Our Johnny Tent has been in our catalog since the early 1900’s and we recently brought it back into production, with some improvements.  Made using the same tried and true techniques of our Colorado Tent, the Johnny Tent comes standard with 2 half moon windows on the sides, a triangle window on the back, and a skylight on the top for added light and stargazing at night!  The front has a zipper opening for easy access.  Each of the side windows has an interior canvas flap for privacy. 

The Johnny Tent comes standard with a vinyl clip-in floor and is 4’x4’ with a 7’ entrance and 6’ back wall.

Assembly Instructions & Helpful Hints


We do not recommend that you waterproof your tent. Canvas allows our tents to “breathe”. If waterproofing products are applied, it will seal the tent up like paint.  If your tent can no longer breathe, condensation will become a problem, especially if using a stove.

First time in rain/moisture:

The seams of a new tent often leak the first time they are subjected to moisture.  It will take a few exposures/soakings to shrink the needle holes tightly against the thread.  To minimize this possible leakage, we advise customers set up new tents and soak the seams with a hose several times, allowing the tent to dry thoroughly between soakings.  If this procedure is not practical for your situation, we then suggest that you arrange your tent so nothing sits under the seam that may be a problem if it gets wet.  If your tent leaks at a few spots along the seam, you may rub wax or a bar of Ivory soap to fill the stitch holes.  If you apply waterproofing, do so only in the places where it leaks and do not cover the entire tent.  When an old tent starts leaking in the middle of the fabric, far from the seams, it is time to buy a new tent.


Never store your tent when it is wet or damp. A tent that is stored when still damp will cause mildew.

Mold and mildew

Once mold and mildew appear they can be killed but the stain created is difficult to remove.  We recommend using a mold and mildew cleaner once it appears  If you have extensive damage please call us for additional options.

5-Year Warranty for Manufacturing Defects


Five-year warranty covers manufacturing defects.  It does not cover normal wear and tear or catastrophic events (hail, wind, etc.).  Warranty includes one free repair within the warranty time-period.  We don't expect you to have any issues within this time, but we recommend bringing your tent in before your warranty expires to take advantage of your free repair! 


Warranty applies for temporary use only.  If tent is used as permanent structure, there is a 2-year warranty for manufacturing defects.


In addition to our warranty, we will repair any Colorado Tent Company product forever at a discounted rate.  We routinely repair 20-30+ year-old tents.


If you aren't completely satisfied with your purchase, we will accept unused items for full refund within 30 days of receipt of goods.
