              Vagabond or family tent??

              I have a 'Vagabond' that is 10x14. Is this a special order?? I have never used it and it looks like only used once.

              I was happy to find such a high quality tent being made locally during my search for a new tent. It's very well made, and I expect this tent will last me a long time.

              Vagabond tent, storm fly, and ground tarp.

              Thank you Springbar! Great customer service and fast delivery time. You answered all my questions so that I could pick the right tent. More importantly you cut into your production schedule to make my pole bag once I let you know I did not receive one. I have told people about your company and stress that they look at your tents.

              I cannot wait to use it. The quality of the tent is A1 and I know you are there from a customer service standpoint.

              I'm quite pleased.

              I'm very satisfied that the delivery arrived well and the product was safely delivered.
              I'm willing to buy it again next time.
              Thank you.
              Have a nice day :)
