Default Mixing Yurt Components

Would it work to put a pacific wall on a colorado yurt? The walls have a couple inches height difference. I am looking at a colorado yurt but it needs a new wall and I found a wall from a pacific yurt that is only a couple years old.

This is unlikely to work. They are completely different designs. It would be like trying to use Nissan parts on a Toyota. Yeah, they are both automobiles but that is where the similarity ends.

It can be done but Pacific is unlikely to be willing. I have done the reverse on a Pacific Yurt, I had to go in person to take all measurements and place the order, covered it with a Colorado roof and wall. Just finished another one like this last weekend, it worked fine. But why not just order the roof and walls from Colorado? Especially if you have original owner's name? The connections are better for roof to wall with Colorado...

Because it would be less expensive to get a 2 year old second hand Pacific wall than a brand new Colorado wall.

Ahg, sorry, just read the OP! So you have a line on second hand Pac yurt skins as well as a line on a Colorado yurt frame and hoping they would fit.

From experience, I don't recommend this route as they are highly unlikely to fit well and may not not fit at all. Different specs. Similar... but different. The walls don't connect to the doors the same way, wall perimeter and compression ring heights are different and more that I'm probably not thinking of right off.
