Here you have the list of the best 5 room tents for camping in 2018, all very large tents for family camping and for groups and with an impressive waterproof rating for a full weather protection.
My list of the best 5 room camping tents
Below is the list with the tents ordered by the floor area from smaller to larger:
All the tents in the list are tunnel type, so these are elongated structures with a rather similar configuration where you have a centrally positioned living area with multiple windows, and the sleeping zones are in the two sides. Yet another feature common for all of them is the impressive waterproof rating, so these are 3-season tents for all weather conditions.
1. Vango Odyssey Air 800 Tent
This tent comes with an air beam technology, which means that you have inflatable beams instead of classic poles. So the setup is simplified and easy, the air pump is included.
The area is organized into two sleeping sections on the sides and one living area in the middle, this all makes 5 separate units and this is why the tent is included here in the list. The declared capacity is 8 people, but you have quite some space here, no less than 200 ft² (18.59 m²). This makes 25 ft² (2.32 m²) per person.
There are 2 entry doors and one of them is with mesh. The windows are PVC, large and pleasant, with shutters from inside.
The waterproof rating for this tent is 4000 mm, and this makes it suitable for a 3-season use regardless of the weather conditions. It is described in detail in my separate review, so please follow the link for more.
This tent is with the declared capacity of 8 people, and it offers a large area of 226 ft² (21 m²). This implies 28 ft² (2.6 m²) per person in 5 of its rooms.
The tent is with two sleeping units on the side, each with 2 rooms for 2 people, plus the central living room. It features 4 great panoramic PVC windows and you have 2 + 1 doors that allow for 3 awning configurations.
There are many storage elements here and many vents for a good ventilation. The floor of the shell tent is removable, and you can remove the inner tents as well and use the shell tent for family events in the garden.
Those inner tents can be used together or separately so you have various options depending on the number of users. In view of all these features, this tent is surprisingly affordable, please read more in my review.
3. Vango Stanford 800 XL Tent
This tent offers 227 ft² (21.1 m²) of the area for 8 people in its 5 rooms, so it is practically the same size as the Eurohike Buckingham 8 Classic tent above. But the design is quite different here. You have two entry doors and two PVC windows. The poles are fiberglass and the floor is fully sewn in and sealed. The tent is with an impressive waterproof rating of 4000 mm and it is suitable for any weather situation in a 3-season use.
The sleeping area is what they call the lights out design, also known as the dark rest, which means that the daylight is reduced and you can sleep longer in the morning. The tent is tunnel type and it comes with Vango’s tensioned band system (TBSII) which stabilizes it laterally in adverse conditions. Please read more in my full review.
4. Eurohike Buckingham Elite 8
This Buckingham Elite 8 tent is the largest in the list so far, with 249 ft² (23.1 m²) of the floor area it offers 31 ft² (2.9 m²) per person. The tent’s shell is with 3000 mm waterproof rating, so you should be fully protected regardless of where you camp. The floor is also fully sewn in and sealed.
There are two entry doors, and one of them is with a short hood which you see in the picture, the other door allows for an awning configuration and the poles for this purpose are included with the tent. The windows are PVC, so they are fully sealed and also equipped with blinds from inside.
The tent is without mesh, similar to the other tunnel-type models here, but there are no less than 8 vents in the fly so ventilation should not be an issue. Multiple storage elements are available in all rooms, and an electric cable port is also available. Please follow the link to see more in my full review.
5. Vango Orava 600XL Tent
The area of this tent is huge, it offers 333 ft² (31 m²) and this all is organized in 5 rooms. So you have 3 sleeping rooms in two inner tents, plus a living room. This part is with a sewn-in and sealed floor. But you also have the front room, it has 10 PVC windows but this is without the floor, yet it is fully protected from the rain.
The tent’s official capacity is 6 people, but you have seen the area. It can easily accommodate 12 people. The huge front room is large enough for all your gear even if the tent is used by 12 people.
The waterproof rating is 4000 mm for the shell and far more for the floor, but the poles are fiberglass and this is not so great. There are 3 entry doors and 4 inner doors. This is one of the most expensive tents here. Please follow the link to read more.
6. Outwell Vermont XLP Premium 7 Person Tent
The Vermont XLP 7 person tent is a true giant with its 371 ft² (34.48 m²) total area in 5 rooms. This is a structure with around 20 PVC windows, steel poles, 3 entry doors, and 4 inner doors.
The waterproof rating is impressive, you have 6000 mm for the shell tent and 10000 mm for the floor. All the doors are double-layer design with mesh and with panels, so you have both ventilation and protection.
The tent comes with a built-in wardrobe and with around 20 storage pockets, with several cable entry points and with tinted windows with shutters. If this is not enough, you have a thermo-reflective coating and a dark rest design. But the tent is heavy, bulky, and expensive. Please follow the link to read more.
This list of the best 5 room tents for camping is currently a bit short, there are no many tents of this type available on the market. But it will be updated regularly and new tents will be added in time, so bookmark this page and come back again.
