That way, you sure that the tent will not be blown away if the wind is too strong or that water will not enter if it rains very hard.
The only way that can happen is if the tent is made of strong materials. The fabric should be made either of nylon or polyester. Between the two, polyester is better since it can withstand UV rays. It should also be breathable so it is not too hot or too cold inside and of course waterproof so you won’t get wet if it rains.
Since most tents have poles to keep it upright, be sure that this is made of aluminum or fiberglass. You can ask the sales assistant about this or read the label which should mention the tent material specifications.
You can find tents for camping in sporting goods store or online. But if you want to test it, you are better off seeing it in person. Should the price be a bit expensive, see if someone on the web is selling it for a more affordable price.
One thing you will notice when looking at the different kinds of tents available is that there are trade-offs between each one. For instance, taller tents although comfortable are not that wind resistant. Shorter tents that can withstand strong winds and are warmer inside may make you feel claustrophobic.
You just have to weigh the pros and cons of each one and then decide which one is best for your camping trip.
Whatever design you decide to bring along for your camping in France, be sure to practice setting it up so you won’t have any problems even when you arrive in the camp ground after dark. If you are doing this for the first time or have other things to bring along and there is not enough space, see if you can borrow one instead.
