While shopping for a new camping tent, look for special features that will let you enjoy the use of that camping tent for many years to come. Identify your budget and make a decision ahead of time how much you can manage to pay for to spend. I am not essentially advocating that you buy the most luxurious tent available in your price range, but it will assist you to know what your choices are. Once you know how much you can spend it's time to examine the features of the camping tents in that price range.
Let's begin to see the most important feature of a camping tent:
A tent with aluminum poles : Camping tents may come with fiberglass poles, but they are easily broken and more likely to smash. If you crook or break a pole, most of the camping stores trade replacements or repair kits.
A tent with an adequate rain fly : The rainfly is just like your tent's umbrella. The bigger one is much better. Look for a fly that comes very down the sides of the tent rather than just crossways the top. Rain flies are always waterproof. Tent walls are water-repellant.
A tent with folded seams and double stitching : If you can drag the material on either side of a ridge and see through the stitches, this tent would leak. Be aware to use seam sealer on all ridges.
A tent with a one piece tub floor : The floor should be made of waterproof material, and it should come a few inches up the sides before it is sown to the tent walls. No seam in the floor means there is no place for water to seep in.
A tent with adequate guy lines : Tent walls, and sometimes rain flies, have loops sown near the middle. These loops are used to attach guy lines that pull out the walls so that they are taught. It's impossible to sleep in a tent that's flapping in the wind.
A tent with heavy-duty zippers : You'll be in and out of your tent a lot so you want zippers that will hold up to frequent use.
