Perfect For Large Parties & Families
When you have a big party of people going along on a camping trip, whether it’s a bunch of your kids or just a group of friends, the more people that go, the more camping crap you have to take along too. Picking your campsite and getting it set up can be a lot of fun, but when there is too much to get done, it can become a chore more than having a good time. The good times start after everything is ready and that includes getting the tents set up.
Larger Tents Are More Like Home
Unless it is a necessity, one large family camping tent can be an ideal way to cut down on the time it takes you to set up camp. Huge family tents are one of the hottest trends in camping today simply because they have multiple rooms which means separate sleeping compartments. Instead of setting up three separate small tents, use one great big one with at least three rooms and everyone still gets their own space.
More Gear, More Room
Big family tents for camping is what you are likely to see at most camp grounds these days. Even if you don’t have to use every room of the tent for sleeping quarters, when you have a lot of camping crap along with you, these monster sized family tents are absolutely ideal for storing your excess gear. Swimming floats, life jackets, bedding, plastic storage bins, or anything you want to keep out of the way, but protected at the same time, can be stored in an extra tent compartment. Even when you bring along a nice screen tent, you want to be able to use it for cooking and eating, not necessarily a storage area.
Light & Easy To Setup
One of the great things about these over sized family tents is that they are so easy to assemble even though they are very large. They usually come with collapsible fiberglass rods that slide right through specially designed rod slots. You can actually have many of these types of family tents set up in just a few minutes without all the headache you used to have trying to sort and separate those old metal poles that were often color coded and confusing.
If you love to camp and you want to make it as simple as possible, that means limiting the amount of stuff you take. There are many pieces of camping equipment you just can’t do without, but when you can take along one huge family tent for everyone instead of a bunch of smaller separate ones, then you are becoming a truly efficient camper!
