5 Items to Buy to Make Pitching and Packing Away Your Tent With Ease
As camping experts here at Attwoolls Outdoors we know a thing or two about pitching and packing away tents. With one of the biggest Tent displays in the UK we have picked up the best tips over the years on how to pitch and packaway your tent easily every time. Read on to find out what you need and why to make your camping trip as smooth as possible.
1 - Footprint
If you’ve purchased a tent recently you’ll know a footprint is a key add on when buying camping gear. Not only does it make a great guide for pitching your tent but it will also protect the fabric underneath your tent from rocks and dirt on the ground. So your tent will less likely need cleaning after every camping trip.
2 - Robust pegs
Having a robust set of pegs for camping is a must. They keep your tent in the ground and can item you can’t live without!. We would recommend steel pegs with a big head so you can easily hammer into rough, uneven ground and not worry about bending or breaking on your trip. We stock a range of Kampa Peg sets online or come into the store to purchase individually.
3 - Mallet
A comfortable and well balanced mallet is a great item to buy when wanting to make pitching your tent easier. If the weather has been hot and the ground is hard then getting pegs into the ground can be tough and a mallet will solve this problem with ease!
4 - Electric Pump
Looking for a hassle free camping trip? Why not consider an electric pump! Taking away the faff of hand pumping and allowing more time to spend with your loved ones, an electric pump is a quick and easy option to get your inflatable tent up with ease.
5 - Peg Puller
Our last item is one for the gadget lovers. A peg puller says what it does on the tin and pulls out your pegs! Easily remove stubborn pegs and pack away your tent in a flash. Checkout the Kampa ‘back saver’ peg extractor here. If you do suffer from back problems and peg pulling is always a chore, this one has an extra long handle to make pulling pegs out easy.
