If you want to go all out and bring the entire family check out this monster of a tent:
“When the wilderness calls, a Northwest Territory front porch tent 18′ x 12′ size brings along the amenities of home spaces. With accommodations for up to 10 adults, it provides a retreat that redefines rugged adventures and turns them into luxurious vacations. The entire family, plus some, can sleep and move about comfortably with room to spare. A divider panel provides privacy between two groups while a back door with zipper liner lets those in the rear enjoy a separate entry. Full-size windows around all sides keep fresh breezes flowing while a moisture-repelling top lets you stay dry. A fully enclosed floor to keep the outdoors where it belongs is also removable for cleaning.” Valued at $350 – you may also be able to get this cheaper if you bid on it in a penny auction.
And once you win, while you’re at it you may as well move right in! Ok, not quite, but doesn’t it sound appealing? Especially if a camping companion doesn’t like to rough it out in the woods – this tent will deliver a real glamping style camping experience!
