Question about Coleman 17' X 9' Weathermaster® Elite Screened Tent
Go on youtube, you will find some excellent videos on how to....on a range of tents. I saw the coleman sahara tent on a video last year as I was considering buying one! Good luck!

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

Wow, thats a monster tent. I'll get you most of the way there, but I may miss a thing or two
Lay it down, stretch it out and peg it. That will save you a ton of time.
Next, find the four longest poles. These are the supports. Two on each side of the door, crossing diagonally to the rear. Put one end of the poles in the holes and bend until you can get the other end in. These poles should slide through sleeves in the tent. Once these are up, the rest are "extras." The tent has hooks to hold the poles to the tent.
You have two poles of equal lengths for the side windows. Again, route them thru a sleeve, bending them into the holes on either side of the windows. I can't tell, but it looks like you have a pole system for the front door too. Somehow these poles go next to the main support poles and meet up under the rain cover.
Next, lay the rain cover on top of the tent. It should connect by bungies to the bottom of the pole support holes. There might be a pole or two under the rain cover, but above the tent for support. If so. look for a small pouch that a pole could slide into on the bottom side of the rain cover. You'll run the pole from the pouch to another pouch (all under the rain cover).
Don't worry about strings or extra poles. These are for high wind. Pegging the tent down is good enough.

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

1. Usually you can go to the website of the manufacturer and get a sheet of instructions, or you can get them from a dealer.
2. Try it. You might find that it is obvious once you get it spread out. I bought one with no instructions once, and there was only one step that took a while to figure out.
3. Try a friend or neighbour who is an experienced camper. They might be able to figure it out pretty quickly.
