Weight won’t be a big issue. By the way, heavier tents also more durable and spacious for long last.
- Layout – There are 2-room or 3-room camping layouts or more. Bigger camping tent gives more privacy and options. Pick up the right version based on your different camping purposes.
- Durable – Check the different materials, some cheap tents are made of nylon fabric, which might not stand up to a storm or even a heavy raining in the woods. Choose some materials like fiberglass, which is 10x stronger than normal fabric.
