in search of the perfect shelter for a 2P inner tent


  • for car camping for 1-2 people, one of the best shelters is a shelter which will fit a 2P inner tent nicely whilst giving lots of amenity, being relatively light, easy to set up, and weatherproof
  • this is a page dedicated to my search for the perfect shelter


  • should be under 15kg and pack relatively small
  • should be easy to set up and take down
  • should be tall enough to stand in
  • should have plenty of room for a 2P inner tent
  • should be weatherproof preferably 3000mm PU or more
  • should have lots of windows, doors and ventilation options
  • preferably should be able to be used as a gazebo as well
  • windows should have an internal blind that rolls closed from the bottom for maximum privacy and vision options
  • should be versatile
  • preferably should be freestanding
  • should be 3.5-5m long and/or wide (larger is getting too hard to pitch or find a suitable site as well as too hard to dry out)
  • should be able to use a wood stove inside comfortably and safely - hence the floor should be detachable
  • a clear TPU or PVC window or door is a bonus
