the instructions are useless anyway. you put the red poles through the 2 side bedrooms. the black rods and the black poles with the bends in join together and go diagonally through the middle of the tent. the yellow rods join together with the black poles with the yellow tape round the ends and u fit these from the inside of the front and back entrance then when the tent is up you just hook the bedrooms in. hope this was usefull

Go on youtube, you will find some excellent videos on how to....on a range of tents. I saw the coleman sahara tent on a video last year as I was considering buying one! Good luck!

Two poles. They pass up through the sleeves on the outside of the tent, across the top, through the sleeve on the diagonally opposed side, then each end is stuck into the pocket attached at each corner. They cross at the top. Then the small rain fly attaches with bungees over the top.

SOURCE: no instructions giving to erect
I bought one of these yeaterday. The instructions - for what they are worth are sewn inside the carry bag. So I decided to put it up today. Not as easy as i would have thought, but then this is my first tent of this size. ( saw a nice Outwell Montana 4 in Millets for 225.00 which would have been my tent of choice). But at half price in Argos I couldn't argue that one.
So to put it up.....
lay out the fly sheet in the approximate final position. put poles in as per instructions ..blue to back red to middle and blue to front.. across the tent. ( the pole guides are all colour coded.) Make sure poles are in pins at the base of fly sheet (bending gently to attach). these are attached by the black elastic straps.put in porch pole, put in front to back poles left and right.
Anchor back of tent temporarily with pegs. Lift from porch forward to lift tent. Temporarily peg base of poles, straighten out so that the straps inside tent are approximately perpendicular to each other. Move poles to tension flysheet and tighten anchor points on flysheet using straps buckles to pull flysheet down as far as possible ( to help prevent draughts)., anchor guy lines when happy with final position.
Put up inside ground sheet and attach to points on inside of flysheet. put up rooms starting with the rear yellow hook and work around to front red hook.
These instructions were not specifically provided but this was our first try and probably could be improved on. It requires 2 people for speed if nothing else.
