Is it colder to sleep in a car or a tent?
Tents are smaller in volume which means they can get warmer faster plus they have double the insulation. They also happen to be made of specific fabrics that keep it from getting as cold as the aluminum your car is made from. In short, it’s warmer to sleep in a tent.
Can you sleep in a parked car?

Do I have to put a tarp under my tent?
You do not have to have a tarp under your tent but it is highly recommended. Having a tarp under your tent can prevent holes and tear from appearing on the bottom of the tent as well as prevent moisture from the ground from soaking into your tent.
What should you not keep in a tent?

Hang these clothes in plastic bags away from your tent together with the other supplies [source: Sanders].
What to wear to sleep while camping?
Wear dry clothing. A good sleepwear choice while camping is clean long underwear, top and bottoms, plus clean socks. Avoid overdressing before you hop into your bag. Wearing bulky clothing inside a bag can actually reduce the bag’s ability to efficiently trap body heat.
