Start your list of camping holiday must-haves with a top of the range family tent

As we head into another summer with an underlying uncertainty around travel, a staycation will be a popular choice of summer holiday for families. This will inevitably mean that hotels, B&Bs, chalets, caravan lets and cottage rentals will get booked up very quickly. Why not, then, invest in a family tent that will serve you well, not only for this summer but for many years to come?
A good-sized, quality tent can make the difference between a challenging camping holiday with plenty of frustrations and moaning, and a memorable experience for all.
At BCH Camping, we stock and recommend the Dometic Ascension FTX 601 2021 inflatable tent. As the name suggests, this tent is new for 2021, and it was designed with the large group or family in mind. With the latest air tent technology, it is the perfect practical solution for family holidays.

Why choose an inflatable tent for your camping holiday?

The Dometic Ascension is one of a range of air tents from Dometic.
Inflatable tents have revolutionised camping. High pressure air poles that are readily attached to the tent have replaced the need for metal or fiberglass poles. In the Dometic Ascension, the Air Frame technology combined with multi-inflation points allow the tent to be set up quickly and easily.
If you’re a first time camper, a hassle-free air tent is an ideal choice as there is no experience necessary for setting it up. Alternatively, if you’re a seasoned pro at camping you will appreciate the quality and advantages of the latest technology and materials.
Despite what you may think, inflatable tents are sturdy and reliable even though they have no metal poles. You will have no concerns about being swooped up in a bad bout of weather!
