Cabin Tents - Why my Family Now Loves camping
At least once in your lifetime you probably had the urge to go out and experience camp life. In our modern times, not all have been able to experience camping during their teen years. That is why not everyone had experienced the fun and peacefulness of camping. Camping is also considered good training for children, especially if you want them to have active lifestyles. Being forced to leave the comforts of the house and of civilization, both children and adults are forced to re-learn basic survival skills such as making a bonfire. Besides that, it is a good prelude to a hiking or fishing trip. On the other hand, come to think of it, you don’t really need to leave the comforts of civilization.
Having a cabin tent would give you that good night sleep without pesky insect bites and freezing nights. You would think that you are actually living in a cabin. This way you can experience the wilderness and have a good night sleep to keep you refreshed for the next day.
Cabin tents are big enough that you would not feel cramped while sleeping or changing clothes. Some can even let you stand upright – though to save space and to keep away from high gusty winds it would be advisable to buy one that would just be right for kneeling. They can be big enough to have two or more partitions that serve as rooms. Each partition can range from four by six feet to eight by ten feet. Each tent can accommodate more than three people and some can fit up to 10 people.
Some cabin tents are even better than cabins because they are completely sealed and therefore are impenetrable from bugs. The windows have screen or mesh covering to keep the bugs out and to have a way to see what’s going on outside. Depending on the kind, tents come in insulating fabrics. There are also models that have their own heaters and air conditioning.
Another nice feature that some cabin tents have is the option to put up an airbed inside. By putting up an airbed you would feel as if you are at home at night. This will help you relax and immediately sleep to get the rest you need.
Living in a tent is better than living in a car since it is also more environment-friendly. The screen windows help you cut down on the use of chemical mosquito sprays and lotions. You would not need to create a bonfire to keep you warm during the nights.
One thing that should be taken into consideration when buying cabin tents is the color. There are different color regulations in camping sites so you should ask around which colors are allowed in your favorite camping spot. There are places where only natural colors are allowed to mesh with the area while others prefer bright colors. Natural colors are good to maintain the natural look of the area.
On the other hand, bright colored tents can help in cases of emergency. For lost hikers, it would be easy to spot a colorful tent. If you yourself find yourself lost, you can easily look for an orange or yellow tent. Rescue helicopters can also easily spot a colorful cabin tent.
