The months of spring, summer and fall are special for a number of reasons, but are especially notable because all of a sudden everyone has a desire to spend more time out of doors. Is there any better way to take advantage of the great weather than by acquiring a tent? Whether you need a temporary and portable shelter for camping with the family, a safe and protected play area for the kids, or need a shelter for an outdoor rain or shine event, a 4 man tent and other tents varieties such as the 2 or the 6 man tent provide the perfect solutions.
The 4 man tent is perhaps one of the most popular tent varieties available for purchase. It is essentially a portable, reasonably priced shelter, which accommodates four individuals, and that is ideal for camping trips and other outdoor excursions. The typical 4 man tent is generally used for sleeping, while activities during the day are reserved for the open air, some of the most famous brandsare the Gelert 4 man tent and the Coleman 4 man tent due to their remarkable quality and durability .Although not an ideal set up for a family picnic or outing, where a tent may be needed as a shelter during daytime activities, this type of tent is preferred during group camping trips because it is relatively compact and lightweight, and can be assembled easily in a variety of different circumstances.
Another situation, in which a 4 man tent can come in handy, aside from camping trips, is as a temporary shelter for use at home, one could use a pop up 4 man tent to host unexpected guests. Kids love to play house and have sleepovers in tents set up on lawns, because it makes them feel grown up, while still having the comfort of home right next-door. A 4 man tent can comfortably fit several children, whereas adults might feel somewhat more cramped during activities other than sleeping. Having a tent available in the event of overnight visitors is also handy, especially when hosting a party, or when there are more visitors than guest rooms available. A 3 man tent it´s a good option to have at home for this situations.
Is your family the type that loves to go on overnight camping trips, but that does not like having to rough it quite so much? Trailer tent camping is a great alternative that allows families to experience the best of both worlds. Although a somewhat more expensive route to take, a trailer tent is essentially a home on wheels that is designed to be towed behind a regular vehicle. Some of the advantages of trailer tent camping as opposed to regular collapsible tents include the access to electrical outlets, which facilitate food preparation and nighttime lighting, among other things, and the added comfort of a portable living (as well as sleeping) space.
Sleeper tents are only some of several varieties of tents that come in handy during the warm months. For families or individuals that spend a good deal of time on the beach, owning a beach tent can be ideal both for shelter from the intense mid-day sun and for privacy during those inevitable crowded beach days. Similarly, a larger canvas tent, with either open or closed sides, may not be as portable an option as a sleeper tent , but can be ideal as a semi-permanent fixture in a yard or field, in order to accommodate outdoor activities such picnics and other large gatherings. This type of tent shelter can easily be made more inviting by simply acquiring a few pieces of outdoor furniture such as a patio set or even a picnic table, facilitating it as an area for outdoor food preparation and for relaxing in the shade.
Some of the larger, more permanent fixtures discussed above can incur additional costs. One way of reducing potential costs and labor related to assembly and upkeep, especially if you only need a shelter for a one-time event, is by considering the option of rent a tent. Most common for larger tent and shelter set ups, rent a tent frequently involves a crew that comes to assemble the structure for you, based upon your size and special features requirements.
