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.


Hi There. I am going camping at Christmas with 3 boys and myself. Do you think we could manage to set this tent up. My oldest boy is 12 years old? I can't decide which would be a good tent for us 4 with enough space in case it rains and we need to spent time indoors ;)1 answer

Could you please suggest some easy to set up tents with enough space for us all.

G'day Sabine,

You should find that you'll be able to set up the Roman Explorer 9 Extended Dome Tent with just yourself and the boys. This tent will give you plenty of room for sleeping as well as indoor activities if the weather is bad. It might be best to give us a call on 1300 914 007 and we can have a chat to identify what your main needs are so we can suggest a range of options.

Roman Explorer 9 Extended vs the Coleman Chalet 91 answer

Hi, Cant decide between the Roman Explorer vs the Coleman Chalet 9... We note that Coleman is slightly bigger but not too fussed about that. Also note the Roman has a extended Dome which is a plus for us. The thing that concerns us is the fact that not much known about the Roman brand and few reviews compared to the popular Coleman... Can you tell us more about the Roman 9 and why are they not as popular as the Coleman? Have any of your customers ever had any concerns re the Roman 9 extended Dome tent? Can any of the windows open from the inside? Thanks Heaps, Kerryn

G'day Kerryn,

Coleman has been a long-standing company in the Australian camping market and has a great reputation, this is probably one of the main reasons they are so popular. There's definitely nothing wrong Roman, they are a brand that's owned by Companion, a long-standing, more recognisable brand. We've not had any concerns coming back to us about the Roman Explorer 9 Extended Dome Tent at all. The windows on the Roman can only be opened and closed from the outside, they don't have internal privacy screens.

Assembly time1 answer

How long does it take to set up the tent? We've been looking at instant up tents as we have a young family but this layout suits us best.

G'day Chris,

I'd suggest that the Roman Explorer 9 Extended Dome Tent would probably take about half an hour to set up if you had someone to help you with a few of the more difficult parts with the poles.

There are small mesh windows in each of the bedrooms on the Roman Explorer 9 Extended Dome Tent but the curtains in these rooms are solid.

Can you open the windows from inside?1 answer

Is there a zipper from inside to get to the fly for opening the windows? Or it must be done outside only?

- 3134(1 year ago)

G'day Adam,

With the Roman Explorer 9 Extended Dome Tent, any window that is built into the fly will need to be opened from the outside.

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

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

- SUNSHINE COAST MC, QLD(2 years ago)
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 answer

- ABERFOYLE PARK, SA(3 years 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.
- Snowys(3 years ago)

Can this tent be pitched without the extension?1 answer

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.

- HEATHCOTE, NSW(3 years ago)
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.
