Kodiak Canvas Tent 12×9 With Awning

Kodiak Canvas Tent

Second Chance to Review

If you’re not new to Go Together Go Far, or our YouTube Channel, you’ll know that we occasionally do non-RV equipment reviews. We’ve talked about this Kodiak Canvas Tent on a prior occasion.

When we first started our YouTube Channel, we did a video on how to set it up. It was an early video, and I learned about the video process. This type of canvas tent is very popular, and I thought the topic was worth revisiting.

    Kodiak Canvas Tent 12x9 with awning and sidewalls

    The opportunity to show this tent presented itself on a group camping trip in July. I didn’t want to miss the chance to show this tent in use and not just the setup. We were camping for four days at Moutardier Campground at Nolin Lake. We had a great spot, and we’ll review it shortly.

    The significant advantage of this Kodiak Canvas tent is the ability to have two rooms. Like all tents, for example, the most critical place is the sleeping area. Here they were able to set up two inflatable adult mattresses, and kid’s cot, AND a dog bed. There was still enough room for storage, fans, and space to walk. Not bad. There was enough headroom to make sure you didn’t need to hunch over all the time.

    A window unit AC had even been hooked up outside to pump cool air in!

    Awning or Kitchen?

    As roomy as the sleeping area is, the area under the awning is what made this tent shine. In this setup, the optional sidewalls had been attached to the awning so that it became an enclosed room. Perfect for a camp kitchen.

    To complete the camp kitchen, there where a few DIY items added. For instance, there is always an assortment of coolers and DIY food storage containers in the kitchen. In this case, the Kodiak Canvas tent had hooks that allowed pegboard to attache the usually soft walls. The pegboard enables kitchen essentials to hang up and fully utilize the space available. See the picture below.

    If you haven’t seen the full YouTube video yet, check it out here. It is hard to do the tent justice with just pictures. This Kodiak Canvas tent is a step above other tents I’ve seen. If you’re wanting to break into camping, and not ready to throw down the cash for an RV, maybe this is an excellent option to get started. Above all, with the right accessories, the tent is just as lovely as almost any camper.

      Andy and his wife Niki had their twins Adilynn and Archer, in 2014. By 2017 the whole family was camping. It is a great way to unplug from the daily grind and focus on what it means to be a family. They started a YouTube channel in early 2020 and enjoyed creating content that new RVers find useful.
