Thank you for taking the

Camping Setup Quiz

Congratulations! We have four great camping setup options for you to choose from.

To be honest, your particular combination hasn't registered an individual response so here's a general one. But feel free to re-do the quiz with a slight variation to your entries,

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. 

If 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 four great family camping setups!

Quiz Results: Your Ideal Camping Setups

There are three different styles of camping setups: All-in-one tent and shelter, separate tent and marquee / gazeebo, and a tent with accessories to extend the living room and undercover shelter.

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 aand gear storage. Swags and smaller hiking style tents would work with the tarp as well.

THE TOURER: If funds permit, the touring tent is a great option with the addition of a smaller hiking tent(s) for the kids when they outgrow the family tent. 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.

LARGER ALL-IN-ONE TENTS are less expensive because you avoid the need for a lot of accessories. Styles range from dome to cabin style to these air tents (pictured) which are becoming popular because they are lighter in weight than a framed tent and are quick to pitch.

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 larger families / groups, 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.

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.

Be on the lookout for a special email from yours truly with even more camping tips and ideas.
