Be the envy of campers everywhere with our Cabin Tent – Lite!

Made from lightweight yet tough 300D Oxford-Poly Canvas, this tent offers the best trade-off for size vs. weight that we currently offer.

Large enough to comfortably fit two full-sized double beds or up to 6 single mattresses, the cabin tent is 100% waterproof and features two huge doors opposite each other. Both doors come with separate secondary mosquito netting doors and there are two extra-large windows on each side to keep the air flowing.

The entire tent packs down into a bag that weighs less than 14kg and is no larger than a golf bag.

Just like all of our products, simplicity is key. We designed the Cabin Tent so it can be set up in minutes by a single person. The tent comes with 22mm aluminium poles that attach to a ridge pole, keeping the Cabin ultra-sturdy even in high wind conditions.

We will soon be adding accessories for the cabin tent – watch out for:

  • Wing Awning –  designed to offer a spacious shaded area that transforms your Cabin Tent into a welcoming indoor/outdoor environment.
  • Inner Tent – divides your tent into two halves for privacy from kids or dogs, creating a cozy bedroom)
  • Footprint tarp – extra protection from gnarly camping environments
  • Storm Fly – Extra protection in stormy weather, reduces condensation and maintains a cooler interior (Important to note the Storm Fly isn’t essential for waterproofing the tent).

A note on materials:

When choosing a tent, there are various factors to weigh. While size and weight are important, the choice of materials is equally essential. Understanding the differences between cotton-based canvas and synthetic materials is key. The trade-offs encompass weight, strength, maintenance (i.e. propensity for mould, sun damage etc), and breathability (condensation).

Great tent, highly recommend

We love this tent - super quick and easy to put up, looks great and has a great amount of space inside. The large doors on both ends are great to open up on a warm day to let the breeze through. The tent and accessory materials are high quality and it is easy to pack up. Highly recommend.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a positive review of our Homecamp Cabin Tent - Lite! Happy camping!

Rediscover camping

Just got back from a lovely trip over to Bruny Island (Tasmania). We've decided to try camping again. Neither my wife and I thought we liked camping, having suffered through many school and Guides camping trips. But, after some research we found this cabin tent and thought it might provide the experience we were hoping for. In short, it didn't disappoint. The tent is super easy to put up. We had it set up within about 15 minutes and neither of us had put up a tent in decades. It is spacious, light, and has great airflow. Just a really lovely place to spend time.

After two wonderful days of bright sunshine and warmish (for Tassie) weather, we got the rain that we so dearly needed down here. Unfortunately, it meant that we woke up to our tent sitting in a puddle of about half an inch of water. To the tent's credit, the only place where some water might have come in was a couple of stitched seams, but we hadn't seasoned the tent so this was probably expected (they had been basically submerged for a few hours by that point). Apart from this, the tent was dry and comfortable.

We are in love with our new tent and are already planning lots more trips around the state. Homecamp has made campers of us. Thank you.

Hi James, Thank you for such a thoughtful review of the Cabin Tent - we are stoked that you are happy with the tent and have a renewed passion for camping! Thanks again, HC

Wide open doors and space inside. Please strengthen the poles

Really beautiful tent.

Spacious, great quality materials, nifty rope adjusters. We've had many compliments. It's such a great size, looks great and is great quality.

Love your Work!

5 stars - the airiness, the height, and the space inside, plus the vintage look (I had old guys in the campground come and tell me their parents used to own a tent that looked like mine).

Antony Winkel (Melbourne, AU)

Roomy, great materials, thoroughly waterproof even in stormy weather, and packs into a nicely compact and light-for-size kit that makes transport and setup a breeze. We've had a range of tents and swags over the years, and this is easily the best camping kit we've used for family camping (2 adults and 2 pre-teen kids). Gear is legendary!

PEZ (Melbourne, AU)

We bought the Cabin Tent on preorder which was delayed for various reasons. We had some doubts but thankfully the tent arrived before Christmas.
The first thing to mention is that it's a darker green than the photos make out but this is a good thing - the tent looks awesome! we had loads of comments from other campers. Secondly, its a very simple design that's easy to put up and you get loads of space. Its made from a synthetic material and therefore wasn't any issues with the rain. The tent is not exactly lightweight but heavy either and it packs down small. Lots of nice details with the pockets etc. Would recommend.

Hey Pes, thank you for taking the time to review the tent - I think you might be referring to the older photos which were not colour-corrected. The updated photos are more accurate. Keep an eye out for accessories coming soon!
