Some qualities of a good tent
First, you need to ensure that your portable party tent is easy to set up. That means that the various parts fit right into each other, perfectly, in such a way that you don't have to hammer anything together.
There is also the element of sturdiness; how well does it hold up to both hot and cold conditions, and should you be worried about your tent getting shoved around by strong winds or heavy rains. These are all small details that one ought to consider before taking on any party tent.
Other considerations include the dismantling procedure; is it idiot proofed, or will someone come and collapse it by accident?
There is also the galvanizing check. It is important to make sure that your portable party tent is corrosion resistant, and that it won't break apart at the sign of a little rust.
There are also issues of ventilation, lighting and stability. The slant on the roof should be in such a way that water drainage is easy. If water puddles crop up on the roof, it can cause the roof to sag which might collapse the tent.
