Question about Coleman 10' X 10' Sundome Tent 9160K101
We recently purchased a Avid Outdoors Laguna Cabin dome tent (280x420) but the instructions on how to erect are somewhat vague. Can anyone supply picture instructions or better written instructions on how to erect, this is not like a standard 2 room dome tent.
Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org
SOURCE: erect a tent
start with the two longest poles and feed them through (every pole is colour coded so you can't go wrong), that will give you the main shape. peg each corner, once done start with back door section and feed the shorter ones through the loops when done peg it down. then do the same with the other two sleeping sections. finally the front door section (the black/grey coded pole) the pole has a curve which positions in the middle,get that pegged down and put the guide ropes in and it tight. then you can fine tune the rest of the tent sections, once you have everything how you want it, then put guide ropes in. it takes 15/20mins with two people to get everything up, after that it takes 15/20mins for one person to fine tune. hope this helps, if this is your first time putting up the hartford xl it'll take you about 1hr 15mins cause it did me. but it gets quicker with practice.

Avid doesn't exist any more as it was bought out. The company that might have support information and your manual is called Alliance Sports Group:

Peg out 2 back pegs of inner tent. Peg out 2 front then side pegs. Place smaller pointed pole through hole at bell end of inner tent from inside, longer pole through hole at front.Fit protective bases to each pole. Top pointed poles with separators. Assemble roof pole, put through loop and over separators. Throw outer tent over from bell end (needs 2 people) then carefully lead towards front til holes in roof match - back hole first. Fit rain hoods front and back. Peg outer tent from bell end first then back corners, front corners then sides. Place porch poles through holes at front of porch, zip door sides down with one person holding poles upright and taut and peg out door. Peg sides all along making sure they do not touch inner tent. Fix guy ropes.

1. Usually you can go to the website of the manufacturer and get a sheet of instructions, or you can get them from a dealer.
2. Try it. You might find that it is obvious once you get it spread out. I bought one with no instructions once, and there was only one step that took a while to figure out.
3. Try a friend or neighbour who is an experienced camper. They might be able to figure it out pretty quickly.
