There are some other variables to consider:

-- How many strong persons do you have in your party, and,

-- How often are you moving.

A typical overland party is two adults, one male and one female. And typically, you move every day or so. This puts a tremendous premium on ease. If you have been driving all day, you don't want to pitch a tent in the dark, in the rain, in the Plaza de Armas, with a crowd of kids, and then take it down the next morning.

But, if you have three vehicles, with three strong adults, and you are not going to move for a week, then a heavy tent may be all you need. You just have to consider your needs.

But now I want to be here:

Indoor plumbing and heat have much to recommend themselves! ¡Y a los Caraquenos les gusta el lujo!
