|The 500 is ideal for 4 glampers on queen beds or as many as 8 campers on sleeping pads. New for 2018, the Sibley 500 Pro Double Door is the only 500 canvas bell tent with twin A-Frame doors|
Dual A-frame Doors
With twin A-frame doors on opposite sides of the tent, the 500 Double Door Pro is our largest and most accessible Sibley yet! The double doors are ideal for unobstructed views in two directions. The second door allows larger groups or families to enter or exit the tent from either side without disturbing the other half.
The Sibley’s signature A-frame door allows for easy entry and exit, and holds the canvas at 90 degrees from the ground preventing rain from falling into the tent when moving in and out. The floor is equipped with four stirrups which hold the poles of the doors securely in place. The top of the A-frame doors are equipped with a pin that sits in a grommet at the peak of the door ensuring proper placement. A rain cap is then placed over the pin and grommet to keep rain from running down the poles. The canvas door zips together vertically and along the bathtub floor. Each side of the door is equipped with loops and ropes to neatly tie back the canvas and/or mesh doors to hold them open when not in use.
Every Sibley is compatible with a Sibley Connector, a bow-tie shaped attachment that can be used as an awning. A Sibley Connector can also be used as a covered bridge between one of the Double Doors and a second bell tent, allowing you to create a multiple room tent.
Roll Up Side Walls and Zipper Groundsheet: Pro Grade
Our Pro groundsheets attach to the tent with a zipper and are made of are thick, thermally welded, rip-stop PVC (650 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.
Pro Guy Lines and Tensioners
First time set up is a breeze with the Pro’s guy lines which are pre-attached to the tent and threaded through our tensioners. The Pro grade guy lines have been upgraded with corded nylon rope to make adjusting the tension on the line easier. Pro guy lines have are 5mm thick and have an additional UV resistant treatment. Plastic tensioners prevent edges from cutting into the guy lines and prolong the life of your tent.
Pro Stakes and Pegs
Specially designed for high wind or hard and rocky ground, our Pro stakes are made from the same high quality nickel plated steel our poles are made from. CanvasCamp exclusive Pro guy line stakes are 24cm (9.5 inches) angled and serrated to hold up to pounding into frozen or rocky round. A T shaped hook is welded securely to the stop to prevent guy lines from slipping off even in high wind. Pro groundsheet pegs are 50% thicker than standard pegs. 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.
Pro Spring Loaded Poles
The poles on the Pro series have been beefed up from the standard poles included with the Standard, Deluxe, and Ultimate Series. Pro door poles are 23mm (.91 inch) and the center pole is 32mm (1.25 inches) in diameter. Internal spring loaded wires guide the pole sections together for quick and easy assembly. The center pole has a welded lanyard ring which can be used to hang an inner tent or chandelier.
Pro Canvas (360 gr/m² or 10.62 oz/yd²) is the best canvas for premium bell tents; but it’s not all about the weight. Our proprietary Pro treatment adds additional waterproofing to the natural water resistance of canvas, along with mold and UV resistance. Pro canvas is designed for long term use and wide range climates. A balance of breathability, waterproofing, and durability; Pro canvas is ideal for camping comfortably in all 4 seasons. Repairable and retreatable, a properly maintained Pro 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 bell tent that is as durable as it is beautiful.
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.

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®.
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.
