Hi Everyone,

I'm exceptionally wet behind the ears and have only been a very proud caravan owner for 4 weeks. Gone away for 2 weekends and after a lot of swearing and sweating, managed to get the rally awning up. 

Now, we are are taking my eldest daughter and 3 of her friends away for a weekend at the end of the month. I will have to pout the main L-Shaped tent up and I'm absolutely dreading it. I'm going to buy extra base sockets and install then on an outside wall so that i can practice putting the tent up, or at least getting the correct poles in the correct places and marking them. 

Could anyone point me ion the right direction where I could buy a manual or pay someone to email me a copy? 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

Thanks everyone

put the tent up in your yard first , start early . when you got it figured out and up, mark everything , write it down with a sketch . by the third time or so it will become the norm.

two roads diverged in a wood and i took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

Welcome to the Forum

I fully agree with what  George has suggested .  I also have a Regal and it takes us about two to three  hours to set up camp ....."the more you practice , the luckier you get"

Regretfully I cannot assist you with a manual but I am sure other forum members could come to your rescue .

Happy camping , you will find a wealth of info here , especially being new to caravaning

Baie geluk met jou wa.

Het myne nou vir drie dae en pas terug van die eerste kamp.

As n ou kamper is daar maar iets wat jy eers mooi moet sit en dink voor dit werk.

Oefen en stekte.

 

As jy wil he jou drome moet waar word, moet jy eers wakker word.

Stephan  if you have the manual for the exact L-shape tent would you please forward it to me as well.  This is for my own data base.

I do have the manuals for the other normal tents though.

Welcome to the forum!

The best way to mark the poles is to wrap different coloured insulation tape around the ends where they join.

Or you can paint rings on the ends, but it does wear off and looks tatty.

Your strongest weapon is your mind!
And then there's, Power Tools!
