With enough room to fit three queen size air beds, the Coleman WeatherMaster 10-Person Tent feels more like a house than a tent. This camping tent is tall enough to stand in comfortably and comes with a hinged front door and a zippered back door to let people come and go easily. The backpacking…

    I’ve used all kinds of backpacking tents, good and bad. Never have I bought a “car camping” tent until now. I wasn’t sure about how I’d like it or the craftsmanship of the product. Boy, this is one nice tent. Super strong, went up in 30 minutes on first try, stable and robust. I swapped out the plastic stakes, (per reviews), with long steel stakes, and you should too.When I first got the box, (in two days!), it was huge. This thing is like 4′ long shipped, but it’s about 3.5′ in it’s bag. The bag is also robust with great handles and zipper. For me, that’s a huge bonus. Nothing worse than getting a sweet tent, only to have a crappy carry bag.I had to air the thing out for about 4 hours to get the dead mouse smell out of mine, that wasn’t a dead mouse, but some form of off-gassing. I took everything out of the bag and noticed how nice the fly was: taped seams and zippers! YES!!!!! About the zippers in this thing: Totally strong and smooth with zero snagging.I really like the floor of this tent. Extremely durable, bathtub style. This bad boy will stay dry. Not sure there’s a need for a footprint with this tent. A dog would not tear holes in this floor.The poles are strong and they set up easily, with a spring clip on the bottom of the tent that goes into the ground side hole of the pole.Interior floor measures: 9×12′. Screened room measures: 6×8.5′ and I’m 6’2″ and can stand up in the portion nearest the interior wall.This will be a very comfortable tent, well made, easily handle the elements, and quality all around.

    This tent is GREAT. I can’t speak highly enough about it. This is the first new tent that i’ve bought in over a decade and man, have they come a long way in design and creature comforts.An auto closing screen door? Are you kidding me? Ingenious! No more hassle of zippering and unzippering the tent during the day—just walk right in.And the head-room! At over 6 ft tall—being able to walk around inside this tent without hunching over like a Neanderthal is refreshing.For those complaining about leaks and/or difficulties erecting this tent; here are some basic rules of camping.1) ALWAYS set up your camping gear in your yard a few days prior to actually leaving. This ensures you know how to set it up and that you have all the parts and materials you need and that everything is in working order (grills, flashlights, lanterns, etc) Better to work out the kinks in the comfort of your own home and at your leasure—with an internet connection if needed than in the woods, with the sun setting, the mosquitoes biting, when all you want to do is get to sitting by the fire and drinking a beer.2) ALWAYS waterproof your tent with Scotchguard ESPECIALLY BRAND NEW TENTS prior to leaving on your trip. Tents do not typically come waterproofed—the new ones claim to have waterproof bases (that glossy fabric that makes up the floors of the tent) but people misunderstand that as meaning the entire tent came waterproofed—THEY DO NOT. The sides and top of brand new tents are not factory waterproofed. You must spray a few coats of Scotchguard over the entire tent and fly—take special care to really spray the seams as the simple act of sewing punches thousands of tiny holes in the fabric—Scotchguard will fill those right up.3) Buy a vapor barrier (a good, heavy, plastic drop cloth from a hardware store—I tend to go with at least 6 mil). New tents claim to have waterproof floors, but to extend the life or your tent and to ensure that you will not wake up to water on the floor, buy a vapor barrier and trim it to be at least 6″ smaller than your tent’s footprint on all sides. If your vapor barrier is visibly sticking out from under your tent, rain will land on it and water will wind up under (and therefore, usually, IN your tent). Vapor barriers also help protect the floor of your tent from abrasions from any small rocks or pebbles you may have missed when clearing your site prior to setting up your tent.HAVE FUN!

    We researched different tents for a month or two and finally decided on this one after reading all of the reviews. We’re a family of five (two adults and three kids under five) and wanted a lot of space for a couple of beds and our bags.The day before our camping trip we took the tent out and did a dry run so we’d be comfortable putting it up at the camp site. Good thing we did, since we wound up getting to the site at dark. It took two of us just over 20 minutes to set up the tent during the dry run and that included pauses for me to read the instructions. It took us less time to set it up the second time and that was in the dark. You definitely need at least two people to get this tent up, but that’s to be expected with such a large tent. The main poles are very sturdy and easy to thread through the top of the tent. It’s important to stake the four corners of the tent really well and then attach the rainfly correctly.Pros:HUGE! We were able to fit two queen sized air mattresses and our bags with plenty of room to spare. We could have easily fit another queen sized air mattress or a pack-n-play without anything touching the tent walls.The hinged door. I’m used to flimsy tent doors that get caught in the zipper when opening and closing them. The hinged door was fantastic and perfect for walking in and out while carrying a baby. The only downside is our 2 year old thought it was a lot of fun to constantly open and close the door. I’m sure after a few more camping trips that novelty will wear off for her.Easy set up. We read all of the negative reviews about this tent and knew we wouldn’t be able to put this thing up with just one person (and really, what 10 person tent can you put up solo?). My husband staked the tent corners while I threaded the poles then we both quickly popped them in to place. Once the tent was up, my husband finished staking the rest of it and I stepped in to set up our beds and bags.Easier break down. This thing was even easier to break down than it was to set up. We read that people had difficulty fitting the tent back in the bag, but we had no issues the two times we’ve put it in and I imagine it’ll get easier as the tent breaks in. It does help to have two people roll up the tent and hold the bag closed while the other zips it.Airflow. The entire roof is screened and the tent has large windows on each side so there’s good airflow when the rainfly is off. It is a bit stifling once the rainfly is up, but that’s to be expected with any tent in hot weather.Cons:Tent stakes. This comes with flimsy metal stakes for the tent and cheap plastic stakes for the rainfly. The metal stakes can bend out of shape if you aren’t careful with how and where you stake them. The rainfly stakes were harder to pull out of the ground and would probably hold up better in windy weather, but one of our plastic stakes got all sorts of twisted when it was knocked in the ground. I suggest purchasing good quality tent stakes for the tent and rainfly. You’ll need 10 for the tent and 6 for the rainfly, plus a could of extras just in case.Not yet reviewed/experienced:Waterproofing. We didn’t have any rain while we camped, so I can’t say how well this tent keeps out water, but all of the seams looked good and well put together. I’ll update this once we’ve camped in the rain.Suggested items to bring with you:Tarps to set the tent up on to protect the bottom.Horse or packing blankets for the inside floor of the tent.Small broom and dust pan to clean out the tent before packing it up.Small battery operated lantern to hang from the tent ceiling.
