Yes, we know, Camping Tents are not RV’s. But a lot of RVers started out camping in tents.
Our first tent had inside poles and the canvas weighed a ton. If you managed to put one of these baby’s up alone you had your exercise for the day.
Today’s camping tents are much friendlier. They use light weight fabric and graphite poles and can be set up quickly and easily from outside the tent. Some have folding poles that are compact and make for a very small bundle when transporting. Most offer easy to open inside window flaps that make changing the ventilation a breeze (pun intended). I saw one tent demonstrated on a video that can just be thrown down and it pops up all by itself in mere seconds.
If you have a big family, there are big tents. There are also great choices in individual tents. We know a family that bought a large tent for Mom and Dad complete with a separate bedroom, a porta potty room, and free-standing closet for clothes. The kids each have their own tent and use the big tent for changing clothes. They also have a screen tent that makes a comfortable bug free dining room. They told me they have less that $500 in all their tents and they use them most weekends during the warmer months.
Camping Tents are inexpensive and will fill the bill. There are many to choose from. There’s also a lot of choices in cots, air beds, sleeping bags and other camping gear. Take the family camping. It gets addictive. Sitting around the campfire is a great relationship builder. The smell of breakfast cooking over a campfire will really get your day off to a great start. And hot dogs and S’Mores in the evenings as you remember the events of the day just seem to make things right with the world.
Whether you go RVing or tent camping, get out there and have some family fun.
Camping Tents – Outdoor Fun
Camping leads to outdoor fun for the entire family. If you camp along a lake or a stream, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, hikes, rock climbing, whatever your choice in outdoor fun can be right there. You don’t have to drive to it again the next day. If you just have to have your TV or video games, there are lots of ways to take them along, but just experiencing outdoor life with your family is priceless.
