This cabin tent is configured for easy set up, even though it can shelter up to ten people.
Coleman’s unique “WeatherTec System” provides the comfort factor with a secure barrier against bad weather.
Erecting the tent is made a simple exercise because of the supplied color-coded poles.
Please watch the video below to see what an easy to set up tent this is. It takes just one adult with a little, err, “help” from one of the kids. Tying up the dog during this process is also helpful.
A combination of design features contribute to the WeatherMaster reputation for ease and comfort
- A 17- foot by 9-foot footprint makes it an ideal family tent.

- Color-coded poles.

The weatherMaster10 locks out the elements when needed, but has a well designed comfort system to provides superb ventilation control.
The secret to the excellent ventilation in this two-room tent, is the mesh ceiling which maintains an ideal air flow to keep things fresh inside.
This Coleman cabin tent allows you to take charge of the ventilation via “Variflow” adjustable airflow system.
It features a vented cool-air privacy port and vent window.
Small things can make a big difference, such as a handy electrical access port which lets you run a power cord into the tent from an outside power source.
Bring the power safely in where it’s needed and keep the weather outside.
Another simple but helpful feature is an interior storage pocket to keep the interior organized.
Below is a sample of reviews I’ve paraphrased from people who have used the Coleman WeatherMaster and were moved to share their thoughts.
My fiance and I don’t have a family, but we wanted a large tent.
After shopping around online and in stores, we chose the WeatherMaster 10. It was a great purchase.
Though I’d say it isn’t big enough for 10 people plus all their gear, the tent was surprisingly tall.
I’m 6’1″ and it was nice to be able to walk from end to end without having to bend over.
I like that the provided room divider does not reach the very top of the tent. That allowed for a single hanging light to shine on both sides.
A few reviews said this tent was difficult to set up, but I was able to set it up for the first time within 20 minutes, and that included time spent reading directions.
It is so simple that I now have it memorized after one set up.
Now it goes up within 10 minutes.
The hinged door changed the way I think about tents.
This cabin tent has plenty of room, and I have very few complaints.
I won’t complain about the fact that getting the tent back into the provided bag is difficult, I simply use a larger duffle bag.

I did a lot of research before deciding on the Coleman WeatherMaster 10 tent.
This family tent is the perfect size for me, my wife and two young daughters to camp out over a long weekend.
It was very easy to set up, although the directions sewn inside the bag can be a little hard to read.
Set it up before you head out, to familiarize yourself with it. You will see it is very easy.
It is a very large and roomy tent.
I was happy with the construction.
The seams are very strong as well as the floor, and the whole tent feels very resilient to me.
I highly recommend this tent, and know you will enjoy it as well.

We bought the Coleman WeatherMaster for our family of four humans and two big dogs and I think it is just the right size, even slightly bigger than we need.
We haven’t used the room divider yet but it looks easy enough to attach and would give you two nice large separate spaces, each with its own door.
The tent handled two downpours, plus high winds, in a storm with only a few quarter-sized puddles on the floor.
Thinking about it now, I reckon the puddles were due to the rainfly not being completely tightened and guyed out yet.
It is not the best tent to take when night temps are freezing or below, so is pretty much a three season tent.
My 5-year-old was in and out of this tent about a thousand times over the weekend camping trip and the rigid door was a huge hit .
Have not used this family tent with the dogs yet, but I think the floor will hold up well because it is a thick tarp, just like the big blue tarps you use for yardwork or covering stuff.
The Coleman cabin tent was very easy to set up, with only three main poles and a few smaller ones for the door and each end.
My chief complaint is that the windows don’t go down low enough.
But, overall I think it is a pretty good tent and would recommend it to any family.

No need to worry if it’s rainy outside, you’ll stay dry inside.
This tent is engineered to keep things watertight.
And it is not just the water from above that is kept at bay.
The inverted floor seam design is integral to keeping your feet dry as well.
This tent is turned inside out to sew the floor to the wall.
Needle holes and seam thread are inside the tent, and not in contact with the weather.
The seam is taped and double stitched, ensuring a water-impervious floor.
The Coleman WeatherMaster is an impressive tent, but nothing is perfect.
If there is going to be a leak exposed, it is most likely the fly seam where the ridge pole puts pressure against the needle holes.
By taping over that seam, Coleman has made the rainfly more water-resistant.
You will still be advised to use a seam sealer on it. It will further waterproof all seams it is applied to.
This family tent is built to keep you dry with little effort on your part because it’s all in the design features.
- Polyurethane-coated fabric
- Water-repellent thread
- Curved roof design to funnel off water.
- Leak-free seams.
- Fully-taped rainfly seams.
- Doors and windows covered by rainfly.
- Velcro frame attachments.
