A few people rate the tent pegs as being inadequate1 answers

Would you recommend a specific peg for this tent

- Torrens, ACT(1 month ago)

G'day Ludwig, 

The pegs that come with the Instant Up 10P are fine, but they’re definitely not a heavy duty option.

We’d recommend some Poles Apart Galvanised Steel Pegs 350mm as they're a bit bigger than the ones this tent comes with, so they’ll be very sturdy and also rust resistant.

Would I be able to out up this tent on my own, or does it need 2 people? Is this tent available for delivery now? 1 answers

How does this tent differ from the other instant up coleman tent?

- Terrigal (1 month ago)

G'day Jenny,

You'll probably be able to put this tent up on your own but an extra set of hands will really make it a lot easier! 

There are a few differences between the Gold and Silver series Instant Up tents, mainly being that the Gold has a higher waterhead rating, an extended warranty period and is made from heavier duty materials. If you're likely to use the tent regularly, in all weather conditions, the the Gold would be the way to go :)

Detachable awning1 answers

Just wondering if the tent comes with an Additional detachable oversized 3-pole awning?

- Evatt(1 month ago)

Howdy Evatt,

The Instant Up Gold 10P Tent awning only removes from this tent with the fly. You can roll the attached awning up and tie it back however it is best to erect any tent with the fly on to ensure stability and strength in case of wind gusts or rain as the fly gives the tent most of its waterproof rating. This tent does not come with an additional awning as far as I know.

Room divider1 answers

Hello, Given that the room divider is not stitched to the floor, would it be possible to cut it off? I just want a single room tent. Thanks, Danielle

- Mill Park(1 month ago)

I guess you could cut them off Danielle, they are stitched to the inner of the tent. Alternatively, there are ties that enable you to tie them back to create a single room tent, which may be preferable in case you decide you want them at a later date.

Actual tent dimensions3 answers

Hello, Is this tent 350cm in length or 305cm? There seems to be some discrepancy between the specs and your Q & A section. Thanks, Danielle

- Mill Park(1 month ago)

I've just looked into this for you Danielle, and I'm as confused as you are. I don't have one on display to check for you, and Coleman have conflicting information between their website, packaging and catalogue. I'm going to get in touch with them and confirm dimensions for you, I'll post my findings back here for you.

- Snowys(1 month ago)

Hi again Danielle, I followed this up with Coleman this morning and all their product team are away until next week. I will have to pull one out of its packaging and check dimensions for you, but I'm not sure I'll get the time or space to do this before next week anyway. My gut feeling is that the 3.05m width is the correct measurement, but I will confirm this with you as soon as I have an answer. I'm terribly sorry that I couldn't give you a definitive answer here.

- Snowys(1 month ago)

I spoke too soon Danielle, I just found some floor space and pulled one of our demo tents out of its packaging. The specifications on our site are correct with the external width (pole to pole) being 3.05 metres, which gives you an internal width of about 2.95 metres. Sorry for the confusion here.

- Snowys(1 month ago)

Do I need a specific footprint or tarp to put underneath my tent? do you recommend any? and what measures should it be, Im thinking it should be smaller than the total external length of the tent. Thank you for such an efficient service, I order on Sunday night , got it by Tuesday morning, just great. cheers. 1 answers

what tarp to use underneath my instant up 10 (if I need to use one). what measurements. thanks.

- Cheltenham(2 months ago)

Hi Felipe,

There is no hard and fast rule here, but there are a few considerations. Firstly, if you use a waterproof tarp, it may be best to keep it smaller than the tent footprint to avoid water pooling underneath, in this instance you would want to make sure the tarp is still big enough to cover the main traffic areas.

However, if you use a mesh groudsheet the pooling is not an issue. You should also consider wether you want to cover the ground area under the awning. I'd suggest the Oztrail Ultramesh Tarp 3.05x4.88 (40773), this will stick out the ends a little but provide good coverage, or the Kookaburra Dura Green Heavy Duty Tarp (38060) which will cover the length nicely and a little bit of the awning.

You may find you need a combination of sizes to cover the area you want. Hope this helps.

This tent or the Northstar 5 answers

We have a family of 5. All 3 kids are under 5 years old. Not sure what is best and what they won't grow out of

- lakes entrance (3 months ago)

G'day Miche. Two great tent comparisons! Aside from the price there are a few specific points on each tent that you can take into consideration for how you like to camp out for your family of 5.

One of the great features of the Northstar DarkRoom 10P tent is that it is much darker inside the tent so you will find it easier to sleep in once the birds have woken at the break of dawn. This will mean of course a lantern at dusk may be needed so you don't trip over the kids on the way in and out of your tent. The Northstar is also a longer tent at 6 metres compared to 4.3 metres which will provide a larger foot print at your camp site however the Instant Up Gold 10P is slightly wider giving an extra 75cm of room in its depth. 

The Coleman Instant Up Gold 10P sports a wider front covered awning stretching from one end of the tent to the other which can offer a little more protection from the sun through the large fly screen doors, however weighs an additional 12kgs over the Northstar. The Instant Up Gold also boasts a slightly higher head room at 200 cm as opposed to the Northstar at 190 cm. 

Both tents have the same waterproof rating of 3000mm and a 2 year manufacturer warranty, and very similar Floor and Side Wall material qualities. Both of these tents offer great ventillation with large doors and windows to keep your tent cooler on those warmer days.

Both of these tents are idea for a growing family. The top notch quality and living space will be able to accommodate you for many years to come.


- Snowys(3 months ago)

Hi nick Thanks for getting back to me. What are the internal room dimensions of each room of the Northstar (to check if our mattresses fit across.) And if I understand right the gold 10p floor isn't stitched down so I can have one big room?

- Lakes entrance (3 months ago)

G’day Miche,

The dividers on the Northstar are fixed to the floor, to access the sleeping areas you go through a zippered door. If you’d like to see what this looks like, have a look at the Northstar product page here at images ten and eleven.

I've just had a look at the measurements, and it seems that the sleeping areas of each room of the Northstar measure approximately 180W x 230L cm.

The Instant Up 10P is the same as the Northstar, it has a zippered door that goes all the way around, so while you can unzip it to have one big room – you will have to step over the bottom of the door. 

- Snowys(3 months ago)

Hi Mitch, I was having the same dilemma and trying to decide between these two for exactly the same concerns. I've gone with the 10P Gold as the larger room size was more appealing for me when lying down (I'm 6'3") with having no side walls very near touching me and having plenty of space to get out and move around freely. Northstar = longer & narrower vs Gold = shorter & wider. The square metre space of both is about the same (I was surprised as I had assumed the Northstar to be considerably larger until I worked it out (12.39sqm vs 12.76sqm). And I'm thinking the overall dimensions are more amenable to campsite sizes. If only they did the Gold with the Darkroom fabric fly... I'm thinking about adapting mine though.

- Lilyfield(3 months ago)

Thanks Mark and snowys. I like everything about the Northstar... just wish it was a bit wider. We normally lay 3 king singles down and looks like the Northstar won't fit it. Love the darkroom fabric too. But the width of gold 10 would suit better.

Windows1 answers

The 'doors' look like there is no mesh part. Like once inside you are not able to unzip and just have mesh you can see out. Just cant tell from the picture. Please advise

- Coffs Harbour(3 months ago)

G'day Carrie,

I've just our display model, and all of the windows and doors on the Coleman Instant Up 10 definitely have both a mesh and solid option. 

When you're inside the tent, you can unzip the solid panel from the inside leaving just the mesh to see out of. You can also choose to have either just the mesh, or the solid option for the doors on this tent.

Max wind speed1 answers

What's the maximum wind speed that this tent can handle?

- Parramatta(4 months ago)

Hi Leo. Great question! There is no black and white answer for how a tent can withstand strong wind. Although weather reports will give us an idea of what wind strengths we can expect, gusts can really be the killer for a tent. Generally speaking the more spent on a tent and the size you purchase will help determine how much resistance it will bear from strong wind and gusts. There are many factors to consider when putting up a tent in windy conditions, including how well it is pegged to firm ground with tight guy ropes, the expected gusts, and if the fabric is tight to avoid parachuting of the walls, however the tent can still fail if it . Tents are considered a temporary erection so really shouldn't be put up if the winds are going to be strong. Unfortunately warranty will not cover tents damaged in windy conditions so it is best to check the expected wind conditions prior to putting your tent up.

cgear matting size for awning3 answers

What's the best size in cgear matting to be used under the awning area of this tent?

- Gold Coast, QLD(5 months ago)

G’day Jimmy, due to the specific size of this tent there isn’t a perfect C-Gear mat to fit the entire size of the Instant UP 10P (including the awning). The awning on the lengths of the tent should extend about a metre, so you’d need a mat that fits approx 4.5 x 4.3m. There are two options here: (A) you could purchase two and use them together so one 2.4 x 3.35 and a 2.4 x 1.8. Or (B) as the C-Gear mats are fairly pricey you could get one that will just fit the awning area properly 2.4 x 4.3 size (Snowys code: 32932).

- Snowys(5 months ago)

What about matting size just for the awning area?

- , (5 months ago)

Hi Jimmy, option B) that I gave you will fit the awning best (2.4 x 4.3 size, Snowys code: 32932).

Fly material2 answers

Hi, We are tossing up between the Coleman IU Gold 10P and the Oztrail 600 tourer. Can explain the 75/185D ripstop on the coleman. What parts are 75D?

- Forster(5 months ago)

G’day Leese, great question! The fly is made from 185 denier polyester ripstop fabric because it has a higher density and is more resistant to tears so it can withstand adverse weather conditions. The inner tent is a lighter 75 denier which helps with keeping airflow inside the tent, and from condensation building up. If you were also considering the Tourer range from Oztrail the fabric on that tent is cotton canvas which makes it a little more heavy duty than polyester.

- Snowys(5 months ago)

Thanks. Just scaled out the dimentions and the Coleman seems the more practacle of the two.

I read its good to give tents a good soaking with hose prior to use, is this applicable to this tent and do you only have to do the outside and the fly or do you have to do the inside also?1 answers

- Ingham(6 months ago)

Hi Chris, you've clearly done some research and know your stuff. This technique is used for tents made from canvas to make the fabric swell to prevent water coming through. You don’t need to do this for the Coleman Instant Up 10P as it’s made from synthetic polyester. If you do purchase a canvas tent that needs to be seasoned, you would soak only the outside of the tent before use. We always recommend to use your tent with the fly and all the guy ropes pegged no matter which model to make sure you get full weather protection and structural integrity.

Coleman Instant Up vs Oztrail Fast Frame1 answers

Am looking for a fairly large two room tent suitable for 2 adults + 2 children which is easy to put up. I am tossing up between the Coleman Instant Up Gold 10P Tent vs Oztrail Fast Frame Tourer 420 Cabin Tent. We will probably only use it twice a year in the warmer months. Which one would you recommend in terms of quality? Thanks

- Perth(9 months ago)
G'day Jenita - You sure are comparing apples with apples. They're very similar tents, but I must say we sell more of these and get more feedback. Feedback is generally very positive too. The downside with the Instant Up Gold 10P is that we don't have it in stock for a few months. If you're after something soon, go the Oztrail. If you can wait, wait for one of these. Hope that helps. Cheers, Paul

Is there any internal storage pockets?1 answers

- MIAMI, QLD(9 months ago)
Hi Vanessa, yes there is. I can't do a physical check as this tent is out of stock at the moment, but both the 4 and 6 person versions of this tent have 2 storage pockets, so as a 2 room tent I would assume this has 2 pockets in each room.

Comparison between instant Up 10p and Northstar Instant Up 10p1 answers

Can anyone provide some advice re the differences between this model and the Northstar, trying to decide which to purchase!

- Sydney(11 months ago)
Apart from the Northstar 10 being larger, the main difference between these tents is in the frame. The Instant Up Gold 10P has a steel semi-freestanding Instant Up frame, whereas the Northstar 10 utilises four steel/fibreglass Instant Up hoops which will lay flat until completely pegged out. This is best demonstrated through the images on our website. The configuration of the two differ slightly with the Instant Up Gold 10P offering two rooms each with individual doors, whilst the Northstar has three rooms with a central door and living space, and also offers a large semi-enclosed awning. Both tents are similar in their construction and durability with the same fabrics and pole materials used throughout. I hope this helps, I'd recommend choosing based on the size and configuration that best suits your needs.

Hi waterproof and keeps cold out reasonably well for camping in winter eg Sydney Melbourne Brisbane etc1 answers

I'm 156 cams want a decent size tent but instant or turbo not overly heavy but not tiny. I have a 4 person need more room camp at dog ahows

- SYDNEY, NSW(11 months ago)
Hi Nikki, the Instant Up Gold series will keep you dry and with the right sleeping gear, nice and warm in winter, but the 10P version is by no means a small tent. I would recommend looking at the 4P or 6P, these are a good balance of size and manageability for one person whilst offering more living space than a regular 4 person dome.
- Snowys(11 months ago)

Would this tent be suitable for winter camping in the Snowy Moutain region? Some snow may be expected. Or could you suggest another 2 room, easy set up tent that would be suitable? Also, can you confirm if the wall dividers are attached to the floor 1 answers

- KILABEN BAY, NSW(11 months ago)
Hi Lewis, I would only recommend this for light snow, they are not designed for the heavy snow and winds that can be experienced in the high country. If you are sticking to protected campsites then you should be fine. The only other recommendations I would make are from either the Oztrail Fast Frame range, or a heavier duty option from the Black Wolf Turbo tents. Outside of this you can consider a dome such as the Outdoor Connection Bedarra, but these will take longer to set up. As for the room divider, I took one out of its packaging to settle this once and for all, and it turns out the divider is one large door with a zip running around the edge (llke a 'D' door) and it features both mesh and privacy panels. There is a strip of fabric (5-10cm) that stays at ground level to facilitate the zip, so once the door is opened, this strip stays in place and is not attached to the floor. I hope this makes sense.

Is it the same type of floor as the Montana 12cv1 answers

- TOWNSVILLE, QLD(12 months ago)
It is the same or very similar Troy. Rather than a thin PU coated material or tarp like polyethylene, the floors of the Coleman Gold Series is a PVC coated polyester. It has a much nicer feel and doesn't have that plastic 'crunchy' sound that polyethylene has.

comparison to Coleman Gold Instant 8p2 answers

Hi, can you please advise how durable this tent is in comparison to the Coleman Gold Instant Up 8? Does the extra size of this tent make it less sturdy in windy weather? also do you what the wind speed is that it can withstand when all pegged/ tied down? is it fully sealed from wet weather? Is the floor of this tent better?

- newcastle(1 year ago)
Hi Susan, both the Instant Up Gold 10P and the Instant Cabin Gold 8P are from the same series of tents and feature the same fabrics. They are both completely waterproof and durability is the same for both models. Wind is always going to more of a problem with larger tents than small low to the ground designs, but Coleman state the Gold Series of tents to be tested to wind speeds of 100 kph when pitched in full with all guy ropes and pegs in place. The main difference between the two models is in their configuration, and the choice comes predominantly down to which of these set-ups you prefer.
- Snowys(1 year ago)
Once again the quality of the two is quite comparable, however the floor of the Coleman Gold Series is much heavier than that of the Mojave. The other difference here is the pole configuration with the Mojave not offering a quick pitch option.

Do you know what the dimensions of each room are? 3 answers

We camp on stretchers and I am wondering if 2 will fit at each end?

- Bunbury(1 year ago)
Hi Belinda, the floor dimensions for the Instant Up Gold 10P are 4.5 m long and 3.5 m wide, this makes each room 2.25 x 3.5 m. A standard stretcher measures about 2.1 x 0.8 m or 2.1 x 1.6 m together, so you won't have any problems fitting two stretchers in each end of this tent.
- Snowys(1 year ago)

Easily. We had king single mattresses (195cm long). Plenty of space either direction in each room, although since the room divider is not attached to the floor it was easy to slide underneath it even when closed... Wouldn't be a problem for stretchers, though!

- PERTH, WA(1 year ago)

I need to make a correction to my answer here sorry, Coleman have a myriad of specs for this tent, width and weight heve big discrepancies between product labels, catalogue and website. Just to clarify the external tent dimensions are as per our website, 4.5m long and 3.05m wide. As for weight, we have independently checked this and the total weight is 30kg.

can room divider be removed or is it permanent7 answers

- BRISBANE CITY, QLD(1 year ago)
Hi Tim, I am not 100% certain on this and we don't have one on display that I can check right now. I think it is a fixed curtain with a 'T' zip so the curtain can be pulled back. I am following it up for you as we speak and I'll post my findings back here for you as soon as I have an answer.
- Snowys(1 year ago)
I stand corrected Tim, it turns out that the divider is removable. It features a split down the centre of the wall and clips around the edges so you can convert your two room tent to one large living space and back again easily.
- Snowys(1 year ago)
Hi Tim, I need to come back here with my tail between my legs. I have just received feedback from a customer who owns one of these tents regarding the centre wall, and he claims that it is actually stitched in. Coleman's response was as per my original reply. I have not had a chance to unpack one of these to confirm, but I would tend to believe the customer who actually owns one of these tents. I apologise for any inconvenience or confusion caused here. Give us a call if you have any concerns - 1300 914 007.
- Snowys(1 year ago)

The divider is stitched along the walls and the ceiling, but not along the floor. The door for the divider is 'D'-shaped and, while the door for the divider can be tied back, the bottom of the divider hangs loose off the floor. My kids were constantly tripping over it when we had it open, and then crawling under it when the divider was closed... Tempted to just cut the silly thing out and have a big open area since you can get under the divider when it's closed... Kind of defeats the purpose of having a divider!

- PERTH, WA(1 year ago)

Hi Ben/Snowy's, can you confirm if the centre wall can be unzipped to allow acess between the rooms? I don't mind if it's stitched in but would like to open up both areas. Thanks.
