5 foot walls measured from outside of tent.


6' side walls provide much more headroom and usable tent space.  6' walls allows a person to get next to a wall without hitting your head against rafters or canvas roof.

 Some companies only have 4' 7" sidewalls which severely restricts how much space you can actually use.

Strongly recommend you ask your suppliers the finished height of side walls before purchasing so you will not be surprised or disappointed upon delivery.

        6 Foot option only available on FIRE, water and mildew treated tents

 CANVAS HOT TENTS are basically the same design as any canvas tent with a stove jack.  Canvas hot tent by definition is any canvas tent shelter that has a stove jack that allows the use of a wood stove to heat the tent.  Every Wall Tent Shop tent is a canvas hot tent as all canvas tents listed have a fireproof stove jack that allows the stove pipe to go out the roof or wall.   


Took my new cold weather tent on my first winter camping trip.  I was amazed how warm the tent was inside when it was 10 degrees outside.  The wilderness 5 stove was a perfect size for my 14 x16.  I was fortunate to have a hardwood to burn in my stove overnight.  Woke up early in the morning and still had coals to easily start my fire. The tent is well made and reinforced exceptionally.  The door storm flap really protected my door zipper during snow periods from ice and snow.  The fly tarp Connor recommended worked exceeding well.  With an inside quick roof push the snow would easily slide off the smooth fly tarp.  Not once did I have any water or snow penetrate the fly tarp or the roof canvas.  Overall very pleased with my winter canvas tent.  Next year I will add a cook shack from you. Thanks again, Jerry. 32310

SHIPPING BAGS for floors, fly, extended fly, porches and cook shacks options are not large enough to be used for storage bags.

RECOMMENDATION: ALWAYS KEEP YOUR TENT ROOF AND FLY TAUT SO WATER CAN QUICKLY BE REMOVED FROM YOUR TENT.  Water can collect on the roof in an "eave trough" which is  a low area just before the sidewall created by a not tight roof or loose fly.

Canvas should be very taut on a tent frame, especially, if set up for extended periods of time and a fly always used.  Fly should also be tight to avoid water in an eave trough.  Water will eventually go through the fly if saturated for weeks.  Canvas saturated in water will rot and mildew regardless of water mildew protection applied. There is no warranty for eave rot.

Recommend you read TENT SET UP LOCATIONS before you set up your winter canvas tent to avoid wind issues that can destroy your tent.

A cold weather tent with stove will easily keep you warm at night and dry all your clothes.  I normally recommend buying 1 size larger stove than you think you need.  Don't put more wood in it than you need to keep warm. If it ever gets really cold when camping you will be able to add more wood to stay warm and comfortable. 

Insure you purchase a canvas winter tent with stove jack that allows you to have a wood stove for heat. If you don't plan on initially using it you might change your mind later.  Also, it will be much easier to sell a canvas winter tent with stove jack if you decide to give up camping in extreme weather.

If you plan on leaving your canvas winter tent with stove jack erected during the winter it is recommended you have steel rafters every 2 feet to handle snow loads. Houses have rafters every 2 feet for snow loads for a reason. There is no guarantee that a tent will not collapse under heavy snow loads even with rafters every two feet.

I recommend taking down your winter canvas tent if you are not going to be present at the camp site everyday.  Each year I have customers call and order a new tent because their tent collapsed under snow loads.

Fly is strongly recommended.  Snow and water runs off the smooth poly surface much better than a canvas roof.

Nylon winter tents with stove are not recommended.  Any sparks from the chimney pipe will easily burn holes in the nylon roof.  Even when using a canvas tent with stove it is imperative that you have a tarp, commonly called a fly, to protect your roof.  It is much better to have an occasional hole in the fly than the roof. A fly tarp can be repaired with duct tape.

Some of my customers stack hay bales along the outside wall of their cold weather camping tent for insulation and to blunt any strong winds.  Using hay bales is more common for extended hunting trips in high wind areas.

Never put a stove directly on top of canvas or vinyl floor. A fire proof mat under the stove is recommended for any canvas winter tent with stove.  A fire proof heat shield can be tied to the side wall frame also for extra fire protection.

Regardless of the type of winter canvas tent for sale you purchase you must purchase a canvas winter tent with stove jack.  Correct or common terminology for a tent with stove vent opening is a tent with stove jack.

Hunting in cold weather tents requires a specific stove size for your temperature requirements.  You must determine how cold it will be, the weight and size of stove for transporting and also burn time requirements to keep you warm at night.

A propane stove is not as safe as wood.  Every year campers and hunters die in their sleep due to propane leaks.

One year I was lazy and used a propane heater at night because I was going on a short hunting trip.  Fortunately, I woke up the first night and smelled a propane leak coming from a defective fitting.  The next day I went home for my wood stove.  It cost me a day of hunting but it was worth it.  I will never use another propane heater.  I also use a long-lasting battery lantern to reduce the possibility of propane leaks.  I use my wood stove for cooking. However, I do occasionally use a propane stove but I turn off the propane tank and place the tank outside at night.

I have been in many winter tents with stove for the last 50 years. I only had to be lazy one time to almost pay a heavy price for being a fool and too lazy to cut wood.

I am going back to the motto I have had for 50 years, " canvas winter tent with stove." Rich

Leaving a tent set up for extended periods of time. Water can collect on the roof in an "eave trough".  The trough is the area at the bottom of roof just before the side horizontal tent frame poles. Canvas should be very tight on frame if set up for extended periods of time and a fly used.  Fly should also be tight to avoid water and snow in an eave trough.  Canvas saturated in water will rot and mildew regardless of water mildew protection applied. There is no warranty for eave rot.

FIRE RESISTANT CANVAS: Meets CPAI 84 fire retardant code. If a winter canvas tent is not specifically treated for fire resistance it will burn quickly. Fire Resistant canvas will only burn when there is a flame source present on the canvas. When you remove the flame source the wall tent will stop burning. However, there is no wall tent made that will not burn.
