I found this bag in a new bus I bought. Just wondering if anybody recognizes it? It has a reinforcement in the bottom so I'm assuming it is for poles? It doesn't match the westy tent I have, but I don't have any bags for that so I'm probably going to use this one. Roughly 49" x 18".

I haven't set it up yet! I got it 2 weeks ago from a friend and it's winter here. It really bums me out!

I am missing tent stakes and ropes yet, but I'm sure I can make some up. I might set it up in my garage soon.

I bet you will find the stake bag, they also came in random colors including stripes. Mine is the small yellow bag in my picture above. Should have more or less all these pieces for the tent set up.

I bought my tent seperate from the bus, just happened to find that when cleaning it out. I'm missing the (4?) poles for holding the flap open and all the stakes and ropes. I'd love to get some originals, but I'll just probably make them. Thank you for the photos, I cant wait to get this thing set up.

I thought Iíd share my latest side tent find. Saw an ad on Craigslist for it and it looked pretty good in the pictures so I though I better go check it out. Glad I did. This tent is like brand new. Itís the second like new tent Iíve found on CL. They are so nice that I have yet to use them and only put them up once in the living room. Some of the photos donít show the color as vibrant as it is but itís in perfect condition. I posted the other one on here a while back but here is the new one.

Pictures arenít great but trying to show details of the condition. Itís missing a few stakes and I can tell itís been moved around because the bag shows wear and the poles are just a little chipped up but otherwise the tent itself could not be nicer. The date stamp on it says 1969. Not sure what year my other one is but Iíll have to take a look and see.
I love these tents. I have another tent we actually use (its a nice one but not like these) and I bring it on our longer trips when we stay in one spot for more than a day. They work so well with the bus and a family. Especially when it rains or youíre in a crowded campground and want a bit more private space.
Very Happy

Thats a very common pattern that several makers copied - including Westfalia. Post up what poles you can't figure out.

I swear the measurements are in one of the owners manuals, but haven't found them. I did find this info: The floor is 6'6" by 9'8" at this site:
