What should I look for when buying a new camping tent?

Here are some of the best tips of buying a new camping tent that is very convenient and enduring that can stand the test of time.
• Aluminium poles – these are more convenient to use because they do not break easily like the fiber glass that is very vulnerable.
• Big rainfly – this is the umbrella of the tent. Make sure that the umbrella is big. The bigger the rainfly, the better. This is also waterproof.
• Folded seams and double stitching – see to it that the material used has a double stitch in order to avoid leaking
• One piece tub floor – see to it that the tub floor of your tent is waterproof and it should be a few inches up before sown on the wall of the tent.
• Sufficient guy lines- make sure that the guy lines are complete in order to have an intact tent. It is not comfortable to sleep in a tent that is not anchored and that is disturbed by the wind.
• High quality stake loops – these are used in every corner of the tent and the center of each side. This prevents the tent from being flown by the wind.
• Noseeum meshing – this is where you can put your trash and keep those nasty bugs out.
• Tent with roof vent – this for fresh air when you are inside the tent. It also removes the condensation inside the tent.
• Heavy-duty zippers – you will be coming in and out of the tent so make sure that you have the best zippers so that it will not be destroyed.
