This canvas wall tent mansion from Cabela's is really big. But if you're setting up camp for an extended period of time and not carrying it in for miles, it's perfect.

Cabela's Ultimate Alaknak tent is 13 by 27 feet, more spacious than many city apartments, and it's even equipped with a wood stove jack for cold weather and multi-paneled windows. Heck, that's more than some multi-million dollar high-rise condos can claim!

Could you imagine?

  • 12" steel stakes and guy ropes
  • Large zip-close storage bag
  • 12-person tent

It has 10 heavy-duty poles and Cabela's proprietary tent material, X-treme Tent Cloth, It is rugged, highly water-resistant and has quality tear/puncture strength.

The tent has a ton of cool features, and has two doors, including a screen door, with an awning over the entrance. It has enough capacity to sleep 11 of your closest friends. Add a little camping furniture, and you're golden.

  • Fold-down shelves on the sidewalls have cup holders and gear pockets
  • 5" stove jack in roof with roll-away storm flap for safe use
  • Enhanced safety features and user-friendly updates

The Cabela's Ultimate Alaknak tent makes the ultimate base camp, hunting camp, if you just want plenty of room in your tent or if you have nine kids and want to get away for the weekend. Seriously, this thing is bigger than some living rooms!

Cabela's Alaknak tent has the high-wall design of an outfitter tent made with high-quality materials. The zippered windows are fantastic, and it's also designed to take on any kind of weather. With a T-style door, two interior center poles and exterior tent poles, it can hold steady in high winds.

Cabela's Total Family Tent Mansion

The canvas tent weighs 127 pounds and costs $1,500 at Cabela's. The set up may be a little more involved than you're used to, but it's not as hard as it may seem. The first time might be tough, but it'll only get easier with each camping trip.

This Cabela's tent could be the perfect way to create a portable deer or fishing headquarters this summer. As far as camping tents go, it's the top of the class. Maybe just hire a pack mule to bring it into the backcountry.

Plan that trip to Colorado and grab your sleeping bags. This year's trip is going to beat last year's camping trip thanks to this huge traditional wall tent.
