Frequently Asked Questions

Why is it called the Autonomous Tent? 

au·ton·o·mous - existing independently or having the freedom to do so.

We love this definition and believe it describes our tents perfectly. 

How much do your tents cost? 

We have recently developed a new type of tent frame that is stronger than steel and easier to ship.  However, it has turned out to more expensive to manufacture.  We are currently working with our manufacturing partners and will be announcing our new pricing model soon.  

How are your tents different? 

The Autonomous Tent shares many characteristics of a tent, but is really a new form of architecture that is in a class of its own.  It can be set up and taken down and in many locations will not require a permanent foundation.  However, it is engineered to stand up to hurricane winds (115 mph) and heavy snow loads (90 psf) and can be used year round in many locations.

What are the dimensions of your tent?

The interior of the tent is 640 sq ft and the dimensions are 12 ft high, 24 ft wide, and 27.3 ft deep. 

How do the tents hold up under high winds, lashing rain, heavy snow, and high moisture climates? 

Very well.  The tents have been engineered for hurricane winds (115 mph) and heavy snow loads (90 psf). 

Our tent frames are extremely strong and will last a lifetime with proper care.  

The tent fabric is specifically designed to stand up to heavy winds and rain. 

Do the tents require a trailer or a shipping container to ship them? 

Yes, if shipped within the US or Canada, we will deliver the tents via a semi trailer.  If shipped overseas, we will deliver the tents via a shipping container.  Cost for shipping will vary by design, quantity, and location.

What are the mechanics of the tent?

The mechanics of the tent are customized to each site. Some locations may have access to electricity, gas, water, and sewer and may be able to utilize these existing systems. However, many remote locations do not have these options.

In remote locations, a small array of solar panels will provide enough power for LED lights, pumps, water filters, and a composting system.  A small array of solar water heater panels or an on-demand propane water heater will provide enough hot water for showers and a sink. A grey water system can filter the shower and sink water and be returned back to the natural landscape.
