When looking for a tent you will see that there are many options to choose from. It can be very overwhelming. I have come up with some key things to keep in mind to help you make the right choice. After reading these tips you should be able to make a decision with no problem.
The first thing to consider is the size of your tent. How many people do you think will be using this tent? The 6 person tent is designed to sleep 6 people. This usually holds true but depending on the age and size of your campers this could change. A rule of thumb I personally use is to think about how many people you have then add room for 1 to 2 more people. If you have 3-4 campers then you will probably want to go with the 6 person tent. Using that method you shouldn’t have a problem with space when sleeping. Another plus in having this extra space is you will be able to store your camping essentials without it being in your way.
Privacy should be another choice when choosing your tent. A 6 person tent usually comes with the option of either having 1 room or multiple rooms. If there are children, teenagers, and adults in the same tent you might want to consider leaning towards multiple rooms. A plus in having multiple rooms is you could put your camping gear in a separate room allowing for extra space where its needed. In most cases you will want the extra privacy but if you want to keep a eye on your kids then you will want the one room tent. All jokes aside it will just depend on your situation on how you will figure out if you need extra privacy or not.
The last thing to consider is the tents weather rating. Come up with the places where you will travel and what kind of weather you might expect. Make sure to get a tent that can handle heavy rain, windy conditions, and whatever weather you think could come your way. If you plan on camping in the hot weather you should also keep ventilation in mind. If you go camping spring to fall then a 3 season tent is a good option to go with.
The 6 person tent can come with many options but following these simple tips you should have your tent picked out in no time. When it comes down to it the most important part of camping is your tent so you will want one that best suits your needs.
