Coleman Mosedale 5 Family Tent Review

Hi and welcome to my review of the new Coleman Mosedale 5

Coleman Mosedale 5 Tent

Coleman Mosedale 5, is a 5 man tent which is very versatile.  The tent comes with a large living area with 2 doors and 2 bedrooms that are made with a lights out fabric and also has a fully sewn in ground sheet.

The bedroom divider can be removed to create one large room which is great if it a couple using the tent and exactly what I would do. The tent also has an optional extra of a front extension that can add valuable space if using as a family.

The lights out bedroom fabric is a great addition to this tent.  If, like me, you struggle to sleep once the sun comes up or if trying to get an early night before the next day’s activities.  This fabric also helps keep the rooms cooler in the summer months which gives a better night’s sleep when it warm or if you got a little one that still likes an afternoon nap.

This tent has good ventilation at lower and upper levels to help air circulate and plenty of additional storage pockets. And with a hydrostatic head of 4500 and fully taped seams you’re sure to stay dry in even the most wet weather.


The Specs


Structure Tent has 3 fibreglass poles.
Guy Lines Tent comes with pre-attached guy lines which helps to steady the tent in bad weather conditions.
Fabrics The tent is made of a polyester PU sprayed fabric which is also treated with a UV guard to spf 50 for the flysheet. A breathable polyester for the inner bedroom. Tent has a fully sewn in groundsheet. All with taped seems.
Cable Entry  Yes there is a cable entry point on this tent which is zipped.
Windows There are 5 generous sized windows in the living area to allow plenty of light into the tent. 4 triangular windows to the front and one on the side.  All windows have privacy curtains so you can close them when needed and they can all be rolled back and toggled in place when not in use.
Doors 2 large doors. 1 to the front of the tent and 1 to the side. The side door also has a mesh panel that you can zip closed, leaving the door open but keeping the bugs out. This makes the tent more versatile when it comes to the way you wish to layout your living area.
Ventilation Ventilation panels to the rear of the tent that can be zipped open to help prevent build-up of condensation. There is also a ventilation panel to the side of the tent at a lower level to help air circulate.
Bedrooms 2 blackout bedroom pods that keep the rooms cooler in summer and keep the light out to give a better nights sleep. Bedrooms are 3 + 2 but the divider can be removed to give 1 large room.
Living Area 1 large living area that is light and airy with room to store your camping equipment or even a table and chairs set.  There is plenty of storage pockets in the living area to help store small items.
Optional Extras For this tent you can also purchase a made to size footprint and a carpet for some added comfort.  There is also a front extension available to give you even more living space if required or if away for longer periods of time. Please note these are optional extras and do not come with the tent.

For a couple or a small family I really like this tent.  I love the lights out fabric used in the bedrooms and know that this will be a huge benefit to many people.  This a great versatile tent that will suit many. So if you are a couple, small family or looking for a great tent for festivals this would suit.

  1. Would you choose this over the Vango Hudson 500?

    How do the blackout inners compare? Is the Vango blackout inner as good as the Coleman one?

    • Hi Mary,
      I love the fact the Vango Hudson has the canopy for when the weather is not so good. But, if it is about the darkened rooms the Coleman is far better and the reason for this is that the Coleman has blackout bedrooms (98% I’d say) where the Vango is only darkened. I also like the fact the Coleman Mosedale has storage pockets between the bedroom doors and find this to be a great addition.

      I hope this helps you.
