Hi there, I want to upgrade my 4 person tent to a 6 person tent. In fact, my wife and I sleep there, but we like lots of room and to stand up. I'm thinking about the canvas, but I'm not sure I have room to store a big tent and might be a hassle to set up and dry, etc. ... What is the best quality tent for these common needs?Which one would be a better option.
Look at the height. There's no ultimate specs for manufacturers how large should a tent for six person be, so try before buying. That's a must. After all I'm not trying to sell you anything or recommend a particular brand - but get the biggest tent you can find. Make sure you can stand up straight in it. Not theoretically, just go to the vendor and try it.
For family camping we use Coleman Weathermaster, and that's a small palace (me, wife plus two kids are more than comfortable).
