Elk Mountain Tents For Sale
Elk Mountain Tents has some of the best options for canvas wall tents and bell tents that you can find, and they are quite reasonably priced, especially compared to many other tents of similar design and quality. Elk Mountain’s 13 ft. x 13 ft. canvas wall tent can be purchased for as little as $795, and the 13 ft. diameter Yukon bell tent for as little as $600. Both tents are made of a unique polyester canvas material that has many of the advantages of the traditional cotton canvas while managing to avoid many of the disadvantages. The material is lighter, more durable, and much stronger than cotton canvas. It should last you a lot longer as well, as it is more resistant to rainfall and UV rays and will not grow mold or mildew like cotton will. The fabric is naturally waterproof and has sealed seams, so there should be no worry that water will leak inside, even without a rainfly. Additionally, it does not absorb water as cotton does. The material is also reinforced wherever it comes into contact with the poles, which resolves the problem of poles tearing through the material after much use. Though it is polyester-based, it is as breathable as cotton, so you will not have to worry about condensation issues. Both the wall tent and the Yukon bell tent come with a stove jack and cover, allowing for convenient placement of a wood stove inside if desired. The jack comes with a 4 in., 5 in., and 6 in., circle sewn in, allowing you to cut it to the correct size once you know the size of the pipe on the stove you are using.
The Elk Mountain 13 x 13 Canvas wall tent has 4 windows (6 for the larger sizes), two on each side of the tent (each with a screen), that can be rolled up and tied in place or be Velcroed shut. There are 6 in. of extra material at the bottom of each wall., forming a sod cloth that prevents water from getting in at the bottom of the tent. It also has openings in the ridges at either side of the tent that can be conveniently opened and closed with a pull string, as well as being able to Velcro shut. The main corners of the tent can also Velcro and tie shut, solving the problem many similar tents have of poles ripping through the material. The sidewalls are 5 ft. high, which offers plenty of room to stand up and move around (one of the best things about wall tents). The roof of the tent extends beyond the edge of the wall to create eaves. This prevents water from running down the walls. The tent has a zippered door in the front and back of the tent, both of which include storm buckles for extra security.
The Yukon bell tent is the ideal tent to purchase if you want to go glamping on a budget. Glampers everywhere enjoy the comfort and luxury that come from bell tents, as they look nice, offer plenty of room, can keep warm with a wood stove, and essentially act as portable yurts. Elk Mountain’s bell tent has 4 screened windows and 4 screened air vents at the peak, allowing for plenty of airflow. The floor can zip in and out of the tent, and the 3 ft. sidewalls can be rolled up, allowing the tent to be converted into an awning to relax under and enjoy the outdoors in the cool shade. The 13 ft. diameter tent has 133 sq. ft. of floor space and the 8 ft. pole in the center allows plenty of room to stand up. All of this space makes the Yukon bell tent perfect for glamping, with space for a nice bed, all of your gear and food, and a wood stove to keep you warm and cozy during cold nights. The material the tent is made of makes it much lighter than many similar tents as well, weighing just 50 lbs.
