Capable of sleeping four or six depending on the size you choose, the Big Agnest Big House Tent is truly a big house â in the woods, at the ocean side or wherever else you like to camp.
Give this review a read, and see if this tent is the right fit for you and yours.
Car campers like the Big House for a number of reasons:
Depending on the model, the Big House retails for about $300 to $360. Considering its spaciousness, stand-up height, airiness and durable construction, the price makes sense.
One area of concern, though, is the tent's ability to repel water without the optional vestibule. You shouldn't have to buy one family tent for the dry months and one for the wetter months, but if you only camp in August, you could do a lot worse than the Big House.
Big Agnes Big House Tent Specifications (4-person / 6-person)
Campers are pleased with the ease with which they can put the Big House up. Even one person can assemble the big boy in just a few minutes.
There are two large doors, both of which feature an awning-like cover to keep rain from leaking in during a downpour. The front door even has a welcome mat.
A dozen mesh pockets line the inside near the floor, providing storage space for all kinds of things.
The optional footprint helps increase the life of your tent by preventing abrasion, while a separate vestibule is available for both the four- and six-person models, adding and extra 52 to 64 square feet to the interior.
A lot of users think the add-on vestibule should come with the tent, but it doesn't. Without the vestibule, the tent has problems in heavy rain.
Bugs seem to be attracted to the vestibule and the color of the tent. Yuck!
The wrap-around mesh design is great for ventilation on warm nights, but it doesn't provide any privacy, forcing you to put up the rain fly if you need to change.

Perfect for big families who enjoy car camping, this tent isn't bulky when packed up, and it's so simple to erect, you can have the kids do it while you start cooking.
Although it'll cost you can extra $100+, we recommend you opt for the add-on vestibule to provide better rain protection and more privacy.
