I’m excited to share these hanging tents with you because if you like tree houses and camping you’ll probably love this.

Yes, camping in the trees would be awesome, but how?

Check this out… it’s a tree tent called the RooMoon made by the Hanging Tent Company.

It takes tent camping to the next level (literally). Handcrafted and designed by graduate student, Rufus Martin in Dorset, England.

Since he presented this at Byrson School as a final project it has been his full-time business since. So how is this contraption made?

The outside material is a durable canvas that can stand any weather. Flooring is made of a lightweight pine and very portable just like the entire tent itself. Each board attaches together making it easy to roll-up and is used as a carrying case for the frame and accessories.

The frame is made of steel rods that are strong and weather proof. Collapses down into a car-sized package making transporting very easy for camping and festivals.

The designer says, “the tent is capable of lifting over 1 ton with ease. The user need only to run the lightweight pulley chain through their hands to be lifted into the canopies.”

Why You Might Want a RooMoon Hanging Tent

  • It’s weather proof and gives you an amazing view.
  • It’s a fun enhancement to traditional camping.
  • It’s portable and collapsible for moving convenience.
  • It can hold up to 1 ton of weight once properly set up.
  • The easy pulley system helps you hoist up in trees.

If you are interested in getting a RooMoon of your own head over to their website, Hanging Tent Company.

The starting price for one of these tree tents is roughly $5,888. That’s out of reach for most, but I still thought it would be fun to at least look at it.

    I’m no fan of camping because it usually ends up raining and campers are left with upper respiratory infections and head colds, if not visited by uninvited creatures from the animal kingdom.

    That being said, I think this is fabulous! A great way to commune with nature and stay dry at the same time. And if you want time alone, you can achieve that in your own back yard!

    What a awesome idea, many times I been camping in Australia at beautiful locations and the first thing you see when you open your tent in the morning is all the other camp sites. how nice it would be to get up and see the tree tops and sky, I love it :-)

    I’m about to go camping, with 4 kids, for a year – and I would LOVE to get a couple of these just to get us all off the ground away from snakes, lizards and venomous creatures! I’d sleep a lot better if I knew the kids were all up off the ground!

    I AM 61 YEARS OLD, IT IS REFRESHING TO SEE YOUNG PEOPLE BEING CREATIVE WITH A FREE MARKET SPIRIT. IT IS WONDERFUL TO SEE THEM ACCOMPLISH AN ENTERPRISE LIKE THIS, AND NOT GETTING INTO DRUGS. WHAT AN EXAMPLE, EVEN FOR SOME OF US MUCH OLDER FOLKS!!!

    Aside from the loo issues, I think it would be very exciting. Imagine being lulled to sleep in the trees! And Yogi couldn’t get into the picnic basket!

    These would be perfect for the “Tree Sitters” who try to block lumber companies from chopping down wonderful Redwood trees. Sometimes these young people post themselves in trees for months at a time with support from other committed people on the ground.

    I would love one of these, have just the right tree for it too. The price however guarantees it won’t be happening for me any time soon. It does give me some ideas for a DIY project, maybe a tiny tea drinking pavilion in the treetops.

    I love this tree house! I enjoy camping, but I hate it when bugs crawl their way into my tent. Now I just have to worry about birds :/
