Self Erecting Pop Up Tent - New Design

NEWS: We were excited to have the opportunity to exhibit our tents this year at the OUTDOOR RETAILER SHOW in Salt Lake City from 8/8-8/11/2008. After over a year of design work, we showcased our new patent pending pop up self erecting style tent and it got rave reviews and generated a lot of excitement from visitors at our booth. The show allowed us to show off our newly designed tents and also spotlight the versatility of our tent manufacturing that we have done for the Girl Scouts, US Military, Jack Daniels, Snap-On Tools, Grand Canyon Expeditions, Naturalists at Large and a host of other outfitters, retreat centers, and individual campers. Of course, along with all the work we got to have some fun too. The outdoor industry has a unique casualness and we met a lot of friendly people, attended some great parties at the show and gatherings outside the show. I would recommend doing whatever you can to make your way to the show in the future as you get to see all the new gear and it is always a fun time by all. Hope to see you all there next year! Check out and order our limited offered Pop up Tents.

Here is the much awaited redesign of our pop up self erecting tent. It is much more durable and waterproof than previous self erecting tent designs. It has an unbreakable spring steel frame. We listened to your suggestions and worked on better materials and a new roof design. We are making 4 different model tents. These tents started shipping at the end of November 2008. We are manufacturing limited quantities and you can buy one now at our consumer website. Please leave us a comment if you have some time. See a video of how easy it is to set up and fold our pop up tents at the following links - Setting up the Pinnacle Pop up Tent.

Outstanding Canvas Tents

I headed the committee that purchased twenty Pinnacle tents for our meditation center. We've used tents for a number of years and have lots of experience -- some of it very trying. The last batch of tents we tried barely lasted through the season. That's when we found Pinnacle. We noted numerous benefits in using Pinnacle's #644 tent: larger windows, better zippers (bigger and stronger), heavier floor -- the list goes on. And, the extended rain fly helped keep out the undesirable weather (we get lots of it in New England -- our tents are up from May to September). And, any questions, concerns and the like have been handled quickly and efficiently. It's been a real pleasure to work with Pinnacle.

Thank You to Our Tent Customers - Peru Earthquake Relief

Thanks to all of our tent customers for your patience during our large scale humanitarian earthquake relief effort that we spearheaded in Peru towards the end of 2007. Our entire stock of camping tents was shipped to Peru to help provide temporary housing for the victims of the earthquake. Our customers were very understanding about us being out of stock on tents that they needed and were very patient while our tent factories manufactured more tents for our warehouses. We now have all of our canvas tents, wall tents, cabin tents, canopy tents, and dome tents back in stock and will produce more as needed. Pinnacle Tents thanks you again for all of your support during our involvement in this relief effort.
