x's 2 youroo, I always set mine with a slight tilt to drain. If it rains I'm surely not going to bring everything inside to keep it dry, they are made to give you shade and protection from rain. Other then that they would be useless.......I like the manual better myself, but with pole support they hold up fine, in both wind and rain and I don't have to worry if I'm away and a storm moves in......
