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!

Do not have instructions how to set it up?


What type of tent?
Typically, aluminum poles are "vertical",
while fiberglass (flexible) poles are "horizontal" (to support the top of the tent).

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.

    Hello. I have a disney princess bed tent that my daughter recieved for christmas. We went to go and set it up and the instructions are missing. Is it possible to get a copy faxed/emailed to me?


    I just put one of these up today with no instructions so I am going to share my experience. In my Disney bed tent there were two long sets of poles held together by an elastic string. 1) put these two sets of poles together. Now you should have two long poles. 2) Turn the three way brackets all the same direction on both long poles. 3) Lay out the tent and look in each corner of the tent for a little pocket to insert the end of a long pole...taking the other end insert into pocket, not diagonally, straight across the long way. 4) Do the same with the other side of the tent and long pole. 5) Now take your ten short poles and attach two together making 5 medium sized poles 6) Push these into the brackets along the long pole, kind of has a ladder effect. You are done!! I use mine with a full size blow up bed, the elastic gets stretched but I can set it up easily outside, or in the livingroom. Enjoy Nancy

    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.

    I have a great land tent and we went camping this past weekend and got soaked is their any garentee on the product or replacement. The front sheild canopy pole also snapped in half very unsatisfied and...


    did you set tent up at home once and soak ot down with water and let it completely dry before using it?
    I have several greatland tents and never have trouble
    When it is raining the most important thing to do is to make SURE that nothing is touching the tent material on the inside as to that is what causes water to start to leak thru .Just like a wick. Once the tent gets wet the fibers swell and seal the material stoping the water from coming thru and this getting wet is actually the only waterproofing needed . Taking a tent down wet or damp defeats this and must be setup again and soaked and allowed to dry all over again.As for warranty you have to check the owners manual, The pole having snapped sounds like its possible it was put in place in the wrong spot

    No instructions on how to set up 3-bedroom Coleman tent.


    First, I would try Coleman.com and see if they can send you a manual or direct you on their website.

    Assuming the picture is the tent I can help (and even if it isn't, these are basic setup steps). Peg the tent down. Lay it out and pick about six spots to peg it down.

    Next, get the two or three longest poles. These are the support poles. Run them diagonally or maybe side to side through the pole sleeves on the top of the tent. Once all the way through, put one end in the hole (or possibly in the pin) depending on if you poles have points or holes in the end. You'll then bend the pole, raising a portion of the tent to make the other end of the pole fit. Look for hooks to hold the tent poles to the poles. Do the same for the other pole/s. And it doesn't matter which pole goes together first.

    Once you have the two or three longest ones in, the rest is extra. From the looks of it, you may have one pole running from the door area to the rear. If there is one, it's usually slid into a pouch and tied with a plastic string at the top of the tent to the other poles.

    Other poles, if they are there are for side support or rain cover support.

    Figure out which way the rain cover goes, then attach the bungie to the pole at the base of the pole. It should have some type of hook. Once the cover is on, it may take a pole underneath it. If so, there will be a small pocket or pouch for the pole.

    Don't worry about the strings and extra stuff. (Unless you're expecting monster winds). You should have extra pegs, strings and maybe a pole or two. As long as you get the main two or three support poles up, you're solid. Good luck
