Tent cabins

Bob:

Greetings from Endless River Adventures. I am interested in seeing one of your Yurt Domes. If you check our web site you will see we do white water kayak and rafting trips to Ecuador. We have property on the Quijos River and are thinking of developing a custom camp there for our trips.

The property is located in the cloud forest of the Amazon Basin at about 6000 feet. This area is very humid and as you might imagine gets a tremendous amount of rain. I am looking for potentially 7-10 18′-20′ tents that can be set up as cabins. The idea I have is to connect a private bathroom with an outdoor shower to each tent.

The questions I have for you are;

Has anyone used your tents in a jungle environment?
Can the tent be attached to a platform?
Are the tents or can the tents be fitted with screening for bugs?
I noticed that some folks talked about the tents getting hot, can you give me any feed back on the solution for that problem?
Do you have any tents in our area that we can look at. Or do you have a demo that you could send to us that we can set up and get a better idea of what it looks like?
Do the tents come in any other colors? Given the area we are planning to use the tent in, green would be great!

I am excited to see one of your tents. Feel free to contact me via phone or email.

Sincerely.
Ken Kastorff

Hi Ken

Sounds like a great project.

Has anyone used your tents in a jungle environment?

Yes, I am not sure if we have a posted testimonial: https://shelter-systems.com/yurt-dome-testimonials.html

Can the tent be attached to a platform?

Yes: https://shelter-systems.com/lighthouse-manual.html

Are the tents or can the tents be fitted with screening for bugs?

We offer net doors and velcro: https://shelter-systems.com/accessories.html

I noticed that some folks talked about the tents getting hot, can you give me any feed back on the solution for that problem?

Shade is essential if you are not in the shade then get or make sun shades: https://shelter-systems.com/accessories.html

Air flow is important: set and use upper vents: https://shelter-systems.com/lighthouse-manual.html Keep the 4 doors open; use porches over doors so they can be open in the rain. We offer porches or you can make your own: https://shelter-systems.com/accessories.html

Do you have any tents in our area that we can look at.

We cannot give out customer information.

Or do you have a demo that you could send to us that we can set up and get a better idea of what it looks like?

We do not have demos.

Do the tents come in any other colors? Given the area we are planning to use the tent in, green would be great!

No, colored tents tend to be oppressive and effect the color sensitive pigments in the eye. White transmits the most light making for a bright interior. I do understand the desire to blead in. Perhaps you could shade the domes with thatch.
