6 Person Waterproof Windproof Easy Setup Tent

Though roominess is a factor, it’s not the only thing to consider when choosing a family tent. Some 6 person tents are designed more for car camping while some may be more suited for backpacking. Keep reading to find out which type of 6 person tent might be best for your next camping trip.

A six person tent is a tent that can accommodate up to six people. It’s important to keep in mind that not all six person tents are created equally and some might be more spacious than others. Roominess is definitely something to take into account when purchasing a six person tent.

Why get a 6 person tent?

Well, if you intend on having more than two people in your camping party, it is imperative to have enough room for everyone. If you are going with fewer than six people, there is no need to buy a “6 person” tent.

Consider the climate you will be camping in: If you are camping in a colder climate, you will want a tent with thicker walls and a higher fly coverage. This will help keep the cold out and keep you warmer at night. If you are camping in a hotter climate, look for a tent with mesh vents and panels that can be opened up to allow for better air flow. Larger 6 person tents will provide better air flow.

What makes a good 6 person tent?

You might find cheap tents that sound like they would work well for what you want them for but do not be fooled by their low price tag! They may seem like a great deal but they usually do not last very long and will fall apart when wet or windy, and they also likely do not provide the level of protection you would like. Keep in mind that all of our picks for six person tents are going to cost more than a standard two-person tent but the increased cost is due to a more durable build with thicker material, heavier stakes, and a higher fly coverage which means you will spend less on replacements and repairs in the long run.

Get a tent that is easy to set-up and take down: tents these days have become easier and easier to set up, with most of them taking only about 10 minutes or less. Look for one with color coded poles and sleeves as well as clips that easily snap together. You will also want a tent that is easy to take down and store. Many tents now come with their own carrying cases which makes them much easier to transport from your car to the campsite.

Consider your needs: Not everyone needs or wants a six person tent. If you are only going camping by yourself or with one other person, you will not need a large 6 person tent because there simply will be no room for it. Go with something smaller. If you are planning on having two to three people in your camping party, consider getting a 4 person tent that can comfortably fit 3 people.
