the wind out.  When the stove goes out the temperature on the inside is about the same as the outside.

3. Sturdiness:

  • The additional weight of a 12 oz canvas wall tent can contribute to minimum increased stability and sturdiness. 

Considerations: 

1. Intended Use:

  • Consider the specific conditions and environments where you plan to use the tent. If you prioritize weight and breathability for warm weather camping, a 10 oz tent is sufficient. 

2. Budget: 

  • Heavier wall tents are more expensive. Consider your budget and whether the added durability and features of a 12 oz wall tent align with your budget and justify the higher cost. 

3. Personal Preferences: 

  • Your personal preferences and camping style play a crucial role. Some campers prioritize a lightweight and breathable tent.

In summary, if weight, breathability, and ease of handling are your primary concerns, a 10 oz canvas tent may be suitable. Do what is best for you.  Assess your specific needs, the intended use of the tent and your personal preferences to make an informed decision. 

 TESTIMONIALS

 Bought a wilderness 12 x14 wall tent and stove 20 years ago from you. Awesome tent has held up and kept us warm in some harsh Michigan deer camp weather. Been in heavy snowstorms, -20 actual temperatures and extreme wind and rainstorms over the years. Does not leak at all and has been outstanding. Thank you. With that being said I was wondering if I buy the the cook shack for it how do I get a rain fly for both of them. The tent and cook shack? Also can I use mild dish soap to clean it up or no? What is your recommendation? Thanks again. I really love it and it has served us well. Terry.

There is no comparison in price and quality in any canvas tent I have ever seen compared to your Wilderness tent. You definitely have the best wall tents available. Mark.

I have a couple outfitter friends and both recommended your outdoor canvas tents for the quality and the additional free features that other companies do not normally include. When outfitters recommend your products, that is good enough for me. I want to order a 16x20. John.

FEDEX misplaced my package. Instead of waiting for FEDEX to find my lost box you guys sent out another canvas wall tent immediately to insure I received it before I left for elk camp. I really appreciate your customer service. I have never been taken care of better. Lewis.
