This tent is designed after the Range Tipi. It reached its height of popularity in the early 1850s. There is some evidence that this style of tent was used as early as 1820. This tent is very fast to set up. It needs only two lightweight poles or a single pole in the center. The Trapper/Pyramid has reinforced stake loops and a 12″ sod cloth. The top of the tent is reinforced with a double thick patch sewn in. The door is sewn on. Pole or poles not included.
