If you are going on a trip with the whole family or a group of friends, you can use a family tent for 4 persons or more. A family tent is first and foremost a large tent where comfort is a priority. You can usually even stand upright in it. This is handy if you want to change clothes or play cards during a rainstorm. They have a sleeping area and separate living area, which can often be extended with a fixed canopy. First decide how many sleeping compartments and how much living space you want. And psst, a family tent for 5 persons is perfectly comfortable for 4 persons.
