You might try these files in the DWELLINGS section of my Stefan's Florilegium.

You will find reviews of various tent merchants in the tent-sources file. But
it is also possible to make your own, sometimes inexpensively. A number of these
files are meant to give some useful info for this.

My files can be found at:
