Bunk end material soft shell?

Clarify material of hybrid bunk ends. 2011 palimino stampede 195. Says soft shell. Looking to use canvak on bunk ends for water proofing. Says not to apply to vinyl or synthetic materials. Is it canvas, vinyl or synthetic? Thanks in advance.

From I've learned over the 10 years I've owned my Roo, it's vinylized canvas.

Not sure why you want to waterproof it, they don't need it.
unless you are talking about the tent windows which aren't vinylized.

Should be a manufacter tag along one of the tent seams. Contact them.
Roo/Shamrock tent ends are made by TJ Snuggles in Indiana.

Why do you think they need waterproofing?

Got a drip or 2 that came through during rain storm. Other bump dry as bone. Wet to touch. I know you will get condensation, but feel it was leaking threw.

Are you sure that it wasn't tent seams leaking or some tiny holes in the canvas.
These are common causes, not leaking through intact vinylized canvas.

I think water pooled in one section as not taught. Just tring to do preventive maintenance. Since it is vinyl I will leave it alone. Thanks

Stampede 21 2001,The bunk have a few pin hole and vinyl discoloration and leak and I wonder if I was to use a white rubber paint that I use to apply to my marine rubber fender and if it would stick to that tent material??
Or you might have a better solution!
Cannot afford $1000.to replace the bunk tent!!!
Thank you

Well, the canvas is vinyl coated, not rubber.
Never heard of anyone using such a paint on the tent ends, in 12 years of being on various Hybrid forums.

Have you checked with a boat canvas repair shop?
Pretty similar materials and might be a cheaper repair.
