Coming apart at the seam

I have a 2017 Roo 233s. In the corner of the back bunk, the canvas is coming apart at the seam. I can take it to my dealer for warranty fix but if the fix is cheap I'll do it myself instead of spending money in gas. Click image for larger version

Any idea how to fix this?

I would take it to the dealer as it looks like the vinylized canvas is torn, not the thread.

Coming apart at the seam

Mine, a 2016 183, came out at the outside track, where I used silicone and small screws through the track. That is a "seam" by the door hinge with no track. The tent is sewn to the material that goes across the hinge, 2 different pieces of fabric. The only way to fix that and stop it from growing is to get someone who can sew it up. That's a warranty/ dealer issue.

You might find some of the new adhesive tapes with industrial strength adhesive that will hold it together til you get it really fixed. If you are like me, I tried to get dealer type repairs done in the off season, so I could camp as long as I could.
