I grew up tent-camping. I always thought that RVs were cheating. Now, we live in an RV … and when I mentioned to someone that we were buying a tent to go camping, he said, “but you are already camping!” Funny, huh?
Molly started asking to go camping in a tent, as we were driving north through California in June. She would periodically ask all summer if we could go camping. When we found out about a “Not Back To School” campout, we decided it was time to just do it! We got this 6-person tent at REI, mostly because we love their return policy and customer service. So far, we are very happy!
The kids and I did a practice-set-up at the RV park. Easy-peasy! It does have a rainfly, which we didn’t test at this time.
