So just a fyi... I have just heard about barebones and some of the other wall tents. I would be using this wall tent for long weekends car camping at the beach or even out for a mountain bike trip. I like the look and advantages of the barebones, but they are pricey. I know there are other wall tents out there, so my question is. Do you treat the canvas once a yr, the smell of mildew, can anyone give me any input on using a wall tent. I guess I'm wanting to do some glamping here in NC.
