We received our WeatherMaster Screened 6 Tent last Friday, June 28th. We put it up on Sunday, June 30th. It probably took us about 45 mins to put it up the first time and I am sure it will go much quicker next time. Even though it took us about 45 mins it was a VERY easy tent to put up. After we set it up we then sealed the seams with Coleman Seam Sealer just incase we encounter rain on our camping adventures. We had heard others say that their tent leaked so we made sure to take extra preventative measures. I also ordered waterproofing spray which I will spray all over the tent next time we put it up. The rainfly was rather neat as well since in clipped right into each pole, I know we are also supposed to steak it down but I really don't see it as a necessity. I absolutely LOVE the screen porch and so did our little yorkie, I think we will make great use of it since I am not much of a camper and don't enjoy bugs. The hinged door is an extra detail we love as well, it is just so convenient and cool. I also would say that this tent is more for 4 people than it is for 6. It is just right for 2 campers such as my boyfriend and myself to have enough space with not feeling crowded. After we left it out to dry for about 2 hours, we then put it away to pack for our trip. After a few hours my boyfriend and I both said we loved the tent so much we wanted to put it up in our living room just because it is so neat! I also received many compliments from neighbors admiring our tent, they all said it was such a neat/beautiful tent and we could not agree more!! Love it!! I will follow up after we have used this in the rain.....

We debated several tents, looking for biggest size with an affordable price. Highly recommend this tent do to size, screen area, extended floor, ample windows. With a little work, was able to set tent up by myself in my living room (hadn't bought seam sealer or a tarp for outside yet). Later set it up in the backyard (was easier with a second person). Rain-fly can be attached by one person, though it is a challenge. Used seam sealer just to be safe. Went camping this past weekend at Starved Rock State Park in IL. Tent is very spacious; large amount of extra space for two people and two chihuahuas. As the photo shows, the tent floor comes a few inches up the side of the tent. Tent held up well in 10 mph winds--didn't buckle or come unstaked. Did not leak with an average amount of rain. No rain entered even with the windows opened, while campers two sites over had to hand dry their sleeping bags the next morning. If you don't fully assemble the rain-fly (inserting poles over door) rain/condensation will drip into tent. Hinged door is nice but hardly used. There is zippered slit near the front door side for an extension cord. "Cooler door" zips from both the outside and inside, and has a screened window. Lots of windows to allow for a breeze. Put up the room divider and left the rain-fly separating the screened area from the tent open. The screened area fit two over sized folding chairs and two folding stools, plus the cooler comfortably; could have fit at least one more over sized chair. The screened area does not have a floor (preferred for all the in entering/exiting we did through it). The bottom of the screened area has flaps that can fold in or out, and help keep out most bugs. We used logs to hold the flaps down inside the screen area to help minimize gaps with ground, partly because we didn't stake down the two centers of screened area (doing so would have made a better seal with the ground, but the campsite was gravel and we didn't didn't bring extra metal stakes...the plastic ones were too big). Recommend buying both extra metal and plastic stakes to be prepared for any type of ground or breakage (we didn't have any). Screened area was a huge bonus because it allowed us to enjoy the outdoors without having to deal with the hungry mosquitoes. Dogs had no issue sneaking under screen ground flaps to avoid unzipping screen for them. Very easy to take down and store back in bag by one person. Key is to fold tent into thirds, then in halves. Role the poles and rain-fly into the tent for storage and to easily fit all the parts into the storage bag. Instructions are sewn into tent bag and are easily followed. Key is to insert all curved rods, then the two sets of red-banded leg poles, then the outer two sets of leg poles.

We really wanted to love this tent. It was a breeze to set up, was nice and roomy and plenty tall for my 6'2" fiance. The cooler hatch seemed like a perfect dog door for our two little pups, and the screen room was a decent size for a couple chairs and a table. The hinged door is a great feature, as well. I loved that the top of the tent was a screen and begged my fiance to not put up the rain fly. Luckily he did, because on that gorgeous late August night in California it poured, and continued to rain all the next day.

And I woke up soaking wet. Everybody else was dry, but the cargo bags on the windows leak something fierce and my spot on the bed was right below one. We didn't have anything to seal them with so sometime in the morning we resorted to cutting them off and that slowed the problem. We don't know if it was poor crafstmanship or a bad choice of thread, but a tent from Coleman (especially with the name "Weathermaster") shouldn't leak. Luckily they have a guarantee.

Ours also did not come with a room divider, so we can't comment on that function. Without the divider it was very comfortable for 2 adults and 2 dogs. A small child or two could also have fit, but I can't imagine 6 adults sleeping in it.

Final word: if it's dry where you're camping, don't hesitate. It's a great tent minus the leaking.

I love reviews, I read them all the time before I purchase anything on amazon. I have never written one before, but feel I owe a review of this tent to humanity so that no one else, especially young children, will suffer the same fate that our family did when we went camping last weekend.
I'm baffled that they call this tent the weather master. My husband and I took our 10 month old and 3 year old camping last weekend in the cascade mountains in washington state. We set up our brand new tent and I loved it. Not too hard to set up, lot's of room, loved the big windows and the screened room was neat too. We had great weather and everything was fine until....

A thunderstorm rolled in about 2am..wind, lightning, thunder and then....rain. I lay in my tent like a happy little clam for about 30 seconds, and then it literally rained in our tent as if there was no cover over us at all. Pouring rain right through the top of our tent, can I be more clear? Raining IN our tent. Both kids started screaming, we ran them a couple hundred feet to our car and buckled them both into their car seats, then ran back to our tent. There was no hope, the sleeping bags had puddles on top of them, the floors were covered in about an inch of water, EVERYTHING was completely soaked, there was standing water in the pack and play, water in our clothes bags, water in our food, water everywhere.

As soon as we got home I packed up this tent and sent it back. Please only buy this tent if you plan on never, ever, ever, camping in any kind of rain.

The first time I set this tent up one of the corner stake loops pulled away from the tent. Coleman acknowledged the defect and are willing to replace the tent but I have to pay for shipping. Had the tent cost $30 more to begin with I would not have purchased it. I feel like I am paying a surcharge for Coleman's poor quality control. This tent was made in China; the stake loops are should be sewn through the seams for a couple of inches for strength but they are not. Hardly any stress at all was necessary to pull the corner away. I grew up with Coleman products and have 3 of their coolers, a lantern, stove, chairs and other accessories and remember them as providing sturdy, reliable products but they seem to have gone the way of other big companies in looking for the highest return on their dollar at the expense of durability and customer loyalty. Well, I will pay for shipping rather than take a complete loss but Coleman has had their last dollar from me.

This tent is OK if it is not raining very hard at all. Otherwise, it lets in lots of water. All our sleeping bags, pillows, clothes, etc. were wet from normal Kansas summer rain. Maybe we were not as wet as if we were sleeping outside, so it does give a little shelter. It will let a nice breeze through when windows are open and there is lots of room inside. No guy lines to anchor it from higher winds. Don't know why the porch area doesn't have a floor. If I didn't buy it online, I would be returning it right now. "guaranteed to keep you dry and comfortable" is just a sales pitch. I have no idea how to get my money back without paying a ton in shipping costs.

I purchased the Coleman WeatherMaster Screened 6 Tent after a lot of research. I was looking for something functional for my family, including two young daughters. We were looking for something with plenty of room, easy to set up, and comfortable. I was initially worried about the sleeping space, with roughly 1/3 of the tent used as a screened in area with no floor, but that concern was put to rest as soon as i set it up in my front yard. There is about 11'x 9' of space in the "main tent" area, plenty of room for our two queen air mattresses, and the 8' x 8' sleeping bag that we all pile into. Going from the main tent space to the screened in section is separated by both zippable screen (which does zip down the middle, as well as along the bottom), and a solid tent flap as well (that only zips down the middle). I really like the design here, as it provides some options to improve the air flow in the tent.
The screend area is about 6' x 9' when fully spread out, which provides enough room for all 4 of us to throw down a blanket and have a bug free lunch, or for 2 of us to sit in our camp chairs and play cards on a small folding table.
The hinged door design Coleman came up with is great, especially with little kids who constantly go in and out of the tent, leaving the zipper open and allowing the mosquitos and flies to invade. The door flap shuts as they go in and out, with velcro in 3 places holding it there (great thinking Coleman!)
This tent does have heavy metal poles, so don't plan on carrying this in a long way to camp, but the construction is solid, and I like the way the tent poles sit above the screened roof by at least a 4" gap. This creates a nice space between the rain fly and the top of the tent, allowing for better circulation. This is not your winter camping tent, but will keep you nice and cool in the summertime, and make those sleeping bags all the more cozy.
All in all, this is exactly what I hoped it to be, I am very happy with my purchase and look forward to many family camping trips with it.

I spent the better part of the summer reviewing tents to find the best quality tent for the best price. As far as price goes, nothing came close to Amazon. I was, and still am thrilled with the price I spent on this tent (around $160) when retail is over $265. The tent itself as almost everything I had hoped for. It is large, but not too large. Very spacious interior, I am 6'0" and can stand up straight inside of it. The hinged door is a great feature and the screened porch is nice, although I haven't really used it. But there is a pretty major flaw with the tent. I have used the tent four times this past fall, and two out of the four times water condensed on the top of the rain fly and dripped through the screened roof onto my sleeping bag. And I mean a lot of water... so much so that it soaked through my sleeping bag where it was dripping. This is a rather large problem. It doesn't prevent me from using it, but it definitely makes it inconvenient. I have not yet slept in the rain, so I do not know how it will hold up against the elements. Note that I did use two cans of waterproof spray on the tent before I ever used it.

I love the tent, it is just really unfortunate that water condenses on the rainfly and drips through. Consider this before buying.

I bought this tent for a week-long scouting camping trip knowing it would get abused. It is one tough tent! First I'll start by saying it is a heavy tent. You're not going to pack it in to where you are going. But that's ok, it is large enough for a scout master to have separate sleeping quarters, a changing/living area to store gear and the screen room is awesome! It is nice to sit in to relax in the evening or if you just want to get out of the sun. Don't use the screen room for storage unless gear can get wet. Back to why its heavy, this tent uses rigid poles held together by shock cords that are color-coded and easy to assemble. This is a plus if you encounter a thunderstorm with wind. Fiberglass poles tend to deteriorate after awhile and split after several set-ups. If the cord ever breaks it can be repaired. You might want to set this tent up a few times first to get used to how it is assembled. It comes with those flimsey coat hanger wire tent stakes which I got rid of and bought the Coleman 10" heavy duty steel rod stakes. Coleman 10-Inch Steel Tent Stakesyou can drive those things into tree roots and not bend them!(Get 4 packs of 4) I saw some reviews saying it leaks. I found this is true if you don't have the screen windows completely closed and the zippers located at the very top where the rain can't get thru. Another review says the door between main tent and screen room is open to the outside and animals can come in. This isn't true. The screen door can be zipped closed with the flaps left open on the outside or closed for complete privacy. Yes, the outside flap doesn't zip at the bottom but it overhangs the outside bottom and is closed. But the screen keeps out the bugs and critters. I wouldn't want the bottom of flaps to zip or it would be a hassle to go in and out, defeating the purpose. Another plus is you don't need extra stakes for the rain fly, it attaches to the stakes already used or rings at the stake holes, so no ropes to trip over, and its completely self-supporting by the poles. The innovative entry door uses fiberglass poles to make the door more door-like. it can be opened like a door and holds closed by Velcro, or for more security and rain-proof it can be zipped closed. Before ordering this tent I was a little apprehensive, but I'm glad I made the choice to buy this one.

I chose this tent after looking at many other brands. I've always been a fan of Coleman products. I am very happy with this tent. It was relatively easy to set up the first time (I could set it up much faster the next time) and I was surprised with the quality of the construction. I had the tent set up for 3 days, it only drizzled alittle bit, but i would stay in the tent in a downpour because it has a fantastic rainfly. The floor is excellent and the new door is very cool. The screened entry also opens from inside so that's a nice feature. Each window has a nice opening with great screens. The top of the tent is mostly screen so I liked the airflow inside the tent. I set the tent on a large tarp and made a floor for the screened area, we had 2 large coolers and 2 chairs so it was very comfortable sitting in the screened room. The tent kept the bugs out really well. I set up 2 large air mattresses and there was plenty of room for our other stuff. A few friends commented on how much they liked the tent and looked at it closely. It was kind of a big hit at the campsite! I highly recommend this tent and I can't wait to use it again.
