  1. Tater 1973, I didn't want to get off track, but here's something else to think about.

    As far as ease of setup, the tipi style is really quick and easy. We ended up getting a 12-man tipi and it has really spoiled me. I love it for quick setup, maybe 10 minutes. And everything is lightweight. It's just one center pole, and 24 perimeter stakes. It takes the wind a lot better than the wall tent too.

  2. Tater 1973, You can set it up by yourself without too much difficulty. it's on of those things you get better at after doing it a time or two. I usually have my wife helping. I watched a video on Davis' website to see the recommended method. Basically assemble the roof frame, roll the canvas over, then get the legs in the frame, than stake it all down. I usually get it done in 30 minutes or so. Some people are faster, I'm not rushing. Shane
  3. MontanaMarine - thanks for the insight. Davis recommends the 12x14 because 75% iof the time I will be using the tent solo or with one other person. How is set up by yourself? I know the 14x16 would allow a little more room but worried that set up would suck doing it alone. Thanks in advance, Joe K
