Coleman Red Canyon Tent

Coleman 8 Person Red Canyon Tent Review

Coleman 8 Person Red Canyon Tent
The Coleman 8 Person Red Canyon Tent is one of the most popular tents being sold on the internet today because of how affordable it is for its size (17 x 10 feet with 72 inches of height).  This is a great option for families or groups who don’t want to pay top dollar for a cabin sized tent that sleeps up to 14 people.  The Red Canyon can sleep up to 8 people comfortably with all the features and quality that Coleman tents provide.

Coleman’s WeatherTec Technology Sells Itself

WeatherTec protection is an unmatched feature among all camping tents on the market.  This feature ensures that you will stay dry in the event of heavy rain.  In order to ensure that you stay dry, Coleman makes sure that all of the seams are leak-free and that its rainfly (which covers doors and windows) tarp seams are fully taped.  It’s coated weather resistant polyester fabric is made with anti-wicking thread to ensure that water stays out.  Coleman also knows that the floors are vulnerable to leaks and intruding water, so they also made sure that their WeatherTec technology includes reliable water proof floors.  They have also tested their tents to make sure that their frames can withstand some pretty harsh winds.

Includes Privacy Walls

Although privacy walls are a lot more common in cabin sized tents, Coleman decided to include them in the Red Canyon Dome Tent as well.  This is nice for families who want to make sure they keep their items separated.  You can have anywhere from 1 to 3 separate rooms using its removable walls.

What Customers Are Saying About The Coleman 8 Person Red Canyon Tent

As the most popular sold tent on, it currently has 1882 written customer reviews with an average rating of 4.1 out of 5 starts, which is really good!

One of the most consistent comments and feedback that we found for the Red Canyon was how good it was with keeping the rain out.  One reviewer said that his tent was the “hang out place” for coffee and card games when it was pouring outside.  This speaks volumes about how big the tent is.  One reviewer said she fit 3 queen sized blow up mattresses inside and still had a little bit of room.

Set up doesn’t seem to be too much of a hassle.  It’s definitely not as quick as the Coleman Instant Tents. However, one reviewer said she was able to set it up by herself in 20 minutes.  So, if you add a hand or two, you can get it done much quicker.

A couple other reviewers mentioned that this is a good summer tent. This probably is not a good tent that to keep you warm during cold spring and fall nights.

Overall, we really like this tent because of the features and size it offers at it’s price.
