Being in the great outdoors helps you forget about the rat race of life and gives you some peace of mind. Camping is a completely different type of vacation. It can create a unique bond in a short weekend that shows the family and friends the great outdoors and teaches them a ton of new things. We will address a few key options when searching for a 6 man tent. This will make your decision easy and fun!
What is key about a 6 man tent is that there is so much space that you will never run out of room for gear or food. These tents are great even if you are bunking with only 2,3, or 4 people because there is so much room that it make camping a little more comfortable. Remember, a tent becomes your home and comfort zone, when you are camping and to have a comfortable sleeping area can make your experience so much better. What is also really amazing is that most tents are pretty easy to set up as well.
I have been camping for my entire life, using all different tents in all different types of weather. I want to share with you a couple of the most important recommendations when shopping for a 6 man tent. The most important is quality! A cheap-o tent will do the job in perfect weather and with little to no abuse, but once it gets knocked around a little it will be worthless. The tent I use now is approaching 30 years old and is as good today as it was new. It recently just survived the Arizona Monsoon season. Quality is number one. This includes double stitched seams and floor.
My second recommendation is making sure it is easy to put up. Nine times out of ten if you purchase a quality tent it will be easy to put up. However, some can be a big pain to erect. I would recommend that it is easy enough to put up so the kids can do it. Having a good quality tent that can last years and put up with abuse will make such a big difference in your camping experience.
Now if you are shopping online the question might be ‘How will I know if it is a quality tent and if it is easy to put up?’. Great question, this will help you. Most of the time tents are pretty inexpensive. Unless you are looking for a tent that will survive the hike up Mt. Everest. Check out the price range, and then pick out a tent that is middle/higher end pricing. Review its characteristics. Most online stores will go all out to provide you with superior service, so give them a call or shoot them an e-mail. Ask for the most qualified person there and then ask him or her about the tent, its quality and the ease of erection. Ask the professional if they were in your shoes…”what would you do?”.
Take your time and be comfortable with your decision. You are making an investment into your life and your family’s life. Follow the directions and follow the links from this page. Good luck finding your 6 man tent. Live will, laugh often, and dream big!
