Thank you for taking the
Camping Setup Quiz
Congratulations! We have four great camping setup options for you to choose from.
But firstly, the purpose of this quiz is to show you the types of camping setups we think we can help you to put together, especially if you are a family or group of up to five wishing to camp without the need for a trailer. If you have one, that's fine, but you may not need one.
As you are new to camping, this is an ideal opportunity for you to start building up the kind of camping setup that will give you many happy years of camping.
So, without further ado, here are your quiz results! And if you have any questions, feel free to let me know.
Quiz Results: Your Ideal Camping Setups
With limited space at home, your camping setup will be limited to tents that are easier to dry in smaller spaces - that is smaller tents for up to around 4 people.
But the great news is, smaller tents have a lot going for them, and in fact are our personal choice as you can see in The Tourer image of our personal setup below. See further notes.
If you think you will have space to dry your tent, such as a friends house or a local park, then feel free to re-run the quiz selecting the option "space for gear storage and for drying wet tents but nothing else".
TENT AND MARQUEE. If space is limited, this is a great little setup for a small group. Add side walls to the marquee for some weather protection, and you have a very economical setup that will be easy to dry out in small properties.
THE TOURER: If funds permit, the touring tent is a great option. It's a bit more costly with all of the accessories but worth it if you want the flexibility of a quick setup for short stops but something more comfortable for longer stays.
TARP AND TENT: A great budget setup is the tarp and tent. All you need is the tarp and 6 poles together with a 4-6 person tent for sleeping and gear storage. Swags and smaller hiking style tents would work with the tarp as well.
TARP AND TENT: This setup has a very large tarp sheltering the whole tent area, including overhead (although try to avoid tying them to the trees). Again, swags and other smaller tents would work instead of a much larger and harder to dry tent.
Notes and suggestions
You will note I have included higher and lower budget options because often budgets change when you can see what is possible. Either camping isn't as expensive as you originally thought, or alternatively, you can buy better quality gear with more confidence having see what is possible.

And How We Can Help You Further
Camping Trailer Free
A big part of what we offer here at SetToCamp.com is around camping trailer free, especially for families of up to 5. Because not everyone has the option, or wants to, tow something in order to have a memorable family camping experience. Even if you have a trailer or caravan, sometimes it's nice to leave it behind and lighten up!
That said, there is something here for ever family new to camping, big or small, trailer or no trailer.
So, if you want to schedule a call with me, I'll help you map out a plan going forward. We can delve more into what's getting in your way, how spot on the quiz was in terms of your ideal camping setup, whether trailer free camping would be right for you and if not what next.

Meet Jo Simon
Hi there, I hope this camping setup quiz has inspired you to get out there and go camping.
I started this website with the view to help break down the barriers to camping for urban families for whom trailers and caravans are not an option. More and more families are living in urban environments, but over 90% of camping families tow something. So there are a lot of "would be" camping families who are not camping.
If you are one of them, then you are absolutely in the right place. Check out my programs and sign up if, for a relatively small fee, you want to go with a tried and tested solution and save many hours of your time, and hundreds of dollars, if not more. Because there is so much more in there than what you see above.
I look forward to seeing you on the inside.
