Yes, that is very possible, I'm also suspecting that's why they traded it in and didn't bother saying anything. I am fairly certain they knew it was leaking, the stains I found in the seams of the roof portion tells me this had happened before. But, hey we have new tents now and can make sure they are cared for, so all is good.
