Tarp Tips #11
What Sized Tarpaulin To Get?
So you’ve decided
to get a tarpaulin. You’ve tried the gazebo and it was a fail…
It toppled and
blew across the campsite (nearly taking out your neighbours) and finally
buckled and bowed under the weight of the down-pour overnight!
Now, the only
question left is:
tarp should you get?
To answer this question, there are a series of important
thing to consider in order to avoid making the wrong choice.
Where are you camping?
- Are there restrictions on the camp
- Does the ground allow for tarp set
- Can I get a tarp into and out of
the site easily
How many campers are in the group?
- Are you covering the tents only
- Are you setting up a communal area
- Are you covering the entire site –
tents and cooking / communal areas
What sized tent / trailer do you have?
- Is your tarp purely to protect your
tent / camper trailer
- What is the max height / length of
your set up and is it centred
- What does your set up look like
under a tarp (draw it out)
What sheltered outdoor options (if any) are you
- Are you creating sheltered kitchen
& cooking areas
- When it rains, do you want a
comfortable space outside of the tent
- Do you want areas protected from wet
and heat for dining and gear storage
What extra gear do you have?
- Where will you store bikes,
activities, games sets
- Where can you set up and store your
favourite camping chair and fishing rods
- Where will you stack tubs, bags,
trolleys until pack up day
How confident am I in setting up a tarp?
- Have I thought about the set-up
- Do I have all the equipment required
for a solid and functional tarp set up
- How will I position my campsite for
the best protection \ views \ experience
just a few of the considerations to take into account when looking to buy a
tarpaulin camping shelter solution.
