De Waard Jan Van Gent canvas bell tent - large pyramid-style camping + EXTRAS. Up for sale is our beautiful canvas tent from 90s imported from the Netherlands two years ago in amazing condition for its age.
It doesnt suit our family any more so its time to pass it on and let others enjoy it. Its in excellent condition from one of the worlds best tent makers. Its much like the De Waard Albatros pyramid tent but different in one way in particular - it has two poles at the centre of the canopy, rather than one, for additional standing height in the middle of the tent between living area and sleeping area and adds a greater overall standing area inside, as the walls are a steeper. It hangs up in the sleeping area. The floor is wool and is great for comfort and warmth and soft cotton walls which helps with sound reduction when sleeping at night, handy if youre on a noisier campsite.It also comes with an additional rubber mat thats cut to size and perfectly fits the lounge area which evens out the bumps and stones if your pitch isnt perfect and adds warmth under foot. Also included are modular awnings that can be zipped together in various configurations for rain and sun protection and creating an extra seating or covered storage space outside. See from the pictures you can have an upper awning and side protection. It comes with all the poles - very sturdy and fit together well. It comes with a canvas storage rack that hangs floor to ceiling inside with bespoke hooks, for putting your things in, plus another accessory - a clever coat hanger rail, that looks a bit like a bike d-lock, with hooks that attaches to onto of the main central poles.
Everything is original De Waard apart from the rubber main area flooring. All bits and bobs like pegs, rubber hooks, rain caps for the poles are present and stored in the original green canvas bag. The poles and tent inner are stored in their own camel-coloured canvas bags and the main tent fits nicely into an old Dutch canvas army bag with shoulder and hand straps for carrying.
Everything wraps up nicely but beware - this isnt a tent to take backpacking, the whole package is heavy but each item is carryable. De Waard has sadly just gone bankrupt so even though this model is no longer being made, there will be no more new tents from the company and the value of these vintage tents will only rise in price if looked after in the coming years.
Excellent in the summer as the canvas and clever ventilation system keeps things cool, and retains warmth in the winter with its woollen floors, thick canvas walls and solid frame construction.
