Die Google tannie sê dit op jou vraag.

"Cabin tents look a bit like a canvas house. They're roomy inside and often have internal partitions, windows, and a high peak height. Dome tents appear like a turtle shell. They can feel less spacious inside and are more for sleeping than hanging out"

Some of the smaller dome tents also are of the quick erect type where you release the catches, throw the tent up in the air and it comes down fully erected.  You just have to knock in some pegs.  The problem is you need a diploma course to get them back in their bags, but once you have mastered this, they are pure pleasure, obviously for sleeping in only. No cabin tents are that easy to erect as far as I am aware of.

Canvas dome tents when pegged down at all their eyelids perform brilliantly in heavy wind storms, better, much better than upright walled tents.

It is not how old one is that matters, it is how one is old that matters. One do not stop playing because one is old – one is old because one stopped playing.

A Cabin Tent tends to be way bulkier as they generally have a tubular framework made from circa 19mm diameter steel tubes. These are heavy and take space. They are nice though, it all depends on your needs. None is better than the other.

One too many wasted sunsets, one too many for the road.

Dome tents do much better in wind and rain.

We had a Howling moon dome tent but it was a synthetic fabric one and the fibreglass poles regularly cracked and broke. The canvas tents have heavier poles so maybe not such a problem as our dome tent. Never had a worse tent for being flattened in the wind . Our cottage tent held up better as the pipe framework gave it rigidity and support. Have seen how our Skipper tent stands up so well in wind because it has such good cross bracing pipes.

Howling Moon ripstop dome tent (with steel poles) - maybe a bit heavier, but good quality.

Hi there Anonymous, follow Wilsur's advise and google you answer.

Dome tents are dome shaped and the other is in the shape of the Caszebo (square) with stronger structure.

Hi there fellow camper, enjoy camping.
When you leave just leave your foot prints and nothing other than a clean site as you found it.

Waarom het skrywer nou "anonymous " geword. N Dankie sê sou meer gepas en welkom gewees het.
