Family Cabin Tents

8-Man Tents - Easy Setup and Comfortable Camping

If that basic dome tent you and your spouse camped in for years seems a little crowded now that your family is growing, maybe it’s time to think about one of those family cabin tents. Those big tents with straight up-and-down walls are roomy and spacious, yet many have removable dividers that make two or more rooms for privacy. You can give the kids their own space, or designate one room for sleeping only. (Hint: It stays cleaner that way!)
North Face Trailhead 8
            This is one of the biggest family cabin tents, sleeping up to eight people. It measures 206x104 inches, or approximately 17x8.5 feet, with a floor area of 132 square feet. And if that’s still not enough there’s also a vestibule in front with 28 square feet of gear storage space. Two pull-down privacy walls divide this giant space into three rooms and two doors keep traffic jams to a minimum. Four aluminum alloy poles hold this monster up, plus there’s an extra pole for the vestibule, and color-coded fly attachments help with the setup.
Paha Que Promontory
            The Promontory will also hold up to eight campers in its 120-square-foot space, which is maximized by the tent’s vertical walls. A removable divider with a zippered door divides this 12x10-foot tent into two rooms; each room then has its own door leading outside, plus a third door on the tent’s front provides access to either space. Paha Que’s Weather Control System includes a bathtub floor with factory-taped seams and a partial fly with built-in awning, as well as a 100-percent waterproof guarantee. 
Eureka Copper Canyon Series
            There are four tents in Eureka’s Copper Canyon series of family cabin tents—the 10, 1312, 1512, and1610—and they’re all designated by their side measurements. (For example, the 1312 measures 13x12 feet and the 10’s four sides are all 10 feet.) The 1312 and the 1512 feature a removable divider, while the 1610 consists of an 80-foot-square tent and an equal-sized screen room. All four tent bodies are made of polyester taffeta and the polyester flies are treated with Eureka’s Storm Shield system.
