Thread: How many tents can you fit in car camping?

    Arrow How many tents can you fit in car camping?

    This is my first Coachella and I was wondering; How many tents can you fit in a car camping spot? It seems like once you have your car in there a lot of space is taken if you have a mid-size vehicle.

    Use the forum search option

    But it depends the size of the tent(s)

    You have a 10x30ft space. Try doing a test run and set up your gear.

    Man: How much do oranges cost?
    Grocer: The more you buy, the cheaper they are.
    Man: Cool. Load them into my truck until they're free.

    This is going to be my first year going as well so I'm no "authority" ... but realistically no one can answer this question for you!

    Everything depends on the other .. aka, How big are the tents? How big is the car? Obviously the smaller the car and the smaller the tents, the more you can fit. Or, you could fit a bigger one instead of several small ones.

    Look online to see how big your car's dimensions are (or just go measure it yourself) subtract said dimensions from 10 x 30 and voila, the left over space can be used for tents!

    Realistically about 2 small/medium sized tents and a small car before you start encroaching on your neighbors.
    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched moonbeams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in the rain...

    If you have a small car, you could get 2 on the spot, its weird, but you know what though, every set up and if you went outside of your spot it didnt matter too much..

    Last year? Two 7x7's and a small car just barely fit in our spot. And it was more like 7x25.
