If you’ve got a massive group of campers to house, then chances are you’re going to need one huge and liveable tent to keep everyone out of each other’s hair. The Family 12 Dome Tent from Oztrail features four rooms that can be used for sleeping, living or screen rooms due to the flexible layout of this tent. With enough space for 12 adults, you’ll have plenty of space for the whole family.
Everyone will be able to stroll in and out comfortably without having to stoop, as this tent allows for plenty of head room for even the tallest of campers. You can get some extra shelter out of this tent, as the awnings can be pegged out for shade which for relaxing on a warm day without getting burnt.
You can adjust the inner tent to reflect whatever conditions you’re in year round. In chilly conditions you can leave the polyester panels zipped up to trap warmth, or on hot summer days you can open them up as the No-See-Um mesh will keep out biting insects while allowing a fresh breeze. The heat taped seams will keep you dry when the weather turns, and the UVtex treatment help protect from the harsh rays of the sun while also making it waterproof. For a spacious and restful family trip, you can depend on the Family 12 Dome Tent from Oztrail.
Very easy to set up and pack up. If you buy additional poles you can really open it up for extra breeze. Front entrance is annoying with the fly as it doesn't have a middle zip, so getting in and out when it is raining is difficult.
Wondering how long it takes to set the tent up.
There probably isn’t an exact figure that I could give you, but if I had to take a guess I would say due to the size it going to be about 30-45 minutes to set up.
Oztrail say that it is easier to set up with two people, so if you were to set it up by yourself it may take you a bit longer as it is quite a large tent so if you have someone on hand it will be a lot faster.
As for ease, as it’s a dome style tent, you’re going to have to lay it out, peg it down, assemble the poles, and thread them through, attach the fly and guy it out so it should be fairly standard to set up.
I just wanted to understand a little more about the warranty, does it cover the poles?
The warranty for the Family Dome 12 Tent covers material or manufacturing defects of the tent, but it won’t cover normal wear and tear or misuse of the tent. You see the full warranty on Oztrail website here if that helps. If in the event you have any trouble, just come back to us directly and we’ll sort everything out for you Jacquie.
We would more than likely use this tent back to front and access through the rear door - so that there would effectively be three bedrooms off a central entry area. What kind of door is at the back and would there be any foreseeable issues using the back as an entry point?
The Oztrail Family 12 Dome Tent has a D-shape door at the rear with a mesh and solid option. As far as we know there would be no problem using the rear door as your main entry point – whatever works best for you!
Hi, how many poles are included wit this tent? What are the key differences between this and the Villa Dome tent, which you no longer stock?
As far as I can find from looking at the older catalogues from the supplier, The Family 12 dome is overall a slightly smaller and lighter model than the Villa Dome, though they have a very similar layout.
The Family 12 has smaller sleeping rooms, larger living space areas, and bigger awnings with an overall 100cm shorter width.The Family 12 is also 4.5kg lighter than the Villa Dome.
We don’t actually have the Family 12 on display so I can’t confirm the number for the tent itself, but from looking at the structure it should have 5 hoop shaped poles plus 2 awning poles. The extra awning poles as shown in the third picture of the descriptions are not included with the Family 12 tent.
