What's The Best Floor For A Screen Tent?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: May, 2021 - Modified: February, 2024

A screen tent is a great addition to any camping or back yard set up. Offering views of scenery and the feel of fresh air while being protected from critters, bugs, and weather elements, screen tents offer a shady spot that’s perfect to use to enjoy a meal, read a book, take a nap, or play. Whether you use a screen tent in a pop up campsite, outside by a cabin, house, or porch, as an addition to your travel trailer, or to create an instant room by the beach, your experience will be a better one if you have adequate flooring.

This high performing flooring will cost about $2.70 per square foot.
