If you’re in the market for a screened dining tent, there are a few things that you’ll want to consider before you buy. Here are a few things to consider.

1. Will I be moving the tent from one place to another?
Many people buy a screened dining tent for use at home. This is an ideal opportunity to purchase a larger sized dining tent that won’t be moved often. Select a large enough tent for the area that you’ll be using it in and go for as high of quality as possible. Zippered sides will be ideal for a dining tent that isn’t going to be moved often.

2. Portability is a must if you’re going to be using it on camping trips.
If you’re planning to take your dining tent with you on camping trips you’re going to want to consider portability. You’ll want something that breaks down and sets up easily. Consider velcro straps to secure the sides and things that won’t break easily. Poles should completely collapse in order to pack it in the travel case.

3. Always purchase the best tent that you can afford.
You’ll want to consider quality when you’re purchasing a dining tent. The higher quality that you can afford, the better. You get what you pay for. You’ll want to ensure that the seams are secure and that nothing is unraveling. Many screened dining tents also have flooring just as a regular tent. This is very helpful when you’re in an area that doesn’t have soft grass or sand. Consider a top that is opaque in lieu of a mesh top so that you won’ t have so much of the weather bearing down on you.

Following these easy tips will help you to find the best possible screened dining tent for your specific needs.
