I would waterproof them, and for that I suggest Scotchguard. Apply and forget it. Also make sure your seams are seasoned too. Swells the threads in the stitches for a better seal. Did the full treatment and have no issues with any grade of rainstorm.

You should not need to waterproof the tenting. Check your owners manual and see if it tells you to "season" the tenting. In my 2010 manual it says to soak the tenting, 3 times IIRC, letting it dry in between.
No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D
