The long living space of the Kingdom 8 easily divides into two rooms. Gear pockets line the tent to make it easy to keep everyone organized. While the tent comfortably fits a family of eight, zipper attachments let you add a gear garage or even more living space.

- Alien Buffalo's Buffalo Tent, $2,470
Built for the brutal desert elements at Burning Man, the Buffalo Tent puts comfort and durability first. The white ripstop nylon tent body blocks out the sun so you can sleep in and stay cool throughout the entire day. This massive tent is big enough to fit four full-sized air mattresses or 14 friendly campers on sleeping pads. Despite its size (and tipping the scales at 44 lbs), the tent easily fits in most sedan trunks.
