When you are camping

Why is it wet inside my tent?

- Experience and testing show that this is probably condensation. Our polyester tent fabric features a waterproof coating on its inner surface. Moisture condenses out of the warm inner air when it meets the cold surface and a substantial amount of water can be produced depending on factors such as weather conditions and the number of campers in the tent. Modern, fully sealed tents are more prone to the appearance of condensation but the problem can be alleviated by opening the ventilation panels and doors.

- To rule out a leaking seam, thoroughly check each sewn area and ensure the tape used is in good order. Repairs can be made using a seam sealer.

Can I use my cooker/stove inside?


Using a stove or barbecue inside of homes, vehicles, tents, or caravans carries the risk of injury, fire and carbon monoxide poisoning (CO).

Never burn charcoal inside of homes, vehicles, tents, or caravans. Charcoal should never be used indoors, even if ventilation is provided. Since charcoal produces carbon monoxide until the charcoal is completely extinguished, do not store the grill indoors with freshly used coals.

Use only battery operated camping equipment, such as flashlights or lanterns inside the tent. When cooking, keep a fire extinguisher within reach.
