Our Gold Miner’s Pyramid tent
, sometimes called a Pyramid or Ranger’s tent, uses two outside poles to replicate an 1860’s cattle drive tent. Outside poles provide open space inside. For faster setup, use one, two, or four inside poles, as the miners did during the 1849 Gold Rush. They were in a hurry to get rich quick! The tent is made in two popular sizes: 9 x 9 x 9’ high, and 12 x 12 x 10’ high. Both have 12” sod cloth on inside edges. The door overlaps 12” with ties along the edges. Instructions for set up are included.
The Gold Rush Miner's Pyramid tent is offered in three different canvas options; water repellent, marine finished, and flame resistant canvas.Marine Finished Sunforger Cotton Duck
