HISTORY OF SPRINGBAR
Springbar Stakes

With a keen eye for detail, Jack Kirkham makes some adjustments to the pattern for an early internal frame Springbar tent. This photo dates to the early 1960s.

After nearly 20 years making custom tents with his company, AAA Tent & Awning, in the early 1960s, Jack Kirkham, Sr. began manufacturing and selling a production line of tents based on his original "Skyliner" Springbar® design. The cover and page illustrations are Jack's own artwork.

Jack Kirkham stands out front of his store at 24 West 500 South in Salt Lake City. By the time this photo was taken, the Springbar tent business was taking off and the retail store's focus had shifted to camping and outdoor supplies, although AAA continued to do custom canvas work.





LETS KEEP IN TOUCH!

HOW TO SETUP A SPRINGBAR TENT

The unique Springbar design is not only strong, it's also super easy to set up! Our strong frames have a minimal number of poles to keep track of and no ropes necessary for a secure pitch. Once you've experienced the ease with which these tents go up, you'll be spoiled for life.

Remember! The first time you setup your new Springbar® tent give it a good soaking with a hose to "shock" the fabric. This will tighten up the fabric and seams, making it even more water resistant. Let it dry completely and you will be ready for any kind of weather.



WARRANTY AND REPAIR
