I've been going through my storeroom and found a new, unused North Face Oval Intention tent in pristine, mint condition - complete with the original pitching and care instructions, stakes, poles, sack, etc. I no longer need this tent and will sell it for the best offer.

Maxwell, I am moving this to the general forum. I think you may have better luck there.

What is the fair market value of this tent? What is it worth?

I have not seen it at North Face in a long time, I don't remember how much they asked for it new. I suppose I could ask them?

I called The North Face and they don't keep records on old equipment items like the Oval Intention. So I am not sure what it would have cost. Maybe I can try ebay?

I found one at pbase.com and I emailed a owner about what he paid for his in 1977. The tent was first produced in 1975 as the first Geodesic dome tent. It weighs about 15 lbs.

I checked my 1975 catalog and the retail price is listed at $235. I still have my original Oval, although it has started to delaminate.

So my bid of $250 is over the last known price of the tent. Let me know ASAP if you will accept it?

So I guess my highest bid would be $300?

Anyway I'll sell the brand new tent to you for $325, plus shipping. If you are interested, you may contact me at maxwell_mike@hotmail.com to work out payment and shipping details.

Thank you for your interest.

Best regards,

Mike
