These durable bell tents are quick to set-up and are fairly compact enough bring in more any vehicle.

How Many People Can Fit In A 5M Bell Tent?

Technically this is an 8 person tent. However, 4 people could fit in a 5M bell tent if they are sleeping on beds or cots. Assume that 8 people could sleep on the ground comfortably, and easily stand up. These tents are capable of holding 2 queen sized beds.

Are these tents for all 4-seasons?

The durable canvas and shape of these tents make them great for all seasons. Since the tents are waterproof, the rain is not a concern. Because of the shape, these 8-person tents are wind resistant in 45+ mph gusts. When it comes to snow, you will want to monitor the tent and remove any accumulations so that the center pole does not get damaged. Using a wood stove inside of the tent will help the snow melt off.

What Features Are Important with a 8-person tent?

  • Ease of Set-up – Setting up and striking camp should not be a burden.
  • Water Resistance - 8 people don't want to get wet inside of the tent!
  • Rainfly compatible - To help protect the canvas from trees, birds, and heat.
  • Multiple ventilation points - Lots of windows and a mesh door to help keep cool on warm days and to help minimize condensation.
  • Headroom – Crawling around inside of a tent isn’t comfortable. Make sure there is room to stand up so everyone can easily move about.
  • Price – You get what you pay for (as they say), so make sure that your investment will meet your expectations.

Do these tents come camp ready?

Yes! Our 8 person tents include everything you'll need, right out of the box. However you will need to bring your own hammer for the ground stakes. The floor is water proof, however we'd suggest laying down a tarp to keep the floor clean - making it easier to pack your tent away.
