Q: What are the packed dimensions?
A: It's difficult to say, because some people roll the tent up very tightly, but the tent bag is approximately - 36"W x 18" Diameter and the pole bag 36" L x 4" Diameter.
Q: Being an all season tent, what is the lowest temperatures you have tested them in?
A: We at Competitive Edge have tested them at below zero temperatures and they hold up just fine even with water freezing on the roof. Kodiak canvas may have tested them at even colder temperatures, but once you hit that below zero I'm not sure it makes a difference since freezing is freezing.
Q: How can I order this tent today?
A: Just click on the "Backorder" Button
Q: This item appears to be on back order.? When can it ship if I buy it today?
A: These were just recently restocked, though they are selling out fast.
Q: what is the free accessory that thus comes with?
A: You choose from the drop-down menu, either a Gear Loft, Pocket Organizer, Bag Organizer, or discounted tarp.
Q: Is there a opening to run a power cord into the tent?
A: There is not, however the double zippered doors allow you to easily run a cord through the bottom crack.
Q: Does the Kodiak 6014 have spot for a wood stove pipe to vent out ?
A: It does not and we do not recommending adding one since this tent has walls that all slope inwards and can be problematic in harsh winds with a stove.
Q: Can you put a stove jack for me? how long for 1 person to set up?
A: We don't add stove jacks to the flex bows, but there is a 12x12 tent with a stove jack. Please search our site for model 6170.
Q: If I order this tent today when will it ship out ? I see most of the items ship the same day but did not see that wording on this item. I will need it by Saturday Oct 5. I live in Washington state. Thanks Adam
A: They do ship out same-day and takes 2-3 days to Washington state. Feel free to contact us with any other questions.
Q: Is there a warranty with the tent? On the website I saw one tiny bullet list lifetime warranty, I want to ensure that is for the tent.
Thank you in advance for your time
A: Yes, the lifetime warranty is for the tent.
Q: Do these tents ever go on sale, if you what is the best time to buy?
A: They do go on sale from time to time, but we don't have a recommendation on when the best time to buy is.
Q: Can the vestibule be added later?
A: Yes, you can always add the vestibule later. It is a standalone item that is sold separately. It saves you a couple dollars to order it with the tent, but a lot of people have to budget for these items-they are an investment.
Q: I'm comparing the 6014 Deluxe and the 6041VX (Super Deluxe). I understand that you lose the vents on the 6041VX but you get two added windows. I'm wondering if, when you need just a little ventilation at night, would the vents function better than just unzipping the windows a tiny bit on each side? It seems like the vents could be better if not camping in hot weather?
A: The windows would definitely provide much better ventilation since you can open them up all the way or just a little bit.
Q: I own a glamping business and considering purchasing this tent. How will it perform if left up for several months? I live in Tennessee. We occasionally get downpours of 2-3" of rain but the greater concern is wind that sometimes gusts 40-50 mph.
A: We have several businesses that do a similar thing. It holds up very well in rain and we have tested it in guests up to 40 miles per our and it held up just fine. That is the highest wind rating we have tested it at though. Many businesses that purchase these tents will often put them on a wooden base and sometimes will even cover the tent with another canopy to prolong the life of the tent since the UV rays will eventually get the better of it if it is left out for a solid year for example. Feel free to contact us with any other questions.
Q: Were looking at purchasing one of your tents and would really like to know someone like us that has a budget for my family. What's the true difference between the basic and deluxe and if it is worth spending the extra money? Thanks
A: on 6014 Q: Were looking at purchasing one of your tents and would really like to know someone like us that has a budget for my family. What's the true difference between the basic and deluxe and if it is worth spending the extra money? Thanks A: The main difference between the basic and the deluxe is the windows, the 6044 basic has 2, one on front and one on back, but none on the doors. The 6014 deluxe adds on windows to the doors, and vents on the sides as well. In addition, the Deluxe includes a gear loft to hang from the ceiling, a pocket organizer, and a bag organizer. It also has a deluxe storage bag. The Super deluxe has triangular windows on the sides as well. Currently the 6041VX Super deluxe is only $10 more than the Deluxe, so if you were thinking of going with the deluxe, then definitely go with the super deluxe.

Q: How for up does the vinyl floor extends? Can this tent withstand some amount of flooding?
A: The floor does come up about 2 inches. However, the tent is not designed to withstand flooding. Standing water outside the tent should not, but flooding may be a bit much for the tent.
Q: Why would one choose the Deluxe 6041VX 10X14 tent over the 6041 10X14 Deluxe tent? The only difference is VX model has side windows and the other doesn't? Why would one select one over the other? What are the advantages and disadvantage between the two models. I am looking at both and cant decide between the two
A: The number of windows is the main difference, they give you extra Ventilation, extra openness and a better view. The extra windows allow you to open up the tent even more and regulate airflow and temperature better.
Q: What is the difference between the basic model and the deluxe model?
A: In the description please scroll down and you will see a comparison chart that shows the difference between the models. Basically, the deluxe model has two extra windows, a gear loft, a nicer storage bag, and extra gear pockets. It also has airflow vents that the basic model lacks.

Q: Does this tent have a stove jack can it be used as a hot tent ? 70x60
A: A few people have installed stove Jacks in a Flex-Bow tent, however precautions need to be taken. Such as installing a larger piece of fire retardant canvas around the stove pipe and jack.
The cotton canvas used with the Flex-Bow is usually lighter and not the same type of canvas as used with other canvas tents, which are often treated with fire retardants and other types of water proofing. Canvas tents that have stoves and jacks the tents are usually made from heavier canvas that's won't easily catch fire and have problem due to a hot stove pipe.
A: For liability purposes, we do not recommend bringing a stove inside the tent.

A: The privacy vestibule is an optional accessory that gives you a little bit of privacy outside the tent under the awning.
Q: Are the vents on the ceiling able to be closed? Is there a zipper that allows you to close them so dust cannot get in?
A: Yes, is it closes up completely so dust cannot get in.
Q: I am wrestling between the 10 X 14 deluxe and the 10 X 10 deluxe. How much more difficult is it to put up the 10 X 14 vs. the 10 x 10? Is the additional weight much of a factor?
A: There is no difference whatsoever in the difficulty of setting them up. There is no advantage with one or the other with the exception of the 10 x 10 being slightly lighter to carry to the destination where you are going to put it up. Feel free to contact us with any other questions.
Q: Is the ground tarp separate? If I choose not to get the ground tarp is there still a bottom or "floor" on the tent?
A: The ground tarp is separate. If you choose not to get the ground tarp the tent still does have a floor. It is a very nice floor, in fact. The tarp is just an extra layer of protection.
Q: Could I I purchase extra rods ? thank you.
A: They are available, but you will need to call that order in at 801-726-0243.
Q: Should I get a rain fly for this?
A: This is already waterproof out-of-the-box. No need to get a rain fly. Sometimes customers that are keeping it out for long extended periods of time (not recommended) will cover it with some type of rain fly or pop up awning to protect it from long exposure to the sun.
Q: Are there tubes that slide in the tent that holds it up and in place?
A: I'm not quite sure I understand the question 100%. There are flexible rods that hold the roof up and then there are upright poles that hold those up. The flex rods do slide through sleeves. The upright poles do not slide through any sleeves. They connect to the roof and the pin on the ground part of the tent.
Q: What does it mean when you say "Flex Bow" canvas tents?
A: Flexible refers to the technology that holds the roof as one solid piece-the rods are not just straight-they flex or bow slightly.
Q: Is there a rain fly available for this?
A: Your response avoided the question. A previous question asked about a rain fly - the response to THAT question was more complete, saying a fly is not required for waterproofing, but some folks use one to protect the canvas from long exposure to the sun.
THIS question just asked if a rain fly were available. Since you didn't answer that question, I'm guessing the answer is no.
I understand, Kodiak thinks a fly is unnecessary. I happen to like a fly, both to protect the canvas, and to provide an insulating layer of air to help keep the tent cooler in hot weather. I guess folks like me will have to make our own.
A: It does not need a rain fly, it is watertight. Not having a rain fly also makes exiting quieter when the wind blows, which is nice.
Q: is there a kit , so a wood burning stove can be added?
A: For liability purposes there is not I'm sorry.
Q: Why your price is lower than the Kodiak Canvas? Are you selling the same tents? What is the difference? Are your tents new? Can you e-mail me the lowest price you would consider in an Offer.
A: These are brand-new, unused, unopened, and we ship them directly from the manufacturer Kodiak.
Q: What's the overall total weight?
A: Approximately 82 pounds.
Q: What's the overall total weight?
A: The overall weight is 82 pounds.
Q: Where is this tent made? USA or Peoples Republic of CHINA?
A: These tents are made in China.
Q: Can I fit more than 8 people into this tent if two of us share a sleeping bag?
A: I am sure you can fit more than 8 if everyone was smaller and not taking up much space in sleeping. The opposite would also be true. If people were occupying a lot of space, you would not be able to fit 8 people. A better way to possibly get at an answer to this question is to look at the square footage and layout of the tent and map out where each person would be sleeping and how much space they would be occupying. That will give you an idea of the occupancy you would be able to reach.
