The Taurus 6-Person Family Camping Dome Tent is a 16'x12'x6'is a snug, 3-room, waterproof tent. It is the perfect camping companion for families or small groups who need a reliable tent for a weekend get-away in the summer.


The Taurus 6 is in the same size-range as the Vega, Eros, Gobi, Indiana, Mars, Atlas, and Axis. All these tents are designed to accommodate between 4-6 people. The Taurus 6 is at the upper end of the scale and is rated to fit in a maximum of 6 people.

Although it is designed to accommodate 6 people, the Taurus 6 will be more comfortable for smaller families of 5. It has 3 sleeping pods where a single person can lay down with room to turn. One of these sleeping pods can also be used as a storage area instead, freeing up the main hub which can be used as a sleeping area by nightfall.

The Taurus 6 is one of CEC classics, having an old design and a Standard construction. Tents with Standard construction uses quality assembly pieces however, the poles are not as lightweight as the ones used in Premium construction tents.

Nevertheless, the Taurus 6 is one of the lightest tents in the 4-6 people range, weighing in at 14.5 kgs. If you are looking for something even lighter, the Axis 4 is only 14 kgs, and the Atlas is 9.6 kgs, however both tents can accommodate fewer people.

In terms of headroom, the Taurus 6 is at the lower end of the scale. It has an inner standing height of only 190 cm – good enough if your group does not have an exceptionally tall member. If you have a special height requirement, you might find the Axis 4 (260 cm), or the Vega 6 (250 cm) more suitable.

The Taurus 6 has one of the smallest packed sizes in this range: only 72 x 29 x 22cm. If packed size is not much of a concern, you can check out other tents like the Vega, Eros, and Gobi.


You have nothing to worry about when it starts pouring. The Taurus 6's rain fly is made with dense yet lightweight 210T polyester taffeta and is completely waterproof, thanks to the 3000mm polyurethane coating. And with 6-7 stitches per inch and tape on the seams, you can be sure that no water seeps in!

The flooring in the living room area is a tub-style groundsheet and can be attached to the rain fly with hooks and toggles, effectively keeping the water – and the bugs – out! Lastly, the sleeping areas have polyethylene fully-sewn in to the groundsheets, giving you a worry-free slumber in the rain.


Say good-bye to days when staying in your tent means soaking up sweat and constantly wiping down the walls. The Taurus 6's inner tent is made with lightweight 190T polyester and the fabric doors are incorporated with mesh panels and mesh vents, allowing cool air to freely flow in and out of the tent thus eliminating condensation. Moreover, this feature also keeps those pesky bugs out.


Parts of the tent like the rain fly, the ground sheet, and sleeping areas are all removable which means cleaning up will be a cinch!


The Taurus 6 will stand strong in heavy downpours and unexpected wind conditions (Note: The Taurus 6 is not designed to withstand gale force winds and hurricanes). It is held up by Ubertech shock-corded poles which are 45% stronger than fiberglass. It also comes with large PP webbing straps that are positioned atop the tent down to the sides for maximum resistance and tension, ensuring the tent's curvature will hold. Lastly, massive ABS stakes – lighter than steel but stronger – will work perfectly well in keeping the tent firmly in the ground.


The tent sleeves are color-coded to match the poles so your days of second-guessing your work are over. What a time-saver, right? And pitching in low-light conditions won't be much of a problem now because the polyester guy ropes are woven with reflective 3M Scotch-lite thread.


The Taurus 6's assembly pieces are top quality and would serve you a long time. But in the unlikely case that it doesn't, you can get a hassle-free replacement with our 12-month warranty.
