The OZtrail 12x15 Canvas Cabin Tent is perfect to take on your next family camping or outdoor holiday. Sleeping up to 12 people, this family camping tent has a 2-room design that can be turned into three rooms by using the included removable hanging room-divider, making it ideal for all-weather family camping trips. This tent provides plenty of head and shoulder room as well as large gusseted windows so you and your family will feel comfortable at all times. The extended large front-awning is great for cooking and shelter from the elements, and can be added to by using the 3-in-1 sunroom and vinyl floor (sold separately).
This Canvas Cabin Tent is made from SatProof Canvas, a blended cotton canvas that is used in a variety of material weights depending on the design requirements. The SatProof Canvas creates a waterproof canvas that minimises condensation build up, while the structure of cotton allows water vapour molecules to pass through and at the same time provides a barrier to water droplets, creating great ventilation. The roof fabric of your OZtrail Canvas Cabin is rolled under pressure to accept a silver coating that blocks out more than 98% of UV radiation and heat; the technology used in this protective coating has been developed to provide a level of finish never before seen in a canvas product. The anti-mildew waterproofing agent is saturated throughout the canvas before manufacture in order to provide a waterproof barrier even after wear and tear.
Conditioning Your Canvas
It is vitally important that you season your canvas when it's new and also after long periods of storage so it can give the best possible performance. Simply pitch your tent or swag and wet it down with a garden hose. This enables the stitching holes to shrink around the thread of the stitch lines and the cotton in the canvas to swell. Let the canvas dry completely before repeating this two or three times.
Tips and Traditional First-Aid for Canvas Products
Even though you may have seasoned your canvas, sometimes you can miss a spot or a seam. An age-old remedy if this happens: carry a clear wax candle with you when you go camping. If you notice a seam that has not been seasoned properly, simply rub the candle on the exterior of the stitch line. This will create a waterproof barrier quickly and easily. If cared for correctly, your OZtrail Canvas Cabin Tent will still be around for the next generation of campers to enjoy.

Reviews of OZtrail 12x15 Canvas Cabin Tent
OZtrail 12x15 Canvas Cabin Tent(5) By: Anne jeremy on 3 August 2017Actually I was looking at this site for something else (part) for my family's 'Oztrail' 12 X 15 canvas cabin tent, and thought why not give a review about this tent if it helps any would be purchasers. Firstly, we have proudly owned our tent since 2007, having at the time gone for a tent, because it served as an affordable way of getting into the outdoor camping scene. We have thus enjoyed much usage over the years, camping on the beach; in the bush etc. with Mum. Dad, and 6 kids! I think what has contributed so far to the tent's good longevity is that often when camping in a location for a few days, we put an additional tarp over our tent/campsite. This serves a few purposes, as better protecting our tent from the elements (although fine to use without - for quick stays, we haven't always put tarp up, and have never experienced any water/rain getting in!). The tarp (which we have lighter aluminium poles for specifically), also provides good outdoor livability /cooking cover. The tarp cover, which we allow an air gap in between it and tent, just better cools the inside of the tent in those hot summers. (just a thought!). Anyway, this very durable canvas tent, which over the years, we have also added a canvas sunroom to, is also well ventilated with generous big windows, fly-screened with strong mesh to keep the crawlies at their rightful distance. I also like it that you can fully stand up in this tent/move around with great ease. The two rooms of this tent can be separated/or opened with the internal zipped doors to create privacy when needed, or when opened, allow great flow of air through as warranted.. When cold, this tent for us provides a nice cosy feel, its added heavy steel pole construction giving good structural stability. On one occasion, we were suddenly faced with a serious enough storm coming at us, with lashing winds etc. My husband (a builder/draftsman) gave the tent some slack/almost semi- collasping it and our tarp, whilst we 'bedded down' securely inside, and we got through extremely well, as with the tent! I concede that putting up and down a tent like this can at first appear daunting, but once you do it a few times; & develop 'your' system, it becomes easy. Whilst poles dismantle, needed for them to be packed in their respective carry bag, the main ones (for a given section say), are also joined by an 'inside of pole' chain/cable, which keeps a section of poles together for easier organisation when erecting/dismantling the tent. (on this point, if an internal chain does break, it is easily fixed anyway, replacement cord easily available). Although we may be looking at eventually getting a caravan, we will always keep our Oztrail Canvas tent for situations where we can't easily take a van. Certainly, a good tent like this, is much cheaper for a family starting off in camping to acquire, saving money for other desired camping equipment e.g. 12 volt fridge, batteries, lighting, cooking gear; sleeping etc. Currently, I am looking at replacing one internal floor pole, (which has become squished in one section over time) & which Oztrail appear to stock as a spare parts product. (so that is handy to also know!). Anyway, I hope this review might help another in their purchase or not of this tent. For us, it was one of the best purchases we have ever made. Because of it, we have probably saved ourselves many 1000's of dollars in not having to go to expensive accommodation (there is a big difference even staying in caravan parks, between the cost of camping sites, and building accommodation!), plus the ability to go into national parks. Once you have this tent anyway, there is a great range now of comfortable sleeping/lighting options that can be added that ensures the tent feels like a second home, but one you can take anywhere! As a precaution, if the canvas becomes wet, and is packed away like this for a period of time, it will succumb to mold. (this is also where we have found the tarp handy, as if raining, we dismantle tent underneath the independently erected tarp, first!). Certainly, if canvas becomes wet, and you need to still pack it up, just re-erect it once home to allow it to fully dry out, before storing). On one occasion one part of our tent did acquire mold which I was though able to get out with the right products for this - just a pain though, plus I needed to weather proof it!) Sorry for my long review. Just hope it helps!
