Forgive my ignorance, but would you be able to use a stove in this tent and how would you vent it? I don't intend to go to Mt. Everest - just live in Minnesota. Thank you.

Even though this tent has over 300 sq ft of floor space, it's still not recommended to use a stove, of any kind, in an enclosed area. Any venting, unless sideless or topless would be inadequate. Carbon monoxide can fill the interior space before you realize what's happening.

Marion. I agree with Jeff but many expeditions around the world have cooked in this tent. It is larger and better vented than my last apartment and I cooked in there. Again, not recommended to cook in any tent but this tent is HUGE and it has a roof vent in the center of the tent and 3 doors. So, I'll leave it up to your best judgment and no question is a bad question. Thanks for asking!

Buy a canvas wall tent, then you can have a heated space with a wood stove and you can cook on the stove too. it will also cost you thousands of dollars less and last many more years. there are multiple books on this subject, if you are going to spend thousands on a tent research your best options, which the space station is not for long term livability in minnesota. obviously a wall tent is not what you want to drag into an alpine environment (or probably drag much of anywheret, but for dirtbagging it in minnesota a canvas wall tent fits the bill a yurt might not be a bad option either, but is more permanent and expensive..

Why is the floor seperate from the top of the tent, and does it come with a rain fly that keeps out tons of snow?

Responded on

It is a floorless single wall tent. The tent has storm flaps that can have snow piled on top of them to make a snow-proof seal.

Responded on

You can purchase a floor for this tent separately for several reasons.

If you damage your floor you are only out the cost of the floor, not the whole tent.

Many people who use this tent don't need to use the floor.

The tent is waterproofed, the fly it comes with keeps the vent hole on top from letting in the weather.

Will this tent talk to me and cook my food with the kitchen i hope it comes with?

Responded on

You're right, it's so much more expensive than all of the competing 15 person expedition grade tents out there.

Responded on

No... but, it will keep the wind and sun off of you next time you are spending 3 months at the 17K Everest Basecamp! I would also wager it would out last all those other competing tents as well. They are priced this way for a reason... if the materials we use were less expensive, heavier, and/or not as strong, the tent would be less expensive. The titanium oxide coating on the fabric, the uber-geodesic pole design, and overall strength of the entire package makes this one of the most popular basecamp tents around.
