Sometimes your average sized family tent just won't cut it.
Whether it's extra kids, a dog, or just the desire to have that extra room for gear storage and maybe even the luxury of some indoor living area if the weather turns bad.
10 Person tents offer a nice balance of still being manageable and perfectly OK for campgrounds but provide that extra indoor space that is often lacking.
Below we review what we consider to currently be the best 10 man tents on the market in 2018- we hope it helps you find the perfect tent to make the most of your family camping experience.

Blackwolf Turbo Lite Cabin 450:
It's hard not to love the Turbo Lite Cabin. A premium tent that punches above the rest in terms of ease of set-up and weatherproofing. this is a tent for the family that wants to make an investment in their camping enjoyment and safety.
Including the Blackwolf lifetime warranty, and full of awesome features, the Turbo Lite Cabin 450 is one of the best options available for family camping in Australia.
With the substantial 2018 upgrades to this range, the Turbo Lite Cabin 450 is our number one pick for 10 Person Tents.
Coleman Instant Up Gold 10P:
A premium tent without the premium price tag - this tent presents a very appealing balance between quality, ease of use, and affordability.
The instant up design is revolutionary, making set up and take down quick and easy, even with a tent the size of the Instant Up Gold 10P.
This, combined with a range of impressive features, make the Instant Up Gold one of our top choices for a family tent in Australia.
Outdoor Connection Brampton:
It’s hard to find fault with the Outdoor Connection Brampton.
This is a spacious family tent with impressive weatherproofing and an affordable price tag.
We’re big fans of the versatility provided by the multiple awnings and the near-vertical side walls that provide additional internal space.
The Brampton presents an awesome mid-range option for families looking for that balance of affordability and quality, making it one of our top picks in this group.
Coleman Instant Northstar Darkroom 10p:
A great looking tent with symmetrical structure, the Northstar Darkroom is packed with features we love:
- Instant up design allowing rapid pitching times,
- Dark-room technology blocking 95% of light,
- Generous internal space with 3 separate rooms and customisable set-up
Drawbacks include potential complications with the Instant Up design and the relatively high price for a Coleman tent (however still more affordable than our top choices - the Oztent RV5 and Blackwolf Turbo).
Oztrail Fast Frame Tourer 450 Cabin:
The Fast Frame Tourer offers a very similar design and look to our number one pick, the Blackwolf Turbo Lite Cabin, at around half the price.
Set-up is super quick thanks to the hubbed pole design, and the internal space is roomy and feature packed. While the quality of the frame and materials might not be up to the standard of the Blackwolf Turbo Lite Cabin, this is still an awesome option for low to medium use.
