They have considerable weight and dimensions. It is quite problematic to carry such a load. It is wiser to take such an item if you are going by car.
Big cold weather options are more difficult to set up than small ones. With rare exceptions, large ones are set up by two or more people.
There are many cold weather tents for family camping. They differ in price range, as well as in different characteristics. We provide brief, but necessary information on choosing a suitable variant, which will help you to make a choice when buying.
First of all, you need to pay attention to the stability of the structure. Frame of your shelter must be strong to support big awning. It should not be blown by the wind.
Also you need to know what material was used to sew the awning. Material should be dense.
