    Yea! Hammock tent looks exactly like the image i usually get each time i create a mental picture of my desired tent.
    It’ll keep you safe from virtually all potential harm.
    As if that’s not enough, it’s more like a home.

    Some of these are great, but most are really too much even for a car camping. Just as some already said here, if you can’t be without the conviniences of home, camping is probably just isn’t for you. But I hope these still bring some joy and easiness to some people to slowly getting accustommed to the outdoors.
