Closeout 16’ (5M) Fernweh™ bell tent
3d tour

3D Tour

Almost Perfect 5M Fernweh Bell Tent.

A handful of these tents have been set aside in our warehouse for a couple of years and they need a home!  This tent is perfect for casual use, as is, but with a little effort you could engineer it to withstand several consecutive months of use per year.

This lot of tents doesn't meet the high standards of our 16' Fernweh bell tent based in the following characteristics: 

  • The canvas color is more beige than cream. 
  • The bottom caps on the sidewall poles are easily removed (they could be glued on though).
  • There is not a center pole marker on the floor (so you simply need to eyeball the pole to set it at a 90 degree angle by moving it an inch or two during set-up).

These tents are made with the heavy & durable 11.5oz (390 gsm) canvas, that was pre-treated for mildew and flame retardancy.  Each is waterproof, tough and durable.  If you'd like to keep this batch of tents up for more than a week at a time, then we'd highly suggest reproofing the canvas for protection against mildew in humid environments for added assurance.
