Coleman Instant Up Gold Dark Room Tent - How to pack away Watch video

Not all campers are early morning risers. Thanks to the genius fly on the Instant Up Gold 4PV Dark Room Tent from Coleman, you can sleep through the dazzling sunlight and get some serious shut-eye on your outdoor adventures.

This tent has a special coating on the rainfly which blocks out 95% of light, and reduces the heat in your tent by up to 5°. Set up is easy: simply lay the tent down, spread the fabric out, extend the poles until they lock into place, then throw the fly over, peg it out - and you’re ready to roll!

The front features a vestibule which helps add to your living space, and you can also pitch out the two-pole awning at the front of the tent for extra shade. You won’t lose your devices amongst the rest of your stash as the Instant Up Dark Room Tent features interior organisers, and a storage hammock.

The Instant Up Gold 4PV Dark Room Tent features a durable polyoxford floor PVC floor for toughness, and a 3000mm waterhead rated fly to keep off a drizzle. This tent also has ventilation covered thanks to the ultrafine mesh and the Coleman Circle Ventilation system.

Best of all, even on a bright summer night, you can get the kids to bed quick smart as the tent will be dark – giving the illusion of bedtime.  For a restful sleep on your next camping adventure, the Instant Up Gold 4PV Dark Room won’t let you down.

Excellent tent and great service

Cannot fault the tent or the service from Snowys. I was a little sceptical about the 'dark' and 'cool' claims for this tent. But it's all true. It was actually darker than my bedroom in the morning. And it's so easy to put up. It easily fitted our queen blowup mattress with room for bags etc.
I ordered the tent online. It came within 24 hours which I didn't think was even possible.
My fly did have a few small punctures in it. Most likely caused during transport. But Snowys replaced the fly without any fuss!

Quick and Easy

This tent has a lot of boxes to be ticked. Easy set up, water proof, somewhere to put the Esky and food container and the awning is great for not getting wet after any rain. There were a few issues but after a quick email to Snowys team, this was sorted promptly and with support. Look forward to my next purchase from Snowys. We look forward to our next camping trip as the time save in setting up camp means more of the things we like. Hope the team at Snowys have a safe and good Christmas. Cheers Mark

Not instant-up tent

We bought this tent to replace a similar-looking Coleman tent of 10 years old, where one had to insert two poles to erect the dome. We were attracted by the claim it was an "instant up" tent.

In reality, the setting up time turned out the same. It takes you 2 minutes to erect the dome, and then 15 minutes to put the top cover, and to hammer the pegs in. The "instant up" mechanism is much heavier and bulkier -- that's minus, but it is made of the opaque material which keeps sunlight out -- that's plus. And it is made of slightly cheaper materials than the tent we have. The materials are probably still adequate.

On the whole, it is a capable tent. It will give you years of enjoyment. Compared with the other tents, you will do well if you buy it at half of RRP.

Awnings1 answer

Does the Instant Up Gold 4PV Dark Room Tent have the option of a second (side) awning like the Instant Up Gold 4P Tent? Really struggling to weigh up the benefit of the dark room temperature control with the additional shade offered by the other model with the second awning.

G'day Grace, 

I've just confirmed with one of my team members who has set this tent up, and the Instant Up Gold 4PV Dark Room does not come with a detachable side awning like the Instant Up Gold 4P. 

If you would prefer the extra side awning to the heat and light reducing properties of the Dark Room Fly, then it sounds like the original Instant Up Gold 4P is your best bet!

External dimensions2 answers

The specs give the sleeping area but not the external dimensions. Would you have them? (Also for the 6 person version)

- Brissy(1 month ago)

G'day Siobhan,

The dimensions of the Coleman Instant Up Gold Dark Room 4P are 2.4L x 2.4W m plus an additional 1.5m for the vestibule.

The dimensions of the Coleman Instant Up Gold Dark Room 6P are 3.3L x 2.7W m plus an additional 1.5m for the vestibule.

- Snowys(1 month ago)

G'day Siobhan,

Happy to clarify - the 6P will be 3.3m with the addition of 1.5m for the awning.

Gazebo attachment1 answer

They mention it will attach to a Coleman gazebo, what models will it attach to?

- Warrnambool (2 months ago)

G'day Stuart,

The hook and loop strip system on the Coleman Instant Up Gold 4PV Dark Room Tent can attach to any of the Coleman Deluxe Gazebo range.

Groundsheet1 answer

What size groundsheet would suit this tent. Mark

- Tingalpa(3 months ago)

G'day Mark, 

We haven’t yet been able to independently measure the Coleman Instant Up 4PV tent, but according to info provided by Coleman – the external dimensions of this tent are 2.4 x 2.4 ( 1.5m vestibule). 

For a groundsheet, the Ultramesh Tarp is a solid choice. And as for size – it looks like the 2.44 x 4.88m should be the best size to cover the whole area which you can check out here.
