When is a 6-person tent smaller or larger?

When you expect to explore outdoors and sleep on the wild on a tent with the whole family, you may wonder if a 6-person tent is enough. A 4-person tent may be small while an 8-person tentis just wonderful space for extra movements and other activities, such as guitar jamming inside before you sleep, different capacity tents all differ in price.

If you are a budget conscious mom or a dad on stiff accounts, you may settle for the actual number of your family.

A 10-person capacity tent may still be feasible if you have really a large family member, say 8 to 10 members, including mom and dad or if some relatives or friends want to join the camp. A 6-member family without expecting some relatives or friends to join them on the vacation may settle for this capacity if you don’t want extra cost to purchase a tent.

Average families across North America have about 3 to 5 members, buying a tent with capacity above the actual intended use, or roughly 70-80 percent, is advised by experts to compensate for unforeseen events of additional companion and gears.

The experts are quite right; you don’t travel with just the exact amount for fares, so they say. What we are pointing out is that, you may opt for a bigger capacity than you actually need. The 6-person tent just fits the standard family size.
