If you are interested in going on your first camping trip, you may be wondering about the different types of equipment you may need. There is a wide range of different types of equipment on the market which can make it very confusing. Thankfully, when I visited my local camping store, I was lucky enough to be introduced to one of the staff who was extremely knowledgeable. He talked me through the different tents, soft floor campers, boots and protective clothing which I might need. Thanks to the advice he gave me my first camping trip was a complete success and it turned out to be the first of many.
