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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Most dome tents are assembled by feeding the rounded (or bendable) poles through loops on the inside of the tent cover. Small connectors and joints should be included to put the poles together into the shape below. Good Luck!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Remove the tent and poles from the packaging. Select an indoor area with a high ceiling or an outdoor area without overhead obstacles. The poles are not excessively long but they will be difficult to assemble without space.
Lay the Princess tent with the floor on the ground. Pull on each corner to tighten the floor. Assemble the two tent poles by inserting the male sections into the metal ferrules.
Slide one pole through each of the diagonal sleeves. Place the end of each pole in the fabric pockets on the corners. This will flex the poles and raise the tent body.
Place the fabric roof on top of the tent. Attach the hooks on each corner of the roof to the loops on the top of the pole sleeves. The roof fabric will stretch tight and cover the ventilation gap in the tent ceiling.
I recently borrowed a similar tent and this forum was all the instructions I had (so thanks, they helped). I have since found the instructions, scanned them and made them available to others (to view/print/download) at https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B1SdA-vKLONwZ05vTGZKdF9BTzQ Paul.
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!
General tent setup instructions:
thread assembled poles through sleeves
connect one end of poles into tent corners
1 by 1 connect the other end of the pole, work front to back and the tent should assemble quite easy.
