    Default Canvas tent question

    Hi everyone and thanks for all the great information.

    I have springbar tent that I have had for a couple of months and due to work and the weather I have not been able to set it up and wet it down for the first time per the instructions. I will be going camping next week and will try to wet it down and let it dry after I set it up at the camp site but the weather forecast calls for rain the first few days of the camp out. If after wetting it down if it does not dry and we get rain will this cause any problems or will canvas swell up and perform as it should?

    Thanks
    Rick

    I can't foresee any problems with the canvas. Wet is wet. The problem comes from storing it wet. But I can't see wanting to camp in a wet tent. Personally, I would go camping with a tarp over the tent and worry about the wetting down and drying when you get home.
