We cannot deny that among the most popular outdoor activities for family, camping is the cheapest way to have the relaxing time together with other members. However, it is not cheaper much as you can find on the market, some kinds of tents have the prices up to hundreds of dollars. Choosing the best budget family tent especially for those families who have the tight budget is not easy.
1. Hunting for the discount products
Usually, in the end of a year or during the off season, many stores start to offer some discount prices on camping gear or camping equipment. You can wait till this period of time to catch the chance of shopping a camping tent in good deals.
2. Shopping at the affordable store instead of the sporting goods department
With a tight budget, let’s say no with the expensive and senior sporting departments and start looking for an ordinary store. You will be amazed to find out that almost the camping equipment here is much cheaper, at least two or even three times than in those departments.
Also, you can search for the websites online that specialize in selling camping supplies such as tents, sleeping bags, camping mats, so forth and so on with very good prices, but the quality is very awesome as they do not have to pay extra taxes like the stores or sporting goods departments. Moreover, sometimes these websites also offer discounts.
Besides, you can choose to buy a second hand family camping tent with an incredible price. However, you should check it carefully before making a decision in case the quality is too poor to use, how waterproof of it or there might be some tears.
If your family occasionally organizes a camping trip, you can use this way. By renting the camping tent, you can save a lot of money than buying a new one. This method is especially suitable for those families who do not have storage for tents or free spaces to store the tents at home.
In some campsites, they do offer the service of “tents for rent”. You can choose the best suitable one for your family and enjoy the camping holidays.
However, with families whose house have enough free spaces to store a camping tent, it is encouraged to buy a cheap tent for your own because even though its quality is may not as high as the expensive one, if you know how to preserve it well, you can use it for long time.
Another tip for when buying the camping tent as well as the camping equipment is that you can buy the essential one first such as: the camping tent, the sleeping bags… and then purchase the other gear gradually like mats and rugs as the finances allow.
