We recommend making awall tent frame from a frame angle/joint kit. Typical frame savings using an angle kit to make a
12x14 tent frame is $200+
16x20 tent frame is $300+.
Detailed angle kit instructions are on the website.
An angle kit is designed to be used with 1" inside diameter, thin walled, electrical conduit (slightly less than 1 1/4 " outside diameter). Conduit is readily available at a local hardware store. Using an angle kit is by far the most economical approach to purchasing an internal frame. Internal frame shipping charges are very high due to the weight and bulk of an internal frame.
We will provide assistance if you have trouble understanding angle kit instructions.
95% of our customers buy an angle kit and make their own frame.

on angle kits.

OUR RECOMMENDATION. The best canvas tent frame to use is the
internal tent frame. It is the quickest and easiest frame to assemble. Most importantly, an internal
wall tent frame has rafters that support your tent roof. All other canvas tent
frames do not have rafters. During rain and snowy conditions, frames without
rafters, water and snow will accumulate in a trough formed in an area just before
the walls. Some tents will tear in this trough area due to weight or start leaking.
I strongly recommend the internal wall tent frame unless weight is a critical
