Need Some Info on a Vintage Tent 
While cleaning up my parents' garage here, I stumbled on this box with a canvas tent in it. The canvas is still of good quality. I'm thinking of asking dad if I could get it. The thing is, I can't find any info on how to set it up. There's no manual or anything inside the box other than a tag that says Golden West Professional Backpackers tent. Been trying to find some info about it but no luck.

Anyone here that can help me out?

Found a photo of what it looks like when it's set up. From the looks of it, it looks pretty much like most other canvas tents. You might want to check on YouTube. I'm sure that there are a lot of videos on how to set up a standard canvas tent. Might work.

Perhaps you can ask your dad for some help on how to set it up. Another is to check if you can find some old photos of the tent already set up. If it looks like most of the other canvas tents, you can try checking youtube for some vids on how to set it up.

I'd go with el fuller's suggestion. From the way how I see it, I don't think the structure of canvas tents has changed much. You might be able to get some luck on some videos on YouTube.

I pretty much agree with mary on this. YouTube seems to be the best option.
