    ***AWESOME***

    I had been researching heavy duty bell tents and as many manufacturers and details as I could find for days and was so glad I found your website. We bought the 20' timberline exchange bell tent plus lots of accessories for it including the mat, the fly, an extra door, extra stakes, the roof jack and a footprint. I was thrilled to find a company that had: taller side walls, fire retardant, thicker canvas and floor, and a fly. I had found several that had 1 or 2 of those but none that had all 4. I also love that this tent has both a wall jack and a roof jack. I also love the included poles for the outside of the walls at each guy rope hold location. And the replaceable door is a huge plus as well - I imagine that's the first thing that eventually needs replaced due to much use. We also purchased a large double view winnerwell stove with multiple accessories to be able to heat the tent and add light and ambiance and cook food and heat water indoors. Another reason we went with you was the excellent customer service. Joe is awesome. I cannot say enough about his responses and his response time. I have multiple messages out to other tent companies that remain unresponded to. They either never replied or they replied partially or they eventually stopped responding to the thread as I had multiple follow up questions that they got tired of or didn't know how to answer. We also love your website. We watched your videos and read your articles. I have a couple suggestions: 1. Include or offer carabiners. Where the guy ropes tie to the canvas loops in the tent, they friction cut the edge of the canvas loop. Our new tent already has wear here which we're sad about and don't know how to fix. It's minor because we've only used it once but with a lot of use it may eventually reach the stitching. A cool thing about your tents is that if ever a canvas loop got compromised, the rivets for the sidewall poles would work as a backup. We're buying small carabiners to prevent this from happening next time so it won't get any worse. The carabiner will clip to the canvas loop and the guy line rope will tie to the carabiner so that the rough surface of the rope, and the thin edge of the canvas loop never touch or oscillate against each other during movement caused by wind. Even an extra rope loop between the guy line rope and the canvas loop would help decrease this because I noticed that the wear only happened on the knot side of the loop and not the other side of that makes sense. We used a double half hitch knot. So it sort of pinched it and rubbed it. Caribiners are not too expensive or heavy and they can be multi use so we're going to go with that for the solution. We might even get one for each side of the guy line ropes so we can also attach one to the stake side of the rope to keep the rope out of the dirt when you want to pound the stake in all the way for maximum stability but still be able to adjust the guy line. I'm still trying to invent a replacement or modification or protection for the guy line rope metal adjuster pieces for when they go through freeze cycles. Meaning that when we camp in the winter and the guy lines and metal adjuster pieces get frozen water on them they won't be adjustable. 2. Include or strongly recommend an extra set of stakes with the rainfly. The rainfly has to tie to its own set of stakes, separate from the tent's stakes, set out at 7' to 8' from tent edge. Otherwise the underside of the rainfly will rub on the tip of the sidewall pole. This won't happen at every pole location depending on fly position and wind intensity and direction but it has the potential to happen at every sidewall pole location other than the one above the door and the ones nearest the door. It happened on ours at 3 sidewall pole locations and rubbed a coating or a layer off the underside of the fly at those locations. Hopefully this doesn't compromise the rainfly material at these locations or cause it to wear through prematurely. But with the tent stakes set at 3' to 5' away from the tent wall, and the fly stakes set at 7' to 8' from the tent wall that should give them a sufficient differential in pull angle from the peak to not come in contact with eachother. And if I'm wrong, the back up plan is to remove the offending sidewall poles during windy conditions or invent a sidewall pole cap that has a surface and texture that won't harm the fly. I'm also trying to invent a way to use the fly and the stove at the same time. This may not be possible but next time we use it we are going to try to install the fly over about half of the tent with the other half folded over itself to leave the stove flu side uncovered if that makes sense because I don't think that fly can be anywhere near the heat of the flu and even if you could put a stove jack in it, it would still melt it. The rainfly also has to be place centered on the tent before doing any center pole lifting. Once the tent is up there's no safe or effective way to get the fly on or off. That's a good tip for an instructional video or article. I thought of it just before entering the laid out tent with the pole and it worked perfectly even though it didn't stay perfectly centered on the tent when I raised it. I was able to adjust it to center after raising. 3. Offer sandbags or loops to anchor to sand bags. These could be a good way to anchor stakes in poor ground conditions. I don't know if we'll ever do it but it would be cool to be able to set this tent up on the beach or on red rock or in a parking lot. It would just be cool to be able to set the tent up independent of ground conditions, be it too hard, too soft, or frozen. Even in good ground condition areas you cloud still hit 1 or 2 stake locations that won't work, in which case you could mix and match stakes and sand bags. This tent needs every single stake to work properly. And the reason we ordered sand bags instead of expensive screw stakes is because they're more versatile. Sand bags work in terrain that's too hard or too soft. Screws only work I'm ground that's optimal or too soft. Of course we'll use your stakes as the preferred method and only use the sandbags when we have to. But we haven't decided yet the best way to attach the guy lines to the sand bags which could be filled with sand, rocks, dirt, or ice to achieve the weight necessary to hold the force of the tent through the guy line. 4. The canvas skirt on the outside of the bottom of the sidewall is a great idea. Although I don't know how to fully take advantage of is usefulness because the sidewall poles prevent it from being staked in its extended position. But maybe it's meant to hang in place and does a lot of good in that position and doesn't necessarily need to be staked out. 5. Better SEO. For some reason I found your website at the tail end of my research. In fact we had tents in other companies' carts before finding your company. In fact, the way I found you was the search results to one of my queries suggested one of your bell tent camping articles. Halfway through reading the article I realized the authors of this article also make and sell the tents they're taking about. Until then I thought it was just a really nice article about how to camp with a bell tent. Then I searched a little more and found your full site and products available. And all that was after searching extensively for all the bell tent manufacturers I could find. 6. Don't have such tall people in your tent videos, it makes your tent look small. And your tents are huge. We love how big our timberline exchange bell tent is. I could write a list 5 times as long about the things i love about your tents. The list of positives far exceeds the list of suggestions. Thank you for being such an awesome company and such awesome people. We look forward to many days and nights enjoying our bell tent. Keep up the great work.
