Family tent campers, do you use a screen?


For those of you on the ground, anyone use a screen area. Either separate or attached to the tent for the kids to play in if the weather is bad.


No screen, but I do typically travel with an ez-up to provide some extra shelter. We're in an REI Kingdom 8 (family of 4, two kids under 5) and for now there's enough interior room in the tent for when we've had to shelter in the tent too.

We had an Eriba Troll just before and after our lil one could crawl which was a bit tight, and we set up some windbreaks around the door outside as a corral for him and the dog to have some freedom without entirely needing our attention.
