Coleman Instant 14×10 Two Room Tent Review
One of the best tents for camping, if you need a larger size tent is The Coleman Instant 14?ï¿½10 two room tent, model number 2000005512. This is a very spacious two room tent than can sleep up to 8 people at a time. Coleman calls it “instant” because you can set up this tent in just about a minute or so. The poles come pre attached to the tent allowing a very fast setup, or take down with no problem. Just unfold it, spread it out, extend the poles and click them to lock. Measuring 14 feet by ten feet, this is a huge tent as far as tents go. You can divide it into two separate rooms with the removable divider which drops down to separate the space. This is a good idea in the event that you want to keep the kids in a separate room, or if you are camping with another family and sharing the tent.
Coleman is known for their quality and devotion to camping products. They have been at the game longer than just about anyone else. This is a strong, weather proof tent. It is constructed out of their WeatherTec fabric which uses a specially coated polyester fabric, rain proof zippers and a welded waterproof floor. Coleman tests all of their WeatherTec products in a special machine that simulates extreme downpours and hurricane force winds to ensure that the tents will hold up in the nastiest conditions, conditions which hopefully you will never have to endure.

This is a very big tent that works really well if you have a large family, or if you are going on an extended camping trip to one spot and want to have the convenience of a large living accommodation while you are there. This is not the type of tent that pack into your backpack and walk around with as it is too heavy for that kind of backpack camping, unless your name is Hercules. The multiple rooms allow you to take along a lot of stuff if you are on a long camping trip. It is very convenient to have all the extra room.
The setup of this unit is pretty easy even if you are a beginner in these matters. Coleman has a video showing you how to do it in just about a minute or so. It really is that easy. Taking it down is just as easy although getting it back in it’s carrying bag was a little troublesome, although I find that with many different products.
Overall, for the relatively inexpensive price of this shelter and for the large accommodations that it offers, I have to give it a thumbs up.
