Q: We just camped in our new 6133 this weekend, and it did beautifully. We love it! One question though: there is a pin on the base of the tent on the side with the optional awning and door. No pole goes on it, and it isn't necessary for the awning. We can't figure out what it is for! Thanks.
A: I'm not quite sure what you are referring to. Is it a grommet?
Q: What is the difference between the floor liner and the tarp?
A: That is a very good question. The tarp is designed to go underneath the tent for and the floor liners are canvas and designed to go on top of the floor like carpet.
Q: Will the cabin tent without the awning accommodate 2 adults, queen/king size mattress, and some light gear along with a buddy heater?
A: Yes, absolutely, but with a disclaimer that we do not recommend heaters for liability purposes.
Q: Would the privacy vestibule that fits over the 10 x 10 deluxe VX model awning also fit over the small awning of this tent?
A: The vestibules only fits the 10' or 14' flex bow tents.
Q: does this tent have the California warning attached to it ?
A: For California Residents please see Proposition 65
Q: Do you have inside pictures? I don have access to see one and I want to have a good idea of what can fit in it so I have everything figure out by the time I get it. I’m planning to use it with a wood stove an measurement is critic. An inside 360 video would be great!
Please check out our YouTube video of the 6121 and 6133 tents. They are the same except for the deluxe awning. My Coworker Charley, who makes many of these videos will be adding 360 virtual tours when he gets time.
Q: Is the optional free ground tarp the Kodiak canvas 0591 ground tarp ?
A: Yes, that is the free ground tarp.
Q: Are the zippers in the 6121 basic cabin the same as the zippers in the 6133 deluxe model?
A: Yes, the zippers are the same as the 6133 tent. heavy-duty #10 zippers on the doors, and #8 on the Windows.
Q: Can you get it with a stove jack?
A: The 6170 12x12 includes a stove jack. That's the only Kodiak model currently outfitted with a stove jack
Q: What is it’s size and weight when it’s close/folded?
A: It's hard to say since some people roll it up tightly and others loosely, but it's is in two bags. The poles have their own bag and the tent body is in its own bag. The tent body weighs about 39 pounds and is about 30-inches wide x 12-inches in diameter rolled up. The poles weight about 35 pounds and fit in a generously sized bag that's about 36" Tall and 8" in diameter.
Q: If I bought the pole set for the front tarp would they fit in the 3 existing poles of the 6121?
A: I'm sorry, but it would not work, the dimensions are just too far off.
Q: The video shows a large awning. Does this come with the tent? It is not shown in the description?
A: There are two models of basic (6121) and the deluxe (6133). The basic model does not include the larger awning and the deluxe model does include the large awning.
Q: I know the tent weighs 87 lbs. How much do each of the component parts weigh individually (tent canvas, poles, and stakes)?
A: Within the main bag there are 3 different bags, 1 for poles, 1 for stakes, and 1 for the canvas tent. All of the other items can fit inside the main tent bag, or be carried separately. Most customers find that it is easiest to split them up and carry them 1 at a time. Altogether it weighs about 122 lbs, and the dimensions are 41” x 14” x 14”. The heaviest bag is about 50lbs, and the other 2 are a little over half of that.
Q: I'm thinking of using the tent with an RV. I would like to have the tent up against the door of the RV. What are the dimensions of the tent door--height and width? It looks like it's not rectangular and there are two height measurements.
A: I don't know the answer to that, but you could call Ph. 801 508-2880 two find the answer.
Q: Why does it require two adults for setup? I sometimes camp with just my kids and wonder if I will have trouble setting this up on a solo parent trip.
A: One person can set it up, but you simply need to angle the poles during set up and telescope them gradually instead of all at once. Having a second person means they can stabilize the poles while you telescope them all at once as opposed to gradually.
Q: Will the tent accommodate insertion of an extension cord?
A: Yes, it can accommodate an extension cord. There is a small porch in the bottom left of the 12 foot main entrance designed to accommodate an extension cord. It is a small opening that zips open or closed. It simply zips closed around the extension cord or zips completely closed if you are not using any cord. The cabin style tends are the only tenants that have the extension cord opening. Customers still run cords into the other flex bow models, but they simply do through the doors. The doors have dual zippers allowing you to run an extension cord and zipping the door closed around the cord.
Q: Can someone better explain the floor options? Thank you.
A: 1) the tent already comes with a 16 ounce vinyl floor 2) there is a ground tarp that is optional designed to go underneath the tent 3) there is an optional floor liner that is canvas that goes over the already included 16 ounce vinyl floor.
Q: Does tent have a port opening to run an extension cord through ?
A: Yes, the cabin tents do have an opening that zips open and closed allowing for an extension cord.
Q: Can you purchase an awning at a later date that will attach to this tent or is it specific/built in awning just for the $699 model?,
A: It cannot be attached later as it is simply sewn onto the tent on the deluxe model 6133. Feel free to contact us with any other questions.
Q: Can the side screen be replaced with canvas so it will actually serve as a door in in-climate weather? I do not need an extra window, or any windows for that matter. Thanks
A: They cannot be customized through us. They are simply mass-produced as you see them in the picture. Feel free to contact us with any other questions.
Q: Does this tent come with the awning?
A: Yes, it does have the smaller basic awning over the door on the left side. The deluxe model has the 8' x 8.5' attached awning and that is model number 6133. Feel free to contact us with any other questions.
Q: I am interested in the 6121 model. I live in Salt Lake. Do you offer a discount if we pick it up instead of having you mail it out?
A: Yes we do have local pickup discounts.
Q: what is the dimension of the main door opening, H X W ?
A: Which door do you consider the main opening? The largest door is the one shown on the left of the main image on the 9 foot side. I don't have the exact dimensions were, but I am able to fit a queen-size mattress fully inflated through that door. The other door on the right side of the main image is much smaller. It's closer to about 5 feet high by 30 inches wide. They are a little bit forgiving since you can pull them open wider. Some people with wheelchairs can go right in even though there is a slight lip at the bottom.
Q: How does the enclosed room fit to this tent?
A: the model that includes an enclosure option is the deluxe model 6133. This is the basic model, that is the deluxe model.
Q: Have 8 x 8 ft hot tub in the backyard where wind can become bothersome. I would like a canopy tent with enclosure over the hot tub, preferably clear windows but must keep wind out. What do you recommend?
A: Unfortunately, we don't currently have something like that that would work. In the next few weeks we will be selling items made by Shelter Logic and they likely have some type of canopy that might accommodate your needs.
Q: When will it be delivered?
A: The ship out of Salt Lake City Utah and only takes a few days to receive. We ship them FedEx ground.
Q: Can I get a bag for transport of entire unit? (poles stakes tarp etc.)
A: The carry bags on the Kodiak tents are exceptionally large, and usually have seem for everything, and the additional tarp as well. The tent also has a separate pole and stake bag if you wish to carry them separately.
Q: Is this cabin tent as strong as the bow flex tent ... which would be the better tent for living in about 3 months during this summer?
A: Both the cabin, and the Flex bow are made of the same durable material; however most customers find that the flex bow tents are easier to set up than the cabin tents due to the pole design. Personally I would recommend the 6133 for extended use, as it is the largest tent, and provides the most space for gear and things. None of these tents are designed to be used for that long, and keeping it up for more than a month at a time would void the warranty.
Q: Need a 4 person heavy duty tent 6 feet high, 31 pieces in green color suitable for forest camping for export to Ghana. Need your best price?
A: Please send us an email with the shipping address and other details for a detailed quote. [email protected]
Q: Is the front awning an option that can be added later or do you have to buy the tent with awning attached ?
A: Unfortunately, it is not an option that can be chosen later. It sewn onto the tent when you purchase model 6133. That is the only way to get the deluxe awning.
Q: Would like to put a portable A/C in tent. Is there a way to vent outside? Vent is tube and made to vent out of either square or oval shaped opening.
A: You might want to contact the manufacturer regarding that.
Q: Can I attach the front full enclosure to this tent or do I need a different model?
A: This model does not include the deluxe awning and therefore does not accommodate the enclosure. There is nothing to attach it to on this model. You're thinking of model 6133. Feel free to contact us with any other questions.
Q: It says shipping will resume on June 30th. If I order, will you ship out on that day? I have a wedding on July 9th and am hoping I receive it before then. Thanks
A: I think you are fine. You should have it with several days to spare. We will know more as that date gets closer.
Q: Is this Kodiak tent supposed to be shipped with the handy strap-and-cinch storage bag that allows for a convenient roll up?
A: No, the cabin tents do not have a cinch and strap storage bag. They have the Duffel style.
Q: Would this tent fit on a 12x16 wooden tent pad that is raised a half a foot off the ground?
A: If you are able to stake/drill into the platform I don't see why it wouldn't work.
Q: Awning very confusing, as it does not show if you can close that window, or if that awning flap down is the only way for privacy. Can you please explain this? Does that window close from inside the tent the same way the rest of them do?
A: The awning can only be closed from the outside and it also functions as the window cover flap. The window/door beneath the awning can be opened from the inside or outside. All of the other Windows close from the inside.
Q: Do you ship this item to Spain for free?
A: We do not ship to Spain.
Q: Kodiak Canvas Tent 6121 12X9' Cabin 6 Person Camping Tents All-Season?
A: What is your question?
Q: Do all of the windows have a canvas flap to cover in cold weather?
A: Yes, every window has a canvas flap to keep it watertight.
Q: Does it absolutely take two to set it up?
A: It definitely does not require two people to set it up. I have set this up more times by myself than with help. You simply need to telescope the poles incrementally instead of one at a time.
Q: Forget my question... I read your published questions and got my answer. Thanks?
A: It most definitely can be set up by one person.
Q: Will this tent sleep 6 people plus some bags for belongings?
A: Yes, a 6-person tent assumes sleeping space for 6 people plus some gear storage. However, depending on your sleeping arrangements (e.g. cot vs. camp pad sleeping) and the amount of gear you need stored, you may fit more or less people than this. For a better idea of how well you and your family will fit in the tent, please view the layout picture and diagram your space needs.
Q: How many people does it take to put up this tent?
A: This tent can be put up 1 person, but is much easier to put up with at least 2 people.
Q: Will my children be able to help put up this tent?
A: We recommend only adults assist in assembly.
Q: Will this tent hold up in extreme wind and rain?
A: These canvas tents have been tested up to 40 mph though we do not recommend camping in such extreme weather. If the wind gets bad enough regardless of the tent or brand name your poles will simply bend. Replacement parts are available. It does take incredible storms to damage these tents. Nylon tents can be damaged in storms with wind gusts of 20 miles per hour. These are double that or more.
Q: Will this tent keep out all critters?
A: This tent will keep out almost all critters. Be sure to keep the doors it closed. I went camping with a friend who left a small opening only to find a raccoon trapped inside his tent in the middle of the night. Luckily, it was able to find its way out. This does keep out insects, rodents, snakes, etc. The key is to make sure that you zip the tent closed completely.
Q: How fast can this be put up?
A: This can be assembled in about 10 minutes. The first time you assemble it will take closer to 15 or 20 minutes, however. You do not need two people to assemble this, but the first time you assemble it you will be glad to have a second person handy. It also only takes one person to disassemble the tent.
A: 1._ Is the tub of this sown all the way around the tent bottom?
2._How many tie down ropes are on the tent and staking loops are around the bottom?
