So I have this absolutely wonderful "pavillion" -- a little white canvas wedge tent -- that I completely love... and am not likely to ever have use of again. I'm paying to store it, so I figure it makes sense to pass it on to someone who will use it and love it as much as I do, just as it was passed on to me.

I think it's a Tentsmith's Sutler Wedge Tent. It is certainly built to their standards, and in very good shape.

It's a good size for one person and their persona. It's nine feet deep and 12 feet across the front; note that, because the slope of the sides, that's not all useable space. It's about 7ft tall on the inside at the peak.

It served me through five or six Pennsics, as solid as a rock and never leaked. It is excellent in high winds and heavy rains. It's made of Sunforger canvas, which means that it doesn't heat up in the sun like nylon (you get to sleep in a bit more!) and still breathes like untreated canvas, but doesn't wick water into the tent when touched from the inside the way regular canvas tents do.

Additionally, I was told when I bought it that it was the flame-retardant version, though I am pleased to say I've not had occasion to test that.

Interested? Let me tell you more about my awesome beloved tent, both the good things and the bad. )

I understand that new, this tent would be $520 for the canvas shell alone, and all poles, stakes, etc would be additional. I am asking $400 for the whole kit (including rug).

Right now the tent is in Somerville, and you would have to be able to come collect it. I would be happy to haul it out so you may inspect it, and I can show you how to set it up, and how to put it away.
