Things to Look for in a Glamping Tent

Tents are supposed to stay with us for years, we normally shop for them once, and then they stay in the family.

Before you buy one, make sure that it’s what you need. Think about the group you usually socialize with and the places where you camp, that should put you on the right track.

Here are other features you’d want to have in your new tent.

Usable Size

Tents usually give the floor dimensions, but you need to see how this space is organized.

Sometimes a big tent has so much wasted space in corners, a porch, circular perimeters, and doors.

The opposite is also true, an awning over the entrance gives extra space. Some models had an adaptable entrance porch that could be converted to an extra room.

Premium Quality Materials

The material of the tent is the only thing standing between you and the elements. Nature usually sends harsh sunlight, hot weather, heavy rain, snow, or gushing wind.

This shouldn’t spoil your vacation. Just choose a sturdy weatherproof tent.

There are two basic materials tent manufacturers use: cotton canvas and plastic. There are other hybrids and added coatings, mostly enhancing the weather-proof properties of the material.

Cotton canvas is considered the higher quality option, but it needs a water-resistant coating, and it tends to shrink and leak the first time it gets wet. After that, the fabric becomes closed off, and it shows much better performance during the rain.

Cotton also needs more maintenance and regular cleaning to stay in good shape. This is not the case with plastic coverings, which are usually easy to maintain. Their qualities vary significantly, so you need to know the properties of the tent material in detail.

Appearance

Glamping is all about style and luxury, so being visually pleasing is not the cherry on the cake, it’s the main ingredient that makes all the difference.

These tents usually have them in addition to the basic color variations we usually see. Some tents go for a modernistic look, others go to the other direction with a historic vibe.

They could be designed after a cabin, a mansion, a hemisphere, or any other concept. The important thing is to choose a look that’s meaningful to you.

Ease of Installation

This is one of the most important features in a glamping tent. Travelling and chores isn’t a very nice combo, that’s why instant tents are hugely popular.

A tent that needs more than half an hour to set up, and that has to be erected by more than one person, is not a very good tent, in my opinion.

The parts and tools required for setting up the tent should all be included in the package. Having to stop working on the tent because a screw is missing, is not cool.

The Extras

Some of the options that come with the tent are absolutely necessary, like the removable tarp, and expandable entrance room.

Some are really good to have, like hanging shelves, storage spaces, e-port, and mesh fabric everywhere.

Other extras look nice, but they might not be important to you at all, such as the dedicated pet entrance, when you don’t own a pet.

Bells and whistles are essential in this luxury line.

To Wrap it All Up

I’ve always loved being out in nature, but usually, I went for days on end without sleep because of the bug bites. If you’ve camped outdoors recently you’d know what I mean.

It almost put me off camping until I realized that I could have it all. Many tents are lovely and special, but each one has a drawback.

I believe that the Northwest Enterprises 10-Person Family Cabin Tent is a great tent, with a visually pleasing style, a lot of functionality, and ample modifiable space to fit the whole family in comfort and joy.

Another option is the Oileus Popup Tent. It’s so easy to set up that you don’t even lay a finger in that process. You just unwrap it, untie it, and watch it as it takes shape.

I hope that our list of the 10 best glamping tents was helpful. All you have to do now is to pick the right one and enjoy nature in luxury and style.
