As if camping could not possibly get any better? I NEED this tent in my life!
Thanks to a company based in Ohio known as SmithFly we can all now sleep in a tent, ON THE WATER. Yes, you read that correctly, I said on the water. It is called the Shoal Tent and measured from outside to outside it is roughly eight foot by eight foot.
This tent is easy to store and only weighs about 74 pounds, which is not that much considering what it can do. While the company has come up with a catchy slogan for the tent, you don’t need it to know this is a marvelous creation. This floating tent is without a doubt one of the most interesting things I have ever seen. The structure itself can even withstand high winds and requires no poles.
With this tent, you can truly sleep under the stars in the best way possible. While they are not yet in stock they will be soon in late December and early January. You can pre-order one by clicking here. They are actually not as expensive as you might think they are either. One tent costs around $1,499.
The description for this tent on their website reads as follows:
70% of the earth is covered with water, now you camp on it!
Introducing the Shoal Tent, a first of it’s kind inflatable floating raft with a tent topper that allows you to sleep out on the water. Camp on your favorite farm pond, saltwater flat, spring creek or eddie on your favorite river.
The world is your waterbed.
Sleep under the stars, on the water, feel the flow and let it lull you to sleep.
There are no tent poles, the tent structure is totally inflatable and when inflated stands up to high winds without a problem. The raft body has three air chambers, two in the lower tube, one in the structure. The floor is a 6″ thick drop stitched high pressure floor that doubles as your air mattress. The tent fabric is heavy duty, waterproof, sealed with heavy duty #8 zippers.
The tent topper sides all attach and detach using heavy duty hook and loop for the ability to use just the top and get in and out easily through the sides if the need arises suddenly.
Place your order today and reserve yours in the first batch arriving late December or early January. These are not yet in stock.
