A functional family tent, with a little extra room, the Roman Explorer 9 Extended Dome Tent consists of a main tent with three internal rooms, a side vestibule for increased living space – ideal for large families.

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 extendable 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 and reflective strips on the floor at each entrance to complete a spacious and functional solution shelter for up to 9 people.

Great family base camp

This is a fantastic tent. Easy to set up (longer than 2 hiking tents but not all that bad) heaps of room and storage with endless options for cross ventilation and weather protection.
I have been camping since I was a teenager in every condition and climate you can think of and now being able to accommodate my entire family (wife and 2 kids) is great. Exactly what we were after. The quality is in line with cost and service is second to none. Thank you.


Do the mesh panels at the front have a polyester awning / panel that can be rolled down? 1 answers

I can't tell by the picture. Thank you :)

Hi Tina, I assume you are referring to the mesh panels on each side of the 'extended' section of this tent. If so, then there are flaps that zip closed so this space can be enclosed on all sides excluding the floor. You can just make it out in the picture if you click to zoom the image, the closest side has the panel rolled up, whilst the farthest has it zipped closed.

Does the extended dome have a mesh screen at the front or just the solid fly as cover?1 answers

- ABERFOYLE PARK, SA(1 year ago)
Hi Sue, the 'extended' part of this tent consists only of a door and mesh windows incorporated into the flysheet. In other words, if you were to pitch the tent without the fly, the 'extended' section would not be there.

Can this tent be pitched without the extension?1 answers

Can this tent be pitched like the Explorer 9 without the extension? There may be times when the extension is not needed or there isn't room.

Hi John, we get this question a lot and unfortunately the extended section of the tent is actually a sewn in portion of the fly which is not removable. You could pitch the inner alone without the extension, but if you need the fly for weather protection then you will need to erect the whole thing.
