Coleman Evanston 8 Screened Tent Overview

The Coleman Evanston 8 Screened Tent has a footprint of 15 feet by 12 feet (including a screened porch, 3 feet by 12 feet) and a center height of 72 inches. This modified dome tent features a large screened porch with a floor (3 x 12 feet), providing protection from insects without having to stay inside your tent. Four large windows provide excellent ventilation. The Evanston 8 is designed for easy set-up, with continuous pole sleeves, Coleman’s exclusive pin-and-ring design, and easy-to-use Insta-Clip attachments.

An Important Note on Sleeping Capacity:
The tent spec states that this is a 8-person tent, it just means for 8 persons to sleep inside and with NO room for storage of your camping/hiking gears & supplies. If you need additional space for storage purposes, consider buying a tent at least 2 sizes larger. Or, use the Montana 8 for 5 or 6 campers.
