LOSBERGER RDS This listing here is kind of "Combo" listing because i am including two separate businesses in this write-up. First, is the supplier of the tent shown in the picture at the right. And that is "Armed Forces International". I think they are an authorized distributor for the European company called: "Losberger" a large tent manufacturer and they do make very big tents for large scale military and commercial use. Actually, if it weren't for the tent pictured on the right, i would not include them here. Losberger RDS (Rapid Deployment system) produces an extensive range of rapid deployment shelters for the use of aid agencies, military forces and rescue services all over the world. Whether or not a private individual can purchase just one of these tents is something i do not know.
►Losberger Rapid Deployment Systems is known worldwide for its activities in the provision of deployable shelters. Under the names Losberger Rapid Deployment Systems SAS and Losberger RDS GmbH the company provides their deployable shelters for a range of applications. Examples for the use of Losberger shelters include safe accommodation, kitchens, laundries and medical facilities for civilians affected by natural disasters or displaced by war. Losberger also provide mobile shelters for military forces. These shelters can be used in the same way as the shelters for civilians but can also be used for the safe storage and / or maintenance of military vehicles, aircrafts and equipment. Structures for military use can also feature a camouflage pattern to avoid detection by enemy forces.◄
PODPADS Here is a business located in the United Kingdom which seems to specialize in using canvas with wood doors and wood platforms creating a combination wall tent & wood living quarters. I am not sure what they do, but it seems they set up these Pod Pads in different locations which have some sort of festival or special event going on. Groups of people rent these units for their special event. But now you can buy some of these for your own personal use. Picture on the right is of their Bell Tent model: "BellePad".

Kwik Kamp wall tents are great for hunting and camping, and durable enough for your long pack trips and outfitter excursions. With your Kwik Kamp canvas wall tent you will keep warm and dry on those cold snowy or rainy nights, while you can open the tent door and windows on those warm days to let in a nice breeze. Add a window in one or more of the walls. All of our wall tents finish at the full floor size, providing you with a tent that is approximately 10% larger than the competition’s "Cut Size" tents.◄
WESTERN WALL TENTS This company is located in Missoula Montana. I have added the following information from their website as a source of education for you the viewer of this webpage. These tents are probably suitable for full time living.
►We work with the leading manufacturers of canvas wall tents, wood stoves, and camping gear in order to bring you the highest quality products at the lowest possible prices. Our wall tents are world-renowned and perfect for your outdoor activities such as elk hunting, deer hunting, scout camp, rendezvous re-enactment, Civil War re-enactment or just camping with the family! The most popular canvas weight for tent making is 10oz canvas. Most of our wall tents are made from canvas. Canvas is a cotton-based material that breathes well and provides insulation. Ultra-light synthetic materials such as Relite are available if weight is an issue. However these materials rarely breathe as well as canvas, and provide little insulation because they are so thin. Our recommendation is a 10oz canvas if you want lightweight, and a 12oz if durability is more important than weight. This refers to the weight of the canvas per square yard before any type of treatment is added. Treatment can add 10-40% more weight to the canvas. The 10oz canvas is a nice compromise between strength and tent weight. Although the old 17oz army tents were definitely durable, it usually took an army to set one up because they were so heavy! Most people want a lighter tent that is easier to pack and set up. Few companies are making heavier tents these days. However, a 12oz canvas provides more durability and insulation than a 10oz canvas. Our line of "MAGNUM Tents" are made with 12oz preshrunk army duck canvas. The downside is that it is 20% heavier than 10oz canvas. About tent floors: A sewn-in floor makes it very difficult to set a tent up with an internal frame. Furthermore, it also makes for a difficult escape should you need to leave your tent in a hurry. Therefore, we normally sell floors that are separate from the tent and can be staked down or snapped to the tent walls. Alternatively, you can buy outdoor carpeting or a canvas tarp from your local hardware store to use as a floor. About what tent size to buy: We recommend 30 SF for each person, 30 SF for a wood stove, and/or 30 SF for each table; so this figures out for 1 person, 1 stove & 1 table; a 10ftx10ft tent would be minimum size requirement. This allows for plenty of room to move around in the tent. If you just want to pack people in for sleeping purposes, you can get away with 20 SF per person.◄
BECKEL CANVAS These people sell high quality wall tents from their business located in Portland Oregon. Actually, they sell all kinds of neat items made from cotton canvas along with a variety of different tent types. They have been in business for quite awhile.

KNI-CO MANUFACTURING Looks to me like a very nice stove for your wall tent. And these people are correct in my opinion - a wood stove heats best in a tent or other canvas shelter. Picture on the right is of their "Alaskan Stove".
►Our lightweight camp stoves will make camping in the cold just like snuggling around your wood stove at home. Camp fires are great, until the wind starts blowing and the sleet starts pounding into your freezing body.
You go into your tent and fire up that little propane heater which raises the temperature a whole half a degree. You are miles from the nearest road and you'll have to stay in camp to ride out this storm. There is no need to climb into your sleeping bag and shiver when you have a quality Sheepherder camp stove hand made in the United States from Kni-Co Manufacturing, Inc. We make a whole range of wood camp stoves and wood tent stoves to meet your individual needs, from our light and small Packer Junior to our rugged Alaskan and our large collapsible Tundra Take Down model. Our camp stoves have proven themselves all over the country, in all types of extreme weather conditions, and during every season of the year. Cook right on top of the stove and put the items you just want to keep warm on the attached table. Pour some hot water out of the side water tank and make up some hot chocolate or hot buttered rum. Of course simply staying warm during a chilly night is also a good thing, and our stoves and accessories will help your canvas walled tent take the roughness out of roughing it. Don't have a suitable tent? We have one of the finest in our Big Horn unit.◄
This company is based in Molde, Norway. They have a couple of models that are all quonset hut shape, no classic tent styles. They ship worldwide. I think they create shelters for emergency response situations. I do not know yet if you can buy these tents one at a time. They probably sell mostly to large emergency response organizations like the United Nations.

NORTHWEST SHELTERS This is an extremely interesting situation in my opinion. A group of unemployed people taking complete responsibility for their lives in Canada and making from scratch their own job. Possibly this is a model situation that could be duplicated by other people in other unrelated industries.
►We are committed to bringing quality products to our customers and nothing less. Our story begins like many other small companies - in October 2008 a group of us got laid off from our jobs. Being involved in the sewing industry for 28 years and having knowledge of manufacturing wall tents from our previous work experience — it wasn't hard for us to start where we left off and start our own company. We are a growing company and we plan to stay around for generations. Our future plans are to expand and manufacture most of the materials used in the design of a wall tent and experiment with new ideas and design.◄
►Our business is family owned and was established in 1984. Our reputation has been built on crafting innovative canvas and synthetic fabric products from superior materials to the satisfaction of our customers. We are located in Nampa, Idaho at 107 McClure Ave, 83651.

We don't claim that our products are the best, our customers do! Our products are constructed of top quality Grade A canvases
No Seconds and No lesser grades! Western Canvas has improved the hem to ensure the longevity of the canvas closest to the ground by placing webbing reinforced spurred grommets with replaceable ropes in the hem to stake the cover down. This added feature greatly diminished the amount of moisture that can saturate the base of the cover causing the canvas to mildew and rot. When the ropes rot you simply replace the ropes unlike the more common webbing loops sewed directly into the hem. For strength, all panel are sewn with a double lock-stitch (as opposed to looped or zigzag stitches) and shingle style lap seam to aid in water run-off. All seams are sewn with a Filco thread, which is a cotton shell wrapped around a polyester core for strength. The outer cotton shell will swell when wet and fill the needle hole to provide maximum protection from leakage. All stress areas are double reinforced and all ties are heavy weight cotton webbing.◄

KODIAK CANVAS Here looks to be a well made tent. These line of tents do not come equipped with a stove jack, but they may be suitable for other types of heating apparatus like propane but be very careful, please. They have a very good warranty to the original purchaser of their tents.
►Kodiak Canvas tent company was born in the rugged Rockies. In the five plus years we have been in business, we have quickly earned a reputation for making some of the finest tents available.

Made to Last: When properly cared for, one can expect a Kodiak Canvas to far, far, outlive a cheaper made tent.◄
CAPITAL CANVAS This Canadian company will make custom tent sizes for you, plus they offer an aluminum frame to be used with their tents. Their starting tent includes a stove pipe ring on the front left side wall, 2 windows, sod cloth and single zipper door.
►Capital Canvas is a Canadian company specializing in high-quality, durable wall tents. Wall tents from Capital Canvas are built to withstand even the harshest Canadian climates. Capital Canvas allows you to buy direct from the manufacturer saving you money without sacrificing on quality. Capital Canvas Wall Tents are all made in Canada out of 10.10 ounce Sunforger® marine grade canvas with fire retardant, water and mildew protection. One customer’s testimony: When you buy a canvas wall tent from Capital Canvas, you can purchase the canvas alone or with a fit to size aluminum frame.
What really appealed to us about a canvas wall tent is the amount of space the tent offered and how easily it packed down. A 10x12 tent offers a lot of space! We were able to fit two cots, a fold out dinner table, two chairs, and of course a small stove in our tent; at no time did it feel cramped. The headroom is great as well — I'm only 5ft 10in but there is at least 7ft of headroom down the center of the tent. The tent was very easy to take down and pack away. It takes about 10 minutes to set up and packs down to one medium and one small bag. Of course the poles need to be bungeed together, but they don't take up much space in the back of the truck. We even took the tent out this past weekend with the wife’s car and it didn't take up an unreasonable amount of space — we were still able to bring the coolers, cots and fishing gear with the seats folded down. One thing the trip proved is that these tents are of good quality. We slept in it for 45 nights and set it up close to 20 times without a rip or leak. These tents are built to last. Capital Canvas’s wall tents all feature 10.10oz canvas, army duck, double weave, marine shrunk, fire treated, Sunforger® finish, sturdy welded fittings, stove pipe ring with flap, window, reinforced grommets, and double-stitching. They also back their tents with a 2 year warranty on all craftsmanship.◄
DAVID ELLIS CANVAS PRODUCTS

►Why should you buy a wall tent from me? Because that guy behind the sewing machine there... Well that’s me. Yah, I still do most of the sewing around here. That means that when you tell me what you want there is a 90% chance that is what you will get. We are a small shop, so it’s easy to pay close attention to detail; this also enables us to upgrade our designs without sacrificing our consistency. I think for this reason we have the best tent to offer in the industry. Am I qualified? I have been sewing since 1981 starting with upholstery and car interiors. I began to focus mostly on boat canvas and awnings, that was 20 years ago. For the past 10 years I have been cowboycamp.net which means that canvas tents is my priority. I make a western style wall tent, this means that because of ridge openings and plenty of reinforcement, a large rough timber can be passed through the peaks of the tent. This simplifies set up when using poles obtained from the forest. I make and sell tent frames, but I specialize in making the canvas with this type of rustic set up in mind. Stove hole and sod cloth; are standard items on most of my tents.◄
WOOD WALL TENT FRAME
I put this example up here for you to see what a well made permanent wall tent frame made from wood might look like. Please click on the picture at the right to see a larger view. Notice the side walls used to keep the wind from collapsing the tent.
►This is a list of the material that you need to put together a 14 x 16 wall tent frame: Blocking= 3 pcs 4x4x16ft, Floor = 13 pcs 2x4x13ft-9in, 2 pcs 2x4x16ft, 7 sheets 1/2 plywood. Walls 20 pcs 2x4x6ft, Wall studs 6ft-6in is better as it gives you room to store
things overhead, like a loft.
5 pcs 2x4 16ft for side/wall plates and ridge pole
4 pcs 2x4 13ft-6in back and front wall plates
2 pcs 2x4 10ft door frame
8 sheets 3/8 plywood
1 sheet 5/8 or 3/4 for the door
Rafters 10 pcs 2x4x8ft These will take a little planing to cut the angles right on the ends of the rafters, the easiest way is to lay the 8ft piece on the top of the wall to draw the
3 lbs of 3in deck screws
6 lbs of 11/4 deck screws
thumb latch for the door
If I am building the beds and/or desks/interior and the works I allow 10-15 pcs 2x4 16's and 5 sheets of 1/2 and 5 sheets of 3/8 plywood for each interior and it works out pretty close over a finished camp. Also, when I am pre-fabing the frames, I rip 2in x 21/2in out of 2x8's to cut down on the weights (1/3 less) sometimes it makes a big difference. I don’t rip the 2x4 floor joists though. If you like I can make up a material list for the larger tents as well, but you would have a better idea as to what you need for the various interiors. Let me know. In the larger tents I recommend a door in both ends, and seeing as the tents need to be made we can move or put in windows as you prefer them ie more in the kitchen, and less it the dry, we could even allow for another door on the side wall . . . However you like. Note: You do not need to use the full 4ft sheets of plywood on the walls, you could rip those in half as well to save on material/weights, it is just more comfortable to have that hard wall above the sides of the beds, especially in grizzly bear country.◄

►Three guys and a tent . . . That’s how it all started. Three camping buddies talking over many evening campfires about how to build the better tent. One that wouldn't leak, but was roomy.
