Aug 17, 2007
Whether you are an avid camper or just going for the first time with the family, you will love the pop up tents that are available on the market today. Pop-up tents are the most easily assembled tents to set up, leaving you more time to enjoy the great outdoors. No need to fuss over finding the directions or wondering where the stakes go, just unfold the pre-assembled cords and poles and slip them into the sleeves. From start to finish, these tents can be fully put up in a matter of minutes.

Types of Pop-ups

Hoop tents are perhaps the easiest to set up as some of them have the poles built right in the fabric. They can be held down with nylon rope, pegs, or stakes. With just the flick of a wrist these tents pop-up into full form. The only trouble would be figuring out how to fold it back up, but they come complete with picture-by-picture instructions. These types of tents are not suitable for windy circumstances but are perfect for a quick weekend getaway. The fast assembly allows you to spend more time on your get away than setting up your sleeping quarters.

Ridge tents are the most basic of pop-ups. They are similar to military tents offering ample headroom for a more comfortable sleep. They are also virtually effortless to set up and they are held down with rope and stakes or pegs. These are great for one or two campers and work well for camping with friends in groups as it allows you privacy while not taking up much room for the other tents. These types of tents are also convenient for such group gatherings as sporting events where you would be required to stay outdoors.

Frame Tents are large and roomy and are able to accommodate larger families. These are also made of sturdy frames and are held down with rope and tent stakes. Frame tents can sleep up to as many as ten people and hold your gear as well. Many of these tents come with holes for electrical cords allowing you to have power inside and keep the bugs out and some are even equipped with lights built right in. You can even get one with a storage spot to hold all of your gear in one place allowing you more room to kick back and relax.

Dome Tents are a favorite of families or groups of campers as these types of tents have more than one room and can generally sleep up to 10 people as well. This is great for families as the adults can have their own room as well as the children having their own room. Some even come with a common area such as a screened porch, which allows you to set up an eating or sitting area for the family to gather without the hassle of mosquitoes. These types of tents, like the frame tents, are equipped with a storage space for your gear to help keep it out of the way; and safe.

Pop-up tent campers offer many advantages as you have a complete mini home to travel with. They are perfect for families, offering a mini kitchen, mini bathroom, as well as sleeping spaces that convert to a living room area and/or kitchen.

They save you money on lodging fees and give you the comforts of home including air conditioning as well as your own toilet.
