Best Family Tents | What to look for?

Picking the right tent for your family can be a tough decision with so many tents out there to buy. You may think just to go out and buy the cheapest one on the market. Buying the cheapest is not always the best choice. Make sure you do a bit of research from reviewers like me before you buy. If your buying from Amazon check the reviews of previous buyers too. Its a good idea to go with one with at least 100 reviews. Making sure there are some properly written reviews and not bought reviews.

Size :  Most importantly when choosing to buy the right family tent is the size of the tent. Work out how many people you are going to have sleeping in the tent. Once you have the amount you then need to look at how many man, the tent holds.

Storage facilities : Rather than storing everything you need while camping, scattered around your tent or in your car. Make sure your tent you are going to buy has storage pockets, most family tents do but check to make sure.

Durable Flooring : When camping with families its a good idea to have a look at the material used for the flooring. You want something hard wearing, so make sure the tent you are buying has a hard wearing base. If you are looking for ideas on what to use as your tents footprint check this guide here.
