## Should I get a 4 or 6-person tent?

You’ll find a 4-person tent will be more comfortable for two people, and you will have space to spread out and store your gear too. For a family of four, I recommend a 6-person tent. As a rule-of-thumb buy a tent that has a capacity rated two people higher than the number that will actually be using it.

## How do you pick the right size tent?

Make sure there’s 30 square feet (2.8 square meters) of space per person. Think about how many people you camp with, how long you usually camp for, and what you’ll need to do in the tent. It’s recommended that the tent you choose provides at least 30 square feet of space for each person in the tent.

## Is a 6 person tent too big?

It’s certainly bigger than you really need. Probably. A general rule of thumb is you should put 1 less person than what the tent is rated for in the tent, so there’s room for rbekr gear. So a 6-person tent would be good for 4 or 5 people.

## Is it worth buying an expensive tent?

Most of the time, there’s no need to buy an expensive tent. As long as you choose something with a decent level of quality, something in the middle price range is sufficient for the vast majority of campers. The only exception to this might include tents for those who camp very heavily or are frequent backpackers.

## Does a 6 person tent actually fit 6 people?

Yes, 6 children could probably fit inside of a 6 person tent, but with sleeping pads, backpacks, shoes, sleeping bags, clothes, etc. even they will be cramped.

## Why are Coleman tents so cheap?

Coleman tents are cheaper than other leading brands due to the lightweight and inexpensive materials used to make the tents. Using polyester fabrics instead of nylon can make the tent much cheaper to produce and sell.

## Does a 4 person tent really fit 4 people?

If we know that 25 square feet is the ideal space for an adult, a 4 person tent can barely fit 2 adults on average. While you shouldn’t count on a 4 person tent to house 4 adults, a family of 2 adults and 2 small kids is doable. However, we highly recommend sticking to a 4 person tent for 2 people or less only.

## Is an 8 person tent too big?

Typically, an 8-person tent will have a single main area or room, and a one to three side-rooms. Of course, as we discussed earlier, this size can theoretically sleep 8, but it’d be a tight fit for any measure of comfort, you’re better off with six people, and if you really want to enjoy, four is even better.
