Setup Instructions

  1. Prepare for Setup

    • Select a level site clear of rocks, branches, and other hard or sharp objects, to set up your tent.
    • Remove all contents from bag.
    • Unfold (4) leg poles at the joints.
  2. Lift Up Arm Joints
    NOTE : 2 people will be needed to erect and extend the tent poles.

    • Lift up on arm joints (fig. 1) until roof poles angle upward at joints and tent partially stands up.
  3. Extend Leg Poles
    NOTE : DO NOT extend telescoping poles until all legs and ceiling hubs are elevated.

    • Extend each of the (4) leg poles until the locking buttons “click,” and lock the poles into place (fig. 2).
  4. Stake Tent

    • You can now easily move your tent to its final position before installing the rainfly.
    • Drive stakes at a 45º angle through web loop at base of tent to secure to ground (fig. 3).
    • Floor of tent should be taut when staked properly.
  5. Attach Rainfly with Awning Pole

    • Drape rainfly over tent, placing “CORE” logo over the tent door.
    • Push black awning pole through the sleeve on the underside of the rainfly above the tent door.
    • Arch black awning pole and insert the pins on each end into the grommets located near tent poles on either side of the door (fig. 4).
    • Attach (4) hook-and-loop tabs on underside of rainfly to tent poles (fig. 5).
    • Snap plastic clip located at corners of rainfly onto the leg pole where “rainfly” is indicated (fig. 6).
  6. Stake Rainfly, Secure Ground Vents and Guylines

    • Remove guylines from green guyline pockets located on rainfly.
    • Stake out each guyline at a 45 degree angle (fig. 7).
    • Tighten guylines as needed by adjusting the slider up the cord.

Take Down Instructions:

  • Leave door unzipped during take down, to allow air to escape tent.
  • Pull stakes from guylines and ground vent. Store in stake bag.
  • Release hook and loop fasteners on the underside of rainfly from poles.
  • Push awning pole through pole sleeve to remove. Store in pole bag.
  • Remove short eave arms from hook-and-loop pockets on the underside of rainfly.
  • Unbuckle rainfly, remove, and fold into thirds lengthwise. This will be rolled up with the tent.
  • Unlock the (4) telescoping leg poles and push down on the arm joints to collapse.
  • Fold all of the collapsed poles to the center of the tent.
  • Gather folded tent poles and fabric into the center to form a pod, compressing to release any air left in tent.
  • Store in carry bag with bag of stakes.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Are replacement parts available?
    Yes, just call Customer Service at 1-888-775-5628 for replacement parts. All parts can be replaced.

  • How do I get everything back in the bag?
    The trick is to take your time and remove all the air. Use the weight of the poles to roll the tent on the ground and force air out.

  • What are the ground vents?
    The ground vents are designed to help with air flow throughout the tent, which keeps the tent cooler in warm weather and prevent condensation. It can be staked shut in colder weather.

  • How to clean the tent?
    Clean the tent with a soft sponge, mild soap and tepid water. Be sure to scrub gently and remove all soap. Let dry in sunlight, which also naturally cleans the tent.

  • What is the wall plug symbol?
    That is a port for an electrical cord to access your tent. The electrical cord can be used on a campsite with power or with a generator outside your tent. It closes fully when not in use.

  • Can the tent be used in the rain?
    Absolutely. The tent and rainfly have a water resistent treatment, and the seams have been sealed with water resistent tape at the factory.

  • How many seasons is this tent?
    This is a 2-3 season tent, not recommended for use in severe weather conditions.

  • What are the dimensions of the tent?
    The tent is 10 ft x 9 ft x 72 in (3 m x 2.74 m x 1.8 m).

  • What are the ceiling panels?
    These zippable panels allow you to customize both your light and ventilation. Having them open will allow light into your tent during the day, and increase ventilation. Keeping them closed will keep the inner tent dark and warm on those cool nights at the campsite.
