I’m here to let you know what the best 6 person tent is. But instead of just providing my all-time favorite, and because each tent has their own pros and cons, while every tent is different and each tent will make a different fit for each individual – I will mention my top favorite in this article.
After that, I will let you decide on which one you like the most, and if you want to know my recommendation I will also be posting that at the very bottom of this post.
I hope you enjoy 🙂
Does 6 Person Really Mean It Will Fit 6 People?
Well sure, but that is only if you are all lined up like sardines, all in mummy-shaped sleeping bags.
Which I don’t think you OR your family/friends will enjoy, so if you really want to house exactly 6 people comfortably without having to be squished up to each other – then I would rather you choose an 8 person tent.
Otherwise, if you are looking for a 6 person tent for 4-5 people, then the ones in this article are definitely something to consider.
#1 Recommendation – The CORE 6 Person Instant Cabin Tent
This tent can be pitched in 60 seconds flat, and often faster after some practice. The poles are already attached to the tent, so it can be taken out of the carry bag and pitched without any additional hassle.
The rain fly can be removed, which is more preferred in the summer when you want a full view of the night sky, due to the roof being mesh. The large windows are mesh material as well.
There is zippered panels on the windows and door to close them up for added privacy in a public campground.
A free gear loft is also included with the purchase, as well as a wall organizer and lantern hook.
What I Like The Most
I really like how it’s cabin-styled and has the instant setup feature. Since it is high, you can easily stand up in it too.
There is also an adjustable air intake, where you can get cold air from the ground, or take the rain fly off and let hot air escape. Good for during the day time when you want to air it out.
Anyway, I would rather you check out my full review so you can get a better idea, and hopefully help you make a final decision.
#2 Recommendation – Coleman Montana 6 Person Tent
This tent is made for family campers, while it can hold 2 queen-sized air mattresses.
The manufacturers have designed it for ultimate simplicity, however still with all the functions that a normal tent has to offer – safety from the elements, enough room, and good ventilation.
You can set this thing up with one person, and although it doesn’t have the instant setup feature it can be pitched easily and fast, even when one person is doing it.
It isn’t the best 6 person tent, but it does get the job done. Which is to hold up in strong winds, keep the rain out, while keeping you and your family cozy in the process.
What I Like The Most
I really like how it’s affordable and on the more cheaper side than the other tents mentioned. It’s extremely roomy as well, and a better choice if you prefer to have at least 2 queen-sized air mattresses inside, which I find that this tent can do that just fine.
I could go on and mention the pros and the flaws, but I’d rather you read my full review so you get a better understanding on what this tent has to offer.
#3 Recommendation – Coleman Elite WeatherMaster Tent
This tent actually has a built-in lighting system, and a front porch – which is screened with mesh panels. The door is ‘hinged’, and with all these features, it is suppose to be a luxury way of camping, since it amplifies comfort and convenience.
The center height of this tent is roughly standing at 6’8″, so for anyone under that height, you can easily stand up perfectly straight – good for people that enjoy standing up and getting changed and/or making the bed.
The lighting system that this tent includes has 3 modes – high, low, and nightlight. Whereas nightlight is good for a more soft atmosphere so you can sit up and chat or read a book.
Overall, this tent was created for total luxury. With many people enjoying the features that it provides.
What I Like The Most
I really like how it makes a perfect choice for newbie campers.
Since a lot of beginner campers can’t seem to grasp the outdoor aspect and would rather choose a way to ease themselves into the more traditional camping style.
This way, they get the best of both worlds. Where they can enjoy the outdoor world at any time, while they can go back to their tent and enjoy a more homey-styled place to relax.
Don’t get me wrong, even avid campers who have been doing it for years still prefer to camp like this, so I guess it is actually a tent that will fit any type of camper (experienced or not).
The lighting system is the feature that stood out to me the most though.
Either way, I would rather you check out my full review so you can find out the flaws of this tent, because there is some.
My Final Thoughts
These tents are great and work like a charm. However #2 is good for family campers that are on a budget or would rather choose something more affordable yet still effective at the same time.
While #3 does have quite a few flaws, which is why I want you to read my full review so you can fully understand why it is #3 and not #1, especially if it interests you.
But my #1 choice is easily the CORE 6 Person Tent. For the simple fact that it won’t blow over or break in harsh winds. It can easily keep you dry even in heavy downpour.
It is very simple to set up, and fast too. It is just an all-round great tent and definitely worth the price you pay.
If you want my honest opinion on it though, I highly suggest you read my full review – where I provide all information needed, along with the pros and cons.
