A few years back in Texas "Northerly", I spent the night holding on the slide-out poles. I was lucky they did not bend.
Anything over 30 mph was a long night for us. In a few "blows" we opened everything up to allow the wind to pass through.

We've been through some pretty nasty thunderstorms in our PUP. One time, it wasn't to terrible windy, but it rained so heavily that I would have to go out every 10 minutes or so, and push a broomhandle against the awing to get the bucket or two of rain that would collect there.

I had that happen to me om my first trip. Not knowing any better, I left the awning out on a rain storm. Water collected on it and it came crashing down! The fun part was getting out of the camper, the awning got wedged against it. Bent a few poles broke one, and my tool bag caught most of the water from the awning. Forgot to mention, had a new drill inside the bag! Still, it was fun to go camping while learning about what to do and what not to do depending on the weather.

Pop up in Storms

I was in a storm with my Coleman Bayside, wind was coming from every different direction push and pulling the canvas. I was sitting there watching the roof move around swaying in the breeze just wondering how much more the lift cables were going to take. Thank god I didn't have the awning out. The next morning, most of the tents were flat or blown over, I found out the winds were in the 50-60mph range. The pup handled it well, I was a nervous wreck just waiting for the roof cables to let loose.

It was scary, but educational on just how much these pups can take.
