Consumers can buy Army surplus canvas tents at Major Surplus and Survival. The tents can also be found at Mountain Gear Surplus Sales.
eBay and Amazon are additional places where the tents can be purchased. Like with any item, the prices, size and selection varies depending on the seller. Purchasing a tent online can also result in additional shipping costs. For low-cost tents, consumers can search local classified ads in their newspaper or they can browse yard sales and thrift stores. They can also check with local auction companies to receive notifications if any tents will be available at an upcoming auction in the area.
