Things To Consider Before You Purchase A Family Camping Tent

Before you purchase a family camping tent, answer these basic questions on how you will be using the tent and what type of camping you will be doing.  By determining what type of camping tent is right for you before you buy, you will save money, time and have the perfect tent for your camping experience.

What Type Of Camping Tent Do You Need?

This all comes down to one question.  What type of camping do you plan on?  If you want to experience the thrills of hiking through the back country, a light weight camping tent for two is the best choice for you.  If you are family camping in one location at a camp site, then you might want to opt for some creature comforts of home!  Such as room camping tents and large family camping tents that will not only comfortably sleep your entire family but will hold all their personal gear as well.

How many people will be using the tent?  And for what purposes?

As this article is geared toward family camping, we’ll stay with the large family style camping tents.  First decide on how you will be using your tent.  Are you just going to sleep in it?  Are you also storing personal items (clothes, entertainment, toiletries) inside?  Will you be using the tent to store other camping gear?  These are all important to consider before you purchase a camping tent, because when a manufacturer states that a tent sleeps four people, what they really mean to say is – this tent will only fit four normal sized sleeping bags with room for little else!  So if your family of four plans to use the tent for more than just sleep, then it’s wise to buy a large family camping tent that sleeps six and quite possibly a tent with more than one room (for those who are planning on camping with pre-teen and/or teenage kids – you know what I mean!).
