Canvas need to be dry before closing up?

We had family over and the teens wanted to stay in the trailer last night. Temps were in the 30s and I'm pretty sure it's wet on the bunks. I'm ready to close it down but wondering if I should wait till it dries up a bit or manually dry it prior to folding them up. Thoughts?

dry off what you can, open when you get home so it can fully air dry

It's home, they just slept in the trailer on the side of our house. Just leave it open to air dry out? It should start getting warmer the next few days.

that would be your best bet. Closing it with any moisture is a sure way for mold, mildew and smells.

Must let it dry or mildew will grow to be sure. As a former Scoutmaster for 7 years, each Scout was responsible for taking their tents home to dry after a camp out. There were a few times that a Scout had to reimburse the troop for tents that were folded while wet and ruined.
