Hi all,

We're looking at buying a four man tent with a small living area at the front, we like the Coleman Cabral 4 for the blackout bedrooms and the size seems decent enough, has anyone got this tent? Or could recommend something similar?

Any recommendations would be very welcome thank you

I got this last week, thought it was a good deal. But would recommend going for the bigger for 4 people to sleep in. I only plan on using this for 2 people. decathlon.co.uk/air…tml

I had a Coleman 4 man tent for a while (Coastline?). It offered good space but I found it a pain to put up as the poles had to be threaded nearly through the whole arched profile of the tent. I got rid of it for an Outwell Birdland, which I love. I would add that although tents may be nominally "4 man", they won't be very comfortable if there are more than two (possibly 3) of you in there with your gear.

Thanks ever so I'll take a look at those, it's for two adults & a six year old. And we need the extra space to cook if needed.

I had a look at the Coleman tent that you mentioned and there are some nice features to it. They also seem to have addressed the design issue that I had with the Coastline 4 by reducing the length of the pole sleeves on the Cabral 4 and using clips to secure the flysheet to the bottom sections of the poles. This looks like a great improvement to the one that I wrestled with.

Please remember not to cook inside the tent unless the door's open, and even then with great care - sorry if this sounds preachy, but it's really dangerous (carbon monooxide build up and fire risk). Love camping and am sure you will have a great time, too.
