Hear From Our Happy Campers
I like camping but it can be hard to find a tent that gets me passionate about it. I'm so happy I purchased this one. It's roomy, easy to set up, and lightweight. I like that it has a good quality mesh netting on the openings to keep the mosquitos out
The BEST part of our 10' Signature Canvas Tent is that there's plenty of space for my husband & I to sleep comfortably. Seriously, out of the 12 nights or so that we've used it, I've gotten a good sleep every time
I love this tent! I can't wait to use it again in a couple weeks. It's so spacious, and the mesh panels allow for airflow, which is perfect for hot summer nights when you need to stay cool. The color is nice too, seems like it won't fade
I bought this tent because I go camping a lot with our Scouts troop & I have 12 years service in the Marines. I wanted something I could stand up in & not feel cramped. We camped in June for a week with 4 days of rain. NO LEAKS and the floor didn't feel moist. Awesome. I went with the 13' one.
What is a Wall Tent?
Wall tents have been used by people since 1690 for camping and hunting. They are a highly versatile shelter that can be pitched in a variety of environments. They are also known as "Shelter Tents." Wall tents are often used for hunting, fishing, camping, and can be used by a variety of outdoor enthusiasts, because they are extremely durable, and are usually made of thick, durable canvas and a sturdy framework built to have vertical walls and a roof-like top, rather than be teepee-like in their appearance.
Wall tents are an excellent choice for those who need more long-term, multi-season, and sometimes non-leisure camping purposes. They can even accommodate a wooden stove, making them great for Winter. Wall tents are the perfect solution for many campers that need something that will offer protection from cold winds and even rain. They're designed to be used in colder climates, so they're great for people who don't get out of their campsite much during the year.

Tips for caring for your wall tent
Every tent needs to be taken care of in order to make it last. There are a few things you should do to take care of your wall tent:
Wall tents are made of canvas. You will need to take care of the tent by using a sponge or scrub brush with soap and water to clean it. For the floor, you need to use a broom and sweep away any debris that might have entered. You can also vacuum your floor which will get down deep into the fabric so it is very clean.
If there develops a small tear over time from heavy usage, you should fix it right away. You don't want the tear to get bigger and consume more of the wall. The last, most critical part, is packing the tent up for storage. You have to make sure that the tent is not damp, this will put the canvas fabric in jeopardy of mold growing on it in storage.
What size is right for you?
A couple or small family might use a 4-6 person tent, while a large family might want a 10 person tent for more space. Picking out the size of your wall tent is really important. You're not just thinking about your next camping trip, you want to have enough space for future camping trips that you & your family/friends may want to go on too. What size tent is right for you really depends on how many people, or family members, there are in your group. If you're on your own, any size will do (and you don't need to buy anything). But if your family is bigger than one person, then it's more practical to pick one that has more space.
A wall tent is a big tent that goes up on a frame. You can put a queen size mattress in it. A small wall tent that will fit 2-4 people comfortably would be atleast 14 feet long, 10 feet wide, and 6 1/2 feet tall for everyone to sleep comfortably.
