I know this is kinda weird but why didn't you just go to go outdoors and get the right poles from them? they where the ones that sold the tent in the first place

I doubt I can help anyway, but can we clear up a little confusion (on my part, at least!)?

I get the impression that the OP is looking for a flexi pole (Fibreglass or similar), but a quick google of the Nimbus 8 only brings up the inflatable "Airgo" version, and that includes the inflatable porch.
No mention of a poled version of the Nimbus, even on the UKCS Tent Reviews - Hi-Gear page.

Are we looking for a spare inflatable tube, or a pole? And if a pole, are we looking at the fibreglass type, or steel/Alloy?

It's just that if we are looking at flexi-poles, I'm under the impression it is very simple to cut down spare (longer) poles (available the world over, apparently?), and re-thread the elastic to suit. Apparently loads of vids on youtube showing how to do it. It may be that the poles you have will suffice, possibly with a little simple modification?

Sorry for the confusion. Hopefully someone will be along soon with something a little more helpful!

In that case, you may be on to a winner!

If the complete pole you have is not long enough, you can buy separate sections (just need to ensure the diameter matches). If it's too long, or if you add that extra section which then makes it too long, you can simply cut section(s) down with a hacksaw. All the other techniques you may need should be evident in This or similar videos.

I reiterate, I've never done this, but it does appear to be a quick, easy, and cheap way of sorting things, if what I have read on here is anything to go by.

Let us know how you get on, and apologies if any of the above proves incorrect/misleading.
