not sure where you mean water not getting in.
wet canvas will drip once it's pulled inside, when closing up in the rain.
some use towels from the inside, to dry most of it. but yes, water will get in but it shouldn't be a big deal.
as was said, it's very important to re-open the bunk ends when you get home.
even if it's still raining.
closing up wet bunk ends without letting them eventually dry out, will result in mold/mildew.
this is true with popups also.

From what I've seen at the rv show, it seems the canvas is sealed all around the bed door, not like our tent trailer where I have to pull the bunjee cords. When putting away, the tenting goes on top of the beds, getting them wet.

but the wet outside of the canvas will find its way down, draining, to the hinge/sill area of the bunk door.
as far as i know, there's no area for it to drain to so you'll need to look at it when you get home.
the pre-attached canvas is a new thing.
ours has the snaps and bungees, so we pull our canvas inside and can wipe most of it off.
