View Full Version : WTB - Used Wall Tent Civil War era or before for reenacting

Good Day all,
My wife and I are just entering the reenacting world and need a tent to start out. We are looking for a good broken in tent, with or without the wood poles, stakes etc to use for our first camp out in the spring. Who has something for us?

I have a common tent (commonly known as an "A frame") available. It was made by Yakima Tents (http://www.yakimatent.com/civil.html). Its dimensions are: Length: 7' 2" Width: 7' 10" Ridge: 6' 9". It was made of 10 oz single filled duck. It does not have a floor. I made two upright poles and a ridge pole for the tent. All three poles were painted with two coats of olive drab paint. One of the upright poles was reinforced with a piece of metal; the other upright pole should have this done as well since it is starting to crack at the end. I made enough wooden stakes for the tent. If you live near New Jersey you could pick it up. If we attend the same event next year I could bring it with me. If it has to be shipped I would advise just getting the tent and making your own poles and stakes. Yakima Tent charges $150 for this tent. I would like to get $100 for it, which does not include shipping. If you are interested, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
