RAFTERS FOR EACH TENT SIZE
6' SIDE WALL OPTION
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.

SHIPPING BAGS for floors, fly, extended fly, porches and cook shacks options are not large enough to be used for storage bags.
Recommend you read TENT SET UP LOCATIONS before you set up your tent to avoid wind issues that can destroy your tent.
FLY IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED
Fly is a protective tarp that covers the roof, extend the life expectancy of your tent. Also, there are thousands of needle holes in your tent and occasionally a needle hole does not close when the tent is wetted down. The only way to insure your tent does not leak is to put a fly on your tent.
EVERY MONTH WE GET CALLS FROM CUSTOMERS WHO BUY A FLY AFTER USING THEIR TENT. Normally customers have spark holes in their tent roof. Or dirt, pitch and tar on their roof that won't come off. A fly is strongly recommend at the time of purchase to avoid possible roof issues. And most importantly, to increase life expectancy of your tent. Rich
FLY ADVANTAGES- SUMMARY
SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE LIFE OF YOUR TENT. The roof is the first part of a tent that normally fails.
Prevents stove spark burn holes in roof. It is much easier and cheaper to replace a fly, if necessary, than a tent.
Provides another moisture barrier to prevent leaks.
Protects the cotton canvas from harmful UV rays. Put a cotton shirt outside during the summer and see how UV rays destroys the cotton.
Keeps roof clean. When camping under a tree, a tree rains down dirt during rain storms.
Prevents pitch and tar getting on the roof. Removing tree pitch and tar requires a harsh detergent which destroys the roof water, mildew and fire treatment. Then you will have leaks in your roof.
Fly provides 1 foot overhang on each side of tent. Forces water and snow 1 foot away from side wall.
Water and snow slides off fly quicker than canvas roof as the fly is completely smooth.
Provides some insulation value when there is an air gap between fly and roof.
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.
When you receive your tent, set it up, and completely wet it down. Especially on the seams, both inside and outside seams on your tent. Wetting down your tent will cause the canvas to shrink and help close the thousands of needle holes in your tents.
THE FRAME IS DESIGNED NOT TO FIT TIGHT ON YOUR FRAME TO ALLOW FOR TENT CANVAS SHRINKAGE. All tent canvas will shrink 1-3 % after it becomes wet.
If you are not concerned about a slightly loose tent, the tent will naturally shrink overtime as a result of 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 extremely skin tight jeans.
