When you shop for discount camping equipment, it's paramount that you shop with a reputable dealer. Just because the prices are reasonable, doesn't mean you're getting the best equipment value for the money.
When you shop online, it's essential to know who you're dealing with and how long they have been selling to the public. Use a camping checklist to make sure you don't forget anything while you shop online, and the process will be even easier.
Use a dealer who has been in business for a while, and has a good reputation. They should also carry well known outdoor camping equipment brands, and their staff should be able to answer any questions you have about the equipment.
You should also check out their policies on returns. What happens if you use your tent for one trip, and one of the tie-downs rips, or the flaps come off? A reputable discount camping equipment dealer will take care of these problems, while another might not.
Have to say that the Sierra Trading post tip about camping food is really brilliant. Hadn't thought of grilling food when camping - but have seen so many others doing just that.
