Need instructions on assembling 2-5 person house shaped tent


House shaped tent is not an adequate description to make erektion suggestions.

Broadly speaking tents are divided into categories of dome, tunnel, ridge, bell or frame.

The ridge tent is sort of house shaped and the classic frame tent also, though this is usually referred to as a bungalow or perhaps chalet tent. None of these types peaks in the centre of the top and neither does a house, usually.

A small marquee peaks in the centre of the top and is also vaguely house-shaped but it seems somehow unlikely you have a small marquee..



It is also important to know whether there is an inner and an outer tent or flysheet and a sewn-in groundsheet, single pole, ridge pole, frame, fibreglass rods or perhaps an A frame.



I can't advise much without knowing what sort of tent you have but I advise you to practice, practice, practice and colour code or number each pole assembly. Bad weather when pitching for the first time is too late to be trying to read instructions and wondering which pole section goes where.

I also advise taking extra pegs and guy ropes in case of accidents or really foul weather. Tents are provided with minimum equipment for moderate weather pitched on hard packed loam type ground.



For different types of ground; sandy soil or rocky different designs of pegs are available and should be used along with heavy stones or sandbags. Double pegging is also advisable in some circumstances.



Preparation and attention to detail is the key to a successful camping trip. No extra precautions often turns a simple camping trip into pure misery. I once camped at the top of a high cliff when bad weather was expected. I double-pegged and fitted extra guy ropes and slept right through a gale while my companion laid awake petrified. The tent never moved but in the morning we were the only campers left on that part of the site.

How do I assembly the tent


Step 1 Remove the tent, poles, stakes and tent rope of the dome tent from the Northwest Territory sack. Locate a large flat area and remove any sticks and rocks from the ground. Step 2 Lay the tent fabric on the ground with the bathtub style floor face down. Pull the corners of the fabric tight and rotate the tent so the door is facing in the direction you want. Use a hammer to stake the corners in the ground. Step 3 Assemble the two long poles to their full length. The pole segments are connected by chords and will easily snap into place. Slide one pole through the diagonal sleeve on the top of the tent. Slide the other pole through the other diagonal sleeve to form an "X" with the poles. Step 4 Place the end of each pole in the corresponding grommet. The poles will bend and the shelter will be erected. Step 5 Assemble the two small poles. Slide one pole in the doorway sleeve and the other in the back window sleeve. The poles will bend slightly to create a rain peak on the door and window. Step 6 Pull the doormat tight and pound stakes through the loops on each corner. Pull the tent rope tight on the back of the tent and pound a stake through the rope loop to anchor the tent to the ground.

American camper tent 2455 setup


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. =)

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!
