A canvas tent provides the durability and comfort you need on your camping trips. Many canvas tents are spacious and can accommodate multiple people for various needs. You may need a cabin tent to fit multiple and give some privacy with individual rooms, you may need a roof tent for your caravan camping adventures or you may need a party tent to keep guests safe and comfortable for an outside event
If the latter is your immediate need, you may need something like Cabela’s Outfitter’s canvas wall tent that comes with a sewn in floor. This white cotton duck canvas fire-retardant design is also water and mildew resistant to keep it durable for a long time, especially if your camping trip or other event will last for days or even weeks at a time. The nylon webbing flooring edges resist frays and rips around the ten-ounce waterproof laminate vinyl. This wall tent also allows you to put in a camp stove and has doors on each end. Cabela’s tent is available in five different sizes, so whether you need a 2 man tent, a 4 man tent or an 8 man tent, you will find one to accommodate you. The smaller designs cost about $950 while the largest size may cost $1500.
Cabela also has other livable tents such as the Kodiak canvas cabin tent with awning. An entire family can relax in this bed tent with or without the removable screen room. However, the screen room does provide extra livable space for picnics and shading or other relaxation activities as well as bug protection. The Hydra-Shield silicone treated canvas is watertight enough to keep out the rain but still breathable. There are two entrances via front and side doors and five windows made of a screen mesh. Like the Outfitter’s wall tent, it can accommodate multiple people as a 6 man tent and costs less than $600.
The Montana lodge tent with frame is one of the latest advancements in canvas tents. Like the Kodiak, it comfortably sleeps up to six people but features a unique hexagonal design to create its spacious shape. The nearly ten-foot ceiling leaves plenty of headroom and accommodates a central stove placement. The lightweight Relite canvas constructs the ceiling, floors and walls while the white cotton duck treated roof resists fire, mildew and water as well as the Relite materials. The two full-height doors make it easy to get in and out of the tent and the four windows help with the ventilation. Unlike the Outfitter’s tent, the Montana comes in one size and costs about $1500. You may also get the Montana wall tent without a frame. Such a tent might cost between $500 and $900 depending upon the size. You might also get added protection with a tent fly should you choose.
If one of the primary features you need in a canvas tent is easy set up, then Kodiak’s flex bow tent only requires one person to pitch this design. Like the others, the cotton duck canvas fabric is Hydra-Shield treated but breathable with a polyester-reinforced vinyl floor. There are two D-shaped doors and four screen mesh windows along with other features such as accessory pockets, large attached awning and an adjustable gear loft. This Kodiak tent comes in two sizes costing either $450 for a sleeping capacity of six persons or $550 for the sleeping capacity of an 8 man tent.
When you have a number of people to accommodate on a camping trip or other outside event, a canvas tent may help solve your space problems. You cover the necessary amount of sleeping space and perhaps even have room for other necessities such as a camping stove.
