SOURCE: I have a greatland tent item #15710. This is a two

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!

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.

I need instructions for 89034 17x15 moab


Instructions
  1. Select a flat camping area and clean the area of sticks and rocks. Remove the tent from the bag and spread out the tent body with the floor on the ground. Assemble the tent poles by connecting the attached sections at the ferrules. Set the poles on the ground and separate by size.
  2. Locate the three long sleeves on the tent body. One sleeve is horizontal over the screen room and the other two cross the main tent body to create an "X". Locate the three long poles and slide one through each sleeve. Place the corresponding pins in the end of the poles. The poles will flex and erect the tent body. This step is best attempted with two or more people.
  3. Attach the clips to the exposed sections of the tent poles. The clips are attached to the ten fabric and will add rigidity to the tent. Locate the next largest pole and insert it through the sleeve on the screen house. Locate the metal grommets where the screen room meets the main tent and place each end of the pole in a grommet.
  4. Locate the two smallest poles. These are for the side rooms. Insert one pole through each of the side room sleeves. Attach the ferrule of one steel pole to each end of the side room pole. Insert the corresponding pins in the end of the upright poles to support the side rooms.
  5. Pull on each end of the tent to ensure the floor is tight. Use a rock to pound stakes through the ground loops on the tent. Place the floor mat in front of the screen room door and use stakes to secure the mat to the ground.
  6. Place the fly on the tent and make adjustments until the shape of the fly matches the tent. The fly will only cover the top of the screen room and the entire body of the main tent. Locate the D-rings on the base of the tent and attach the fly hooks to the closest rings. This will tighten the fly to the tent body.
  7. Locate the guy ropes on the fly. Pull the ropes to the ground at an angle and pound stakes through the loops to anchor the tent to the ground.

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. =)

Hillary ten person family tent


Step 1 Choose a spot to set up your tent. Look for level ground that's free of large rocks or other debris. Make sure you're safely away from your campfire. If it's possible, pitch your tent away from your kitchen area as not to bring animals too close should they be attracted by the smell of food. Once you've chosen a spot, clear the ground of small rocks and sticks to give you a comfortable floor to sleep on. Step 2 Unroll your tent. Put the rainfly and poles aside. Open the tent body so it lays flat on the site you chose. Orient the door so it faces in an accessible direction. Step 3 Take out the tent poles. A basic Hillary tent will use two long poles for the tent body and one short pole of the rainfly. Assemble the two long poles and thread them through the pole guides on the tent body, attaching them to the holes in each tent corner to raise the tent. Step 4 Open the rainfly. Assemble the shorter pole and guide it through the top of the rainfly. Place the rainfly on top of the tent and secure it to the bottom of the tent body with the attached hooks. Step 5 Stake down your tent. You don't want to be surprised by a storm in the middle of the night or while you're away from camp. Stake your tent even if the weather is clear when your arrive. Use a stake at least in each corner of the tent. Find a rock to hammer them firmly into the ground.

No instructions giving to erect our tent 6 man regatta hyperdome model no 927/5887


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.

Enjoy

Need instruction manual for the Ridgeway Moab Model 89034. 4 room tent


I borrowed one of these and got most of the job done. Here's what I ended up doing:
At a site with good drainage, a little uphill, stake down the floor of the tent
Longest two poles go through the twin sleeves in the center/top. They are color coded red and yellow
These two poles are anchored at the base by the center color coded ring_peg
The tube ends of the fiberglass poles. Fit over these pegs.

The slightly shprter fiberglass poles go trhough the two blue sleeves.
These poles get anchored on one end by a yellow ring peg and on the other by a red ring peg. They hold the vented windows up.

The arch shaped pole is threaded through a black sleeve atop the entrance to the. Tent.
The arch is anchored on either side by a red ring peg on one end and a yellow peg on the other.

Stake the lines from the screen windows outwards from the tent

Spread the tarp over the top and stake the corners to shelter the screened top from rain

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!
