Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great family tent A sold 4 stars. There are couple minor tweaks that would make this tent 5. I would recommend purchasing the Kingdom garage with any of the Kingdom tents. Very roomy tent. Easy to setup with 1 person. We had 2 adult cots and the kids bunk bed cots in this tent with a nice lane for foot traffic down the center. The ceiling had loop and it fit 2 Goal Zero mini-lites perfectly. Only minor complaints - The zipper pulls on the inside doors are difficult to locate. When you fold up the divider in the middle, it comes unrolled and does not stay in place. When you roll down the windows on the doors, they also come unrolled and don't stay in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Choice Problem free, easy up, down, and packing. Been on four trips with my six year old twins and our dog. Sleeps four on two queen air mattresses in pure comfort. Will be more explicit later, but just wanted to mention that if rain is getting through the doors, the rain fly is likely on backwards. The vestibule goes over the thinner, non-waterproof door on the non-screen room end of the tent. Put another way, the orange end of the fly goes with the orange end of the tent (on the older models) Buy yourself an extra dozen stakes to full guy out the tent - she only comes with six which doesn't get your fly squared away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hail and Straighline wind tested and approved! I took my Kingdom 6 out camping last summer several times in northern MN. I set the tent up alone in ten minutes with footprint. I love the feeling of space and light within the tent. The tent stood up well during nickel sized hail that did $1200 of damage to my car and straight line winds that took down several trees at the state park. The tent had no damage from the storm. Clearly, I was quite impressed because I had read reviews about how poorly the design held up in high winds. I had expected a mangled mess--which I did see at several other campsites. Kudos to The Kingdom 6 for keeping us dry during the storm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tent As a backpacker and bicycle camper I never thought I'd buy a car camping tent but--- I ended up living in a few campsites in the National Parks for a total of seven months of this year. I purchased this tent as a spot to store my gear and have space and standing room in the middle of rainstorms. I mostly sleep in a smaller 2-person tent but have spent a handful of nights in here. The tent's great. I appreciate the 2-room option and I can easily set it up by myself (I'm a 5'8" female) in about 20 minutes. It packs down relatively small and fits with all my other stuff in my car. It's much more waterproof during rainstorms that my older 2-person tent and a great spot for guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxury tent for two! We bought this tent at the end of 2014 or early in 2015. We had a REI CampDome 4, but wanted to be able to stand up and a bit more room. We use this tent with two Thermorest cots linked together as a queen bed with an REI airbed and a Northface double sleeping bag. The bed is set at right angles to the lenght of the tent, so there is both footroom and side room to spare. We added a couple of tiebacks to fully pull back the divider curtain. We also got a second vestibule for the front of the tent. We have used it about 4 times so far, only once in light rain. We are looking forward to a lot more camping in this tent. And it is not difficult for one person set up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a suitable tent for windy climes. First, let me say that I bought this from REI after reading all the reviews and would not have bought it anywhere else. Only willing to buy from REI because they stand behind their products. I've been a member since 1969 and am never disappointed by their service. That said it was a nice roomy tent and spent one nice night in it. Next day the wind on Cumbres Pass kicked up to maybe 40mph. I had it all staked down and 4 guy lines out to windward. Snapped one pole which then tore through the pole sleeve and the rain fly. Other two poles bent and were deformed. Returned to REI for refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent.... Love! I'm a single mother of a 13 yr. old boy and this tent was a breeze to set-up & breakdown; my lil guy and I were able to do so in ten minutes (first set-up was in our back yard). The first test was a trip upstate NY to a remote area where we encountered a pretty intense rain & wind storm; we woke-up dry and the Kingdom was solid just as when we set-up. I did purchase the footprint and garage - didn't use the garage this trip, will update once we put it to use. Highly recommend! Enjoy....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Roomy car camping tent I purchased this tent to use for car camping with my family of four. We first used the tent on Labor Day and really enjoyed the experience. The tent was relatively easy to setup, definitely helps to have to have two people. We had more than enough room with full and twin air mattresses and our gear. The rain flap is nice for providing extra covered storage.Tent was easy to take down and pack. The only issue with the tent, and thus four instead of five stars, was that when I set the tent up at home to dry, the internal string of one of the poles broke. I returned the tent to REI and they gave me a new tent without any issue!

Questions & Answers

Just got the Kingdom 6. It is NOT color coded. There is no orange anywhere and no easy way to tell front from back. Is there a way for me to know which end is the front and where the vestibule goes?

Asked by: Richard55
Not an answer, I have noticed the same after I purchased a Kingdom 6. Only thing I can figure is that the door on the side that has less screen material (nylon sides) does not apprear to be as waterproof as the other. I have read that only 1 of the 2 doors is waterproof, so my assumption is that the awning needs to be on the end of the tent that has the nylon walls and screen top. Just a guess though.

Are the new tent colors coordinated so that you match up the rain fly to the proper end?

Asked by: Holly1225
The newest version (May 2017) is NOT colorcoded. The rain fly vestibule goes on the non-screen room side. The screen side has the better water protection on the door so it doesn't need the vestibule

Is there a way to keep the room divider open to have one larger room? I only see pictures of the divider doors shut.

Asked by: The Effs
You can unzip the divider door all the way to the top of the tent and there are hooks to secure the two halves to the sides of the tent. Some fabric hangs down, but for the most part you have one open space inside the tent.

I was wondering about the two doors and weather resistance. The door without the vestibule has a pretty small "awning". Is that door waterproof? Has anyone had problems with rain on that side of the tent?

Asked by: Tgod
Past Self: You just bought the tent and love it! The door which you were wondering about does feature taped seams and additional covering around the zipper, which the other door does not have.

I am purchasing a tent and hammock and shipping to Canada. At checkout there is a $20.00 shipping fee. Are there additional duty charges/ taxes after I purchase the items online?

Asked by: Andy88
I'm from Canada and I recently purchased this tent and there was an additional 13% charged by the shipper.

I have read the low ratings for sturdiness in the wind. In the picture I see green nylon strap tabs around the outside of the rainfly. Are these points where you can attach guylines to anchor the tent? Wouldn't using guylines make the tent as sturdy as

Asked by: TACSarge
The Kingdom 6 Tent can catch wind due to the height, but you can attach guylines to the outside of the tent using the green guyline tabs. You are correct, when using every guyline attachment point possible the tent, it will be much more sturdy in the wind.

What is the difference (The real difference) between this version and the previous green/orange version. I like the color better but I'm always concerned when products change as they seem to never change for the better. Fabric changes? Pole construction? 

Asked by: Kirtie
The only true difference is that one side is more of a dedicated screen room. The other side has screen at the top and not fully down the sides. Provides more privacy. The older version of these tents ( which I have ) there is one wall on each side that is all screen and the other is fully covered with screen at the top. Either way this a fabulous tent. I've had mine for quite a long time and camp for an average of 12 days in the Florida Keys ( Bahia Honda State Park ) and camp numerous other places throughout the year. Been in some nasty weather in this thing and it has paid for itself ten times over. When my current tent needs to be replaced, I WILL BUY THIS TENT AGAIN.

Does this tent need to be folded to fit in it case or can it simple be stuffed? Is the case large enough to hold the footprint and garage which are sold separately?

Asked by: Grog
I was able to fit the footprint and the garage in the tent backpack with ease just yesterday. That being said I am pretty fussy about how I pack the tent. I fold it and the rain fly so that they can be tightly rolled up like I do with most all of my camping equipment. The trick was to unzip the portion of the backpack where you are putting the garage fully and place it on its side. Then when zipping apply downward pressure to the garage bag.
