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. 

For larger groups like yours, a trailer or some additional form of transportation will be needed, but the same setup applies, adjusted as needed for the extra numbers.

So, without further ado, here are your quiz results! And if you have any questions, feel free to let me know.

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.

Given the larger size of your group, you would need additional tents to those depicted below - which could be in the form of two 4-person tents, or a slightly larger main tent with hiking style tents or swags.

If you think you will prefer a larger tent and can dry it at, say, the local park or at family or friends, feel free to retake the quiz selecting the option "space for gear storage and for drying wet tents but nothing else". See further notes below.

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-person tent for sleeping and gear storage. Swags and smaller hiking style tents would work with the tarp as well.

TENT AND MARQUEE/GAZEEBO: Ideal for the larger family, a 4-6 person tent and marquee/gazeebo provides good sleeping arrangements as well as a separate living area that can be closed off with mesh walls to form a screen room or solid walls for protection from the weather. Again, for your larger group, additional hiking style tents or swags would be needed to accommodate everyone.

TENT AND SCREEN ROOM: Ideal for the larger family, the 4-6 person tent and screen room provides good sleeping arrangements as well as a separate living area that can be screen off from the insects. The screen rooms are lighter in weight than the standard marquees. Again, for your larger group, additional hiking style tents or swags would be needed to accommodate everyone.

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.
