Can my tent or canopy have side walls?

In most cases, yes.  However, side walls may restrict air flow necessary for health, block vehicular visibility and affect the location of heating devices or otherwise conflict with the fire code.  Therefore, if not otherwise restricted, it is recommended that 50% of the tent or canopy be left open for air flow.
