Is an Alaknak considered an ultralight in the world of wall tents?

The Alaknak should be considered a half wall and roof tent.

Anyone have a good way of storing the tent and poles? Poles are so long they really don't fit into anything. I have my 14x16 Davis wall tent in it's bag just leaning against the wall in the shop. Maybe I'm just OCD with organizing but I hate having several sets of poles and the tent not all in one package.

Iíve seen pole bags that people have made. I just put each length together and wrap them tightly with electrical tape.

I put my poles in a 10" pvc pipe cut a little longer than the rafter poles with caps on ends. I have a 10x12 and a 14x16 Davis tents. Two pieces of pvc mounted on my trailer, one for each tent. Keeps poles separated and a storage year round.

Great idea.👍

That is a good idea. I have two bags for my conduit frame tent
One would be two heavy.
But the pipe would be more durabale.

My other tent is aluminum frame and a quarter of the weight.

What do you guys do for drying out your tent after use?  I have a few spots where it looks like mold is starting.  Are their any treatments for mold?  I do not have a heated shop and dry my tent out in my basement.

check weather report for dry day, set up tent and stove and burn.  As far as treating  maybe a spray bottle with a water and a little bleach.  Spray on lightly, and let it dry.
