We seem to have lost our tent poles. We only used the thing once and I'd hate to throw it away and spend money on a new one. It's an Eddie Bauer dome tent and measures 9' x 7'6". I bought some replacement poles that you have to build but have no idea what size the need to be. I'm hoping someone here might be able to help. Thank you for your time.
Definitely toss it out, or use it to cover your firewood or something. The cost of poles (if they're available, which almost certainly they are not) and shipping would likely be as much as a tent like this bought at discount anyway. These are imported tents contracted out to here today/gone tomorrow manufacturers overseas so replacement parts are almost non-existent. As a seasoned-camper, you might consider a high-end tent (bought at discount)from manufacturers like Big Agnes, Northface, Mountain HardWear, Sierra Designs, Marmot, etc.) They outlast the cheaper models and like a quality down bag save money if you camp often...Otherwise, it's back to the BigBox stores!
