    Wo makes the best quality wall tent. Looking for 12x14 minimum size maybe 14x16.
    I'm going with the buy once cry once attitude. Want to get one that will last my lifetime.

    Any recommendations dos and donts would be appreciated

    Been using my Montana Canvas for over 2 years now. I think it is a very good tent.

    My buddy has a Cabellas 12x12. He's talking about getting another one. Light easy to set. I have a 12x12, 4' walls a little small but it's got 25 years of use. I think it's a Montana also. Look at getting a frame work also, handy.

    +1. I've used them for years. Very good tents with great people to deal with.

    I have two tents the TT Tent and a 12'X15' wall tent from Beckel Canvas Products in Oregon. The wall tent is over 25 years old and the only damage is where a bear tore through the door end. The TT Tent is perfect for two guys horseback. High quality stuff. Here is the link. Worth a look.

    I have a Davis tent and like it. I do have to admitt that it got tore up last year but the wind was over 50mph and I think a couple stakes probably worked lose in the sandy ground and let things get out of control.

    The TT Tent is the 10'x10'. I had a small (12"x12") wood stove built just for it and the 4" stove pipe nest inside (9') by a friend in Nampa who used to run a sheet metal shop. For two fellas with two pack horses it works really well and is comfortable if you want to stay in one spot for a week or so. The tent poles and stove can fit on one side of a pack horse so there is a bag and a half for all the other stuff.

    I'm a Davis guy also...have had one for 20+ years and another for 5+ years. If you take care of the tent, they will last multiple lifetimes.

    I horse pack through out the summer and help a local packer with their larger parties of people. Montana canvas is hard to beat. He's got some over 20 years old. Lots of reinforcements in the right places especially the ridge and side wall grommets. Look at their web site. I own a 12x17x 5' side wall tent with doors at both ends. No floor. Its made of Relite material and weighs 28 lb. Just as durable as canvas maybe more. @ $1200. I take along sections of indoor/outdoor light weight carpet for the floor. I sewed Velcro at the edges to put them all together. Pretty slick deal.
