I started the trip with a classic dome tent. It was only a few weeks before I decided I wanted a tent with more space. Most importantly, one I could stand up in. I opted for REI’s Kingdom 4.

My thoughts:

  • Size – The footprint has fit into every campsite. The height allows me to stand up. and the area is a luxury, especially on rainy days when you spend a lot of time inside of the tent.
  • Set-up – I have no problem setting this tent up on my own. I’ve gotten it down to a system. I recommend watching YouTube videos as the instructions can be confusing. Make sure to do a dry run before setting it up on your camping adventure. It helps to go into the trip with some confidence
