While they should not leak after a couple of years, when all is said and done it is still tenting material and needs to be cared for as such. You're right, the previous owner probably did something to it. Perhaps camped under trees that stained the vinyl and used something harsh to clean it. Maybe the leaks are why they got rid of it? Glad you got it worked out.

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.

I really feel bad about bunk ends that leak, I can truthfully say that we just went through 6 days (6/27--7/2) of down pour after down pour and absolutely no leaks in our 2009 19H.. I should name it Noahs Ark lARRY
