Re: Any ideas on how to find a replacement tent pole for an REI Co-op Roadster tent?

I am looking for a replacement tent pole for my REI Roadster one person tent.  Discontinued tent.   I have misplaced the pole that goes with this tent.

Hi @Llamaboy. How old is your tent? I don't recognize the style name. 

I think it may be easier to repair a pole versus creating a new one. Does the tent have more than 1 pole and maybe the other pole can be replicated? You may have 2 options:

-You can reach out to Tent Pole Technologies - we have worked with them for many years for tent pole repair and replacement.

-Some REI stores carry parts to repair poles. Give your local store a call and see if they have that service. 

I hope for a speedy repair!

The REI Co-op Roadster was an awesome tent! I'm stoked to hear that you're still putting it into service. We're sorry that you've misplaced the pole! With the details that @Gary2  provided, Tent Pole Technologies should be able to replicate the pole for you. As @REI-JennyA suggested they are great at repairing tent poles, but also can build an entire new pole from scratch. I also wanted to call out to your attention the REI Co-op Flash Air Tent, that is a distant cousin to the Roadster. It's kind of cool to see how tent technology has evolved!

Hope this helps, thanks!
