I stumbled on this on YouTube. Now I want one to go in my trailer. These tents are from Australia. Don't know the cost. Don't know about shipping from Down Under, but you've got to see this!

Pretty cool tent but pricey. The AT6, 6 man is $1100 Australian which converts to around $900 US.

About 3 years ago, someone posted a small pull around trailer with the same sort of the same system on it. Something happened to the company and doing a google search is nearly impossible.

Here is the Kelty version. Way cheeper, but looks a bit slower.

We carry one of these, a 10'x14' 8 man Coleman Instant Tent. Got it & the rainfly for $188 from Amazon just recently. This was our camping upgrade for the year from the 9'x10' 6 man version of the same tent.
We can set either one up & have it staked out in less than 2 minutes. Have been very pleased with the 6 man for the past 4 years & fully expect to enjoy the additional 50 sq. ft. with the 8 man for years to come.
It really does take a lot of the stress out of camping when the set up & tear down can be done in under 5 minutes total. We camp more often & see more places.

The 4 person tent is US$480. (Retail - probably searching Google or Ebay, could possibly find it less expensive.)

A hand pump inflated tent! Cool idea!
I like camping and I would consider something like this, but my wive insists on a credit card inflated hotel room.

Mine thinks camping means anything with fewer than three stars or diamonds. :lol:

It looks like the Coleman is the winner as fastest to setup (under one minute) and least expensive. I do wonder about it not having a built in fly, but they say it works. I'd love to have one of these in the trailer--just in case.


Thanks for sharing, Mr. Whiskey. :thumbup:

You're welcome CC. The only thing we didn't like about it was having to buy the fly separate. I see on their site now they call it an Instant Cabin, & it comes fly included. For the price though, I jus' bought the older discontinued model & the fly on Amazon. Came out way cheaper & I like the darker colors anyway.
