I seriously don’t know what it is with me and Coleman Tents, I really don’t. When I get them, I just am so impatient I have to put them up where I open them at… That always tends to be my home or better yet the formal dining room….
Here is the first Coleman tent I received last year, it went up in my living room.
And here is the all-new Coleman Instant Tent that I JUST received today, LOL…
Yes, I realize I am insane, I never said I wasn’t.
but it is so much fun!!!! And this tent is seriously easy to set up. I thought that the last one I got was super easy. Heck that first one only took me maybe 5-10 minutes TOPS to put up, probably less, I can’t remember.. but this new Coleman Instant Tent took me 4 minutes! I timed myself if you need to know..
The new Instant Tent is already hooked up with the poles, you just need to extend those poles and lock them into place! No more searching for the poles and poking them through the loops on the side of the tents. It is done for you! This is definitely a time saver and if “I” can put it up with two excited (and I mean EXCITED) little kids running around me, in 4 minutes, then heavens, any one can put this up! I did need my 5-year-old to hold up a part of the tent for me, but if no one was around I could have just held it up against a tree or in my case, a wall 😉
Now, these pictures DO NOT this tent justice. This tent is really big and spacious. If I had been a good girl, I would have just put it up outside, but since our long grass needs mowing tomorrow, I did not see the point in that one.
Back to how spacious, this tent is. Heck, it should be, it sleeps EIGHT people! Whoosh! What does the size of this tent fit? Well, for starters eight humans.., 2 queen airbeds and the center height is 76″!! It is 14’x8′, so that gives you a bit of the large size it really is.

Now, I am certainly pleased with this tent so far. But, I have not actually used it outdoors yet so I have not checked to see if it really is waterproof or not (in some of the reviews of this tent on their site, it says it leaks 🙁 ), nor have I had the opportunity to take it down and put it away, yet. So, I don’t know what my reactions will be when I do that. But for now, I am pleased with this tent. Though it does NOT take me only a minute to put up (takes me 4), it is easy to put up and a time saver.
