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.

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.

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).

Tesco 6 Person Vis-a-Vis Tent Instructions


Whoever they employed to write the instructions should be shot or go back to kindergarten....how difficult can it be?

Anyway, this tent is relatively easy to put up IF you know how to do it...which the instructions are painfully inadequate. It (un)helpfully uses colour coding on black and white print out and not explaining which way around the longer/shorter poles should be. Actually, once the poles are in, the instructions are ok....but it is a major point and wastes a shtload of time.
There are 2 LONG (well, slightly longer) poles, with a yellow sticker on the end (which comes off after 1 use of the tent). Start on one side of the tent with 2 poles (one longer, one shorter). Slide the long pole into the inner rib (ie towards the middle of the tent), then put in the shorter pole on the outside rib (i.e.the furthest away from the middle). You do need some grunt to force these into place, but at least they go (they won't if you put the wrong pole in the wrong slot). Then do the other side of the tent, longer first (inside), shorter second (outside). Then just pin everything else together like the instructions show.
The tent is ok, just ok, not great, not terrible, although it is pretty terrible in the wind, but what do you expect for 60 quid.

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!

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
