Coleman Weathermaster 6 Tent Review

By on


I am no tent expert…but I have used the Coleman Weathermaster tent enough times to give it a thorough review!

This is actually the first tent I have ever purchased.

Before I had a baby I would just sleep under the stars!

We borrowed my parents tent for our first camping trip with our baby and it doesn’t even compare to this one.

If you have kids,  I highly recommend you investing in a family size tent.  It makes all the difference in the world.

It takes 20 min or less to set up and it takes 2 people, unless you are really skilled.

My 3 favorite Features About the Coleman Weathermaster…

First off I love how big it is.  This thing is like a studio apartment.  There is so much room.

The fact that you can stand up in it was a selling point for me.

Crawling around on your hands and knees all while helping your children get settled is a nightmare.

There is plenty of room for our Queen size mattress, kids sleeping cot, and our dog kennel.

And we still have mass amounts of room to move around!

The tent sleeps up to 6 people and actually has 2 separate rooms inside in case you and your honey need some privacy…hehe

My 2nd favorite feature… is the easy access hinge door.  This makes it so much more convenient than zipping the door open and closed every time you enter and exit the tent!

The door zips as well which you should do when you are sleeping.  On our last camping trip in Colorado was had some little creature run into our door in the middle of the night.

It would have been in our tent if we didn’t zip it up.

My 3rd favorite feature… is the screened in porch.

This feature allowed us to cook our steaks while pouring rain!

We would have been eating cold PB & J if we did not have the screened porch area.

It also serves as a great canopy and that keeps you safe from the sun and bugs.

It makes a great yoga room as well!

They don’t call this the Weathermaster for No Reason…

We have tested the limit on this baby!

We were camping down in Moab this past spring and and if you know anything about Utah weather it can change in a blink of an eye.

And that’s exactly what it did.

Thanks goodness we put the rain fly on because we would have been soaked and miserable  if we didn’t.

No Rain Fly

Rain Fly

Coleman Weathermaster 6 Tent review 2


The winds were howling and the rain was pouring sideways.

I hardly noticed the storm.  My husband informed me in the morning.

We stayed dry and I slept like a baby…vodka helps:)


Our last camping trip in Colorado was a bit scary.

We showed up late to our campsite and the clouds were rolling in.  We were in a do or die situation.

It was thundering and lightning and I’m standing there holding metal poles…heart attack waiting to happen.

I seriously thought that was my death wish.

The rain starting coming and we barely got it up in time for the downpour.

It ended up raining all night but we stayed dry!!!!

Here is a clip of the next day waiting out the rain in the tent.


We stayed dry under the screened porch but the only thing I would change…would be to have a built in waterproof flooring for the screened in area.

A good and cheap way to get around that would to lay a heavy duty tarp down on the ground before hand.

Would I endorse this tent??

This is a nice feature but if you decide to go with the Weathermaster  you can always hang lights like I do.

2. Auto-roll window system


Coleman Weathermaster 10

  • Two-room tent sleeps up to ten campers comfortably thanks to 17-by-nine-inch (W x D) footprint and six-foot, four-inch center height

This tent is just about the same as the Weathermaster 6 except it does not have the screened porch.


If you’re looking to go backpacking or hiking with your tent, these weathermaster’s are not your tent.
But if you’re looking for a durable, comfortable, family size tent that will keep your family dry through whatever mother nature has to hand you…the Coleman Weathermaster is the tent for you!

    This review was helpful. We have been considering tents with porches for our next tent. We have also been considering a larger tent for times that we take our nieces and nephews with us. Overall, this seems like a great option and the video helped us truly answer our questions. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the informative review Somer. I am curious on the longevity of the tent you purchased two years ago. Is the canvas holding together still? Also during the rain doesn’t water come through the screen porch?

    • You are welcome!We actually sold it because we travel full time in an RV now but after 2 years of using it, it was in perfect condition. I would def buy another one!
