Trailer Tent Hire

Trailer Tent Hire

If you are currently trying to decide between hiring a tent or a caravan for your vacation this summer, then perhaps the answer is a trailer tent. A trailer tent is simply a large tent that is stored in a trailer that you can easily tow from place to place.


It allows you to experience camping as you only can when in a tent but at the same time offers all the space of a caravan. For those new to the subject however, there are a few things that need to be considered before choosing the trailer tent that you hire.

A simple mistake that many people make is that they forget to consider how powerful there car is. Although trailer tent hire requires a far less powerful car than if you were to choose caravan hire, it does still require more power than all cars have. Therefore you need to make sure that you inform the trailer tent hire company if you have a car that isn't all that powerful. If your car is not powerful enough, it is not only dangerous but also illegal. The next thing that you should consider is the size that you require. From previous experience I would strongly advise that you hire a trailer tent that is at least one size bigger than the amount of people you intend on accommodating. While the UK is a beautiful country to go camping in, it does unfortunately get a lot of rain. If you are going to be stuck inside for a long period of time, that extra space can be the difference between a peaceful day playing cards and a day full of arguments and bad moods.

Another thing that needs to be considered is how easy it is to set up. Some trailer tents are notoriously difficult to set up due to the fact that the manufacturers tried to fit as much living space as possible into a trailer that is as small as possible. Therefore if the trailer tent hire company has a show room it can be a good idea to witness the model being set up before parting with your hard earned cash. The last thing that you need to remember is that it is always safest to hire a trailer tent from a reputable company than the cheapest one that you can find. By hiring a trailer tent you will always be saving money over a hotel, but go too far and you could be living somewhere very uncomfortable for your week away.

So in conclusion, I am a big fan of trailer tent hire and I feel that they offer campers a unique alternative to more traditional forms of camping hire. Provided you are careful about the above points, then you should be able to easily find a trailer tent that will provide you and your family with a safe and comfortable temporary home.
