    I've taken ownership of a relatively un-used Satellite Plus tent, minus its pegs and instructions. Can anyone either scan a set of instructions, or give me a potted list of which parts to peg first for best results?

    Incidentally, while searching I've seen a few people looking for info on Saunders Tents. Although the company has gone, their website is still viewable via the Wayback Machine:

    Is that the same one there was a picture of a day or two ago?

    If so I had an Ultimate Tramp 2 which isn't massively different apart from an A frame at the front instead of the loop and no extended porch.

    1st Peg the tail into the wind.

    Thread hoop but don't pull it up.

    Insert tail end small pole.

    Pull the thing up from the apex of the loop.

    peg at front (bit of a guess - as I said, didn't have the extension).

    Insert extension pole.

    Peg out and tweak until happy.

    The hoop gives more space than an A but isn't as solid. I'm guessing the inside is quite "cosy" away from the door. I'm also guessing the top may billow about quite a bit in a blow. Early tunnels like the Peapod tended to bottom out in the middle this seems like a peapod/Tramp hybrid. Take care threading the hoop, tents tend to break down there and if you're not carefull you can put the pole through the sleeve wall. With care it's usually not an issue though. Enjoy!

    Don't know if you are still interested but I have the instructions albeit sightly tatty after 25 years and would be happy to scan and send to you.

    Hi, I too have just acquired a satellite plus, sadly with no instructions, I think it is all there, but if anyone still has the paperwork and could either post it here, or email me it would be good to have.

    Thanks Will

    Robert Saunders Satellite plus instructions

    Hi David, i wondered if you still have the instructions for the Satellite plus, as i have just acquired one minus the pitching instructions.

    I am new to forums, so apologies if i have not gone about it the right way.

    Cheers Will
