If this sounds like you then a pop up tent could be just what you need. Make camping easy, make camping fun and make it stress free with these innovating family pop-up tents!
Pop up tents first came about on the market for festival party-goers and were designed to pop up and then throw away after they had been destroyed by drunken nights – like this one. After the rage about pop up tents more and more companies have been designing them so they are more sturdy and durable. On the market today we are seeing more and more of them about and pop up tents are quickly becoming the ‘tent’ to have when camping.
The Pro’s and Con’s of a pop-up Tent
Let’s face it, as with every good thing there has to be a disadvantage. Pop up tents are great because within minutes of arriving to your campsite you can be relaxing in a chair and having that chilled glass of wine while your neighbouring campers are still struggling with their tent. Pop up tents don’t just come in the basic form anymore but we are now seeing designs with different rooms, compartments and other various aspects which make pop up tents all that more appealing. If you are into extreme camping in seriously bad weather conditions then a pop-up tent might not just hold up. Although easy to assemble pop up tents can be a little more difficult to put down.
