What you should pay attention to when buying a tent

Not all tents are suitable for every type of holiday. It is therefore worth considering what suits your type of tent camping. You should consider these tips when buying a tent. It is important that the tent poles are flexible but not easily broken. The floor and inner tent should let air through, this works best if they are made of nylon. When it comes to the outer tent, you should make sure that it is made of tear-resistant, weather-resistant and waterproof material.

Buy a stable tent

You often take a tent with you for a longer stay. This is convenient because you can leave tents at the campsite. This means you can be independent by car or bicycle during the day. Excursions are so easy to organize. At the Caravan is that different So you always have your accommodation with you. However, you also have to prepare them daily for excursions, unless you do them on foot, by public transport or by bike.

Think about what is important to you when buying a tent. When choosing your camping tent, it is important that it is stable. It's worth spending a little more money on this. Because nothing is more annoying than having to worry about your tent collapsing on you in a storm.

water column tent

If you only need the tent for spontaneous short trips at the weekend, a look at the weather forecast is usually enough. If precipitation is announced, it is better to do without the tent camping if you only have a simple tent. However, if you want to go on a longer trip, it is important that the tent is waterproof. The tent descriptions contain information about the water column of the tent.

How high should the water column be in the tent?

Usually the water column in the tent starts at 3000 mm. However, tents with an even higher water column are better. The higher the better. The tent floor should have at least this value. The ground is most exposed to water. A water column of 5000 is ideal for the tent floor.

How long is a tent waterproof?

From a water column of 2000, an outer tent is considered waterproof. The tent floor is considered waterproof from a water column of 3000. But beware! The longer the tent is left in the sun, the more the material ages. This reduces the water column.

How do I waterproof a tent?

If the waterproofness decreases, you can make the tent waterproof again with a strong waterproofing agent. You set up the tent for this. Make sure this is dry. Then you spray the tent seams with waterproofing agent. Let the seams dry. Then you can do a test with water. If water still gets in, repeat this process until the tent is tight again.

How much wind can a tent withstand?

Professional folding tents usually withstand wind speeds of up to 70 km/h (wind force 8). However, they must be well secured to the ground. Weights alone are not enough for this. Additional guy ropes and pegs are also required.

Buy a bike tent

If you are traveling with a tent and bicycle, then you should buy a lightweight bicycle tent. Trekking tents are also suitable. The lighter the weight, the better. One-man tents, which are quick and easy to set up, are best. Water resistance is also important here. Because nothing is more uncomfortable than having to sleep in a damp tent after a bike ride.

Buy a quick pitch tent

Quick-setup tents are also very practical. They can be set up in just a few minutes. A pop-up tent is ready to move into in a minute.

Buy a large tent or tents with an awning - buying a tent for 2 people is not always worthwhile

If you go camping with several travelers, it is worth buying a large tent. It's best to choose a size that will hold more people than will actually travel. So each passenger has enough space. Tents with an awning are also suitable for this. Depending on the size, the awning can also be used as sun protection or shelter if it suddenly starts to rain. This makes the camping tent a pleasant place to stay.

How much does a tent cost? Buying cheap tents is not always optimal.

Of course, if you want to buy a tent, the price also plays a role. The price of a tent depends on the size, the material and the equipment. There are simple 2-person tents from 40 or 50 euros. A 2-person tent without much chi-chi costs between 80 and 120 euros.

How long does a good tent last?

That depends on the material. A heavy cotton tent will last longer than a medium weight tent. Cotton tents are more durable than polyester tents. A medium-weight cotton tent can be expected to last around 150-350 days. Heavy cotton tents last about 200 to 500 days. You should therefore pay attention to the quality of the material when buying a tent.

How long does a polyester tent last?

Polyester tents are not very durable. They are expected to have a useful life of 10 to 20 weeks.

How big does a tent have to be?

So that an adult can sleep well in the tent, you should assume a width of about 70 centimeters per person. The size of the person is also important. It is best to add twenty centimeters to the height of the respective person. So the tent user has enough space. If you want to buy a tent for 4 people, then you take the tallest person as a measure.
