Why Buy a Tent Package?
Tent Packages ….
Comprising …. ( Camping Tent , Carpet and Footprint supplied as a package) very often you’ll find that retailers (including IBEX Camping ) will offer a Special Promotional Price or Discount when you purchase your Tent and accessories all at the same time.
Your family camping Tent can be a big investment that should bring you years of enjoyment and help create some happy Family memories , so the addition of a Tent Carpet and Footprint Groundsheet have add a little more comfort and help extend the lifetime of your tent.
Tent Carpets are usually made to measure – just the living area of your tent (excluding the Bedrooms) they offer a little more comfort underfoot , protect the groundsheet from traffic wear and tear and can also add a little more insulation – be aware though … lift your Tent Carpet regularly throughout your camping trip and in good time before packing your tent away to allow any trapped condensation to escape , this is particularly important in Tents with Sewn in Groundsheets.
Footprint Groundsheets – an extra groundsheet made to measure the footprint of your tent – expect it to fit the Tent Groundsheet , it may not include extra’s such as porchways and canopies. More than just a Tarpaulin … Footprint Groundsheets have very often been made in the same or upgraded fabric as your tent groundsheet and will feature pegging points to correspond or avoid any necessary tent pitching pegging points. Great for marking your pitch , Footprint Groundsheets can be a great tool when it comes to pitching , allows you to judge your space without having to re-pitch the tent. Of course , your going to have glorious weather during your trip, using a Footprint groundsheet allows the groundsheet of your tent to stay clean should the odd shower occur! this is particularly important with Sewn in groundsheet tents with the potential to fold canvas onto dirty Groundsheets.
Buying the same year as you purchase your tent is quite important too …. most of our great suppliers have a back stock of previous year accessories but these can be a little difficult to source, so if your looking forward to years of family holidays in the Tent it may be an idea to purchase any accessories in the same season.
