We got Baker Tent mark two up today, one we made for our distributer, Kevin Ruston from Wynnchester Camp and Adventure, still the only one selling the Wild Canvas brand in the UK, except us of course.
We introduced some upgrades to the Baker tent design, like the pole pockets and some different fastenings, but the main thing is that when it rained, the rain was collecting on the porch roof as the porch needed to be the same height as the main tent section, because the side walls double up as doors for the inner tent.
We love it when something does two things and it keeps it versatile: the wall uses the same toggle system, so the wall cord loops can be tied up both places (to the tent or to the porch sides). The toggles allow one to open the wall with one hand, which is nice when you have a torch at night etc.
Mark 2, has the added feature of jointed front poles, allowing 2 heights, so that the roof can be slanted to allow the rain to shed either side and the wall is simply folded up when lower.
Anyway, the nice thing about this mk 2 is……
And here it is in its full glory, Slanty!
