Q: What is the best family tent?
A: Before 're looking for a tent , decide on how , when and wherever you 're going 's using it . Many people use their tent solely for sleeping , and setup another shelter ( tarp , easy-up or screen room ) for cook , eating and relaxing ( in all the cases , you should never cook or eat in your tent ) . So floor space and height , while being a consideration for nightly comfort and organizations , 're not a significant factors . In hot weather , a tent with a lot of mesh windows and doors will is greater comfortable , however , in cooler weather these mesh panels required to be capable of being zipped-closed to block wind and retaining heating . Rain protect is an significant consideration , so characteristics like a full-coverage rain flies ( outer sheet ) and bath-tub floor designing ought to be present . Another family-friendly characteristics is a two-room tent , which has a zip-up weverything in the mid , gives a small privacy for changing clothes . When looking at tents , bear in mind that the `` person '' capability a tent advertises is asleep capacity , which are generally measured to be around 82 '' x24 '' per person . That is feasible to quite cramped quarters for family camping , so I generally recommend a 6-person tent ( or larger ) for family camping . Being able to stand-up inside the 10t generally was no of big significance , including , in particular , when one considers the additional effort needed for setup . But a tent that 's at the very least 4 ' high will allow you to sit inside in a fold chair if the weather is unpleasant . Coleman , Eureka ! and Kelty all offer good 6-person family camping tents with different affordable models . The two-room Eurkea Suite V6 would be my firstly choice because of its flies designing ( which are able be conversion to an awning ) and height , although it is a little bit pricey ( $ 210- $ 299 , relying on reseller ) . A close second would be the Kelty Grand Mesa six , ( $ 149- $ 200 ) , which also 's got a good flies designing . The Coleman Montana six would be my third choice , followed intimately by the two-room version of the Coleman Sundome six , ( both is costinground $ 120 ) . Campmor 's a good site to research various tents , and they generally have good price . .

Q: What type of tent is best for camping?
A: I have two tents . A big one for when my sweetie and I go camping together , and a lesser one for when I go on my motorcycle rides . I rode the bike up the coastline to MacKerricher State Park ( just northern part of Mendocino ) back in May . It was just a small backpacking tent that fits on my bicycle .
