We have just bought a Gerlert Tanis - its a tunnel tent with 2 bedroom compartments (vis a vis?). Trouble is...there's no instructions and we're complete virgin campers and are going tomorrow.

We tried putting it up in the garden today and are having a wee bit of trouble. Looked pretty wonky and not very taut fitting.

It has a sewn in groundsheet attached to the bedroom sections and an outer fly sheet.

What we tried was:

Attach bedroom section to fly sheet
Insert poles
put in guy ropes
peg it all down

Is this the right order, or what would the order be?

Gelert website states instructions are sewn into the carry bag. Have you checked this?

Yes, I saw that but it was more pointers of don't pitch on rocks and stuff rather than specific instructions of how to erect the tent. I guess we'll wing it and see!
