The Riverview 10 is a whole lot more than a basic family tent - it’s got the Coleman quality, room for the whole family, and it can be chucked in the boot of your car.
The rooms are divided by a privacy screen which can be pinned aside when not in use. Every window has a zippered mesh panel for ventilation and a solid panel for security and weather protection. You can also roll the solid panels on the windows and doors up when they're not in use.
There is a pole all the way around both doors which keeps them rigid – so you can swing them open and shut with ease. The doors can also be zipped shut, or you can leave them unzipped but still secure thanks to the velcro tabs. Each door has a pull handle for easy use, which is great when there are kids constantly bustling in and out.
With enough space for three queen airbeds, the Coleman Riverview 10 is a great value family tent that has many fantastic features that will really add to your outdoor camping experience.
We just used this tent for the first time. We are a family of 6. This tent was easy to put up. It has plenty of ventilation and the two D-shaped doors are great for the kids to open and close easily. We had a decent rainfall while we were away and the tent was water tight. Plenty of room inside to walk around and store things. Overall a great tent.
This tent served us very well on our first camping trip. It is spacious and well constructed. Great doors and easy to assemble/put away.
My first family tent and I am really happy with it. Easy to set up and lots of space inside. The mesh on top is great to watch the stars
A pleasant surprise with the hinged door, saving heaps of time not having to zip and unzip all the time. Its excellant. Fantastic size with heaps of room . Very easy to pack up. Great purchase price.
G'day Dane. It's not overly difficult to put up, but will take around 20mins to half an hour for two people to achieve. I wouldn’t recommend this tent for a trip with mainly overnight stops, but if you’re staying in the one place for a few days then this one is a great option. However I wouldn’t recommend using this tent without the fly, as the fly gives the tent strength against wind and also rain.
Hi, Would be first time campers and tossing between this and the Lakeside 6 (as they are roughly the same size - at least on paper). How does this compare with the Lakeside? Why would one be better than the other apart from the sleeping capacity difference...? Materials, strength, etc.? Thanks.
G’day Maria, the main difference between the Lakeside and the Riverview (apart from the sleeping capacity) is that the Lakeside has a geodesic frame which means that the poles cross over – this enables the tent to perform really well adverse conditions as it will brace against the wind. There is also a fully enclosed vestibule at the front that can be used as a small room which has mesh and solid doors to separate it from the rest of the tent. The Riverview only has a curtain that divides the tent into two separate spaces so there is less privacy inside. Both tents are made with the same materials so they should perform equally in that regard. I would say though that the Lakeside would have the edge on the Riverview regarding performance and livability.
Hi there, Question for this - there's a small window beside the D-door, how does one seal this on rainy days? On the flip side of that question, with the full fly on the tent, there seems not to be much ventilation - can the sides be rolled up so that the upper slanted mesh be exposed for extra ventilation? Thanks.
Hi Maria, the window beside the D-door has a mesh and solid panel which can be zipped up from the inside of the tent. You can also zip up the fly shut across the window from the outside.The fly can also be unzipped and rolled up on the areas on the mesh covered windows at either end of the tent so that’s where you would get airflow when the fly is on.
Hi , I just got two coleman riverview tent for me and my friend from you. Just wondering, how to set-up this tent and do I need any additional accessories so as to avoid any unfavourable conditions ?
G’day Mahavir, the Riverview comes with everything you need for rainy or windy conditions– provided you set it up properly using the fly and guy ropes pegged you should be fine. Everything has its limitations though, so use your common sense when it comes to extreme weather. I’ve just had a look at the display model, and I found that the instructions are attached to the inside of Riverview’s bag which you can reference for detail. To summarise – lay out the tent flat in the right direction, connect the leg poles, attach the tent to the leg poles using clips, set up the window pole, put the fly on and then peg out the guylines. If you have any further questions about how to set the Riverview 10 up, feel free to give us a buzz on 1300 914 007 and we’ll talk you through it.
Hi, do the ends of the fly have zipped windows that can open to allow air to flow though the angled windows of the inner tent?
Hi Brett, I’ve just checked the display model, and the fly does indeed have zips that can be opened to allow air flow through the angled windows of the Riverview 10 from Coleman.
I'd like to know if the room divider is just a separate piece of fabric that is hanged or is it actually a part of the main tent construction? I am looking for a room divider that can be zipped all the way top to bottom for privacy. Thanks
G’day Jordan, the room divider on the Coleman Riverview 10 is more of a curtain that attaches at the sides of the tent. This leaves a gap at the top and bottom of the tent, so it may not be the right for you if you’re after a tent with a divider that can be zipped all the way shut.
I was just wondering what exactly comes with this tent. Is there a footprint with it? If not is there one available for purchase separately? Are all the poles and pegs included? Rainfly? Awning poles? I just want to make sure I have everything I need to camp in it.
G’day Ana, the Coleman Riverview comes with the pegs, awning poles and fly included. The Coleman Riverview 10 doesn’t come with a footprint, nor is one available for purchase. But if you’re after something to shield the underside of your tent, a tarp or mesh groundsheet would do the same thing as a footprint – it just won’t be the exact size of the tent.
No description of tent walls, just floor and fly specs listed
G’day Charmaine, I’ve just double checked for you and the inner tent of the Coleman Riverview 10 is made from the same material as the fly - which is 75D Polyester. Thanks for keeping us on our toes Charmaine, we’ll make sure that's clearer in the specs from now on.
I was wondering if the d shaped easy in/ easy out door on the inner tent can zip shut, we camp in the bush and that is an important feature for me.
G’day Robyn, the Coleman Riverview 10 does indeed have a zip to secure the tent shut so you’ll be able to keep out insects and other wildlife while you’re out in the bush. The hinged door in the description refers to the fact that the door is made from a stiff material so it can be swung shut (as well as zipped) which makes it easier to keep the tent secure.
Hi There, Does this tent come with taped seams, or are they treated of some sort?
G’day Brett, the Coleman Riverview 10 has inverted seams which will keep the interior of the tent dry as it will shield the stitching from the rain.
Thanks Emily! How does this method fair compared with taped seams?
I was a bit unclear with my answer there, Brett so I do apologise. The Coleman tents have inverted seams on the inner tent, and taped seams on the outer fly. Taped seams provide complete seam protection from water. I couldn’t double check the specific model as we don’t have one set up, but I examined the other Coleman models for you in store. The fly of this tent will be completely waterproof when used properly.
When the outer canopy is on does the window next to the entrance have a roll down seal/flap to close it off from the elements? Its hard to tell from the picture. Also would you recommend using this tent in the snow? (light Australian snow)
Hi. On the coleman site it has this tent as 3.6x2.7x1.6M Is that correct or is it the 5.2m length that you have it as? Thanks!!
I understand the concept behind the easy in/easy out D-shaped doors, but at the end of the day, do they zip closed for security against the elements?
We only camp 2-3 times a year so don't want to spend a small fortune on a tent, however we don't want to spend too little and have it leak or blow away. Can you please advise what are the main differences btw the Riverview 10 & Instant Up Gold 10P, which makes one nearly $200 more expensive? Any other recommendations of tents for a family of 5 (2 adults & 3 kids)? We have borrowed a friends Outdoor Connection 'Brampton' tent before & found it to be fantastic but they're more expensive.
Thanks Ben. I prefer the Instant Up Gold configuration too & the ease of assembling, however I just needed clarification for when my husband asks about the price difference. 😉
One of the issues I have had with my current tent is as the temperature drops there is no ability to seal off the inner tent from the outside. Air flows under the fly/canopy and straight into the windows making the tent only usable during the warmer months. Does this tent have the ability to lock out the wind from outside with internally seal-able windows?
