larger tents without integrated floors to act as fly tents


  • larger touring tents with floors have a major problem in that the floor is very difficult to ensure it is adequately dry before packing up
  • a solution to this is to use a tent without a floor to essentially provide cover for a smaller 2P tent which does have a floor such as a 2P Mozzie tent or a swag
  • in winter when there are unlikely to be problematic crawling or flying insects, such a tent could be used with a stretcher bed without an inner tent
  • the absence of a floor also means the weight is reduced and allows safer use of a wood stove to make it a hot tents (tents with wood stoves inside), bell tents, yurts and tipi tents
