What size tent will I need?
This entirely depends on the type of camping trip you’ve chosen, along with how many are going with you.
Tent berths are measured by how many people the tent can fit side by side, which is why you should always go for a little bigger than you think you need. It’s easy to be caught out by this, as berths and sizes don’t take into account any personal items such as rucksacks, footwear, or luggage.
So with this in mind, when you’re in the process of choosing a tent – consider these factors:
- How many people are going?
- How much equipment will I need?
- How much sleeping space will be required?
If you’ve opted for a campsite stay, it’s worth finding out whether there are size restrictions in place. Some campsites will charge the price of two pitching areas if you have a very large tent.
