Inflatable Tents

The other tent that I recommend is the inflatable tents. Doing away with the poles and replacing them with inflatable tubes, allows the tent to go up faster.

Another advantage of this, is that an inflatable tube can be replaced, in the past a broken pole was usually the end of the tent.

These are not as fast as the above tents, but they are more spacious, allowing adults to stand upright, and with many having several sleeping rooms inside, make family wild holidays better.

With practice, and the family joining in, they can go up in perhaps 10 minutes. Essentially you first spread it out, peg it down, and inflate. That is it.

With darkened sleeping rooms and a rapid setup time, this can be quite a palace compared to what existed before. Everything inside is attached to the main tent, so once the shell is up you are done.
