This tent was very popular during the late 1700s through the 1800s. It is very simple to put up and requires two upright poles and one ridge pole. The base of the tent is reinforced with 3/4″ cotton webbing with heavy stake loops. It has a 12″ sod cloth, overlapping door flaps, and a 12″ wear strip for the ridge pole. We recommend the front door/ back door design, so you can open it up to be a lean-to or just to let a little air in on those hot summer days. Poles not included.
