Checklist For Camping Pavilions

Enough Space
  • Camping pavilions provide additional storage space or places to stay
  • Mostly square and available in different sizes (approx. 2 to 5 square meters)
  • Some variants have side walls with windows and entrances, which can be adjusted individually. This is often reminiscent of a large tent.
Wind and Weather
  • There are different variants
  • In contrast to pavilions without flexible side walls, there are also those that protect against wind by means of side panels
  • They provide protection from the sun and rain. Note here that if necessary, all those present can also find space under the pavilion
  • Pavilions can usually be assembled and disassembled, so they complement garden parties, picnics or camping trips in a variety of places
  • However, the packing size and weight is usually quite high, as camping gazebos must not be too light if they are to be stable and weatherproof if necessary
  • There are also lightweight gazebos, such as the Rockford gazebo by JUSTCAMP from our product recommendations. It weighs under 5kg and is 280 x 280 x 190cm with a pack size of 60 x 14 x 14cm. So there are also lightweight variants, but you have to pay special attention to them.
