Did you buy your tent at a department store or other discount retailer? Do you wake up every morning to a shower of condensation that rains down over your family? If you'd bought your family camping tent at an outdoor retailer, you might not have that problem!
Many cheap family camping tents carried in discount department stores don't have any breathable fabric on the inside tent walls, which means that condensation that forms during the night has nowhere to go but down. In addition, the body heat of a camping family can raise the heat inside these tents, making it unbearably hot on summer nights.
So, if you don't want to sleep in a hot tub, check out higher quality family camping tents from an outdoor retailer. Chances are the tent's other components, such as poles and stitched on sleeves or clips will be higher quality, too.
