Two side pieces are spring loaded, so pretty easy to lift up each side.
The bungie cords are supposed to keep the sides from going too far, however, Louis says they are not that good in a strong crosswind.
Align the top of each side with the other side, latch in place.
Lift the back wall top section up and latch together from the inside.
Step inside and lift the front wall and latch from the inside.
And, we're camping...
It's pretty small inside, but, it has big windows on all four sides and it's like being inside an A-Frame cabin, lots of natural light when the curtains are pulled back.
Here's some interior photos.
And, the front wall at the peak.
Interesting that it has in the left cabinet (where the sink is located) a front opening fridge that only operates on 110VAC according to Louis.
In the right side cabinet, there is a propane heater and some storage.
The center of the bed can be lifted to make a table with a seat on the left and another one on the right.
After he showed me his, I showed him mine. We had a good couple of hours just talking about our pop-up truck campers. I gave him some ideas on replacing that fridge with a 12VDC compressor unit and adding a solar panel with a charge controller, and a good battery.
