Is it similar to the other "spring-up" types? If so they are very easy to do.

The best & easiest shower tent is the Sitro Change Shelter, distributed by Gasmate.
Most Aussie Disposals have them around $79.00.

G'day Shaker
Have you tried all of the multitude of offerings to be able to make such a statement?
We don't own the one you mention and ours is dead set simple to erect and fold up.
Cheers from the Moose

Sorry to generalise, as I didn't realise that anyone would split hairs!

Let me try again .....

The best & easiest shower tent THAT I HAVE OWNED, OR SEEN USED is the Sitro Change Shelter, distributed by Gasmate.
Most Aussie Disposals have them around $79.00.

Easy to erect.

We used ours once, then the wife decided she wasn't camping any more.

You can buy mine at a cheap price, make me an offer.

We have the Coleman tent and it is easy with two people but a bit of a handful by yourself, as it goes all over the place and there are not enough hands available. I have only used it twice, so might be better with more practice. Kept the girls very happy once it was up though. MMc

ever tried putting half a dozen brown snakes into your pole carrier? Packing your dunny away is similar to that - putting it up is a breeze. I can't be bothered putting it away and just put the bugger under the mattress. Takes up about 10mm thickness and I don't feel the need to down a case of the golden stuff in 10 mins afterwards.

Looking at the Coleman Web site, the "Insta-Set" shower tent is not the same as the other "pop-up" style tents. it uses a different principal with external supports.
(Not exactly cheap though)

There is reference to an instruction .pdf file on their Web site.

Coleman Insta-Set Tent

As for the other style of "pop-up" shower tents, it is just a matter of practicing a couple of times.
