I want to build a frame for a 14x16 tent and have found a few places for angle pieces but wondering if there are any recommendations for frame parts?

Conduit is alot cheaper than buying an aluminium frame, wall tent shop.com has lots of options for angles, I'd recommend a 4 rafter frame for that size tent

Electrical conduit from Hme Depot is the best way. Fast easy & relatively cheap.

I was thinking today about summer camping. In the wall tent. I have some Battery fans I run during hot months.

But I Was  wondering if leaving the stove jack open and putting some bug screen over it to keep bugs out would aid in cooling? Since heat rises.

Anyone done anything like that?

Since I'm looking at getting a wall tent, figured I would bump this up again.  A lot of good info in here.  I may have missed this in here already, but is it worth getting an aluminum frame over a steal frame?  I won't be packing this tent in, just unloading it from the truck and setting it up so weight isn't that much of a deal.  Didn't know if steel would be better if I'm going to be hanging a bunch of additional things from the frame.

I have two tents . One aluminum frame,one conduit. The conduit frame tent is a better tent with doors both ends and two windows. However I find if I only need one I tend to lean to the aluminum frame just because it is so much lighter and the rafters are two piece. So easier to transport.

Has anyone tried pure peppermint oil to keep mice away from your tent while hunting?

Going to give it a try this year. Boy is that stuff strong.

What do you do with the peppermint oil?  Pour it around the perimeter?
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I haven't tried any deterrent, just traps. Have killed a lot of mice.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

Put a couple drops on cotton balls around out side of tent.

I used chain link fence rails & attachments for my frame which matched my commercial one closely.  Used hole saw to trim ends for welding angle pieces.
