Does anyone have any information about this tent.  I found one advertisement for it an 1995 Colorado Springs Gazette Telagraph newspaper. 

Coleman 8-Person 12 x 9 Traditional Tent 9243-129

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
George

Hard to believe it was listed for sale in a newspaper in 1995 and hasn't sold yet.

I don't see that exact model in the catalogs, but there are similar ones in the mid-90's. That logo is definitely mid-90's. The walls are most likely "nylon taffeta" and the ceiling "poly/canvas". It looks like a nice tent with a raised lip around the floor which I don't see in any of the catalog tents of the mid-90's.

For 1996 I do see a "Traditional II" tent with model number 9243A129, but it looks something like your tent, but with a wider door going on both sides of the center pole and large square side windows, it's more like a 1970's Oasis tent. It seems that not all catalogs show the complete line of tents. 

Then there's this ebay listing: >link< that calls it "canvas", but I don't know. As far as I know, Coleman quit making canvas walled tents in the mid-70's.

Stan, does the catalog say what material these tent are made of? It arrived yesterday and I set it up. This is a heavy tent, 65 lbs. the side walls and roof are made of a thick fabric very similar to the Dri-Tex material used on the 1970’s family style tents. The floor is a heavy rubber-like plastic. This tent was made in Korea and the underside of the floor has hungul writing identifying the manufacturer as part of the mold.

All I know is stated above, "nylon taffeta" was used in that era, but yours sounds pretty heavy. I know my early 80's "Classic" tent has walls of heavy spun polyester, which I thought was canvas at first. It only weighs 33 lbs though, and that was a clue that it wasn't canvas.
