Summary: Favorable Reviews

A great large tent. It's spacious and perfect for a huge family. Kept me dry all night after using it at the camping event I attended.


Teal Thumbs Down Logo

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

It's big in size. It might be difficult if you put it up in a small space. You need to be careful because the poles might hurt other people around the area where you will be placing it

SPECS AND CONFIGURATIONS

The Big House 6 Deluxe Gold has two windows and two doors and a maximum center height of 6' 6 which is a tiny bit more than the average height of the 106 various 6 person tents we have looked at. With 75 square feet of room inside, it is significantly smaller than some other 6-person tents, and it would be quite cramped for you and, up to five other campers all through the 3-seasons this tent is recommended for. Smaller tents like this one can make a very good choice for people who like spending heaps of time outside the tent exploring.

One of the good things about cabin tents is, that the sides of the tent are near vertical creating a generous interior, this makes for a lot more headroom at the sides of the tent, making it feel much larger than other types of tents, most of the time, they tend to have large floor areas, so they are great for larger groups. In general cabin tents most often used by groups going on a camping trip in a car or a truck as they are quite heavy when compared to dome tents. That dose though make them well suited to colder nights.

Below you can see a list of the tent's strongest and weakest points.

PROS

  1. Freestanding. The Big House Deluxe Gold can support its own weight on any terrain. It does not even have to be staked down in most cases. But in case of strong winds, it is always best to secure it to the floor with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Vestibule. Having one vestibule. Offers you a place to store shoes and other items that can get dirty, muddy, this is a big plus.
  3. Has Gear Loft. It is good to see Big Agnes adding a gear loft in the interior to store some of your things.
  4. Has awnings. The awnings protect the walls of the tent.
  5. More than one door. With 2 doors, it is simpler to get in and out of the tent, in the middle of the night if needed.
  6. More than one window. With 2 windows it is simple to keep the tent cool on a hot summers night.
  7. The rainfly completely covers the tent body. The rainfly covers the entire body of the tent from the top to the bottom and has a waterproof rating of 1500mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy downpours.
  8. Other sizes are available. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.

CONS

  1. Sensitive to wind. Because of its size and shape, the Big House may not do best in strong winds if it is not firmly secured with the provided guy lines and stakes. Even though the tent is listed as freestanding in all but very calm conditions, one would need to stake and tie it down correctly.
  2. Not spacious. With a floor area of 75 square feet, the Big House 6 is smaller than quite a few of the 106 other 6 person tents we have looked at.
  3. Only one room. The Big House is designed for 6 people, many other tents of a similar size have more than one room allowing for a little more privacy.
  4. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one sold separately designed for the Big House 6 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Polyester, it is still better to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.

CONCLUSION

Value for money: In terms of value for your dollar, this tent is a little bit more pricey than the normal price of all the one hundred and seven, six-person tents we have looked at, this alone by itself is not a negative thing.

When we tally up the valuation of a single tent, we look at loads of conditions, finding things where the tent could outshine other very similar tents and where it is coming up short.
