When you plan a big camping trip, it is important to make sure everybody is comfortable and has enough space. The last thing you want is everybody crammed into rooms, soaked-through from the rain, having to face putting a complicated tent back into its too-small bag the next morning. What you need is something that helps you appreciate everything the great outdoors has to offer, without the fuss and with all the comfort.

Some of the tent models included in this review article are not just designed for sleeping in – you can also have some living space so everything is not crowded into one room. They are not just tents – they are homes away from home and soon you will find any excuse to pack up and get away for the weekend. Investing in a good tent is the best way to encourage families to get outside and have some fun in nature.

Here, we have considered some of the best 4 rooms tents and bigger that are currently on the market, from a range of sizes and prices. It is all about making the right choice for you.

Types of 4 Room Tent

Cabin Tents

A cabin tent is usually made in the style of…well, a cabin. It’s walls are straight like a house with large windows, so it almost creates a home in the middle of a forest. They usually have a greater height so are easier to move around in inside. We have some excellent cabin-style tents reviewed in this article.

Tunnel Tents

Tunnel tents are created with slanted windows and are built in more of a dome shape. This shape is good for keeping rain from coming into your tent, and can easily use room dividers to separate your living and sleeping space.

Considerations When Choosing 4 Room Tents

Materials

When you are choosing a 4 room tent, it is important you decide what material will suit your needs best. Some materials might cause allergic reaction due to what it is made out of, so here you need to consider quality over cost.

Layout

Are you planning for large group excursions in far away forests? Perhaps you are looking for something to pack quickly for a short weekend trip. Either way, you want to ensure that you can maximise the space available to you. As you will probably be spending most of your time exploring outdoors, it is important that your sleeping area is comfortable and can accommodate everyone you bring along. Most of the tents included in the list come with dividers for the layout, so you can create one large living area, or divide it up into smaller sleeping rooms for the kids.

Consider tents that feature storage pockets so you can make the most out of the floor area without it being taken up by too much gear.

Weatherproofing

No matter whereabouts you live, buying a tent with weatherproofing facilities is crucial to your trip being a success. The wrong material can cause issues even in sunny weather! For the warmer months, great air ventilation is key so you should be looking for great mesh material in your camping tents. But anybody can find themselves caught in a storm, and weather like that shouldn’t put you off camping. There are plenty of tents that are suitable for all weather conditions. An important feature to look for is a great rain fly to keep the rain from your mesh roof, but also features such as slanted windows in tunnel tents which also help prevent the rain from getting in.

Another feature to consider are strong and sturdy tent poles to help keep your tent well-grounded in all sorts of wind. Anything flimsy won’t withstand even the smallest of storms.

Size and Weight

Are you looking for something you can quickly pack up? Perhaps your camping trip also involves a lot of hiking and exploring. In that case, you will want something that is easy to put up, pack away again and is also light enough to be carried long distances. Tents are great as you can divide all the different pieces between your group to share the load, but the more heavy-duty camping tents might need a car boot to get all the way to your camping spot!

If some of the members of your group are particularly tall, then the cabin-style tents might be more suitable – these are often the ones which offer the most height and are easiest to move around in inside.

Rooms

How many people do you want to take with you on your trip? Are there young children – or teenagers? If youngsters are involved, especially the latter, you might want to consider the larger tents that offer a living room as well as sleeping rooms. Most tents that have multiple rooms will also come with dividers that will offer even more privacy. You might wish to take those dividers down during the day so you make the most out of what the room has to offer, and put them up again as if you were right back at home.

Extra Features

The price of the tent is a big feature to consider before making your purchase. In the case of tents, the price will often reflect the quality. If you are looking for something that guarantees durability and water resistance, then you might be looking at the more pricier options available. However, this is a product that is built to last you years so it is always worth the investment.

Conclusion

Thank you for taking the time to read about which 4+ room tents we believe will be best suited for you. There are plenty of options available to you, so it is important to find something affordable but will last you a long time, provide plenty of space for your group and keep you safe and dry from weather. If you have any further questions, have a look at the frequently asked questions below.
