Buying Guide of 10 to 20 Person Tent
Firstly, you have to consider the size, which means asking how many people it is accommodating in sleep, because sleeping takes up way more space, or how many cars you are fitting if you are buying for a car park. Will the height of the tent be tall enough for your friends or car? Secondly, are you camping in a predictable weather? If the weather is not too much to handle, you can save up some cash and still have yourself a nice camping tent.
Otherwise, get a certain and sturdy one. The rest are smaller things like how many private rooms you are looking for, how many convenient doors, plus gear and stuff storage.
