You have the worst part covered already, climate control. We started tent camping when my sone was 9-10 months old, but then the louisiana summer rolled in good and getting him to nap or sleep at night was a PITA and miserable for all, that is why we went to a popup, for the AC. Then after a couple of rainy trips, we realized we needed more room for inside play and got the tt.
See, you are starting out ahead of the game.
Pack and play is great, especially for enjoying outside time in nice weather with a little one, and if you have the room, they do great inside too. But, the baby dont fall (no idea what they are called really) thing that is like a little wall on the side of the bed and the legs slide under the mattress, works great and is easy to use.
