How much does a glamping dome cost?


The different types of glamping dome

Composition of the dome: frame + outer covering + other accessories
The lamella domes and geodesic domes are the company's two main structural forms, named according to how the steel pipe is assembled, and can be chosen according to customer preferences.

Characteristics of geodesic dome structure

Regular 20-facet shape, fewer types of pipes, with similar lengths and even stress distribution, high material utilization. Suitable for single-layer structures below 20 meters. The disadvantage is that the door arrangement is not as flexible as that of the lamella dome, and installing curtains is more troublesome than the lamella dome.

Characteristics of the lamella dome structure

Simple structure, reinforced at the top. Suitable for medium to large spans where there is a greater need for structural strength of the glamping domes.Flexible door arrangement.The disadvantage is that there are more types of pipes.

The factors that determine the cost of a glamping dome

The glamping types

The choice of different types directly affects the cost. For example, the lamella domes and geodesic domes each have their own advantages and disadvantages, and their design frameworks vary, leading to price differences. Generally, the geodesic domes, with fewer poles, are slightly cheaper than the lamella domes. Therefore, when choosing, it is necessary to evaluate according to specific needs.

Different Sizes

Size is one of the important factors affecting the price. Generally, the larger the dome, the higher the price. This is because larger domes require more materials and construction costs. Our standard glamping domes range in size from 5m to 15m in diameter, with an area of 19 square meters to 178 square meters. The starting price for the frame is $1,000.

Different steel tube sizes

The size of the steel pipe also affects the price. Different sizes of domes require different steel pipe sizes to support the structure, and the size of the steel pipe is closely related to the price. For domes of the same steel pipe size, the size of the steel pipe selected under different operating conditions will also vary. These operating conditions include wind loads, snow loads, and safety factors such as urban or suburban locations.Therefore, when choosing the size of the steel pipe, it is necessary to inform us about the specific conditions of the environment in which it will be used. So that they can recommend suitable materials and structures.

Optional Configurations

Optional configurations are also important factors affecting the price.The basic dome usually includes the frame, outer fabric, insulation cotton, windows, curtains, and doors. However, customers can choose to add additional configurations according to their needs. For example, you can choose to add platforms and floors, which can make the camping area tidier and easier to manage. You can also choose to install modular bathrooms and kitchens to make life more convenient. Choose to add furniture such as beds, sofas, chairs, and tables. These additional configurations will increase the cost of a glamping dome.


Where you can create a unique luxury camping dome according to your preferences and needs. For example, you can choose to add more windows to let sunlight in better, or add insulation layers to provide a comfortable environment in hot summers and cold winters. Additionally, you can choose custom interiors, such as specific wallpapers, carpets, or decorations, to give your camping space more personality. However, remember that because customization requires more design and production work, it will increase the cost of a glamping dome.

The cost of a camping dome is affected by a number of factors, ranging from the structural type and size of the dome to the materials used and the level of customization desired.

Lamella and geodesic domes offer distinct advantages and price points, catering to different structural needs and aesthetic preferences. The size of the dome and the diameter of the steel pipes used are critical in determining the overall cost, as they affect the amount of materials and the complexity of the construction.

Optional configurations and customizations further add to the cost, allowing for enhanced comfort and personalized touches at a premium.Ultimately, investing in a glamping dome involves balancing these factors according to specific needs and budgets to achieve the best value and enjoyment from this unique form of accommodation.
