Here we have the 5 best options for tents with screen rooms. I’ve selected a variety of different tents such as cabin, dome, and even an SUV tent.
A screened porch can be a wonderful thing and it’s quite important in hot conditions. They don’t just provide you with a bug-free space to relax in, but they also guarantee more fresh air coming in to keep the inside of the tent cool.
When you go camping as a family and the kids have already gone to bed, you can relax in the screen room without disturbing them. This is just one scenario that proves how great and useful they can be.
Let’s jump right in then and see these fantastic options.
Tents with Screen Rooms – Best 5
#1 Coleman Dome Tent
This Coleman dome tent can fit six or eight people inside.
The only difference between the two tents is the interior size. The 6-person tent with screen room has dimensions of 10 x 9 ft, with a 5ft 8 inches center height and two queen-sized air beds can fit inside.
Two queen-sized air mattresses can also fit inside the 8-person tent with an interior of 15 x 12 ft, and a center height of 6 ft.
These tents with porch area are made out of polyester, with welded corners and inverted seams to stop water from getting in. The inverted seams offer even more weather resistance by hiding needle holes inside the tent.
The included full-coverage rainfly provides extra weather protection that protects the door and windows. Thanks to the extended awning, you can keep windows open to let in fresh air even when it’s raining.
It only takes around fifteen minutes to set up this tent.
Both tents have a screen room of 10 x 5 feet that is completely protected by bugs with mesh. Enjoying lounging or even sleeping in this room – it’s perfect for summer nights when you need that extra bit of ventilation.
There are integrated storage pockets on the inside of the tent’s walls so that you can store small items within easy reach and avoid clutter on the floor.
This family tent with porch has a very wind-strong frame that has been engineered to be stronger and more wind-responsive than ever before with its redesigned poles and guy-out triangles.
Even the zippers have protection as the cuffs have weather-resistant fabric, and the welding-inspired build of the tent’s floor makes it waterproof.
A carry bag is included for easy storage and this tent comes with a 1-year limited warranty.
The screen area is great and it has a floor but it’s doesn’t really have any weather resistance. The rainfly doesn’t cover it, so there’s no protection if it rains.
- Full-coverage rainfly
#2 Coleman Cabin Tent
These Coleman tents with screened porches can fit up to 4 or 6 people inside, depending on which one you choose. There’s also a more ‘waterproof’ version that has even more protection on the screen room from rain.
The vertical walls and high ceiling provide more space than most tents, and the screened porch adds 35% more space to the tent. It does have a floor and mosquito mesh, making it perfect to lounge and relax in this area or even use it as a place to sleep and stargaze.
This porch tent has a tub-like floor with welded corners and inverted seams to keep water out.
All of Coleman’s tents are tested against rain and wind before being put on the market. In their rain room over 35 gallons of water rain onto the tent for ten minutes, starting from a light drizzle to a heavy downpour. If more than two tablespoons of water manage to get inside then the tent has failed the test.
As for the wind test, the tent is placed on a platform while strong fans blow winds at 35mph. The platform rotates so that wind blows at the tent from all directions. Afterward, the tent is inspected for any rips, tears, or pole damage.
You can have this 11 x 8 ft tent pitched up in around ten minutes. It can even be done alone because it’s so easy – the continuous pole sleeves and color-coded 3-pole design help a lot. One queen-sized air bed can fit inside, and the center height of this tent is 6ft.
In order to set up this tent, you have to start by staking the tent down securely with eight stakes. Then, you have two shorter poles with a gray trim that need to be inserted before the longest pole that has a red trim. Don’t forget to clip the tent’s body to all of the poles, and then if you want to put the rainfly on it attaches with S hooks.
A carry bag is included to make storage easier, and these tents have a 1-year limited warranty.
There are two large panoramic windows on either side of the tent, protected with mesh, that let in plenty of natural light. The windows and ground vents also provide a lot of ventilation.
There’s also an E-port on the side so that everyone can have access to electrical power from inside the tent with ease.
Unfortunately, I did find some water leaking in when it had rained. It’s nothing a little seam sealer couldn’t fix though.
- Two large windows
- Easy set up
#3 Coleman Dome Tent
This camping tent with porch is perfect for a family of 4 people.
The dimensions of this dome tent are 9 x 7 ft with a 4ft and 11 inches center height. One queen-sized air bed can fit inside without any problems, and it takes around ten minutes to set up this tent. It’s really quick and effortless to take down this tent when it’s time to pack up and go home.
This tent is ideal if you have children because of the ‘dark room technology’ which blocks out 90% of sunlight. This way, you can put your children to sleep early, allowing you to relax in the screen room, and so that the sunrise doesn’t make everyone wake up too early.
That screen room is not just great for lounging, but also for stargazing and as an extra space to sleep when it’s too hot.
Plus, it reduces up to 11.4% of heat inside the tent making it perfect for summer.
The large D-style door and windows let in plenty of fresh air, and the E-port lets everyone connect to electrical power with ease.
The tent’s welded corners, inverted seams, and tough rainfly ensure protection from rain, while the strong frame is able to withstand against strong winds.
This tent is visually appealing, the dark room function works and is useful, and it’s very weather-resistant. For a small family, or a couple with pets, it is the best tent.
Like all Coleman tents, this one also comes with a 1-year limited warranty.
Honestly, I love everything about this tent except for the height. I’m not very tall, but I still prefer my tents to be taller than I am so that I can stand up straight and walk around without having to bend.
The screen room is not ideal in wet conditions though. This is because of the pitch, and no zip-up panels or rainfly coverage. Speaking of the pitch; there’s no stake point at the entrance, and it’s a very small flaw in design because unzipping the entrance can be annoying because of having to hold down the base.
- Dark room technology
- Easy set up
- Great quality
- Short height
#4 NTK Indy GT Camping Tent
The NTK Indy GT camping tent with porch is suitable for 4-5 people. The dimensions are 7.9 x 6.9 ft, with a center height of 4.7 ft – one queen sized airbed, as well as a single one, can fit inside. It weighs around 5.6 kg and comes with a carry bag of 23 x 7 x 7 inches. You can even personalize the bag thanks to the ID tag label, and the bag has an extended zipper to make it easier to put the tent inside.
The dome shape helps to deflect rain water away, and it has a strong frame using thick nano-flex patented technology fiberglass poles that are interconnected with double gold chrome plated ferrule hardware and strong elastic. It’s made with 100% virgin material to ensure a sturdy construction and provide additional strength and flexibility.
The tent is made with 100% waterproof 190T polyester laminated with polyurethane. The rainfly provides full coverage, even at the entrance, and is made out of 2500mm water column with PU coating. There’s even heat-seamed thermoplastic coating that offers UV protection.
It has a high tub design floor for extra protection from the elements, and an antifungal floor with thermal silver coating on the inside. The polyethylene floor is also seamless to prevent leaks and keep you dry and protected.
There are roof vents that provide more ventilation, and a very large D-style door, with a 2-way zipper, that can be rolled up to the side if you want to keep it open, which also has a double panel with mosquito net and fabric. More features include an oversized storage pocket with a bottle holder, and an ‘O’ hook to hang a lantern from at the center.
There is ultra-thin no-see-um polyester micro-mesh fabric on the door, windows, and roof to keep insects such as mosquitos out while providing ventilation.
There’s also mesh on the roof that also contributes a lot for plenty of fresh air coming in to keep you cool when it’s warm out.
A European design delivers a unique front vestibule that has an awning and side door with a detachable PE tarp floor. That way, if you’re using the vestibule as a porch rather than an awning, you’ve got one door for the porch and then another to enter the main tent. Also, being able to have either an enclosed porch or an awning makes it perfect for cold and hot conditions, and it’s effortless to transform it from one to the other.
It’s great that the porch’s floor is removable because that makes it super easy to keep clean and avoid dirt coming inside the tent.
It is quick and easy to set up this tent because of the continuous sleeve system and pin and ring system.
This tent was initially built for the Brazilian Amazon, so you can put your mind at ease when you’re in this tent come rain or shine.
- Great ventilation
- Detachable tarp floor
- Short height
#5 Napier Family SUV Tent
The Napier Family Tent has a vehicle sleeve that is universal and fits all CUVs, SUVs, and Minivans/Campervans, making this the optimal portable 4-5 person tent with screen room.
Several restraining straps attach the tent to a vehicle, and sealing it to the vehicle is done with an elastic band and a secondary flap to maximize the seal.
Thanks to the simple, shock-corded fiberglass and steel pole hub design set-up is a breeze; it can be done by one person, but two or three make it much easier, in around ten minutes. All you need to do is unzip the vehicle sleeve to transform it into a 9’ x 9’ ground tent.
The poles are attached to each other, so all you have to do is pull them apart, click them into place and they basically assemble themselves.
Here’s a tip – If you’re putting this tent together by yourself, it really helps if you take that opening of the vehicle sleeve and secure it to your vehicle once you’ve got two poles on. This really helps to keep the tent stable and stop it from flopping around while you get the rest of the tent set up.
There are so many different straps to the vehicle sleeve with elastic and/or buckles that really keep it secure and sealed to the back of your car. You just have to see it for yourself.
For example, there are the straps that attach to the inside of your fender, on the top you can even cinch it down to your roof rack if you have one. If you don’t have a roof rack, don’t worry! There’s an extra strap that can reach all the way around to the front of your car.
The tent’s walls and roof are made of durable polyester taffeta with 1200mm PU coating, and the floor is made with durable polyethylene.
There are three windows to this cabin tent with screened room and two doors which all have mosquito mesh screens. The center height is 7.25 inches and it weighs 36lbs.
Suitable for the mildly cold conditions of spring and fall, and great for summer because of the two ceiling and ground vents, making this an excellent 3-season tent.
The tent is waterproof enough that it can withstand rain.
There’s also access to the cargo area for storage, or to be used as an additional sleeping space. The zippered storm flaps on the windows, door, and vehicle sleeve offer privacy and more weather protection. The full rainfly with door coverage and waterproof coating work together for ultimate weather protection.
The 6′ x 6′ awning also provides shade.
Moreover, there’s an overhead gear loft, storage pockets along the bottom of the tent, and an integrated lantern holder.
When packed up, there are restraining straps to keep everything nicely compact. This makes it even easier to put the tent away inside the included expandable carrying bag that makes it even easier to store and take this tent along with you.
Included you get everything that you need to pitch the tent, such as an instruction manual, poles, guy ropes, and all other small parts needed.
I didn’t find anything to complain about this tent, but if you want to nitpick, I suppose it would’ve been nice if the screen room had a floor. It’s an easy fix with a blanket or footprint though.
- Attaches to your car
- Two doors
- Mosquito mesh
- Plenty of ventilation
- Screen room is floorless
