Reasons to Buy a Tent Carpet or Rug

Jan 15, 2021

I’ve never had a tent carpet before so why do I need one now?  That’s what I thought before I took one away with me for my family tent, now I won’t go camping with out one!

Here are a few reasons why you should consider buying a tent carpet.


The main benefit of a tent carpet or rug is the extra comfort it brings to your living area.   You will really notice the difference when you get up in the morning and put your feet down onto a nice soft carpet rather than a cold groundsheet.  It also softens any bumps in the ground and provides a comfortable play area for the kids.


Although having a sewn in groundsheet and footprint groundsheet will help with insulation, heat can still be lost into through the floor.  A tent carpet will provide an additional layer of insulation that will help keep the whole tent warmer.


A tent carpet protects your groundsheet from damage.  This can be as simple at your chair and table legs putting weight on the groundsheet and leaving marks.  A tent carpet will protect the groundsheet from damage by giving it an extra layer of protection.


A tent carpet will significantly soften the rustling noise from the groundsheet, making for a much more peaceful environment for everyone.
