    Default Kingdom 6 tent pole measurement help

    I recently purchased a used REI kingdom 6 tent. Can I ask someone to measure the length of their crossover tent pole? I need to know how long it is so I can get a (missing) replacement one made.

    REI should be able to supply you with that information. If not, try tentpoletechnologies.com. They have a lot of tent measurements in their database.

    Hey typical....Welcome to the Forum!

    You may have a wait for a forum member to measure the crossover pole and reply (if one has an REI Kingdom 6 and happens to see your post).

    Instead, I would contact Tent Pole Technologies either via website or good old telephone (link to their site below). They make replacement poles and/or just a pole section for most tents...fiberglass or aluminum. They also already have the pole dimensions (both length and diameter) for a large number of tent brands/models. I'm fairly certain they would have the measurements for the Kingdom 6....since it is a popular tent.

    I can get you a measurement this evening if you still need it. But MacGyver and Hoosier already have you pointed in the right direction for a replacement.

    Great tent choice BTW! :-)

    This. This is why this is a good forum. Thanks maynard for the assist.

    And I agree, the REI Kingdom series has a lot going for it.

    206.125" total length.

    The posts are 0.75" on each side (include in above measurement).

    So if you wanted the shoulder to shoulder length from the interface of the pole and the grommet on either side you're looking at 204.625".

    Pole diameter is approx 0.5". (Don't have an OD mic at the house...)
