Have I told you about our new tent? Our new camping tent ROCKS! We named it the BAT because it is a Big Butt Tent. Of course, Coleman® doesn’t call it the BAT. Coleman calls it the Coleman Prairie Breeze™. I guess that’s a nice tranquil name. But did I mention that it is a 9 person tent? Well, nine people in a tent does not sound tranquil to me. They must be tiny people to sleep in the tent.
Our family purchased the BAT in the Spring. Prior to that, we had been camping for years in a good, sturdy tent. The previous tent had a screened in porch and 2 rooms for sleeping, although we always used it as 1 room. I believe the tent was supposed to sleep 6 campers. While the old tent was perfect for our family at the time, our family has grown over the years and we needed a bigger tent. And with the Coleman Prairie Breeze, bigger is exactly what we got!
Our tent is SO BIG…
(How big is it?)
Our tent is so big, that the last time we went camping, we met a cool, camping mama named Patti. Patti had her large RV with satelite dish parked in the campsite beside our campsite. On the other side of her, was another large RV which belonged to her friends. When we met Patti, do you know what she said?
“Wow, now that is a big tent!”
Our tent is SO BIG… that my husband who is 6 ‘3″ can stand up and not hit his head on the ceiling fan.
Yeah, baby! Our tent has a ceiling fan/light combo hanging from the ceiling. Do you know what is even cooler than a ceiling fan/light combo? The light switch by the door that controls the ceiling fan/light combo.
That’s right, the BAT has cool, camping accessories.
Our tent is SO BIG… that it holds 2 queen size air mattresses and a pack-and-play and still has lots of room left over. This extra space is great for things like walking, backpacks, and other camping accessories.
So, if you see a family with lots of kids and the Big Butt Tent, grab some marshmallows and skewers and come on over!
I’ll see ya by the campfire!
