How To: Pick Your Best Family Tent (7-8 Person)
When you're looking to buy a new family tent, there are a few things you should think about first.
Firstly, you need to look at your budget.
The cheapest family tent that OLPRO make is the Wichenford Poled.
The Wichenford 3.0 is our largest Poled tent and is well suited for going away with a large family or a big group of friends. There are 2 large inner tents, one at either end of the tent and a large living space with room for a table in the centre. For that extra bit of room during the nicer weather, two steel poles are included to hold up the door panel to create a canopy. The waterproof Ripstop Polyester with 5,000mm H/H and sewn in groundsheet will keep you warm and dry in all weather. The Tent includes 3 Bedroom Inner tents - one 4 Berth with a removable divider and two 2 Berth Inner Tents all with zip-able doors and fly mesh.
Another thing you might want to consider is how much living space you need.
The tent with the best and biggest living space is the Odyssey.
The Odyssey Breeze by OLPRO is an extra large, inflatable, 8 berth tent with everything you need from a family tent and more. The tent is packed with unique features, including windows in all the panels that fill the tent with light, so you always have a great view. The tent benefits from a large front enclosed canopy with separate groundsheet and a front door panel that can be completely removed. The sleeping pod is made with a darkened material enabling a good night's sleep and the zipped in dividers can be rolled back to make bigger sleeping compartments. A fully sewn in ground sheet keeps all the bugs out. The Odyssey is made from an above standard 150D Oxford, fully waterproof material, with a rating of 5000 Hydrostatic Head and benefits from fully taped seams. The five inflatable beams provide extra stability and extra storm straps are included. The three doors have the benefit of fly mesh screens for added privacy and to protect you from those pesky bugs.
It's important to think about how long you are willing to spend pitching your tent.
The Wichenford Breeze is our quickest tent to pitch, taking just 10 minutes.
The Wichenford Breeze is our largest tent and is well suited for going away with a large family or a big group of friends. There are two bedroom inner tents, one large open one and one with a divider to create two small bedrooms. The Wichenford Breeze has a large living space with room for a table in the centre. For that extra bit of room during the nicer weather, two steel poles are included to hold up the door panel to create a canopy. The waterproof 190T OLTech Polyester with 5,000mm H/H and sewn in groundsheet will keep you warm and dry in all weather. The inflatable beams make pitching this tent a Breeze, only taking 10 minutes to erect, the Wichenford Breeze is much quicker and simpler to pitch than a poled tent. The Tent includes 2 Bedroom Inner tents. 1 x 4 Berth with a removable divider and 1 x 4 Berth large Inner Tent, all with zip-able doors and fly mesh.
Our best family tent to buy for the biggest canopy is our Endeavour 7 person tent.
The Endeavour 7 Berth Family Tent is a spacious, sturdy tent that is ideal for a large family or group of friends. The Tent has a full steel frame that will keep the tent secure in all weathers. It also benefits from a massive living area with three doors and three windows that fill the tent full of light. The bedrooms can sleep seven people and are made up of one two berth inner, one five berth inner that can be split into a three and a two with a divider. The Endeavour has a large canopy attached which is great for relaxing in the outdoors. The Endeavour has fly mesh on all the doors and all the windows can be covered with blinds and has a cable entry point and lantern hook. If you need a tent with lots of space and a unique design this is the tent for you.
And finally, we believe another category to think about is how many bedrooms you would like.
Our Odyssey inflatable tent has 4 double bedrooms. This is the most out of any OLPRO tent. The sleeping pods are made out of a darkened material which is what enables you to have a good night's sleep. The zipped in dividers can also be rolled back to make even bigger sleeping compartments.
We hope you have more of a clear idea of which tent will best fit your family after reading this blog.
