A 3 room tent suitable for campsite parties, the Outdoor Connection Brampton offers sleeping space for 12, superior ventilation and numerous shade options, and is still easy to erect.

The ‘Hornet Pole System’ maximises internal space, while two central zippered divider doors with mesh and solid panels create private sleeping areas adequately ventilated by large windows with ‘Zip-Up’ privacy screens.

Mesh and solid panels feature in the four internal doors, while external doors in the fly, along with flaps over the side windows can all be pegged out as awnings to let the breeze in, and keep the sun out.

Outdoor Connection have not stopped here with practical features, extras such as internal organiser pockets, three power cord access points, door locks and integrated zippered guy rope pockets to make the Brampton the ultimate family dome tent.

Love it

We have had arched family dome tents for years. This has so much more space with the more vertical walls. Super flexible in that you can unzip floor to ceiling flawier mesh and fold out multiple awning panels. Have had a great experience in the rain with plenty of room inside and space under the awning fro all to sit - looking forward to a hot summer and opening up to be almost all flawier with cross breezes. Only negative I can find is slightly lightweight floor material than our last tent and hence not as robust. All the other benefits more than outweigh this. Highly recommend.

Brampton Family Dome Tent Rocks

2 adults and 6 kids in the family. Previously we had managed camping trips with three 3-man dome tents. These were a bit worse for wear after years of use, so had to decide whether to upgrade to four new 3-man dome tents (kids had all grown!) or go for something like the Brampton. Bit the bullet with the Brampton and it lived up to all expectations. Awesome fly saw us through some very dodgy weather, plenty of sleeping room for the 8 of us. No complaints about this tent.

Brampton Dome Tent

The tent was really easy to setup and pack away as the tent bag that was actually big enough to fit the tent. The quality of material was a lot better than I had anticipated for the price of the tent. I would recommend this tent to anyway who is planning on camping in one stop for more that a couple of days.

Outdoor Connection - Brampton

Very happy with our Brampton tent. Great quality and easy to set up. It is a big tent at 6mtrs long, but it is nice having so much room, with 2 kids under 3yrs old. Full floor and great having the full side open as an awning. 4 Poles for awning are included. Also very happy with service with Snowy's, very helpful on the phone. Ordered tent on a Thursday, got it the next morning from interstate.

Awesome Tent

I have a family of 5 and have had other tents before but nothing compares to this. Great size, fantastic ventilation, easy to put up and withstanded some strong winds on our recent trip. Highly recommended.

Brampton tent

Love our new tent. Easy to put up, lots of room and the near vertical walls make a big difference.

Excellent Family Tent

Very impressed. I followed the instructions and put up & down myself while my wife looked after our toddlers. Good for a family of four and great design, quality and windows.

Great tent

Fantastic family tent, we have been on a couple of trips with it and find it easy to set up and take down. Very spacious. I love that the bag is big enough to get the tent back in! Definitely recommend this tent.

A real quality family tent.

This is a great quality Aussie made family tent. Straight forward to pitch and take down. A nice thick fly that you can tell will keep the rain out. So far it has handled a light rain without a drop inside. What I really liked was entry points at each end and each side. This means you don't have to think so much where you need to pitch it and also makes it easier to put the fly on as there is no back or front. Heaps of room for a family.


Can you zip the awnings down?1 answers

I am not keen on setting up the awnings as we have a large shelter. Can you zip them down? Also can you roll them up to expose the windows?

- Gisborne (4 weeks ago)

Hi Cam, the fabric flaps that form the awnings are actually the flysheet extended as awnings. The image on our website also shows an optional side wall attached and extended from the end awning (it encloses the corner closest to you as you look at the image). With this side wall removed all other flaps can be zipped shut to enclose the tent, or rolled up rather than extended as an awning so the mesh doors/windows are exposed.

I hope this answers your question, let meknow if you need any further clarification.

How are the rooms divided?1 answers

Can you zip each room closed? I can't see a way to close off a room in the pictures. Thanks

- Brisbane(4 weeks ago)

Hi John! There are internal zippered doors, both mesh and solid, so you can either zip up just the fly screen or the solid panel to create some privacy for each room.

Tent comparison?1 answers

I can't decided between this tent and the Coleman dark room one, is there one that you would recommend over the other? Have you seen many issues with the easy up tents?

- Yarraville Victoria (1 month ago)

G'day Karen,

When considering buying a tent you need factor the style of camping, space, and your level of experience – so it really comes down to personal preference.

We generally get really positive feedback on the entire Outdoor Connection range, as they make high quality products that represent good value for money. If have a gander at the reviews on the Instant Up tents, most users say that they found the tent well made and easy to use so it's difficult to put on over the other. As long as you set either of these tents up properly then you shouldn’t have any issues.

If you want a lot of space, shade options, and you don’t mind spending a little longer setting up as you go on longer trips then the Brampton would suit best. If you want something you can set up easily for a weekend trip, you don’t mind a little less space, and you find the sun-blocking fly appealing- then the Dark Room would be the best option.

What are the extras accessories do I need?1 answers

I am trying to work out how to set up the full awning system linking the side to the front of the tent.

- CANBERRA, ACT(2 months ago)

Hi Monique, this tent comes with everything you need to get going, but if you want the full awning there are a few extra things you'll need. To link the front and side awnings, you'll need to purchase the Outdoor Connection Awning Side Wall (snowys code 42243). You'll also need a couple of extra awning poles and some guy ropes. We don't have any guy ropes on our website but give us a call if you'd like to add some to your order - 1300 914 007. The tent comes with four awning poles, but you may want more, depending on how many of the awnings you want up at one time. According to my calculations if you had all awnings up, including the side walls, you could use up to 18 awning poles. Most people won't have that many, but will have the awnings up on one side of the tent and change it during the day as the sun moves. The awning poles are also available on our website - snowys code 44009. I hope this helps, feel free to give us a call if you would like to talk further.

Electrical cord inlets1 answers

The description states 3 electrical cord inlets. Can you pls tell me where these are and are there zips or holes for cords to go through the internal dividers also?

- WATERWAYS, VIC(3 months ago)

Hi Natalie, We don't currently have the Brampton set up because it takes up a lot of room so I can't be completely sure where the power cord access points are. There is definitely one just below and to the left of the middle door so I would assume there is one going in to each of the three rooms from the outside. I'm also unsure as to whether there are power cord access points on the internal dividers. Hopefully some of that is helpful

A little unclear if the windows to the bedrooms Have solid panels as well as mesh. Concerned would be cold in winter gaping if mesh only and can't stop ventilation."?1 answers

We don't camp in snow but every now and then in winter cold weather. Wondering if too ventilated and would be better with coleman9. Also which is quicker to set up this coleman?

- MELBOURNe(3 months ago)

Hi Brendon, The Brampton is a great winter option as there are internally accessible covers on the doors and windows to provide privacy and provide extra warmth by reducing that ventilation in winter.

Do th fly sections zip together to make one big awning? 1 answers

In the picture it looks like the awning is one section. Are these single panels or seperate bits that zip together?

- Nambour (5 months ago)
The three panels on the long side zip together Chris, but the extra sidewall which is shown in the image covering the corner only features zips along one side, you can see the gap where a zip does not exist in the image.

How would this go for winter camping?1 answers

- Maitland(7 months ago)
G'day Hayley - Depends on what winter conditions you're referring to. Snow - not ideal, this sort of tent isn't built for it. Rain - the waterhead rating on this fella is pretty good, so it'll take a fair downpour. Wind - like with most larger family tents it'll rock and roll a bit as it has quite a high centre of gravity and a lot of height to catch those gusts, but if properly pegged and guyed, you won't see it sailing away. Hope that helps. Cheers, Paul

Weather resistant? 1 answers

Have you had any reports or experience with the brampton holding up well in windy /stormy conditions?

- PORT MACQUARIE, NSW(8 months ago)
No feedback specifically relating to your query Karl. It's usually the negative feedback that we hear about, and we have very few issues with the Outdoor Connection brand in general. These larger tents from their range are very waterproof, offering 2000 - 3000mm waterhead ratings which is more than adequate for heavy rain. As for wind, none of these large tents are specifically designed for performance in windy weather, but rest assured that when set up in full including all guy ropes and peg points, these will provide reliable protection in bad weather, they will just move wobble and flap around more than a tent that sits lower to the ground.

Light/lantern hooks2 answers

Hi, can you tell me how far the light/lantern hooks are apart (in cm) in each room? Also are there any light/lantern hooks in the centre side awning when up? Cheers

- Tasmania(8 months ago)
Hi Dale, I haven't got the Brampton set up to measure at the moment, so will have to get back to you on Monday or Tuesday with the answer to this one. As I'll need some help setting this one up. Stay tuned!
- Snowys(8 months ago)
Hey Dale, Nat asked if I could follow this up for you. As Nat mentioned we don't have a Brampton set up to confirm measurements for you sorry, and we are a little limited on space to be able to set one up (not to mention some current renovations). We do however have a Bedarra set up, and we can pretty safely assume the for the most part the same design is applied to both tents. I know for sure that there are no external lantern hooks in the side awnings, and on the Bedarra the internal lantern hooks are about 85 cm apart (2 in each room). I hope this is enough information for you, let me know if you need any further clarification.

light blocking1 answers

As a family it is important that the tent says relatively dark to allow for the kids to sleep longer/settle better. how does the brampton fair with this in comparison to the coleman instant 10 man?

- WERRIBEE, VIC(8 months ago)
Hi Brett, good question. The Coleman Gold series, being a predominately darker fabric, will do a slightly better job at keeping some of the light out, but it will be fairly light in both tents during the day. The polyester is quite good quality but is a reasonably thin material. A canvas tent would be somewhat better at blocking out the light as it’s a thicker material. I hope this helps, please feel free to give us a call on 1300 914 007 if you need.
- Snowys(8 months ago)

Could you please advise with the internal doors to the bedrooms are they mesh?1 answers

- GREENSBOROUGH, VIC(10 months ago)
Hi Kylie, the internal doors on the Brampton are what I refer to as 'double doors', they have mesh and solid panels giving you the option of both ventilation or privacy.
- Snowys(10 months ago)

so if it rains, to keep the tent dry, and water pooling on top of awning, you need to quickly pull the awning down?1 answers

- melb(10 months ago)
Not necessarily James. The end awning in particular facilitates three poles which helps the water run off by creating a peak. the flat awnings on the side may need to be monitored in heavy rain though, or at least angled downwards to allow water run off. In particularly heavy rain however, you would be best shutting the awnings all together.

What the dimensions with awnings up?1 answers

What are the dimensions of the Brampton tent with the side and end awnings up as per the photo?

- AVALON BEACH, NSW(11 months ago)
Hi Andrew, I don't have this information at hand sorry. I'll have to make a best guess based on the height of the doors being about 1.7m, and taking into account the slope of the walls which is minimal on the sides, and significant at the ends. Based on this, add about 1 metre to each end, and 1.5 metres to each side, making the external dimensions with the awnings up roughly 5.8 metres in width, and 8 metres in length. I hope this is enough information for you.

What are the loops (green) attached to the floor for?1 answers

We've had our Brampton for a few years now & used it in all types of weather & LOVE IT! We have 3small children. We occupy all three rooms for sleeping. I've noticed a few times on packing up the loops on the internal zipper frame? Can you advise what they are for?

- MCCRAE, VIC(11 months ago)
They are the 'Door Locks' Renee. There should be a plastic clip on the end of them that can be clipped to the zippers pulls making it hard to open the doors from the outside. Most Outdoor Connection tents now come with a combination padlock also so you can lock the zipper pulls together.

Comparison with Coleman tent1 answers

For a family of 4, camping 4 or 5 times a year, would you recommend the Brampton tent over a Coleman Chalet 9?

- NORTH SYDNEY, NSW(1 year ago)
Hi David, I couldn't recommend one over the other here. They are both great tents, well made with good warranties. The Brampton has the benefit of awnings all round which makes it versatile in a wide range of climates, the fabrics also feel heavier duty than the Coleman, but this comes at a higher price. We sell tons of the Coleman Chalet 9 dome tents, they come at a fantastic price and customers are very happy with their purchase. Personally, I like the Outdoor Connection Brampton for its versatility.

What is the weight of this tent and the dimensions when packed up?1 answers

- Brisbane(1 year ago)
Hi Tim, this tent comes in two packages when delivered, one with the tent, the other with poles. Combined the weight is about 31kg, the main tent measures 82L x 37W x 36H and the poles are 79L x 17W x 16H cm.

Awning poles1 answers

In the picture there loos to be 5 extra awning poles being used in addition to the 4 provided. Where can you get additional poles from or which ones do you stock that would be appropriate? Thanks

- Brisbane(1 year ago)
Hi Ella, any pole with a spigot (the point that fits through the eyelet) at one end will be suitable. We have some on our website under Tents & Shelters/Poles, Pegs & Ropes/Poles. Steel poles are cheaper, tough but quite heavy. Alloy poles are lightweight but often cost more.
- Snowys(1 year ago)

Interior Set-up1 answers

Does this tent have closures between the rooms. Not clear in pics but it doesn't look like you can actually section off the rooms from each other, purely for sleeping privacy.

- Ryde(1 year ago)
There are two internal zippered dividers Jen, these create three rooms inside the tent. Our customers generally use each end as sleeping quarters with the middle space being a living or storage area.
- Snowys(1 year ago)

Windows & awnings?1 answers

Are all the awnings actually the 'windows'? Are there interal window coverings too that can be zipped up from the inside for privacy?

- Mackay(1 year ago)
Hi Kathleen, internally accessible covers or 'privacy screens' feature on the doors and windows of the bedrooms. This offers privacy when the awnings are extended, or provides extra warmth in cooler months.
- Snowys(1 year ago)

does this tent come with the awnings or do you have to buy those separately1 answers

also, can you please advise what the best tarp/flooring option is to put under the tent that would reach out as far as the awning? costs to please. many thanks

- Melbourne(1 year ago)
Hi Nicky, it is the waterproof coverings over the doors of the Brampton fly sheet that extend out as awnings and there are four steel poles included for this. The picture on our website shows an optional sidewall attached to the LHS of the end awning, and extended to create a verandah around the tent, these are available separately. Regarding a ground sheet, we have an Oztrail Ultramesh 3.6m x 6m tarp that would cover under the tent, or you could use a combination of smaller tarps to extend under the awnings also, if you search Ultramesh in the search bar of our website you can view our range and pricing.
