Product FAQs

Life InTents Product FAQs

ARE BELL TENTS EASY TO PUT UP?

Due to their simple design of two poles and multiple pegs, a 6M or smaller bell tent can be put up by one person in under 20 minutes - much easier than a teepee. We have a great article on our resources page that shows this simple setup process. 

HOW DO YOU HEAT A BELL TENT?

Our tents are certified as being fire retardant to help add peace of mind when heating a bell tent.  Many of our models include a built-in stove jack so that you can install a wood stove in our bell tents.  Campers can also consider using a propane or radiant heater.  Remember to always use a fireproof rug and a CO2 monitor. 

HOW DO YOU CLEAN A BELL TENT?

First try to dry-scrub the stain with a clean brush. Next you can try a sponge and a mild soap.  We usually suggest a couple treatments of Iosso Stain Remover to clean tough stains on bell tents.  After cleaning, you may need to apply 303 Fabric Guard to introduce back a protective barrier to your canvas.

WHAT IS THE WIND RATING OF A BELL TENT?

When bell tents are properly set-up, these tents can easily withstand fresh air wind gusts of 50 mph, thanks to their unique shape and structural supports.

HOW LONG WILL A BELL TENT LAST?

A bell tent that is set-up for a few weekly camper adventures per year can easily last 10-20 years (if you don't pack it away wet and retreat it every few years)!  The lifespan of bell tents that are left up for several months at a time will drastically vary.  Factors such as humidity, tent placement, and regular maintenance all play a role.  To extend the life of your tent we highly suggest a fly cover and getting your tent off the ground (via a platform) and exposing the tent to a breeze and sunlight.

ARE BELL TENTS GOOD IN THE SNOW?

Our bell tent can be used in all seasons. The canvas is super durable and weatherproof.  Using a tent in snow requires extra precautions.  A couple of inches of snow on the canvas can add 2,000 pounds of weight to the center pole if left sitting.  Keeping a wood stove heating up the tent during snowfall will encourage the snow to melt off.  Left unattended, snow can cause the center pole to collapse.  

ARE ACCESSORY ITEMS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE?

Yes!  We offer groundsheets, a fly canopy, stoves, awning, green or white chairs and cots, lanterns, rugs, and many more items made of great materials and at fair price in our online store.

DO YOU OFFER USED BELL TENTS FOR SALE?

We publish second hand and clearance bell tents for sale on our website. We also periodically have open boxed tents or repaired tents for sale.  Just ask - you might bet lucky.

WHEN WOULD YOU USE THESE CAMPING TENTS?

Well, whenever you want an outdoor shelter away from home you could come back to these tents after a hike, bring it on a fishing trip, return to shore and sleep after using a canoe or kayak, enjoy some bird watching, or simple relaxation with friends and family. Many clients rent these tents out for Airbnb income, bring them on a camping trip, use them for decorated sleepover garden birthday party or a romantic date night by adding fairy lights.

COULD THESE BE USED FOR BACKPACKING TENTS?

Only if you have a mule to attend the hike with you.  These tents come in large sizes and the canvas and poles make them very heavy - and too large to put in backpack!
