The must-haves items for your next camping trip


Summer tents

There’s no need to bring a heavy tent in the summer. In fact, it’s difficult to set up in the hot weather. The solution is a summer tent.

This Karrimor Auto Castle tent is easy to set up with the poles and fabric already connected. Just unfold the tent, and it will set itself up.

The tent is large enough to fit a bed and offers space for cooking in inclement weather. Mud guards prevent rain from getting inside. The tent is 260 centimeters wide, 520 centimeters long and 170 centimeters high. The price is 520,000 won ($490).

Brazier set


A highlight of camping is the campfire. It’s a favorite of the kids, lighting firewood and roasting potatoes. A brazier is a must-have item for campers because not every camping site allows open fires. It’s also essential for cooking.

This brazier can withstand the heat but is also lightweight. For two people, there is no need to buy a bigger brazier.

This model costs 168,000 won


Campers and trailers

There are two main types of campers - pop-up campers and trailers.

Trailers can be easily found at rental car companies. It might be uncomfortable for families because it can cause motion sickness if they are inside.

Pop-up campers are usually in either folding or hard-top versions. The folding version takes up less space, so it can be kept at home. It also doesn’t give much wind resistance when driven.

Meanwhile, box-type hardtop campers don’t require the roof to be folded down, so it is easy to use. But campers must have a license to drive campers over 750 kilograms.

There are five to six domestic camper and trailer manufacturers and also five to six companies that import foreign campers and trailers. They usually cost around 15 million won to 40 million won.
