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.

SOURCE: square tent with 2 types gazebo poles, varenda, 2 side windows

the 2 longest of the poles go in an x over the center of the tent and the 2 shorter ones go arch to the sides. http://www.wenzelco.com/details.aspx?NavID=412
shows a picture very similar to your tent. If you go to image 2 it shows it with out the fly. now if you got 2 sets of 4 poles, 2 long and 2 short, and one set is all aluminum, then I would go with the aluminum set. It is less likely to collapse in high winds.

Need instructions on assembling 2-5 person house shaped tent


House shaped tent is not an adequate description to make erektion suggestions.

Broadly speaking tents are divided into categories of dome, tunnel, ridge, bell or frame.

The ridge tent is sort of house shaped and the classic frame tent also, though this is usually referred to as a bungalow or perhaps chalet tent. None of these types peaks in the centre of the top and neither does a house, usually.

A small marquee peaks in the centre of the top and is also vaguely house-shaped but it seems somehow unlikely you have a small marquee..



It is also important to know whether there is an inner and an outer tent or flysheet and a sewn-in groundsheet, single pole, ridge pole, frame, fibreglass rods or perhaps an A frame.



I can't advise much without knowing what sort of tent you have but I advise you to practice, practice, practice and colour code or number each pole assembly. Bad weather when pitching for the first time is too late to be trying to read instructions and wondering which pole section goes where.

I also advise taking extra pegs and guy ropes in case of accidents or really foul weather. Tents are provided with minimum equipment for moderate weather pitched on hard packed loam type ground.



For different types of ground; sandy soil or rocky different designs of pegs are available and should be used along with heavy stones or sandbags. Double pegging is also advisable in some circumstances.



Preparation and attention to detail is the key to a successful camping trip. No extra precautions often turns a simple camping trip into pure misery. I once camped at the top of a high cliff when bad weather was expected. I double-pegged and fitted extra guy ropes and slept right through a gale while my companion laid awake petrified. The tent never moved but in the morning we were the only campers left on that part of the site.

Where can I find an instruction manual at for the Northwest Front Porch Tent?


This video is as good as anything although I wouldn't pitch it on a hill! These are written instructions;

Start by stretching out the bottom of the tent into a square, and stake all of the perimeter tentloops to the ground, starting with the corners, with the stakes directed at a 30 to 45 degree angle under the tent, so the tent cannot easily pull them back out. Leave the yellow cords attached to the tentloops loose, so you can use the cords to help pull up the stakes when you take down the tent.

Now assemble the poles going through the loops across the front of the screen porch. Insert one end of a pole #1 into a pole #2 and thread them through the loops over the entrance to the screen porch. Put the long end of a curved pole #3 through the loops starting from one side, and attach to either side of the 1/#2 you made. Put the long end of another #3 through the loops starting from the other side and attach to the loose end of the #1/#2. You should tie the loose green cords on each corner of the sceen porch to the silver metal rings at the curved end of each #3.
Later, you will do the exact same assembly with a #3 on each side of a #1/#2 for the poles going across the back of the tent and the poles going through the pocket across the middle/top of the tent.

Now insert the small end of pole #4 into the curved end of a #3, then insert the small end of a #5 into the open end of the #4. There should be a rubber foot on the bottom of the #5 pole. Do the same thing for the other side of the porch. With help, you should be able to prop up the front of the sceen porch, pulling aganst the stakes holding the rear floor of the tent, and place the rubber feet of the #5 poles close to the center loops of the floor on each side.

Now prepare the #1/#2 poles for the rear, and attach a #3 to each side and tie the loose green cords to the silver rings on the short ends of the #3s. Prepare a #4/#5 pole the same as the front, and prop up the back of the tent, putting the feet near the side loops of the floor which are about 1/3 from the rear of the tent.

Make another #1/#2/#3, and push it through the pocket across the middle of the tent, and connect the last #3 from the other side. The side supports for the middle are pole #8 with the white clamp on the bottom, and pole #7 slid into pole #8 (The #7 was scraped off both of mine). Leave the #7 mostly inserted into the #8 until after the center is lifted up. The #6 goes on top of #7, and insert the #6 into the curved end of the #3 poles which are already in the center pocket, and tie the loose green cords to the silver rings at the short end on each of the #3s. Now lift up the center with someone helping on the other side, and put the feet of the #8 into or near the yellow loops at the center of each side. Loosen the white clamps and extend the #7 poles until the peak of the tent is at proper height.
Move the feet of the #5 poles closer to the tent, until all is tight, and you should be done!


Setting up Northwest Territory Front Porch Tent

How do you set it up


Check your manual, or look for instructions online, but the basic plan is...

1. Lay it out so the door faces where you want it.
2. Stake down the corners, yes- even if it is 'free-standing' you usually want to do this.
3. Figure out where the poles go. They usually go through cloth sleeves, or metal rings, or clips or something. They also go in arcs that may or may not cross at the top. (a manual REALLY helps with this!)
4. Slide a pole in place. if it goes through a sleeve, you usually slide it in first, then stick the ends of the poles on little metal studs at the corners. If it clips on, you usually build the pole, then run it from stud to stud, then clip the tent to the arch you made.
5. Repeat for all poles
6. Pull the rain fly in place, clip on at each pole end and as needed.
7. Pull out and stake other ties as available. This gives you more interior room, more stability and protection in weather, and improves ventilation.

I have a disney princess tent that goes over a twin bed and i lost the instructions to putting it together and i need help.


  • 1

    Remove the tent and poles from the packaging. Select an indoor area with a high ceiling or an outdoor area without overhead obstacles. The poles are not excessively long but they will be difficult to assemble without space.

  • 2

    Lay the Princess tent with the floor on the ground. Pull on each corner to tighten the floor. Assemble the two tent poles by inserting the male sections into the metal ferrules.

  • 3

    Slide one pole through each of the diagonal sleeves. Place the end of each pole in the fabric pockets on the corners. This will flex the poles and raise the tent body.

  • 4

    Place the fabric roof on top of the tent. Attach the hooks on each corner of the roof to the loops on the top of the pole sleeves. The roof fabric will stretch tight and cover the ventilation gap in the tent ceiling.

    How to put up a tent- ozark trails 16x12


    I have this tent and have successfully put it up a few times. It's a big tent but it's frustrating to put up sometimes. Plan on having several people to help you. I find that it greatly helps if there are a total of 3-4 of you.
    The poles are color coded. The center support are red rods. The two side supports are blue with the graphite looking rod that goes through the tent.
    Spread the tent out on the ground and try to square it up and make it even. Run the center pole through the top and connect to the curved pieces which then connect to red dot poles on the side. Hoist the whole thing up. Have two people hold those poles for a while.
    Get the bue poles into the black couplings and put the graphite looking rod through the tent. It will be a little tight. Hoist the blue poles into position. The bottom of the blue dot poles should be about two feet from the center. They extend outwards at about a 30 degree angle. Keep your center people holding the center poles and let the two blue dot pole section extend outwards. You'll start to see a tent shape. Your center holder people may need to keep and eye on the poles.
    Now, start trying to get some stakes in. Work the corners. Once those are in and things start getting tight, it should start to hold on its own. Work all the stakes in and make adjustments to all the poles as necessary.
    Extend the red dot poles up until the roof is at the proper height. I tend to do this last.
    The fly basic basically clips on into holes on the blue dot poles.
    It's kind of a pain to set up but its a big tent and works well once it is up. Good luck.
    I took a ton of pictures after I got it up the first time. As I took it down, I shot the pictures. Then, I reverse the order and printed them to a book and now sort of use that as my manual.
    Have fun.

    I have a greatland tent item #15710. This is a two room tent (not dome) with a screened porch. The poles have numbers and some numbers are blue and some red. I cannot identify whether the numbers go in...


    I am looking for a manual for Greatland Outdoors 2 room tent with screen porch item #15710, however, I guessed how the poles go together. I set up the tent by myself, but I recommend 2 people or more, especially if it is windy.

    Start by stretching out the bottom of the tent into a square, and stake all of the perimeter tentloops to the ground, starting with the corners, with the stakes directed at a 30 to 45 degree angle under the tent, so the tent cannot easily pull them back out. Leave the yellow cords attached to the tentloops loose, so you can use the cords to help pull up the stakes when you take down the tent.

    Now assemble the poles going through the loops across the front of the screen porch. Insert one end of a pole #1 into a pole #2 and thread them through the loops over the entrance to the screen porch. Put the long end of a curved pole #3 through the loops starting from one side, and attach to either side of the 1/#2 you made. Put the long end of another #3 through the loops starting from the other side and attach to the loose end of the #1/#2. You should tie the loose green cords on each corner of the sceen porch to the silver metal rings at the curved end of each #3.
    Later, you will do the exact same assembly with a #3 on each side of a #1/#2 for the poles going across the back of the tent and the poles going through the pocket across the middle/top of the tent.

    Now insert the small end of pole #4 into the curved end of a #3, then insert the small end of a #5 into the open end of the #4. There should be a rubber foot on the bottom of the #5 pole. Do the same thing for the other side of the porch. With help, you should be able to prop up the front of the sceen porch, pulling aganst the stakes holding the rear floor of the tent, and place the rubber feet of the #5 poles close to the center loops of the floor on each side.

    Now prepare the #1/#2 poles for the rear, and attach a #3 to each side and tie the loose green cords to the silver rings on the short ends of the #3s. Prepare a #4/#5 pole the same as the front, and prop up the back of the tent, putting the feet near the side loops of the floor which are about 1/3 from the rear of the tent.

    Make another #1/#2/#3, and push it through the pocket across the middle of the tent, and connect the last #3 from the other side. The side supports for the middle are pole #8 with the white clamp on the bottom, and pole #7 slid into pole #8 (The #7 was scraped off both of mine). Leave the #7 mostly inserted into the #8 until after the center is lifted up. The #6 goes on top of #7, and insert the #6 into the curved end of the #3 poles which are already in the center pocket, and tie the loose green cords to the silver rings at the short end on each of the #3s. Now lift up the center with someone helping on the other side, and put the feet of the #8 into or near the yellow loops at the center of each side. Loosen the white clamps and extend the #7 poles until the peak of the tent is at proper height.
    Move the feet of the #5 poles closer to the tent, until all is tight, and you should be done!
