Tentsile Stingray 3P

There’s nothing we love more than spending a night under the stars with our friends.

Its large, open dome design has a mesh top so we can get a better view of those dots piercing the night sky. The Stingray can be set up over any type of terrain and offers separation from uneven and wet cold ground. It has enough space for up to 3 adults and gear or 2 adults and 2 children, for sleeping in hammock like comfort. Setup and take down is simple and easy, and it isn’t overly heavy for the amount of shelter it provides, especially considering that it opens up camping in a whole new way and to places that tents are not normally able to go. The Stingray is great for anyone looking to bring their camping to a new level of fun and comfort.
