For those planning on camping out this year, finding a tent large and comfortable enough for you and your friends or family can seemingly be difficult at first. However, you can make your search easier by following these tips.
Pick the right tent size: A four person tent is made for up to four people assuming you have no personal gear. So, unless you are bringing very little along with you, a four person tent is really made for two adults, perhaps a small child and your gear.
Length & Width: You will need at least an extra foot of space beyond your height to sleep comfortably in the tent.
Keep below 8’ x 8’: Tents that are larger than 8’ x 8’ tend to be very bulky, heavy, and difficult to set up. Plus, they can take up a considerable amount of space in your vehicle, so keep the size down if at all possible.
Four person tents tend to come in A-frame, umbrella, or dome shape. The dome makes for the most floor space, but the umbrella offers the best height. The old, durable A-frame is a classic and perfect for sleeping.
