1993- 1206 canvas replacement suggestions.

Hello, looking for some suggestions on replacing or repairing the canvas. It leaks considerably on one end and slightly less on the other. It seems to me that it's coming in where the seam meets on the upper side of the bunk. Ive tried cleaning the seams and always ensure it's dried out properly. Were the 3rd owners and the canvas was in decent shape when we bought it. I quickly looked at bearcreek and a couple other places and was hoping to avoid buying US with our brutal exchange these days. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks.

If the canvas is in overall good condition just use seam sealer on it, and spray the canvas surface with water proofing spray. Both can be purchased anywhere that sells tents and camping supplies.

I actually forgot to mention Id applied seam sealer. It helped slightly but not enough to prevent bedding to get wet.

When I had a tent I usually had to apply 2 applications of seam sealer. As the tent got older it went from once every couple of years to every year. Also, apply it in the inside of the seams.
