Dome Tents Quick Setup
Dome Camping Tents Offer Easy Setup and Are Moderately Priced
Dome tents are the most popular on the market today and deservedly so.
These freestanding tents are a breeze to set up—no stakes—and
provide good protection from wind and rain. Coleman dome tents come
in several sizes and shapes while staying in the moderate price bracket.
Here we’ve highlighted just three of the many styles available.
All of these tents come with the WeatherTec protection system, Variflo
ventilation and a Cool-Air port, as well as a rainfly. You’ll
also find a sewn-in gear pocket and a port for electrical access.
The Sundome line is the most basic of the Coleman dome camping tents.
This tent comes in five sizes from the 5x7-foot two-person model to
the 12x10-foot version that sleeps six. All sizes feature one room with
a door and window, except the largest which has two rooms and two doors
on opposite sides of the tent. These are great tents for novice campers
as they’re quick and easy to set up with two fiberglass shock-corded
poles that cross at the top of the dome. Add the rainfly and you’re
Evanston Tent Series
This line includes tents that sleep four, six or eight people in one
room. All feature a front canopy with wings that’s integrated
into the rainfly and creates a nice shady area in front of your door.
The two smaller tents have zipper doorways while the Evanston 8 and
the Elite Evanston 8 both feature hinged doors. The Elite model, top
among Coleman dome tents, also includes self-rolling windows and a 15-watt
fluorescent-spiral remote-control ceiling light, powered by eight D-cell
Montana Tent Line
With a rectangular footprint, the Montana tents are considered modified
domes but set up is still easy thanks to color-coded poles and sleeves.
The three tents in this series sleep four, six or eight in one room,
and all feature reverse angle windows so you’ll see more than
the sky. The extended fly and wings protect the doorway area from rain
or hot sun. The Montana 8 also features a hinged door, one of several
innovations in Coleman dome tents.
