The Cowboy Tipi (formerly The Colorado Range Tent) has been in our catalog since 1908 and was featured in the Popular Mechanics Magazine. Its proven design is the continued choice of the working ranch cowboy and is quickly gaining popularity among camping enthusiasts and glampers alike. The Cowboy Tipi is quick and easy to setup and has proven to be excellent shelter in bad weather. The Cowboy Tipi can be supported with an external pole set or the peak can be hung from a tree limb.

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.
