A good multi-room tent is the perfect shelter for family camping or any bigger-sized group spending a few nights out in the backcountry.

Multi-room tents offer more space than traditional, smaller tents, with the option of adding walls for added separation and privacy between each campers sleeping quarters.

Having a second or even third set of hands would definitely speed up the process, and if you need this tent in the first place, chances are you’ll have that extra set of hands!  It is a Coleman fast pitch tent and the poles are color coded for some extra help in arranging and pitching the tent.

Multi-Room Tents Buying Guide 2019

How to Pick

Each tent will come with its own set of features and amenities.

Keep your eyes open for:

  • The tent’s dimensions both unfolded and packed: This will help you know how big of a space or lot you need, and how the tent will fit in your car.
  • Tent weight:Its safe to assume you won’t be doing any long distance backpacking, but if you’ve got some distance between your campsite and your car this will be good to know.
  • Tent Materials: Stick with ripstop nylon, high denier polyester, or canvas for colder weather.
  • Rainfly: Not every tent will have a rainfly
  • Windows: Windows in your tent make warm summer camping bearable. Get those cool breezes in your tent without the mosquitos.
  • Side pockets: Many cabin tents come with pockets around the sides which is great for extra storage purposes.
