If you have not already done so, I suggest you contact the Wenzel Tent & Gear Co. directly and ask a Customer Service representative about the availability of assembly instructions for your Wenzel tent style. The company may hold instructions in the corporate archives which can be copied (for a fee) for you.
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.
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.
