Setting up a Coleman Instant Up tent in 2 Minutes Watch video

After hours in the car with a bunch of grumpy and WIFI- deprived vacationers, the last thing you want to do is make them wait while you spend the next hour figuring out how to put up your brand new tent.

With the latest Instant Up Silver 6P tent from Coleman, even the most impatient beginner can get this tent up and running in no time as the frame is connected and pre-attached. All you have to do is lay it down, spread out the fabric and extend the poles out from the hub until it locks into place. Then you can just chuck the waterproof fly over the top, so you can get a good night’s sleep knowing you won’t get soaked in the rain.

The interior is spacious, with enough floor space to fit in 2 queen sized mattresses and headroom to stand up. For the camping novice, or those on a time sensitive schedule you can’t go past an easy-use model like the Instant Up.

  • Steel instant up frame
  • Waterproof fly
  • 3 interior adjustable windows
  • Tested in 80kph wind conditions
  • Fits 2 queen air beds
  • Includes carry bag

Coleman 6 man tent

Perfect for our venturer scouts. Coped in wind and rainy conditions. Would just liek to see extendable poles on the awning poles to drop height rather than muck around with angles on the poes when it rains.

Not happy

I've only used my tent a few times, but it has not coped with wind at all. I'm assuming mine must be faulty somehow... We gave up last trip and had to stay in a cabin. Corners don't stay out in the wind.

G'day Fiona,

Thanks for getting in touch with us - sounds like we might be able to help. If you've got a sec, we'd like to run through how you're setting up your tent; guy roles, pegging it out, your awning etc, if you could give us a buzz (1300 914 007). Or, you can see our blog post 6 Ways to Storm & Weatherproof your Tent.

Unless you're camping in severe weather, the Coleman Instant Up Tents should hold strong in windy conditions. Laine :)

Even more amazing!

Two girls in their 20's? Nah! Think two elderly ladies in their late 60's. Quick, easy and convenient camping. Roomy and comfortable. Easy to pack up.

Think two girls in their 20’s going camping...... by themselves...... this tent was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in life. Literally took a few minutes to set up, high ceiling, spacious and has great air ventilation! Was so easy to pack up also! Definitely recommend this tent and cannot wait to use it even more!!

Packed dimensions 1 answer

Hi, could you please tell me the dimensions once it’s packed in the carry bag? Essentially the dimensions of the carry bag once packed. Just wanna make sure it fits my rooftop cargo bag. Thanks

- St Albans(4 months ago)

G'day Rav,

When packed down, in the bag, the Coleman Instant Up 6P Tent is 134L x 24W x 24H cm.

- Snowys(4 months ago)

could you please tell me the size of the canopy / awning area1 answer

I am thinking of attaching a shade cloth to this section of the tent and would appreciate your advice

- Padstow/Sydney(5 months ago)

G'day Steve,

Armed with my trusty tape measure, I've just sussed out the Coleman Instant Up 6P Tent that we've got set up on the shop floor. The awning area is about 1.5 x 2.1m.

Weather conditions 1 answer

Is this suitable autumn or winter whether condition ?

- Carlton (1 year ago)

G'day Gary, 

You sure could use the Instant Up 6 in autumn or winter, although you might want to consider the Instant Up Gold 6 - as this tent has a higher waterhead rating of 3000mm compared to 1500 for the standard Instant Up - so it might be a better option if you are planning on camping in areas that get a bit more rain.

what size tarp would you use?1 answer

what size tarp would you use underneath as a protector?

- 3089(1 year ago)

G'day Col, 

A popular tarp that we recommend for general use is the Ultramesh Tarp from Oztrail, for the Instant UP 6 there are two size options depending on how you want to set up your tent. 

If you want the tarp to just cover the underside of your Instant Up, then the 3.65 x 3.65 tarp is a good size for that. 

If you want the tarp to cover the area under awning of your tent, then the 3.05 x 4.88m size is what you should go for.

Purchase another flyover1 answer

Hi, I was wondering if you stocked replacement flyovers for this tent? We have the older version flyover that doesn't completely cover the tent, but its getting a couple holes in it. How much would it cost?

- 3137(1 year ago)

G'day Scott,

From time to time we can get spare parts out of Coleman for their Instant Up 6P Tent. Your best bet would be to give us a buzz on 1300 914 007 and our customer service team will be able to help you out with getting availability and a price on any spare parts you might need.

What is the differences between the Silver Series and the Gold Series?1 answer

I would like to know the differences between the Coleman Silver Series and the Coleman Gold Series?

- Buderim(1 year ago)

Hi Mel,

That's a great question! Essentially the Instant Up Gold range is slightly more heavy duty than the Instant Up Silver range. 

The Gold has a higher waterhead rating at 3000mm, stronger PVC floor, comes with an additional oversized 3 pole awning for the left or right side, and features slightly finer mesh.

I think that covers everything, but feel free let us know if you have any more queries about the range.

what accessories do i need for proper/ complete pegging down1 answer

I would like to know if all the pegs and guy ropes are included for complete pegging down of the tent. if i need any pegs, guy ropes, how many should i get?

- west wodonga(1 year ago)

G'day Tom, 

The Coleman Instant Up 6P tent comes with guy lines attached, and with pegs included - so you don't need to purchase anything seperately. As long as you peg everything out firmly you shouldn't have any issues with the stability of your Instant Up. 

- Snowys(1 year ago)

Is this the 2017 model?1 answer

- BULL CREEK, WA(1 year ago)

G’day Matt, the model that we are selling is indeed the latest 2016/17 Instant Up from Coleman.

- Snowys(1 year ago)

what is the difference between the 2 coleman tents priced at $299 & $2591 answer

i did ask earlier, however your answer then, still leaves me guessing on what im wanting to buy ??

- BUSSELTON, WA(1 year ago)

Hi Kev, I’m sorry you didn’t get the answer you were looking for originally, I can’t explain what happened there but I’ll try and sort this out for you now. The New Instant Up is replacing the older clearance model, the only difference is a colour update and price. Regarding general features - if you’re looking for a family/group tent that is really easy to pitch, roomy, and good value - then the Instant Up would be a good choice. If you want to talk through the range or we haven’t answered your question in full, give us a call 1300 914 007 and one of our sales staff will be more than happy to help. Make sure you mention this inquiry to the person you speak to.

Are there any new features in the new range or is it just about aesthetics?1 answer

Have you any details about the new range to add apart from the photos? It appears to be a refresh in look only.

- SYDNEY, NSW(1 year ago)

Hi Michael, the Instant Up is still the exact same much-loved model as it has always been, but now with a refreshed colour scheme.
