I would think that clamping something to ur canvas tent would do more harm than standing on it with socks.

are you familiar with the way basic or older PUGs are attached?
they've used clamps for them, way before the high wind ones were developed.
you can see the clamp style on their website.

I don't have the basics. Nor do I have the old stlye. I have the super high wind ones and a 2015 trailer. I am very happy with the set up. What I am asking is if u said standing on the canvas with socks on and the tent end down is damaging to it, then how can clamping something to it not be damaging either.

I have the Roo with canvas attached to the bunk doors. My pugs have the Velcro option. I mounted the self stick Velcro hook portion the full width of the inside of the bunk opening. I drop open the bunk. I use a step stool to attach about 5" worth of the pug to one side. Then go to the opposite side and pull it taught and Velcro it. The middle will pretty much follow suit and attach itself. I use a broom handle to press in place if needed. Then the DW puts the props up from the inside. Then I bungee the sides. No need to climb on the bunk ends or clamp the edges.

you were the one that mentioned socks, i never did.
i simply replied to Summer2go's question where she mentioned climbing on the tent ends.

because the newer tent ends, like yours, are pre-attached, you can't open the doors with out the canvas being pulled all the way out. of course, the tops aren't up but i was comparing my canvas where there's no worry about putting pressure on the tent-trailer attachment areas.

i don't think you get how the basic PUGs are attached. they've been using clips, like office binder clips but with plastic/rubber grips.
they go on the PUG but attach the PUG to the tent seam.
like i said, you should look at the pics at PUG's site:

Thanks! I have a 2016 Roo with tents attached, and that is why I asked. I hear so much about tent ends leaking, I didn't want to take a chance. I also have a 183 model with 3 bunks, so everything is x3. I bought my blankets last winter to construct my own gizmos in the next weeks. The blankets fit perfectly on the bunks if I install the Velcro inside the door edge. It is a very do-able project. I need to figure out how I want to sew the casings for cords, and how to fasten them. The companion project is inserts for the windows. 2016 Roos have cotton canvas windows which I don't like, so I will figure out reflective inserts to protect and reflect. The birdies already got one canvas window right through the screen!

leaking window section on tent.

Hi, not trying to hijack, but am new, I got something on the window enclosure of my tent end in my 2015 Shamrock, and it's no longer keeping out water. It is about a 3 in x 3 in circle. I am wondering if anyone has a product that they can recommend to use to re-seal the fabric. I was told by dealer to use CRC a silicone based product. This did not work, so I am assuming the windows are an acrylic canvas and not cotton canvas, but can't find the info on the fabric anywhere. I can see that there is vinyl but the window coverings are different. any info is helpful. thanks.

You might try one of the Scotchguard products, or maybe tent seam sealer. What was on the canvas that compromised the water proofing?

hydrogen peroxide... I was trying to put it on my foot and my 2 year old slammed into me and it got on the tent. was a very small amount, and now is a very large spot.

makers of the tents reccomended scotchguard as well this morning. Just nervous to put anything on it after that. I have never seen this happen to fabric from peroxide before.
