My partner and I have only used it once so far but it was quite easy to put up but it does take more that 2 minutes, but very happy
Used it for the first time this past Melbourne Cup weekend. It was located on a fairly exposed site backing up to the sea. Passed the wind and rain test easily and was very easy to set up and take down . Very happy with my purchase
Just used it for recent school holidays. So impressed we are going to get a second one (so we can take friends camping when they come to visit us on our farm).
The 6p tent is so easy to put up even for 75 year old who loves camping the only thing that slowers you down is putting all the not so good tent pegs (I just got new ones) in but other wise it is magic will have many trip from Darwin down the track
Quick to set up and pack away. Can easily fit a queen bed and portable cot inside. Was delivered within 3 days!
A fault with the tent - set it up first time on our lawn ; took it down few days later; collapsed the inner and poles ;then slid tent inner over the flat grass 8-10m and 3 m of flat paving;this caused 3-4 holes in floor and walls !! I’ve had a number of tents for car camping and bushwalking and I know that a half decent tent will not be so easily damaged. .Patched the holes and will carry on but disappointed that it is so easily damaged .I wouldn’t buy it again given this .
A great and quick to set up tent with ample room. We used it as a second smaller tent for short trips and it's just perfect.
Easy tent to put up, especially in the rain. Withstood extremely heavy rain periods. Great for Venturer scouts.
Excellent! I have been on the road 19 days now and have had absolutely no problems getting it up and down on my own. A big wind and rain is a challenge but I have survived.
Excellent tent, easy to erect, good quality, ticks all the boxes. Great price and fast delivery too...
I have seen that this can come with a rear door, but it doesn't look that way in the photo. Is there a version of this tent with a rear door?
I've just had a look at the Instant Up 6P Gold Tent that we have on display, and this tent definitely comes with 2 doors. There's only one version of Instant Up Gold 6 so they all will have 2 doors, Milly.
Could you tell me if you think this 6 man tent would be suitable for 2 adults and 1 child. We would all be sleeping on a stretcher each. Also would there be sufficient room for storage of a few bags of clothes etc. Thanks.
I've just double check with our display stock and you'll be able to fit 3x stretchers (working on 2m x 90cm each) plus luggage into the Coleman Instant Up Gold 6P tent. However, moving around within the tent might be difficult as you'll only be left with around 60cm at the end of each stretcher to move through the length of the tent.
And can you confirm it comes with 2 awnings as well. Many thanks
The Coleman Instant Up 6 definitely has two awnings, if you take a look at the second image linked above you can get an idea of what they look like when fully set up.
Unfortunately, the awnings on the Coleman Instant Up 6P aren't designed to be closed off (in the way that for example, a Black Wolf Turbo is) so there aren't any compatible side or front panels available to do this.
Hi, Is the side awning an extra fitting and therefore not part of the fly? Just asking as wanted to know if it could be left up in rain if it isn't part of the actual fly. It is pictured with three poles on the awning, giving a peak to the side awning, are these three poles included? I love Snowy's by the way, so much information - you guys really know your stuff.
Firstly, thanks so much for the compliment - we're glad to hear you're enjoying all the info!
The detachable side awning is not a part of the fly, it actually just zips onto it. The Instant Up 6 Gold comes with 5 awning poles, so you can definitely set up the detachable side awning with a peak, and then set the front awning up with the other two if you like.
We'd say that pretty much any awning is going to be vulnerable in wet or windy conditions, so you want to make sure that there is an angle for the water to run off and prevent pooling. I'd say mild rain would be fine with three poles forming a peak, but if it's really bucketing down - you might want to exercise caution.
Hi, I m wondering between the Coleman Gold Instant up 6P and the Oztrail Tourer 300 Fast Frame, which would you recommend? I am leaning towards the Coleman due to 185D Ripstop vs 150D on the Oztrail
Both tents are very easy to pitch, and are very similar in size as well.
The Fast Frame range also has the option of adding side walls and a front panel to the awning, so you will be able to use the awning area as an undercover space – so that’s another point of difference. The Fast Frame is a little newer or us, but it has proved to be a popular tent so you could go either way.
I would say that the Instant Up will offer a little more durability and weather protection due to the fabric and the higher waterhead rating of 3000mm compared to the Fast frame at 2000mm – so if you’re leaning towards the Instant Up, then it is definitely a solid choice.
Hey guys I bought this tent from you a few months back and so far it has been performing an absolute dream! I am just writing to see if you have a dimension for the exterior height of it? We are camping on the north west coast of Tassie at the moment but we are heading to Melbourne in a couple of weeks and will be pitching it under a car port for a short time when we get there so I would just like to ensure it will fit before we arrive. This might seem a bit lazy of me but I have no tape measure with me.haha Thanks in advance for any insight you can give me!
Hi Bryan, according to our tape measure it is 2 Meters at the peak. I hope that scrapes under the carport OK. Cheers!
Awesome thanks for the speedy reply Dave! Fantastic service as always!
Can I add extra guy ropes to this tent? How many additional ones would make sense and where would I attach them ideally?
The Instant Up 6 comes with enough to guy the whole tent including the awnings so you probably won't need to add extra as long as peg them correctly. As far as extra ones - there aren't extra places to put them, but you could always double up for extra stability.
Would you be able to confirm there's a rear door? In both youtube videos of it being set up, it shows the tent's fly as having a second opening similar to the front. I know Coleman's website doesn't say it but it's images are of the 4P tent on the 6P site (it's obvious as the side screens are squarer than what the 6P would be). Would someone be able to physically confirm if there's a rear door?
I've double checked our display model, and the Coleman Instant Up 6P Gold definitely has two doors - one on each end of the tent.
just looking at this tent for strength in winds and wondered the max kph it can withstand and also the pole dimensions eg 25mm etc Thanks
The pole dimensions are 20mm for this tent. I am unsure if any particular tests have been performed by Coleman regarding the wind strength this tent can resist against. Generally if winds are considered to be strong it is best not to erect a tent. It is more the wind gusts that cause most of the damage to tents, bending poles and tearing fabric.
It is always best to erect a tent with the fly to increase the rigidity of the tent and help prevent it from blowing over. Tent manufacturers do not cover wind damage as part of their warranties, so if in doubt it would be better not to put it up.
It is also best to match your tent pegs with your environment, so if you are thinking of camping in sandy soil or beach then use some beach pegs, or if you are in a caravan park campground perhaps steel or galvanised longer pegs would be the go. A tight tent is a safe tent.
Hi there, Can you please tell me if the Gold series has exactly the same following features that the new 2017 model has? • WeatherTec™ system welded floors and inverted seams keep water out • Fully seam sealed fly with large front awning Thank you
The features you've mentioned are from the Instant Up Silver 16/17 range which is slightly different from the Gold Instant Up range.
The Silver Instant Up tents were updated this year - and we currently have those models online which feature the Weathertec system welded floors, inverted seams, and seam sealed fly with a large front awning.
The Gold range was launched in late 2015 and is the latest available model from Coleman. The Gold series has the Weathertec system, heavy duty PVC floor, waterproof fly, and the front door can be pitched as a large awning – so it is similar.
The main differences between the two ranges are that the Gold is heavier duty, as it has a higher waterhead rating and a thicker PVC floor - so it will hold up a little better in rougher weather.
Great & thorough answer thank you - what fantastic customer service! Wish every company was like that, what a happier world it would be :)
Thanks so much for the positive feedback Kat, we pride ourselves on our ripper customer service - so we always love to hear that you’ve had a good experience with Snowys!
Hi guys, ur website and video has been really helpful thus far. So well done. A couple of questions: 1) is this gold series the latest model? Eg. 16/17. 2) does it come with peg puller/ hammer? 3) I haven't been camping for a long time, so this tent looks the most convenient with easy set up. What other basic or handy camping tools u recommend and can I get a good deal if I purchase all frm you? 4) when can I get the items delivered if I order today/ tmrw? Keen to get before Xmas. Many thanks!
The Instant Up models listed are definitely the latest 16/17 models from Coleman.
This tent does not come with a peg puller. However, this nifty little all-in-one mallet/peg puller from Zempire will be all you really need. You might want to carry a few extra pegs just to be on the safe side.
The Instant Up 6P is definitely going to be an excellent option if you're a little rusty, as it's not going to take you long at all to pitch due to the all-in-one frame.

If I was wanting to put a tarp under this tent what do you recommend? It was suggested to me that this is a good thing to do.
It is always a great idea to use a tarp with every tent, just as it adds an extra layer of protection for the underside of your tent, and if you get a bigger size - you can allow for some ground cover under your awning.
A basic, yet very popular and solidly made tarp is the Ultramesh Tarp from Oztrail. For the Instant Up 6P Id say that if you want the tarp to just cover the underside of your tent the 3.65 x 3.65 is probably the best size for that.
If you want to cover the ground under the awning of your tent as well, then the 3.05 x 4.88m size will be a good fit.
I am confused with internal size of this tent.diagram shows 270x270. in previous ? you answer 3.3 x 2.7 could you please advise whuch is correct. thank you peter
Hi Peter, we recently re-measured the internal dimensions on this tent and found we had some incorrect information, so the sleeping area is actually 310 x 250cm as you'll see listed in the specs. It looks like we forgot to edit the floor plan though so thanks for pointing that out, we'll get that fixed up :) Sorry for the confusion.
Hi All the videos show 2 people putting these easy to erect tents up. Can 1 person do it easily? Im female and travel solo. Thanks
Well... anythings possible Lorree, but it will certainly be easier with two people, especially if conditions are windy.
It will take a little longer and more consideration will need to be taken to ensure wind cannot pick the tent up as you walk from one side to another. You may find yourself doing a few laps as you place pegs ont he first lap, then extend all the legs on the next lap, then do another lap to make adjustments.
You would aslo want to throw the fly over the top before you extend the legs, it would be difficult for one person to get the fly over the top of the tent at full height.
I hope this helps.
why is it that I've looked at it on the Coleman website and it says it has a front door and a back door?
Hi Dee, I’ve just had a look at the Instant Up Gold Series 6P product page on the Coleman website and I can’t find the details that you found. I’ve just read through the supplier’s catalogue again to double check for you, and it also says there is just one door on the inner tent of the Instant Up Gold 6P. There are two doors on the Instant Up Gold 10P which is the bigger model so perhaps that is why there is a little bit of confusion.
G'day everyone, It turns out there are two doors on the Instant Up 6 Gold. I do apologise about the confusion, I hope we haven't inconvenienced anyone.
Hi Dee, the Coleman Instant Up 6P has just one door - the fourth image linked on the product page will give you a good idea of what the other side of the tent looks like if that helps.
During the wet season, not so much for the rain, but ventilation would it be to hot for sleeping in?
Hi Jan, this tent would be as good as any other instant-up tent in our range in regards to ventilation, with large windows and also floor level vents. Some of our range of traditional dome style tents may provide superior ventilation however, if this was the main feature you we're looking for! If you would like us to run through some options with you, please give us a buzz on 1300 914 007.
Hello, I recently bought a 6P Instant touring tent and was a bit rough with the poles while setting up for the first time in the bush which lead to twisting the poles and bits turning the wrong way. Does this gold model have a better set up for the poles - if I buy again I will practice more and take more care... Thanks
G'day Nathan, sorry to hear you have had some troubles with your tent! The frame and set up on the Gold model tents are identical to the Silver series Coleman tents. The benefits of the Gold model tents are in the materials and features - A higher waterproofing rating, heavier duty materials etc. Spare poles are available for most Coleman Instant tents, so its quite possible your tent could be repaired quite easily! If you would like to get your hands on some spare parts, please give us a buzz on 1300 914 007 and we should be able to help out!
Hi Can the front awning be enclosed at all, as with side walls? I have a gazebo at the moment, which I use at dog trials, other people usually sit with me, and if the weather is not so good, i.e rain or sun, could the front awning be used for shelter against this, without having to move into the interior of the tent?
G’day Sharon, I’ve double checked for you on our display model and the awning of the Instant Up Gold Tent does not have side walls, as it zips out from the fly. You will only have full rain protection when the fly is completely enclosed and you’re inside the tent. You may want to look into a solid wall for your gazebo, as that may give you the weather protection that you’re after.
Sorry, mi meant ask if you use the tent in a light shower without the fly on, would it be waterproof at all? Or does it need the fly all the time?
Hi, I'm currently looking at getting the Coleman Instant Up 6P Tent. Can you please advise the difference between the Gold series and the normal series?
We would like a meshed section in addition to main compartment. If not, what tent is recommended in similar size that gives the extra mesh compartment?
Also, I have been advised the frame system is identical to the non gold series. There is quite a few comments about it being weak and not withstand frequent use and moderate to heavy wind. Seeing there is no online manual available can you please give me your opinion on the above and also any comments in regards to wind in the Coleman manual. My other options I'm considering are the oztrail tourer canvas tents, the blackwolf turbo FS and the new oztrail swift series. Thanks
