Here are some pitching instructions that you can make use of for you to be able to set up your Vango tent easily and properly. This guide is very simple and not hard to follow so don’t think that it is going to be a challenge learning how to do this task.
First Pitching of the Flysheet
The first thing that you must do in setting up a Vango Tempest 200 tent is to put together the tent’s poles and place them aligned to the ground. These poles are the long, medium and short alloy poles. The next step is to unfasten the flysheet and properly place it on the ground. Check its tension straps if they are already detached from one another. Choose the direction that you want and make your tent face there. After that, you must look into the outer part of the flysheet and then find the pole sleeves. Once you do, put the medium and long poles inside it. After that, you must put the short pole and place it unto the eyelets. Find the tip of every main pole and place it on its designated eyelet located on the anchor straps of the pole.
Begin at one side of the tent. The poles must be pushed in such a way that they would resemble arcs. The pole ends must be placed on their designated eyelets which are found on pole anchor straps. You must make sure that the tension straps are tight. Attach the anchor straps at the back of the tent with the use of the attachments provided. In order for you to see the complete form of the tent, you must draw the flysheet at the opposite direction of the attached points. The last attachments should be utilized in attaching the anchor straps which can be found in front. The poles must then be connected to the clips of the flysheet. Ensure that no anchor straps are left unattached and once you are done doing this, you must then attach all the guy lines.
Setting Up the Inner Tent
First of all, you must unfasten the inner tent of the Vango Tempest 200 which can be found in the flysheet. The doorway must be placed in a direction that is in accordance with the entrance of the porch. Begin with the back part of the Vango tent and connect the groundsheet and hooks to their designated rings which are located on the anchors straps of the flysheet. After that, you must now connect the inner tent hooks to the inner flysheet rings. Arrange the attachment and the groundsheet of the porch as a final step of this procedure.
Tension Band System
Take away the band system from the pockets. Attach it to the designated sockets at the top of every pole. Make adjustments until the straps are already tight. Make sure that the back TBS straps are intertwined on the inner parts’ access points. It is highly suggested that you too much tension must not be exerted into the tent to prevent distortion of poles.
There you have it, your new tent is fully set up. Now just put your sleeping stuff inside it and start enjoying the camping experience.
