I have a Outwell "Iowa" Tunnel Tent, It's so easy to put up even in a strong wind.



Photo taken at Shell Island, North Wales.


The First thing to do is Peg the four corners down so it can't go anywhere.





All the Sleeves where the Tent Poles go are colour coded.

Put the right colour Poles into the sleeve.











Make sure before you engage the Pole Clips that the poles are through the sleeve correctly.






Once all the poles are up then you can peg the tent down with the guy ropes....EASY lol

Hi Bert I have had no problems with the tent leaking and ive been in some severe weather. One other thing for you to consider is the electric connection I have 30 mts and you do need the special 3 pin round plugs as shown in the photo...Frank

Hey I might be stating the obvious but when you connect to the electrical supply on site Please make sure all the wire is off the drum and not coiled up as this can start a fire...I know you know this Hahaha
