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!
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.
Whoever they employed to write the instructions should be shot or go back to kindergarten....how difficult can it be?
Anyway, this tent is relatively easy to put up IF you know how to do it...which the instructions are painfully inadequate. It (un)helpfully uses colour coding on black and white print out and not explaining which way around the longer/shorter poles should be. Actually, once the poles are in, the instructions are ok....but it is a major point and wastes a shtload of time. There are 2 LONG (well, slightly longer) poles, with a yellow sticker on the end (which comes off after 1 use of the tent). Start on one side of the tent with 2 poles (one longer, one shorter). Slide the long pole into the inner rib (ie towards the middle of the tent), then put in the shorter pole on the outside rib (i.e.the furthest away from the middle). You do need some grunt to force these into place, but at least they go (they won't if you put the wrong pole in the wrong slot). Then do the other side of the tent, longer first (inside), shorter second (outside). Then just pin everything else together like the instructions show. The tent is ok, just ok, not great, not terrible, although it is pretty terrible in the wind, but what do you expect for 60 quid.
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.
Assemble all the poles, thread poles through sleeves, connect one end of the poles to the tent, stand up one by one! North face and sierra design tents are tricky at first but get easier the more times you do it!
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
