Rain storms and Bunk Ends

How's this for a rainstorm in a Roo? I'm very happy to say that we didn't have a single leak in the bunk ends during this deluge. Camped this week at Ebys Pines in Bristol Indiana.

Thanks all. Noticed there were new folks to the forum, some asking about the leaks. Just wanted to share.

The standing water drained away almost as quickly as it came. We still had a campfire last night and other than a lot pine needles stacked up in places you wouldn't know any rain had pooled at that site.

Nice Pics. We had a big rainstorm last weekend when we camped and there were no leaks. The rain ran right off the canvass and my popup gizmos stayed on great! Regarding leaks, I was getting then when the bunk doors were closed. I think it was because of the seals not completely meeting and leaving a gap for water to get in. see pic.
