Why do you need a new floor? I always thought you just put your blankets on the ground inside your tipi?

A floor is not necessary, you may be thinking of the liner which is for maximum effiecency... you'll be able to measure it when you put it up... enjoy there's no finer way to camp!!

I'm pretty sure..I've always had to sit on the dirt floor..with lots of blankies around. Not the most comfortable..but a nice memory foam floor would be great...haha
Sorry, usually there is no floor.

I vote for Pergo!!!

I can't see using a canvas floor, unless you were in a damp area.

Rugs and old carpet are MUCH better...if you need a floor.

For 2 summers my family stayed in tipis (we ran a TeePee Campground), we didn't have any floors. My mom had a rug by her bed.
