There are so many uses for a screened tent that it is hard to know where to start. Not only are they an advantage when the mosquitoes are in season but they can protect your camping furniture as well. a screened tent will keep the sun off on the hot days and give the family a place to enjoy the rain without getting wet.
Shopping for a screened tent can take you down a rabbit hole if you’re not careful. There are just so many models to choose from. A lot can depend on the size of your camping group or family. If you’re camping with a group and everyone come to your campsite for meals you will need a bigger screened tent than most. It also matters what you’re camping in. People in a big RV will probably need less square footage in their screened room than people who are camping in a tent. The people in a tent will probably spend more time outside and need the added cover from the elements.
Once you determine the size you need be sure to check the quality of construction. Check the seams for a tight seal and that there are no gaps. Check the zippers for ease of use making sure they don’t catch or snag when you use them. Be sure the mesh is small enough to keep out insects and grab some extra stakes and poles so you have replacement parts when you need them.
We hope your camping stay is great for everyone and that lots of fun family stories are told inside your screened tent. Being together is what it’s all about.
