Perfect for glamping families, 4 season living, and reliving renaissance as king of the camp!
Made of 100% cotton canvas.
CanvasCamp is the only bell tent manufacturer to proudly bear the Seal of Cotton™.
The 600 Twin is ideal for 4 glampers on queen beds and a full living room set up, or as many as 10 campers on sleeping pads. The dual center poles and oval shape provide ample ‘pacing space’.
Twin Bells and Oval Floor Plan
The 600 Twin is a mash up of two bell tents connected with a ridge pole. The unique oval shape of creates two “wings” with a central living room area. The steep angle of the canvas and cathedral like ceilings of the Twin provide ample ‘pacing space’ and a roomy interior.
Two people are required to raise the dual center poles. The oval shape and multifaceted structure necessitate even and taut tension on each and every guy line. As the tent settles and shifts on the ground in the breeze it is important to re-tension the guy lines as necessary. Due to the weight and size of the canopy, any amount of snow or ice accumulation can structurally compromise your tent, read more about snow load in our FAQ.
Twin A-frame Doors
The 600 Twin is equipped with a front door and a side door. The side door includes two square mesh windows equipped with roll up canvas covers. 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. Spring loaded poles snap together quickly for easy set up and fold together for fast take down and organized storage. The top of each A-frame door is equipped with a pin that sits in a grommet at the peak of the door to ensure proper placement. A rain cap is then placed over the pin and grommet to keep rain from running down the poles. The canvas doors zips together vertically. Each side of the door is equipped with loops and ropes to neatly tie back the canvas and hold them open when not in use.
The 600 Twin can be arranged in conjunction with additional Sibley attached to the second side door with a Sibley Connector to create a multiple room tent.
PRO Integrated Mesh Door
The Sibley 600 Twin PRO includes one no-see-um mesh door for the main front door entrance in addition to the canvas door. The side door includes two square mesh windows with roll up canvas covers. The tent is equipped with loops on either side of the doors to neatly tie them back when not in use.
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 (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.
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. Due to the unique shape and dual center poles on the Twin, there are lot of guy lines (25 in total) and you will need to spend a little extra time making sure they are all tensioned correctly for a perfect pitch.
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®.

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. There are 9 windows and 4 vents on the Sibley 600 Twin. The wing to the left of the main entrance has a large picture window. The side door to the right of the main entrance has two mesh backed windows with roll up canvas covers. There are 4 half moon windows on the back wall, and 2 in the front on their side of the main entrance.
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.
