Before your first camping outing, we highly recommend you set up the tent at home, and become familiar with the parts and set up procedure. Your storage bag contains the following: the tent and the fly, one pole bag containing the folded tent frame, and one stake bag with stakes and guy lines. You'll also find waterproof instructions sewn right inside the storage sack so they're always there when you need them.
1. Selecting a site. Select a level site that is clear of debris or other objects that could damage the tent or compromise set-up. Check above the site for any potentially dangerous tree limbs that could fall on your tent.
2. Assembling the tent. Unroll the tent and separate the components. Spread out the tent body and assemble the tent frame. The frame consists of shock-corded aluminum poles that fit together to form a modified 'H' shape. There are two nylon pole hubs on each side of the frame. The guy-out loops on the hub should be facing up. Lay the frame over the tent body. The pole hubs should be over the doors on the sides of the tent.
One at a time, insert the four leg poles into the grommet of the nylon webbing at each corner of the tent. Attach the tent's plastic pole clips to the tent frame. To anchor the tent, stake out the tent using the stakeout loops where the leg poles are attached. In windy conditions, you may find it helpful to stake the tent out before attaching the poles. Attach the end of the poles over the doors into the grommets on the piece of webbing at the top of the door.
3. Installing the rain fly. Pull the fly over the tent. The zippered vestibule doors should be over the tent's doors. Locate the four Velcro closure loops on the underside of the fly, and attach to the frame's leg poles. It is important the fly is lined up correctly over the tent. Make sure the center seam is directly over the frame's center cross pole. There are small, reinforced panels on the fly that should be directly over the nylon pole hubs.
Attach the grommets located at each corner of the fly to the four leg poles. The fly's grommets should slip over the pole tips beneath the tent's nylon webbing. Tighten the nylon webbing so that the fly material is taut and not resting against the body of the tent. Finally, stake out the fly. There are four stakeout points on the bottom of the fly, one at each vestibule, and one on each side of the tent.
4. Storing the tent. The most important rule is always be sure the tent is completely dry before putting it into storage. A tent that is stored wet or even damp will allow mildew and mold to grow, which will eventually destroy the tent's fabric. Store the tent in a cool, dry place.
