15 Jun Looking at Portable Cabin Camping Choices
When most people think of going camping, they think about one of two kinds. Tent camping and trailer camping. One of the newest styles of camping is what is called portable cabin camping. Let’s look at the difference about these three styles and why portable cabins are on the rise in popularity.
The tent is the most common style of camping, and probably known as the pioneer of camping itself. There are all kinds of tents available ranging in price and materials used to make them. Some tents even have divided rooms that will let you have bedroom like privacy. Of course, the sound proofs in a tent, well, let’s all agree that there isn’t any. One other major problem with tents is keeping it insulated for warmth and/or cold. With a basic R-rated insulation of 0 it’s hard to do. However, with tent camping you do get the feeling you are one with nature. For that reason alone, many people choose tent camping. Tent camping also gives you the freedom to set up camp any place you like and still be protected from the weather somewhat. It’s also very easy and light to carry.
Now let’s look at camper trailers and camping. This is the one of the most popular forms of camping in the world. The camping trailers alone are mini-homes on wheels. You have several style of camper trailers such as pop-up, They are equipped to sleep many people in a small, compact area and still have the functionality of a home. With camping trailers having a great R-value for heating and cooling, most are equipped with such items like a furnace and ducted air conditioning. These kind of travel trailers also have self holding tanks built in them for drinking water, waste water (also known as grey water) and tanks to hold septic waste. Camp grounds that you want to go camping with this style of camper have many amenities for them. Most places have what is called full hook up for camping. This allows you to hook the drinking water, sewage and the electric straight up to the camper itself so you won’t have to use the holding tanks or batteries power for the electric. They may also have just electric sites for less money per night. Each camp ground is different and you must ask each place what they have to offer. With this style of camping most people will agree that it’s pretty simple but enjoyable to do. That is why it’s so popular with families to use this form of camping.
Portable camping cabins are on an all time demand lately. Most portable cabins are prefabricated and built on a solid frame. However, these cabins have come a long way since they were first introduced. Maybe that’s the reason for the demand. The low cost of these cabins also plays a role in the popularity. There are several style and forms of portable camping cabins ranging from smaller than 100 square feet to much larger in size having amenities like home as well. They also have fold out style camping cabins that are built just as rugged as the prefab cabins. You can even learn how to build one yourself. People may ask, why not just buy a camper trailer to use? Good question. The portable camping cabins are made to be used in a more rugged terrain and can handle harsh elements of the weather better than the average camper trailer. This style of camping is getting popular with hunting and fishing sports people doing deep woods or undeveloped areas of the country. They can pack a lot more amenities and gear for longer stays. With the fold out style camping cabins being more rugged and sleek in design, they are also able to get a lot closer to the hunting or fishing area to set up camp. This allows them to have a better chance of getting their prize game before someone else does.
