Pitch Instructions:

For detailed pitching instructions please read our detailed Pitch Instructions.


For detailed instructions on how to seal your Tipi, including detailed photos, read Tipi Seam Sealing Step by Step Guide

For best results we recommend seam-sealing your tent.  You can do it at home or have us do it for you (adds up to one week)(if we seal the shelter it will be shipped without extra tubes of sealant):

To learn how to seal your shelter the correct way, read our Seam Sealing Instructions.

Seam Sealing Service

  • The 16 Person includes enough to seal the entire tipi with a tube left over.  
  • Seal the outside seams, but do it from the inside - pitching the tipi inside out allows you to reach all of the seams.  
  • The easy way to seal is to run a thin bead of sealant along the seam, then press it in with a finger, wiping the excess on a paper towel.
  • Alternatively, you can use an acid brush from a hardware store to spread the sealant.



Intro to Hot Tents:

The most common questions we get about hot tents are:

  • How do you not burn the tent down?  
    • The stove jack is a high temp fiberglass material rated to several thousand degrees.  The tent material never touches the hot pipe.  You can get pinholes from floating embers, but a small dab of silicone seals the pinhole and doesn't hurt the shelter.
  • How does a floorless shelter work in wet weather?
    • Really darn well.  Don't pitch in a depression obviously, but the ground inside dries out quickly, and it's super convenient to just walk in with muddy shoes (or dogs) and not worry about getting your floor dirty.
  • What about condensation?
  • What about carbon monoxide?
    • It's truly not a concern.  We include a peak vent, plus the shelter will draw air through the zipper and under the sod skirt.  If you're still concerned, leave a door unzipped 8" or so at the bottom to allow more venting.

    16 man tipi: 6 degree overnight adventure

    Posted by Michael Smith on 7th Jan 2018

    My son and I enjoyed an overnight adventure in the 16 man tipi. It was my first time setting up the tent, so I kinda winged it. It set up pretty well and was very spacious inside. The first night, I used the SeekOutside XL titanium stove and a Big Buddy heater as a backup heat source. It got down to 6 degrees outside and was on average about 60 degrees inside the tent. During the day, it got up to about 75 inside and was comfy cozy.
    The second night I kept it pitched, I swapped stoves to compare with a Four Dog titanium woodstove to handle larger logs. It got between 60 (2 ft above ground) and 70 (standing) with the fire blazing. The tent handled light winds well and was guy lined off at 6 spots just to be on the safe side. My son liked it so much he asked if we can sleep in the tent again sometime.

    I purchased this larger tent to host group outings or to fit the whole family in and still have plenty of room for chairs and gear.
