M2C explains on its website that the main driver behind creating an all-new tent was feedback from consumers. A lot of people liked the idea of modular, interconnectable tents but did not like the Pod tent pricing, which starts at US$625 for the four-person model, as listed today.The Pod was created purely as a larger, more premium offering, so in attempting to bring price down, M2C created a whole new design, aiming the lower pricing and quick, simple set-up at a broader customer base.
It is easy to set up. Once the 10 pegs and tarp are in place then the tent is raised by setting the center pole, after which the 10 lines to the tent pegs can be set. The tent panels are not rigid and will flap in the wind, but having 20 pegs supporting the tent tends to distribute wind load over many points. When I purchased the tent, I set it up in the yard prior to an epic downpour and heavy wind. The tent did moderately leak but not so much as to make it difficult to clean up with a sponge and bucket (both of which I find handy to camp with). Since then I have camped in the tent only once when it rained. Prior to that experience, I had sprayed a 10.5 oz. can of "Kiwi Camp Dry Performance Fabric Protector" on the exterior to waterproof the tent. The can covered eight tenths of the tent before running out.
You will have plenty of room to sleep eight people, and this tent comes with all the standard features like storage pockets. There are also numerous doors and windows for ventilation that help with keeping the tent cool. If you love the look of these tents, but need something bigger, or want to stick with something a little more traditional, I encourage you to click on our article about the best family tents!
Size and weight of your tent are important factors. As well as being able to sleep in your tent, you may also need to allow space for eating and spending time inside when the weather turns against you. You will also need to allow space to store your gear, equipment and food. Many inexperienced campers make the mistake of going for the number of people that a tent can sleep when choosing their tent, but these guides do not allow for any extra space that you may need for moving about, storing stuff, etc., so always check the actual floor space carefully.
Ozark Trail also makes a connect tent that has a canopy built into it. Unlike the first option listed in this article, since the canopy is built in it doesnt have to be purchased separately. Setup is relatively easy. The first thing to setup is the canopy, which is basically locking the poles into the correct connectors. Since the canopy can be big and awkward to move on your own, we do recommend having two people during the setup process.
Both canvas (cotton) tents and tents made from man-made materials such as Nylon, PVC and others have their pros and cons and you will find as many people choosing one as the other for varying reasons. Canvas tents are made of a more breathable material and have god insulating properties, keeping you cooler in hot weather and warmer in cold times. Man-made materials are lighter and easier to handle, but may be less comfortable in very hot situations. They are also often cheaper than canvas tents and have the benefit of being easier to care for. A canvas tent will not take kindly to being packed away damp, developing mould and mildew much more easily than a polyester tent.
