    If there was ever a bell tent made for glamping this is it. The Sibley 500 Ultimate is the only bell tent with a built-in vestibule! An enormous front door opens wide and ties back neatly for expansive views and easy access. The breathable and waterproof Classic Canvas (320 gr/m² or 9.5 oz/yd²) is attached to the robust bathtub style groundsheet with a heavy duty size 10 zipper. The side walls roll up, but the gigantic entrance provides all the airflow you could need. This tent pairs well sipping a cold pint under the covered porch and watching the sunrise in a real bed from the comfort of your tent.

    Standard/Deluxe/Ultimate/Pro(Tech)

    The 500 is ideal for 4 glampers on queen beds or as many as 8 campers on sleeping pads.

    We took the classic bell tent design and packed it with features focusing on ease of use, comfort, style, and versatility. The Ultimate checks all the boxes for family camping, luxury camps, casual glamping, festivals, garden parties, car camping, back yard lounging, and 3 season use.

    The rip-stop, water and vapor impermeable groundsheet attaches to the tent with a burly size 10 zipper that runs a full 360 degrees around the perimeter. Giving you the ability to roll up the canvas side walls and let the breeze in, or remove the floor completely for transport, cleaning, storage, or to feel the grass between your toes!

    bell tent with integrated capony

    Door with a canopy

    The Sibley 500 Ultimate Living is the only bell tent in the world with awning. With a height of 230 cm the extra wide door is very accessible and you can easily enjoy the surroundings from your tent even without rolling up the side walls.

    pro zipper ground sheet sibley canvas tent

    Roll Up Side Walls and Zipper Groundsheet

    Our Ultimate groundsheets attach to the tent with a zipper and are made of durable, thermally welded, PVC (540 gr/m² or 15.93 oz/yd²). Completely water and vapor impenetrable, the ‘bathtub style’ floor rises 4 inches high to keep you dry even in standing water. Using a heavy duty size 10 zipper to attach the sidewall to the groundsheet, you can unzip the floor to roll up the canvas walls for maximum ventilation, or remove the groundsheet entirely for transport, storage, cleaning, or to enjoy the grass or sand beneath your feet. A tail gate style system of secure hooks and loops allows you to drop the bathtub wall near the door and peg it flat to prevent tripping and facilitate easy cleaning. A small gap between the two zippers in the back allows an electrical cord to enter the tent without compromising protection from rain and bugs.

    durable guy lines canvas tent

    Durable Guy Lines and Tensioners

    Our Ultimate series comes with 3mm guy ropes that will need to be tied on before your first pitch. Check out our assembly instructions at the top of this page to get a feel for the initial set up process. Our Pro Series comes with pre-attached guy lines and tensioners for those customers looking for an out-of-the-box set up. Plastic tensioners prevent edges from cutting into the guy lines and prolong the life of your tent.

    steel stakes and pegs canvas tent

    Standard Stakes and Pegs

    The Standard stakes and pegs are designed for easy insertion and removal from average earth, like grass or forest floor. The stakes for the guy lines are curved like a shovel to securely hold tension in the ground, and have a lip at the top to prevent the guy line from slipping off. The pegs for the floor are round to slip through the grommets on the groundsheet, and have a hook shaped top and hold the floor in place. All standard stakes and pegs measure 22cm (8.6 inches). If your application requires the heavy duty stakes for high wind or hard, rocky, or frozen ground, check out our Pro Series.

    3 season cotton canvas bell tent

    Classic Canvas

    Our Classic Canvas (320 gr/m² or 9.5 oz/yd²) on the Ultimate, Deluxe, and Standard series is the perfect balance of performance and breathability. Our proprietary treatment enhances the natural water resistance of canvas, and is excellent protection for moderate climates and casual use. Repairable and retreatable, a properly maintained Classic Canvas tent can last for years. Double stitched, flat-felled roof and side wall seams, seam gussets, and double-layer construction at all stress points create a classic and durable bell tent. For variable climates, four season, or long term use check out our Pro canvas on the Pro and ProTech Series.

    100% Cotton canvas provides a natural waterproofing and breathability. Cotton fibers swell when damp, the tight weave prevents rain from penetrating and the surface tension of moisture drops on the outside combined with the steep angle of the canopy allows water to bead and run off. Moisture held in the air on the inside is still able to escape directly through the fabric, keeping internal humidity low and mitigating condensation.

    Check out our FAQ for more information than you could ever need to know about cotton canvas and proper tent maintenance.

    100% sustainable cotton canvas tent

    100% Cotton Canvas

    Our Sibley canvas is made exclusively from 100% cotton. Cotton is made from the seed hair of this hardy and drought tolerant plant. Sustainable, renewable, and one of the most biodegradable fabrics on earth. Our canvas is a soft, natural, earthy beige that glows inside and out with natural or artificial light. CanvasCamp is the only tent manufacture to carry the official Seal of Cotton®.

    steel spring loaded tent pole

    Spring Loaded Poles

    Internal spring loaded wires guide the pole sections together for quick and easy assembly. The included poles on the Sibley Standard, Deluxe, and Ultimate models are made of durable nickel plated steal. The door poles are 20mm (.79 inch) and the center pole is 28mm (1.1 inches). The center pole has a welded lanyard ring which can be used to hang a chandelier.

    mesh window and ventilation canvas tent

    Windows and Vents

    Every Sibley comes complete with windows and vents covered in no-see-um mesh to keep the bugs out while providing ventilation and airflow. Our half-moon windows have zip up covers to allow you to customize your desired level of ventilation and privacy. Each window is equipped with loop fasteners to neatly hold the covers when the windows are unzipped. The Sibley 500 Ultimate Living has 3 windows and 4 vents.

    canvas tent stove compatibility

    Stove Compatibility

    All CanvasCamp tents are easily adaptable for use with a wood burning tent stove. Proper stove placement is dependent on stove size, tent size, flu exit style, desired temperature, and the environment you intend to camp in. One size fits all, pre-installed stove jacks fail to provide customers with the level of customization necessary to achieve ideal stove placement and maximum utility. To ensure proper placement and ideal efficiency, CanvasCamp offers modular stove jacks (sold separately) that can be easily installed in any cotton canvas bell tent in just a few minutes. Stove jacks are available in a variety of shapes and sizes so you can choose the jack that fits your tent and stove perfectly.

    Read our blog or contact us to learn more about the best stove and placement for your specific application.

    Canvas bell tents are not for use with open fire pits. Fire safety is the responsibility of the user. We encourage you to educate yourself and practice vigilant fire safety. Read our FAQ and blogs to learn more about fire safety. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns at any time. Always check local fire restrictions prior to starting a fire as rules and regulations may change frequently throughout the year. CanvasCamp cannot be held liable for any damage or injury to persons or property resulting from the use or misuse of fire or flammable materials in or around our tents.
