I haven't had a tent with a frame in 40 years. Have you considered Plastic tubing. All of mine are fiberglass and hooked by bungie cords. What are you looking for?

Well I mean the kind like what you said. I have to have something that is flexable . We have the same kind of tent too, but I want one like it but where maybe the fabric has been damaged and some one just wants to get rid of it. We still use our so I can't just tear it up to do what I want and I just thought maybe someone out there had one they wanted to get rid of.

Our tent has a fixed frame. It is shaped like a house.

We use to have one of those too but we wore it out many years ago. If I had known at the time I would have kept the frame cause it would have done what I need it for. We have a big dome type tent now that we use for camping. I keep talking about camping and that makes me wish more that spring was here,LOL. Oh I'll find one some time in the near future, at a yard sale or fleamarket and I'll get it.

Did you find a tent frame yet?

Washington, IN(Zone 6a)

No I haven't. I didn't realize finding one would be this hard LOL. Usually some one has got one that the shell has worn out and they just throw it away, buttttttttttttttttt.

Flower, you might want to try posting on Craig's List, or free cycle.

I have it posted on freecycle and I went to craigs list and didn't see anywhere to do anything like that.

Ladoga, IN(Zone 6a)

There's a "wanted" category, that you can post it on, at Craig's list.

Have you tried Thrift Shops or Antique/Junk Shops? They seem to have everything. isn't it funny what one can put to use? What do you have in mind? We may want to streal your idea! LOL!

I want to make a small green house out of it. I figured if I could find a frame that was anywhere from 7 to 10 feet wide and at least 7 foot center I could put plastic on it and make me another GH. What do you think? Good idea?

Do you get much wind?

Fabulous idea. I saw where someone on the tomato forum (?) used a frame and bubble wrap! Made a nice snug greenhouse o extend the season, then could just be peeled off as it warmed up. We gardeners are clever people, especially when $$$-challenged!

I hope you will keep us posted!

Washington, IN(Zone 6a)

Well I have posted it everywhere and haven't come up with anything yet, but I am still hoping I'll find one somwhere or someplace.
