What This Tent is About:
The Coleman Cabin Camping Tent with Screen Room comes in two variants for 4 and 6 people, each with and without a waterproof porch. In this review, we’ll focus on the 6-person tent with the porch, as it offers more fully protected space. The tent’s version without the porch has a screen room that is not fully protected from the rain, as it features a narrow mesh section that allows rainwater to drain away. However, the floor is still completely floored.
The tent is a tunnel-type structure that features a front screen room area and a back inner room area. The tent’s structure is best understood when viewed without the fly. Although it’s called a “cabin” tent, this tent has nothing in common with cabin tents. Instead, it’s a part of the new series of Coleman tents that have been recently launched. This tent is included in the list of the best tunnel-type tents for camping.
The front of the tent has a single door with a central zipper that leads to the front screen room area. The screen room is completely floored, and it’s an excellent area to store boots and shoes. It features a narrow mesh section just in front of the inner door that allows rainwater to drain away. This is especially important for the tent’s version without the porch, as the screen room isn’t fully protected.
The Screen Room & The Inner Room:
The screen room is a key feature of the Coleman Cabin Camping Tent with Screen Room. It’s completely floored, but there’s a narrow mesh section just in front of the inner door. This mesh section allows rainwater to drain away, which is especially important for the tent’s version without the porch since the screen room is not fully protected. It’s important to note that the floor of the screen room is not removable.
However, when the porch is added, the screen room offers full protection from the rain, although not from groundwater due to the mesh section. The porch provides around 1/3 of the protected space to the tent, and it’s deep enough to allow for a small side table and a couple of chairs.
The screen room is deep under the porch, providing a sheltered space to relax and enjoy the outdoors without being bothered by insects. It’s an excellent area to store boots and shoes, keeping the inner room clean and tidy.
The inner room of the tent is fully protected from the elements and insects, with a bathtub-style floor that keeps water out. The room is spacious enough to accommodate up to six people comfortably, and it features windows on all sides that provide excellent ventilation.
The Fly & Porch:
The Coleman Cabin Camping Tent with Screen Room comes with a fly that provides partial coverage. The fly is designed to keep rain out while still allowing air to circulate, which helps to eliminate condensation inside the tent.
The fly features three screened windows on all sides of the tent, each with double-layered mesh and inner panels for protection and privacy. These windows provide excellent ventilation, which is essential for warm weather camping.
The tent’s version without the porch still features an awning and windbreakers on the sides, which partially protects the screen room. When the porch is added, the screen room is fully protected from the rain, although not from groundwater due to the mesh section. The porch adds around 1/3 of the protected space to the tent, and it provides an excellent area to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
The porch is shown in the pictures above, and it’s deep enough to allow for a small side table and a couple of chairs. It provides a sheltered space to relax and enjoy the outdoors without being bothered by insects. The porch is an excellent addition to the tent and makes it a great option for warm weather camping or early autumn.
The Coleman Cabin Camping Tent with Screen Room is designed to provide excellent ventilation, which is essential for warm weather camping or early autumn. The tent is constructed with large mesh windows on all sides, which allow air to circulate freely, keeping the interior of the tent cool and comfortable.
The partial-coverage fly is well separated from the tent’s body, which allows air to circulate and eliminates condensation inside the tent. The tent’s back side features a floor vent, which is a great addition for times when you need to keep the panels closed due to rain. The floor vent ensures that there’s always fresh air circulating inside the tent, providing excellent ventilation even in less-than-ideal weather conditions.
Whether you’re camping in hot weather or in cooler temperatures, the Coleman Cabin Camping Tent with Screen Room is designed to keep you comfortable and well-ventilated.
