Camping can be a great alternative to staying at a hotel this summer to save money on a family vacation. Tenting can be especially inexpensive if you find the right tent; if you have a family and do not think they will fit into a single tent, think again. There are many family size tents on the market, some even under $150 that offer exceptional quality. This article will take a look at 3 of the best family size tents on for under $150, also where to get them, and price.
1. Texsport Kingwood Three Room Family Cabin Tent
I own one of these Texsport three room family tents; they offer exceptional room and even have multiple rooms which are separated by a thin canvas divider. This tent has exceptional waterproof abilities if the rain fly is attached, and also offers a panoramic view without the rain fly during nice weather. The interior cabin has plenty of room for 3 full double size air mattresses, and then still room for clothing and other storage. This tent also has multiple windows which have excellent bug screening which prevent even the smallest bugs such as no-see-ums yet still ventilate very well. This family tent is also great for two people if you want plenty of room in which to move around in, if you do not already have a family. This tent can be found at www.dickssportinggoods.com for $119.99.
2. Wenzel Big Piney 2 Room 16 x 8-Foot Family Tent
This 116 square foot tent provides plenty of room for up to 6 adults, or a combination of adults and children. This tent is so large it offers plenty of room for everyone to sleep and also for gear storage; the rain fly and welded seams also provide increased water protection from rain. The overhead gear loft offers plenty of additional storage which is not seen in many other family tents. The Wenzel Big Piney family tent can be found at www.amazon.com for $105.79.
3. White Cap Mountain Family Tent By GigaTent
This 15′ X 9′ tent offers plenty of room for a family of 4-6 to sleep and store any clothing or additional items. The bug netting offers protection against all bugs, even the smallest no-see-ums. On the side of this family tent’s entrance are shoe holders to prevent dirt from entering the tent, which is actually a great convenience for keeping the tent clean. The 4 windows are great for ventilation and cooling the tent down in warm days. This tent is also waterproof with the rain fly on; this product can be found at www.giftbrand.com for $139.99.
