Ozark Trail 20 x 10 Dark Rest Instant Cabin Tent, Sleeps 12, 45 72 lbs

What really made this tent stand out is that it is extremely durable. I had this up for over two months in all types of weather, including 40-mph gusty winds, driving cold rain, and even wet snow. A few inches of wet snow collapsed the tent, but once I removed it, the tent sprung right back into position. The 150-denier polyester offered proven durability and protection for the contents inside. We found that company representatives are reluctant to estimate the lifespan of their tents.

We also wanted self-standing tents, which can stay up on their own. Even so, you should, ideally, stake down each corner securely; in some crowded campgrounds, however, finding a flat spot with soil soft enough to do that can be difficult. A tent that requires staking to stand up—especially a larger, six-person tent—is unwieldy, and it’ll be impossible to set up on a hard surface such as blacktop or on raised ozark trail shower tent wooden tent decks. Whether you’re thinking of hitting the road or staying close to home for your next car-camping adventure, you and your loved ones will need a comfortable place to sleep. Trailspace’s community of gear reviewers has field-tested and rated the top warm weather tents. During my research on this tent I watched several YouTube videos on how to set up tent by yourself or with two people.

With a center height of 6.5 feet, it can accommodate even the tallest campers. Plus, the 60 square feet of floor space was more than enough to sleep four people. After researching 30 six-person tents and testing 15 side by side on a total of five trips, we chose the Kelty Wireless 6 as the best entry-level camping tent for most families. It’s spacious, easy to set up, has weather protection, and is durable, all at an affordable price. The Wireless 6 lacks some of the premium materials found in pricier tents, but it features solid workmanship and should provide dependable, comfortable shelter in most three-season camping situations.

Keep your gear organized with the included hanging gear organizer. Also included are tent stakes to secure the tent, and a carry bag for easy portability and storage when not in use. Make the most of your next camping adventure with the Ozark Trail 10-Person Instant Cabin Tent.

The rapid setup and solid stability of the T4 Hub are made possible by thicker fabrics and an intricate pattern of fiberglass poles. The result is a heavier tent (31.6 pounds) and a packed size of nearly six feet in length. In short, transportation and storage are not this tent’s strong suits. It also lacks a vestibule feature, and it’s a challenge to stuff it back into its duffel bag. However, if you love this tent’s unconventional conveniences and simplicity, you won’t mind its slight imperfections. Are you looking for a spacious and high-quality camping tent but don’t want a massive setup?

The included removable room divider allows you to create two separate living spaces and comfortably fits two queen airbeds or up to 10 campers in sleeping bags on the floor. Keep your things organized with the included hanging organizer and deluxe gear pockets. This two-room cabin tent also offers electrical cord access, and it even includes a carrying bag for your convenience. If the Mineral King 3 ozark trail instant cabin is out of stock, or if you’d like a slightly larger tent, we recommend the Marmot Tungsten 4. The Tungsten 4 shares many of the Mineral King 3’s best features, and provides 10 square feet of additional living space as well as excellent weather protection—as long as you set it up properly. Like our top pick, the Tungsten 4 is a sturdy, two-door dome-style tent that can be deployed in about 5 minutes.

Several of our tents scored high in this category, but one worth calling out is the Snow Peak Alpha Breeze. This tent has a 300D fire-resistant PU-coated Oxford polyester floor, crazy thick poles, metal guylines, smooth zippers, soft pole sleeves… the list just keeps going. The Gazelle T4 Hub sets up even faster than the Coleman Instant. In fact, some of our testers had it pitched in under 40 seconds, making it the easiest tent to set up on our list. However, in this metric, we also considered weight and packed size, and this is where the Gazelle T4 falls behind a bit, as it’s the heaviest tent in our lineup and it has one of the largest packed sizes.

After first removing the models that failed the structural tests, we slept, watched the stars, and ate our meals in all of the tents, as well as planned hikes from them. Before digging in further, we should point out that any tent you pitch enough times will get easier. However, we made it a point to judge the first pitch, as many folks only use their tent once or twice a year, and who knows what you will and won’t remember after most of a year has passed. Our vacation homes are listed so you can easily find exactly what you’re looking for, and know exactly what you’ll get (we only like welcome surprises). You can look forward to the moment you step through the front door.
