I would like to buy a ring oval intention (taupe, gold and brown) to replace my original tent which was damaged by a friend (washed it!). TNF has said my tent isn't repairable and gave me a big discount on a newer VE-25 which is a good tent but NOT my Oval. I am returning to the BWCA in July and would love to return with an oval. I have a complete set of poles and rainfly so if you are missing pieces we might still be able to work something out if the basic tent is servicable.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey,  Sitting here staring at your post wondering if I should reply as I do have a OI ring tent body.  Didn't think I'd ever consider lettting it go but maybe.  It's in great shape one patch in the bottom (prof sewen patch and then sealed).  All the zippers work,  I think all the mesh is in tact but I'd have to make sure.  Used but not abused.  The Fly delaminated and I started using the very well used poles on another tent.  Anyway.  If your interested and we could come to some aggrement.  I could take it out and double check things an take picts.  Oh, Yea,  I bought it in 1976-77.  It's Yellow and Tan with a blue floor. They came in a # of different color arrangments.  The rain fly was blue.  Never have a blue fly, as I now understand where the term the having the blues came from as I was tent bound in Lake Tahoe in the rain for a week.  So, again not sure I wnat to part with but maybe.  I'll check back and give you my mail if your still interested.  Brian

Yes Brian, I am interested. While my tent had the brown floor (and I much prefer it) The blue would be acceptable. I have everything except the tent shell so this could work for us both. Please take a good look at what you have and get back to me. Also include your asking price once you have determined the actual condition. Thanks - Chuck
