Travel Tips: Carrying Your Beach Tent


Going to the beach is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and spend quality time with your family. Nature is everywhere, so you can travel anywhere for your camping or beach trip. You can journey to a national park, drive to a local campground, or pitch a tent to a lovely beach. So you’ve decided to go camping. Perhaps you’re pulling a travel trailer but you don’t want too much baggage. All you need is a sleeping bag and a tent.

Read on the following tips below on how to transport your camping bags and foldable beach tent safely.

  • Select the appropriate tent for your trip

Choosing the right tent for your trip is the first thing to do. You have to consider what the expected weather condition in the target location and how many members are expected to stay in the tent. You can choose from three-season and four-season tents. Four-season tents are heavier than three-season tents because they have more poles than three season tents to help them withstand wind and snow fall. For fair weather campers a three-season tent is ideal for you.

  • Traveling truck

Now that you have decided what type of tent are you going to bring, now it’s time to decide the truck you are going to use. If you are going to use a foldable beach tent, you can use a van or a car because it is so portable and light that it can be packed on a single bag. It does not also need too many members to set it up because in just a tick, it will pop up like a magic. But if you are bringing canopy tents to contain larger amount of people, you need a larger automobile that has a carrier to separate the members of the trip from the tent and luggage for safety purposes.

  • Pack the tent properly

Before you go, make sure all the parts of the tent are complete before you pack them in the car or else imagine yourself staying inside an incomplete tent. For foldable beach tents or pop up beach tents, make sure they are properly packed to avoid it from popping up during travel especially when they are just placed inside the car together with the members just like any other bags. If you are bringing a larger tent, separate the place of the tent from the seats of the members in the truck to avoid accidents. Better place it in the luggage compartment or in the upper carrier.
