Description

Show Description

This base camp bungalow offers you and three full-grown friends all the floor space and standing headroom of an old-time cabin tent. Yet it packs down smaller than many modern three person shelters.

The single wall construction saves weight and bulk, and is quick to set up. Vertical walls let you stand up straight and walk around inside. Large widows and awnings at either end allow venting, even in the rain. Multiple guyline attachment points let you lash it down when the wind picks up.

  • Removable bathtub floor (overlaps the walls inside) keeps out creatures and wetness.
  • Without the floor, you can enclose a picnic table, or rig an adventure race aid station. Or customize the barn to be half floored and half floor-free.
  • Eight mesh pockets and three interior lantern hooks complete the appointments for gracious living in camp.
