A versatile and well made family tent, the Roman Explorer 9 Dome Tent has the versatility of 3 rooms with dividers and extendable awnings on each side making it an ideal tent for a family getaway.
The geodesic frame consists of durawrap fibreglass poles and combines with a 3000mm waterhead fly for optimum protection when the weather turns sour. Extra large “D” doors and windows at each end provide ventilation in balmy weather and the side awnings create extra shade.
Multiple internal storage pockets, lockable storage compartments at each end and a skylight in the main room combine with handy features including power point access points to each room and reflective strips on the floor at each entrance to complete a versatile and functional solution to your family escapes.
great family tent, lots of room, good quality fabric, flooring, zips and poles
.. everything has been as described .. actually, a lot more room than I anticipated .. but the real test was during a recent torrential downpour, lasting many hours .. Happy to confirm the tent stayed beautifully dry .. sure, it doesn't go up in a flash, but the extra time ensures the very noticeable structural integrity .. and everybody notices it too .. yep, for the price, unbeatable value
Just took our new Roman explorer for a camping trip over Easter. Although we had no extreme weather to test the tent really out, we found it to be a great size for our family of 4, with all the functionalities we would imagine. It did take a while to set up, but we guess this time will be redusesd with practise.
Good family tent ,plenty of room inside for luggage as well as bedding. Pretty good quality & value for money.
I am looking for something that is easy to set up.
This tent takes around 30 minutes to set up with two people once you've gotten to know the tent so if you'd like a traditional pole dome tent, this is a pretty easy option however if you'd like something else to consider that's really quick and relatively foolproof, perhaps take a look at the Instant up range by clicking here.
Feel free to give us a call if you'd like us to walk you through the pros and cons of each.
Is the packed size (85 x 23 x 27cm) genuine? I'm considering this against the Coleman Chalet 9 CV and this is half the volume (vs 88 x 50 x 26cm from Coleman website). The Chalet 9 is a bit bigger but doesn't seem enough to explain the difference - what am I missing?
Those dimensions of the Explorer 9 are genuine, and as for the difference in size - we're not too sure the exact reason but it could just be that the Chalet 9 is slightly bigger so it packs down a little bulkier.
Tents are always more tightly rolled straight from the factory, so you may want to allow for a little bit extra space for the packed dimensions of the Explorer 9 as well.
Hi, just wondering if poles are colours coded for easy assembly. thanks
Hi Bonnie. Great question. The poles are both colour coded and sized according to their location. The tent features coloured tabs for the relevant poles to make installation so much easier.
Hi, could you please tell me the floor space of the individual rooms. Thanks
Still deciding on a tent, for mostly coastal camping, for a family of 4 and have heard good reviews on Coleman Chalet 9, but we're curious about this brand of tents esp the extending version of this roman explorer, as to how it compares to the chalet. We really like the blackwolf turbo lite range, but have heard bad reviews about condensation as the fly doesn't completely cover windows. Hence now looking at dome tents.
