We have updated our family tent. We started looking around for the perfect tent for family trips and and for camping. When you start to look around for a new family tent, there are a few things, that are good to keep in mind. You need to figure out, what you want from the tent and what you are willing to compromise, to get a good tent that fits your family.
We use our family tent for roadtrips, you can find our best tips for taking your kids on a road trip here, and for family camping. You can find our best tips on camping with a toddler here. Our family tent is one of the things we always bring camping, you can find all of the things we always bring here, and a few unexpected suggestions for what to bring camping here.
How we found our perfect family tent.
We have looked at what expectations we had for the tent and we listed the following:
- Room for all of us 6.
- Adults height inside, we are tall people, so that you get your clothes on without lying down.
- Proper quality, so we were sure that we remained dry even on rainy days.
- A proper entrance
We also listed some nice to have things:
- good ventilation
We looked at SO many large tents, and quickly we we’re able to cut some from the process
- Cotton tent. This was actually quite hard because we love the feel of camping in cotton tents but we cut them due to weights.
- Most of the dome and tunnel tents because they are too small.
- Many very cool camping tents due to weight as well.
We ended up with two different tents that we would choose between.
The Helsport tent is a Lavvu (very much like a tipi, with only one pole in the middle) with an entrance. The Bergan’s tent is something between a dome tent (low tent with bars in arches) and a lavvu.
Both tent could meet most of our requirements on both lists. Two super cool tents that were very similar and at the same time very different. Now we asked ourselves witch of our requirements was most important, and with that in mind we bought the Helsport Varanger Camp. Its such a great tent and as soon as we can we will make you a full review on it.
