The Best Kinds of Cheap Camping Tents

You don't have to spend a lot of money one your camping gear in order to get high quality stuff that will last a long time. In fact, many of the cheap camping tents are much more durable and comfortable than the more expensive options. You just need to decide first the exact size and weather rating you're looking for. When you know that, you can get a great tent for as little or as much as you are willing to spend.

The average tent is a three or four person style that is rated for 3 seasons. In other words, you can't use these during the winter and expect to stay comfortable. For serious campers, there are 8, 10, and 12 person tents that can be used year round. If you are a casual camper, then it doesn't make much sense to get the larger types or the ones that are rated for winter weather. Still though, if you would rather be prepared, you can get the 4 season types for cheap too.

The key to getting a tent for less is buying one during the winter. The prices shoot up during the spring and summer, because businesses know that is when most people will camp. They don't sell a lot of the 4 season types during this time because people are only concerned with getting a tent that they will use once during the summer. Because of this, the prices of the tents with winter ratings drop, and you can even find them for less than the standard types. Either way, you will have an opportunity to save a lot of money.

So what should you expect to spend for the best cheap camping tents? You can get a nice 8 person style from Coleman for less than $100 if you get it during the winter, and you can get a three room, 8 person types from Suisse Sport for under $50. If you want to spend even less than that, you can find multiple options from Kelty during the winter that will be between $20 and $30. You really should never have to spend much more than $100, even if you are buying one for the spring or the summer.
