Default Best Camping Tents Buying Guide

Whether itís for recreational or professional use, you canít compromise on a tentís quality since you canít compromise on shelter and protection. For the best experience, you need quality tent. If you donít know what makes a tent a good quality tent, your money will go in vain for sure.

For the best investment, you need to know what you need to look for and what makes things best or worst. Donít worry! Itís not a rocket science. Just read and follow the following tips. We have discussed everything you need to know to choose the best camping tents in the marker.



Recreational or Professional: Why do you need the tent? The first thing you should ask yourself. A lot of things depend on this decision. The tents made for recreational use only include the basic features a non-professional camper would need for camping. Another important thing about these tents is, their structure is formed keeping general peopleís ability in mind. An amateur person can easily set those tents up. Moreover, these tents are cheaper than professional camping tents.
On the other hand, professional camping tents come with complex structure. Only professionals can set them up and that requires a little practice as well. These tents include special features for particular operations. They are pretty expensive too. So ask yourself, do you want a tent for recreational fun or some serious camping? The answer will lead you to the perfect tent.

The Size: Now, the tents come in different sizes. Some are made for a single person, some are built for two and there are large tents for six or eight people as well. So how many people youíre going camping with? The number will help you to determine the right size. Because if youíre not fully aware, you may end up purchasing a four-person tent and try to shove seven people inside. Thatíll never work.
The Ventilation System: There should be no compromise about ventilation. Lack of proper ventilation affects our respiratory system. And along with breathing difficulty and suffocating, it ruins the mood too. Plus, if thereís no proper ventilation process, the tent consumes the heat from outside and the inside becomes disturbingly hot. So, you mustnít forget to check the ventilation system of a tent Ė what kind of feature does it have for smooth airflow?
About the Weather: Weather is a matter of big concern when youíre camping somewhere. Because the sunlight or rain can affect your camping time to time. And sometimes, some tents fail to stand against a strong wind or storm. Lightning poses a threat too. So check the tents to see what features they hold for the protection against certain weather problems. Your convenience and safety depend on it.
Screens and Windows: There are some tents in the market that are stable and provides with strong protection against any natural calamity. But at the same time, they fail to ensure camperís utter convenience. How? They completely get sealed when you zip the door up or donít include any window. Even if they do, it doesnít help much in rain when you need some mesh screen. So for a healthy stay, you should only buy tents with windows, and mesh screen.
Donít Go Cheap If Possible: Well, the whole thing depends on your budget actually. Itís not like cheap tents are not good. Some cheap tents are better than many pricey tents out there. But itís better if you set your mind to spend a little extra. Because high-priced tents include more features than cheap tents and they have better facilities most of the time.
The Inside: Some tents come with great height, so that you can stand inside. But others are made for crawling in and sleeping. So if you buy a sleeping tent and complain about the center height not letting you stand inside, itís really an invalid argument. Decide, which height will suit you the best.
Inspect Properly: Before buying, inspect the product properly. Check for manufacturing flaws, any leak, loose stitch, holes, and broken part. These things are needed to be inspected to avoid buying a faulty product.
Read the Reviews: Well, you canít inspect the faults online. So itíd be better if you check the customer reviews to get an idea about the tentís quality.
Return Policy: However, when you buy something online, thereís always a sheer possibility that you may receive a faulty product since you canít see what youíre ordering exactly. So shop from the stores with a return policy. In case if they sent you a bad item, return policy will help you to replace it with a good one.
In short, be aware and be conscious about your purchase. Thatís all you need to avoid an awful shopping experience.

The tents in that list are low-end junk. They're good if you are considering 1st-time camping in the summer and want to see if tenting is for you before you buy something of quality.

I personally like the Coleman Sundome 4-Person Tent. It's lightweight and heavy duty at the same time. Used it many time both in good and bad weather conditions and never had any issues.

I just purchased the Coleman Sundome Elite 6P. Getting ready for the first trip this weekend. Let you know how it did.

Past tents years ago I owned were eureka domes. I cannot remember size and model, one was a decent size, the other was a little smaller. So far I like the way my Coleman looks, initially, I like the features.

I really liked this Kodiak Canvas Truck Tent. One of the plus points of owning this tent is that you will not even have to sleep on tough cold ground since the bed will give you all kinds of protections that you will be needing.
