Good Family Tents are the keys to a successful vacation

Good Family Tents are the keys to a successful vacation or a failed weekend trip.  Having the right one for the type of camping you are going to do is the first thing you should think about before purchasing one.  Will you be camping in the woods or in open land?  You should also decide if you would be spending time outdoors in the warmer or cooler months.  Most people start out in the warmer climates and move on from there. There are different styles of Family Tents to choose from including dome and cabin type.  You can get Family Tents that hold four to ten people, with or without screen rooms.

Cabin type Family Tents

Cabin type Family Tents have the most headroom and give you the most usable floor space.  Some models come with removable zippered walls that can divide it into as many as three to four separate rooms.  Most of them use a no-see-um screen in windows and doors for privacy.  You can even get Family Tents that have screened in rooms that allow you to be outdoors, without all of the bugs that go along with it.  You can also keep a close eye on the children without worry of them roaming away.  This style of Family Tents takes up a good amount of space, not only on the ground, but also in the air.  You have to watch where you set this one up though, with its high walls you wouldn’t want to have a branch scratching it during windy conditions, which could cause a leak.

Dome style Family Tents are good for camping in the woods, due to its lower height design.  It comes with a lot of the same features as the other tents.  Sewn in mesh pockets under the windows helps keep keys, wallet and glasses in close reach.  Most have a gear loft sewn or strapped in the ceiling of them to put excess small items so they are not lost.  They also have straps to hang battery-operated lights from.  Some of them also come with a screened in room.

Our first Family Tents were one room ten by ten with a rain fly over the top of it.  We had two small children at the time, but it was more than adequate for our use.  This was a good starting point for us.  We traveled up and down the east coast with that tent, until the children got older.  We then purchased a smaller one for them and continued to use the one we had for many years.  Our children still camp years later and I know that they will share it with their kids too.

Family Tents are made out of canvas or nylon.  Both are both are UV resistant to withstand the elements.  Non-corrosive zippers are installed for less catching and drag and years of use.  Lightweight aluminum  or fiberglass  poles with bungee type cords running through the center of them make set up easy.Teaching our children to enjoy and respect the outdoors at a young age will open the door for them to experience what too many do not, the beauty and freedom of nature that is all around us.  It can even help you build a closer relationship with them. Making the right decision with your Family Tents can be a very rewarding experience for you and them.
