Homecamp Tipi Tent – Sand – 3.5m
Now on pre-order! Shipping September.
Back by popular demand and due to ship this coming September, our canvas Tipis are now available on pre-order. We have very limited quantities so we recommend buying now. A true 3-4 person tent our Tipi/Laavu style canvas tent is perfect for a couple with plenty of room left for gear and a wood fire stove or for up to 4 people on single mattresses.
Light and tough canvas
We have used a specially woven canvas that is lightweight but extremely robust. This canvas is naturally UV, mildew and water resistant. We have also double-stitched the seams, gussets, and all stress points for extra durability.
Ezy Pitch system
The Tipi Tent incorporates our Ezy Pitch system which means your tent can be set up in 10 minutes or less. Simply peg in the groundsheet and walk in the centre pole, attach the adjustable webbing loops to the pegs, pull the webbing tight and you are set to go. There are extra guy ropes that can be pegged down if you are expecting stormy weather but these are usually not necessary.
The Tipi tent has two doors opposite each other, both with separate mesh screens which can be zipped into place to keep bugs out and the breeze flowing. The canvas outer doors can be unzipped from top-down or bottom-up so that it’s possible to unzip sections of the door to let in light and ventilate the tent, but still maintain privacy. The door zips are protected by a storm flap.
Keep the breeze flowing
Having two doors means that you can take advantage of a cross breeze and the tent has the ultimate ventilated system with different configurations – i.e. one door open, the other door half open to let the airflow. The doors can be extended and open out across two sections and once rolled up it is held neatly in place by a loop and toggle system. The floor can be unzipped to let even more airflow through the tent.
We use a 500 GSM ripstop PVC groundsheet that is completely waterproof and seam-sealed to create a bathtub-type floor that will serve you well in wet conditions. As the floor can be unzipped from the canvas walls, it’s possible to just use the outer shell as a shade structure (could make a great beach shelter) and leave the floor at home. This is also a handy feature to make cleaning your floor easy.
Built to hot tent
Our canvas is a flame-resistant fabric and certified by OEKO-TEX® and EU Ecolabel. With the right precautions and configuration (doors opened and extended), this tent is suitable for a hot tent set up – we recommend a medium-sized Winnerwell stove for this sized tent.
We use hard anodized aluminium poles, they are lightweight but incredibly durable. We use custom-made reflective 440 Paracord guy rope with easy-to-use metal tensioners that will not break The tent comes with a set of heavy-duty twisted ‘rebar’ style stakes that do not bend if they encounter a rock. We use stainless steel D rings for the groundsheet pegs and signature, custom-made Homecamp plastic buckles and toggles. Our mosquito mesh is heavy-duty. We have designed oversized, fit-for-purpose canvas bags for your tent, pegs and poles. There is an internal pocket for safe storage of valuables such as car keys and wallet.
We do all of this because we dislike seeing products break and the wasteful ‘return and replace’ cycle of inferior products that creates landfills. Like the rest of our range, this tent is built to last.

The perfect small tent, manageable and simple to erect. The tent was used for the first time on 29th September, my daughter, three children and me all slept well.
I am missing one guy rope however, could you send me one please.
This is the third Homecamp tent the family has purchased - an original 4m Flinders in sand for our son, an Under Sky Mesh 4m with blue floor for our daughter, and now for just the two of us, a 3.5m Tipi in sand. The Tipi is well designed, well made and compact - making it the best yet! And that’s saying a lot.
Being a sailor, my only other comment would be to improve the knots which are only loosely formed by the manufacturer. They need to be a real bowline attaching each guy rope to the tent, and a figure-of-eight knot at the end of each guy rope - both to be tightly formed.
