Hi all. I was given a Challenger Classic XL5 by my girlfriends friend the other week to use at a music festival, but on inspection of the bags contents, I've discovered that it has no instructions. I saw Bernie mentioned he had a copy of the instructions scanned onto his computer, and was wondering if he could send me a copy please? I have no idea where to start on this tent, as it's a lot older than the last tent I put up and the assembly seems very different. Thank you in advance for any help.

Those are the instructions for the Challenger, the Classic XL5 has a different front layout with one front centre pole, the door to one side and a window to the other side. I will see if I still have the instructions.

Thank you very much. Turns out there's a couple of bits missing.

I've just spotted one of these on the well known auction site based in cornwall with what looks like Victoria 1's picture

I know I have one of these but I'm always looking at them


I've just spotted one for sale with the same picture. Amazing how many people put lemons on top of their poles!

Hi does anyone know which size/ type of ridge pole ends this tent needs? I've ordered 18mm and 19mm which seem too big, 14mm is way too small- at a bit of a loss! Need to replace the end that meets the A frame as it snapped when taking the tent down :(

What do you mean by ridge pole ends?
Do you mean the nylon inserts in the ends of the ridge pole to fit over the upright poles?

Kikiglis...I've got 2 unused ones left over from our old Challenger Royale. Very easy to break unless you take the frame down carefully. one says 3/4".
If you pm your address I'm happy to post them to you.

Sorry, UKCS doesn't have a PM facility, but I believe Admin will, at your request, pass on your email address.
