If you have looked at the Robens Trapper, liked the style but would like a little space between yourselves and the little ones this Trapper Twin could be the ideal solution and tent for you.

Stylish and spacious this tent has a lot to offer. With 2 bedrooms and a large living area, this tent is great for those with kids.

The Tent

Well, what can I say about the Robens Trapper Tent? This is a bit of a hybrid of a tent with a tipi style and feels in the bedroom areas and a tunnel design at the front living and canopy areas. The front tunnel design lends itself well for that extra living and standing space inside.  The tent is a single skin tent with a fully sewn-in groundsheet and reinforced areas where the poles meet the fabric give this tent a bug-free and snug feel.

The living area in the Trapper Twin is much more spacious, (almost double the space) than in the Robens Trapper, also a 4 man tent! This giving it a greater appeal, in my mind, if going away for any length of time.

Although there are no windows you can open the top parts of the front doors so it is the bug mesh only and you can see out through this material. The tent is well ventilated and also breathes well as it is a polycotton tent so there will be a big reduction in overnight condensation if there even is any.

Specs

Structure: This tent has 2 A-frames (over bedroom entrances) that are linked with a horizontal pole at ceiling height, helping to provide a solid structure. An arched poled canopy at the front of the tent. The steel-framed areas, polycotton material and shape of the tent provide a rigid structure once pitched.

Guy Lines: All guy lines are pre-attached and most are low-level guy lines that help to keep the fabric taught and hold out the eaves to make any rain or water run away from the tent. Front Guylines are attached to reinforced guying points and have their own retainers for when not in use to help keep them neat and tangle-free.

Fabric: HydroTex Polycotton tent with a 210T Polyester Groundsheet. As this is a polycotton tent there is no HH(hydrostatic head) rating. However, the weave of the fabric expands to provide you with a watertight fabric and one side of this fabric has also been treated. The material is 185 grams per square meter, cotton/polyester mix that allow the tent to self-regulate its temperatures depending on the season and ensures a condensation-free camp.

Cable Entry: No

Windows: There are no windows in this tent but the doors to the front of the tent do have zip away top panels to reveal sewn-in mesh bug windows/panels. Due to the canopy on this tent, these can be used as windows in good weather.

Doors: 1 entrance door to the front of the tent, Zip away panels to the top to reveal mesh bug panels. The doors can be toggled open when needed.

Ventilation:  Low and high-level ventilation at the rear of the bedrooms/side of the tent. Ventilation panels in the bedroom doors and at the top of the main entrance door.

Bedrooms: The Trapper Twin has 2 bedrooms, one at each side of the tent. This is ideal if camping as couples or with older children as it allows some privacy

Living Area: The living area in this tent is more than adequate coming in at approx 3.5 x 2.2 metres. This will allow space for a table and chairs and plenty of storage.

Optional Extras: There are no optional extras specified with this tent.

Conclusion

We think this a great little tent. I would have to choose this over the Trapper tent due to the better living area and separate bedrooms. Robens tent always appears luxurious due to their polycotton materials but this seems really snug and cosy.  All that is missing is a little wood burner/stove.

  1. Hello

    I read the review fro Robens Trapper Twin and I was not able to establish if this tent is a double wall or single wall tent. Based on the picture the inner tent seems to have its own wall but I see nothing about this in the text.ű

    Can you help?

    regards

    • Hi, thanks for getting in touch,

      This is a single skin tent, even in the bedroom areas. The tent comes as one with A-frames at the bedroom entrances where the material is doubled to help give strength for A-frame and when sipping the door closed. I will go back over the post and make this clear for anyone visiting in the future.
