Structural Integrity
Although our tents and screenhouses are
constructed to rigid specifications, periods
of wind or rain soaking the ground may
loosen the stakes and cause the uprights to
sink into the ground. This will weaken the
rigidity of the overall structure. Water pock-
ets may also form in the roof if the unit is
not assembled taut, the weight of which
may cause broken frames and torn fabric
Storage
Tents/screenhouses must never be rolled
up or packed while damp, as mildew will
form within a few days. Allow tent to dry
completely before rolling and storing.
REPLACEMENT PARTS Always mention the Model number in all correspondence regarding your tent and when ordering

How do I assembly the tent


Step 1 Remove the tent, poles, stakes and tent rope of the dome tent from the Northwest Territory sack. Locate a large flat area and remove any sticks and rocks from the ground. Step 2 Lay the tent fabric on the ground with the bathtub style floor face down. Pull the corners of the fabric tight and rotate the tent so the door is facing in the direction you want. Use a hammer to stake the corners in the ground. Step 3 Assemble the two long poles to their full length. The pole segments are connected by chords and will easily snap into place. Slide one pole through the diagonal sleeve on the top of the tent. Slide the other pole through the other diagonal sleeve to form an "X" with the poles. Step 4 Place the end of each pole in the corresponding grommet. The poles will bend and the shelter will be erected. Step 5 Assemble the two small poles. Slide one pole in the doorway sleeve and the other in the back window sleeve. The poles will bend slightly to create a rain peak on the door and window. Step 6 Pull the doormat tight and pound stakes through the loops on each corner. Pull the tent rope tight on the back of the tent and pound a stake through the rope loop to anchor the tent to the ground.

I have a magellan yukon (23-010) 20'x9' that has some broken poles. Where can I replace the poles


You can replace tent poles. I've never used them, but you can try http://tentpoletechnologies.com/. Otherwise I would suggest buying replacement poles from Academy (who makes the Magellan Outdoor line) or trying to find generic poles and an sporting goods store. Best of Luck!

Instruction for setup of American Camper tent 8x11


Finally figured it out through trial and error. This right here is the only correct explanation given anywhere on the net.

First, make sure you have all of your poles. There will be 4 straight green ones, 4 straight blue, 4 straight burgundy with plastic feet, 4 curved yellow, 2 small orange arches, a straight pink and a straight white.

Before you start putting the poles together, stake the tent down at every loop point around the base of the tent. There should be 10 of them. Make sure they're fairly tight and the floor of the tent is taught and flat but not so tight that you tear the tent at the seam. Stake 1 corner first. Then put the second stake through the second loop in order and using a firm pressure, pull away from the first stake, along the line of the tent base, make taught and push the second stake into the ground. Repeat until finished.

The first pole assembly uses in this order, going out from the yellow arch, which is in the center. From one side of that arch, add one green, then a curved yellow, then another green and a burgundy at the bottom. Do the same from the other side of the center arch piece.

This arch outlines the door and goes through the 3 loops on the front of the tent, around the door, so the poles hold the tent up. the loops at the bottom are not for the poles. Every loop around the bottom are where the stakes go to hold it down. For now point the feet towards the back of the tent wherever they will stand on their own. You can fine tune it and firm it up once you get the second arch in place.

All green ones should now be used up.

For the second arch, do the same thing but use the blue instead of the green. So from the one side of the yellow arch, 1 blue, 1 curved yellow, one blue and one burgundy. Same order from the other side of the arch.

Now all the poles should be used up except for the straight pink one and the straight white one. These two go together to make a straight pole that goes through the metal loops attached to the yellow arch pieces and locks the two arch assemblies apart at the top.

Now this takes some maneuvering and some word smithery to describe but what you want to do is make sure the feet of the front arch assembly, are pointed towards the back of the tent and stop at the side. The back arch feet will point towards the front of the tent. They both stop about 6 inches BEFORE the center tie down loop on the SIDES of the tent, on either side of the center loop. The front arch will actually lean forward, with the feet pointed behind it and wedged into the ground, right up against the tent at the bottom, move it around until you have a nice firm feel to it. Same with the back arch but this one will lean away from the back of the tent and the feet pointed towards the front. Once you get the back arch into place, it will really firm up and won't budge.

Another way to describe it would be that the two arch assemblies feet will point towards each other at the side of the tent, about 6 inches before they reach the center loop on either side.

Hope this helped. =)

I need assembly instruction for 8 person cabin dome tent with screen house


Clean the ground of any rocks, logs or big sticks. Open the stuff sack and pull out all of the contents. Pull the poles out of their pole bag and set them aside. Remove the tent stakes and set them next to the tent.

  • 2 Lay out the tent poles and assemble them. Push the rod blanks together to make the tent poles that will support the mesh tent body.
  • 3 Unroll the mesh tent over the cleared ground. Take care not to step on or walk on the mesh panels. Avoid sticks and snags, as the mesh rips easier than nylon tent fabric.
  • 4 Clip the Timbertop tent pole clips to the poles. There are no tent pole sleeves because Timbertop uses external pole clips for its mesh tents. Criss-cross the tent poles and push the tent pole tips into the metal holes at the end of the pole clip lines. The mesh tent will now be standing upright.
  • 5 Place one tent stake into the ground and through a pole strap stake hole. Pull the tent out as you insert the stake to keep the mesh panels tight. Stake down each pole strap around the perimeter of the tent. Unzip the doors to enter the tent. Zip up the doors quickly after entry to keep bugs and insects out of the tent.
