A: I used it on the beach in Southern Cali for about a week. Did great even with the wind and the sand.
A: To anchor in sand, cut 2" pvc pipe in 2 foot lengths. Put the guy line around the middle of the pipe. Bury them 6 or 12 inches in the sand.
A: A good guideline in tent camping is to always stake your guylines securely. The little wire stakes that are provided are insufficient. However you can purchase larger stakes that are suitable for use on a beach.
A: Yes. You just have to anchor it. Parts included.
A: Coleman® would recommend not using this tent on a beach as there is no way to secure the guidelines. The Coleman® ROADTRIP® BEACH SHADE would be the best product to use at a beach.
A: I love Coleman tent design. The bottom is sealed up to keep moisture out so I imagine it would do well for sand too.
A: Yes, but you need to put it in and then inflate.
A: The Coleman® Flatwoods II 4 person has a spacious interior has room for 1 queen airbed.
A: yes, you can fit a queen
A: Yes, you can easily fit a queen air mattress.
A: Hi, I don't own this particular tent but I've been camping many times. You should always have a tarp to lay on the ground to prevent the ground from ruining the bottom of your tent. It also helps to keep water from soaking through the bottom.
A: It does have a durable bottom but better safe than sorry. It is always better to have a tarp.
A: Yes - a ground tarp is a good idea. It protects the tent bottom from sticks and rocks and other things that could puncture the bottom.
A: The Coleman Flatwoods II 4 Person Tent has a durable bottom but you can buy an extra tarp for better protection of your tent.
A: definitely not, the queen sized mattress fills the entire tent, not even really standing or walking room
A: The Coleman® Flatwoods II 4 Person Tent - Red @ Target could fit a Coleman® queen size bed inside. We do not believe the cot would also fit.
A: It would be darn snug, but I think it would be doable.
A: There are two pieces, the tent and the rain cover. I suggest putting the tent up in a practice run before going camping.
A: Mine was all in one box, tent and rain cover. I would open box to make sure everything is packed in the one box. Sounds like you got two tents

A: Our Coleman Flatwoods II is a 4 Person Tent, however, still depends on the size of the person.
A: Its more for a 2- 3 person adult size. This tent fits a queen size mattress. Just imagine yourself sleeping in a queen size bed with 4 people on it, not sure if you will be comfortable that way not unless if you have tiny bodies.
A: It's not a 4 bedroom house, it's a 4 person shelter. I would sleep 4 people nearly touching, or 3 with room to flail, plus gear.
A: Yes, our Coleman Flatwoods II 4 Person Tent - Red fits one queen size airbed. It's more of 2-3 person for adult size still depends on the size of a person.
