Looking for a tent? if you are not familiar with the materials or brands, it is easy to purchase a tent that meets the number of people with whom you will use the tent.

Then you get the 2-person tents. These are often lightweight tents, but an exception is the side tent. A side tent is usually a small dome tent. If you place this tent for several weeks in a row, it is best to opt for a cotton tent. A 2-person tent is often used for only 1 person.
With a 3-person tent you also have a choice of lightweight tents, but dome tents and tunnel tents are also available for 3 people. There are even 3-person family tents so that you can also stand in the tent.

You see less 5-person tents. However, these are ideal for a family with 1 child. The parents can use the large 3-person sleeping cabin and their son or daughter can use a 2-person sleeping area
6-person tents are the real family tents that are often used for a holiday of several weeks on 1 camping pitch. There are 6-person tipi tents, 6-person inflatable tents, 6-person tunnel tents and also 6-person dome tents. Usually you use a 6 person tent with a family where 2 children go on holiday.
