Here you have a list of the best tunnel tents for camping currently available on the market. Many of them are with an impressive waterproof rating and all are suitable for 3-season use.
If you follow the developments in the tents industry you will notice that most of the tunnel type tents on Amazon come from the European brands. They also share some common features which include PVC windows, the absence of mesh on the ceiling, multiple rooms, impressive waterproof rating, etc.
This is partly due to climate, so they are built as enclosed structures that keep the warmth and prevent too much draft. Not every tunnel type tent is suitable for a very warm environment, in fact the majority of the models here in the list are better suited for a cooler and wet area.
Tunnel tents are rarely freestanding, this is due to their design (but you will see some great exceptions below in the list). You always have many guylines to stake them to the ground. So bear this in mind when you plan your camping spots.
Note also that most of those presented here belong to what is called dark rest or lights out tents (some call them also blackout tents). This means that the sleeping area is darker, the daylight is reduced and you can sleep longer in the morning.
My list of the best tunnel camping tents
Below is the list of the tents ordered by the inner floor area from smaller to larger:
The list contains the following types:
- Air beam tents. These are with inflatable beams instead of poles.
- Tents with classic poles.
- Some of them have both classic poles and inflatable beams.
- 2-room tents.
- 3-room tents.
- 4-room tents.
- 5-room tents. Yes, you are reading correctly, there are many of them here with such an incredible structure.
- One of the tents is insulated, so again, yes you are reading correctly, this is a unique item among all tunnel tents on the market.
Note that this list is just a selection and some of them are just representatives of some series (for example in the case of the tents for 5, 6, and 8 people sometimes I present only one here). So just to know, there are many more tunnel-type tents presented here in the site, please check in the Category tunnel tents.
