There is nothing like enjoying the outdoors like a good old camper. What better way of experiencing the raw beauty of nature than through careful planning and preparation. One cannot deny the fact that people today are used to having the basic conveniences of living. This leads to the number one priority in setting out for a camping trip - the camping tent.
There are a number of common factors that one should consider in choosing the appropriate camping tent. In general, if a higher quality camping tent is needed the more dollars should be allocated. However this is not always the case. For people who can afford the high end, Eureka tents offer high quality durable tents. In the mid-price range, Coleman sells good quality tents. Ozark or Great Trails would comprise the lower end camping tents in the market.
The first to consider is the number of people who will be using it. This will generally determine the suitable size as well as the style. Speaking of style, there are different styles to choose from. The dome style's round shape offers wind resistance aside from its being small and simple to set-up. In the case of having a good number of campers like 4 to 9 people, family camping tents should be chosen. The umbrella style offers roomy head room for many people and is well-ventilated. Another style that can house many people is screen houses. Compared to the previous style, this offers first-rate ventilation. For the seasoned backpackers and campers, the A-frame style tent and backpacking tent are the ones to choose because it is lightweight and simple to set-up. The latter comes in varying sizes for 2 to 4 people.
