Coleman Sundome Tent Review: A Large, Family Camping Tent

by Lucy
(Texas)

My favorite camping tent is the Coleman Sundome Tent.

From the Frio, Comal, and Guadalupe rivers to Port Aransas on the Texas coast I love camping in this tent!

Its waterproof floor and leak free construction make it perfect for any type of camping. It's big enough for my husband 6'4" and I to both sleep comfortably and stands up well in the strong, Texas coast wind.

We can actually fit an air mattress in the tent, which makes the camping even more comfortable.

It has nice, sturdy zippers that will stand up to some wear and tear, unlike some cheaper quality tents out there.

At close to $63 dollars and with a 5 year warranty, I believe the purchase of this tent was a wise choice. It is easy to assemble and disassemble and comes with a storage bag, so absent minded people like myself don't have to worry about losing stakes or poles.

My husband and I look forward to the many weekend camping trips we will enjoy in this tent.

There is nothing that I hate about this tent, and nothing I would change other than possibly the color (blue would be my preference).

Just talking about this tent makes me want to load up the car and head outdoors!

I've always bought Coleman tents, and am loyal to the brand due to their quality products. Whether you'll be camping for 2 nights or 2 weeks, on the beach or at a campground - the Coleman Sundome Tent is the perfect choice for everyone.

Well, maybe not for everyone, but the Coleman Sundome tent certainly is the best camping tent for me and my family!

My Coleman Sundome Tent Review: Best Cheap Tent for Families

by Ben
(Washington)

I have a Coleman Sundome tent which I bought at Sears for 49.99. I purchased the Sundome three years ago and have used it on many occasions, including one in regards to residence during a period of homelessness.

The tent came with fiberglass rods and frame which was attached to the fabric of the tent by hooks rather than sliding through the fabric to create a set frame which for the most part is exceedingly difficult to set up.

The stakes are proper in the sense that when the floor of the Sundome is laid flat, there is no bagging and the floor stays stretched flat, allowing me to take full advantage of the spaciousness therein.

I think the only downside was the fact that over the course of me using it, I had misplaced a single rod. This issue caused one corner of the tent to be slightly lower than the rest of it. And while the tug from the other three corners was enough to keep the frame intact and expanded, having one pole section missing was a bit of a pain.

The Sundome can fit 2 to 3 people and it has done so more than once.

The rain cover is great and I never encountered a problem with the tent getting wet inside. It was spacious enough to provide room for clothing, a sleeping bag, various important documents, all my belongings and a laptop computer, along with a variety of blankets.

So all in all, for around fifty dollars, I was kept safe and comfortable in the Coleman Sundome from Sears.

My Coleman Sundome 2 Tent Review: Bad Tent, But Great Modifications

by Anne Chovy
(Mesa, Arizona)

I used a Sundome 2 and a Kelty Yellowstone 2 from September 2010 to January 2011. Overall, I used the Sundome about 95% of the time because it was easy to set up and had more head room.

As modified it worked out OK.

The modifications I made were as follows, first the fly is so poorly designed that it only covers the screened area of the tent by less than a few inches.

Any wind or wind and rain flows into the tent and I found this disturbing. I solved most of the problem by putting an old REI tent fly between the Coleman tent body and the Coleman tent fly. Later I would use a blue 5X7 tarp.

The second problem I had was wicking, which I solved by 'Puppy Papering' the tent floor with newspaper.

All in all I got my $25 dollars worth.

My Wife & I Love Our Coleman Sundome Elite Tent!

by Anonymous

My Wife and I love our Coleman Sundome Elite!!

We've had our Sundome Elite for a year and a half. It's been a great tent.

Now, it doesn't go up in a snap but it takes me about 15-minutes. We've been caught in two rain storms and have no problems with it leaking.

The first rain storm I didn't pay attention to where I set the tent up and when the rain came we had a small creek running under the tent.

The only downfall is the light system inside the tent. The bottom of the light fixture was loose and twisted and didn't work the second camping trip.

I took it apart and tightened the bottom screw and it works fine.

I would highly recommend this tent for the weekend camper.

You can buy it for $150 at Amazon.com
