Winter can get tiring, but have you ever tried summer camping in a properly hot place? I can assure you, I prefer the cold.
Endless sweating, bugs, and dust – it can get miserable.
However, there are ways to improve the experience. Let’s explore a few summer camping tips to make this season’s adventures much more pleasurable!
Summer Camping Tips – Prepare for Cold Northern Nights
If you live down south, chances are you will be sweating and not shivering at night.
However, summer nights can still get cold – especially in the mountains.
Just like in winter, it may be worth taking a diesel heater with you in case you need it.
Our unit of choice is the Planar 4kw portable diesel heater.
This is a self-contained heater that comes in a crushproof and rain-resistant case. It can run on diesel or kerosene and 12v DC.
Fuel consumption is about 3-4 liters for 8 hours, and it can operate efficiently at altitudes of up to 8200ft. So, even if you’re in the high country, you can still have simple, reliable, dry heat for your tent, camper, RV, and so forth. And with a wired remote controller, you don’t even have to get out of bed to adjust the heat output!
This may be a weird item to add to a list of summer camping trips but trust me, it can get cold in some areas even during summer.
With Planar being one of the best manufacturers of diesel heaters, you can be reassured that your sleeping setup will be warm and safe at night-time.
Since the unit sits outside the tent, there’s less of a concern about carbon monoxide poisoning. And since it’s equipped with a silencer, it offers quieter operation so you can sleep better at night.
