I’ve been watching this project for a while now: the Internet’s favourite outdoorsperson, Camper Christina, has been showing off her new, home-made hot tent on her Facebook page and at outdoor shows across Ontario for a couple months now, and she has finally revealed all in a three-part video series on her YouTube Channel!
I’m super excited to get some real winter camping in but my big hold-up is a nice hot tent: they’re crazy expensive. With most models well over $1,000, and many much, much more than that, a hot tent cant be a real barrier for those of us who like to camp on a budget!
Camper Christina’s homemade hot tent came in at under $600, making it a pretty solid bargain especially considering the size! I mean, I supposed if you factor in the 40-45 hours of time it takes to construct the math might look a bit different, but whos’s counting?
Even though I had made 2 homemade hot tents previously, I wanted to make a bigger hot tent and show the how to of how it was made. This new homemade hot tent would be able to accommodate myself and my friends on a winter backcountry camping trip, or provide space and comfort while winter campground camping etc. Here is the video series showing in detail, how I made a bigger hot tent. I hope you enjoy the series and please let me know if you have any questions. Cheers!Camper Christina
