I worked for Jones Tent & Awning from 1965 to 1991 and for many years was the purchasing manager. We had the frame and ribs manufactured off site, we made the canvas items and assembled the board and bag. In those days prior to the first metal frames and nylon packs like Camptrails (that we were the first to import and sell in Canada) the trappers, outdoorsmen etc. liked the Trapper Nelson as if broke down they could repair it on the trail. If a metal frame broke a weld there was nothing they could do. It become to costly to make and production was stopped.
