This year, Coleman has introduced a massive new range of tents for family camping. I’ve been extremely impressed with these new tents. They come packed full of features but at a reasonable price.
Easier to understand what you get
There are so many options for family tents that it gets challenging to compare one with another.
Many brands have what looks like the same tent, but at a different price, as they have a slightly different set of features.
I’ve spent months going over the details of the new tents, getting a lot of details from the different brands. You can use our comparison tool to compare the features of each tent. Just click on the crossed arrows to compare a tent.
Fortunately, Coleman’s new range of tents is straightforward to understand. Here are a few pointers to finding the right tent for your family.
The tents come in three sizes:
- The ‘4’ – ideal for smaller families, especially if camping mainly at weekends.
- The ‘4L’ – provides much more living space, which is ideal for longer camping stays.
- The ‘6’ – ideal for larger families or family camping holidays.
The only range with a slightly different sizing is the Coleman Weathermaster range, which has a 4XL and 8XL. These two tents are not new for this year, and they are a slightly larger size, hence the extra-large sizing. New to this range for 2021 is the Coleman Weathermaster 4 Air.
Below are the five ranges of tents that make up this year’s new Coleman tents. At the top is the most expensive range with the most features. And these do come packed with a lot of features.
As you move down the list, there are less features and cheaper prices.
Though the tents at the bottom of the list are not cheap and cheerful, as they still come packed with 4000 mm hydrostatic head, SPF50 sun protection, rated to stand high winds (32-38mph), and great family layouts.

With some of the Coleman tent ranges, a year’s membership of the Camping and Caravanning Club is included, or a campsite voucher for Coolcamping.
