Hi All
I have just purchased a 1993 Gypsey Caravette 6B and I think there may be some poles missing or I am not sure about the set up of the main tent and the patio. Has anyone got the instructions for the tent and patio set up. I am not sure about the centre ridge pole set up? Can anyone assist?

I suggest to follow Geert's instructions as above.
At least you will have a beginning if not the same, from there you can start to play around with the poles.
Another suggestion is to sort out your poles:
- Long in the middle.
- Short, both sides.
This is very important to count the poles. Equal Qty' will be side poles.
Always set your tent up from the middle outwards.
When you set down, start from "Visa Versus", meaning from the outside to the middle.

If you have the space for it at home, lay the poles out in the order of Gert's diagram on your lawn first, if all is ok, mark your poles ie. red for left, blue for centre, and black for right. Once you have the positioning of the poles correct erect the poles and tent.

Hi, will the colour-coded tent pole guide also apply to a 1992 Sprite Sprint? We bought the 'van with a Rally and main tent, but we have never erected the main tent, so we don't know if we even have the correct poles for the main tent. The Rally tent has been ideal for us so far.
