New solution for bunk-end leaks?

Spill a lot? NeverWet's ready to coat your gear | Crave - CNET

I'm going to look for it today. My first thought was that I've gotta coat my bunk-ends with this. My second thought was that I've gotta coat my whole trailer with this! If water can't stick to it, it can't leak through it, right?

What do y'all think?

I see you beat me to asking that question - I definitely want to try it out on my canvas pop-outs, so long as someone with more knowledge of the current waterproofing solution doesn't think it would be counterproductive.

Spraying it on the awning and maybe even on the vinyl roof could keep hard water from sticking and keep it clean longer... this stuff would keep outside electronics safe as well.

I was just looking at the stuff on cnet. I was considering the bunk ends but I think I'll wait a little bit for the technology to become solid and let a few other people try it out.
It looks like a great idea...

My son got Never Wet. He sprayed a small piece of cardboard. It works EXACTLY as advertised. He then sprayed a t-shirt, and again, it did exactly what you see in the videos.

The only thing was there was a milky white 'residue' on both items when he was done. I dont know if he sprayed it on too thick or what, but he got his $20 worth of fun putting it on things. I did find myself having to tell him that the cats neither require, nor would appreciate waterproofing.

i'm a member of 6 different Hybrid forums and i've never seen anyone actually post that they used it for a hybrid's canvas tent end.

i think you should try yours out first, before worrying about putting something on that's untested for this kind of application.
and there doesn't seem to be any indication that it can penetrate the canvas's vinyl coating.

It might work to seal the seams in the canvas but it won't prevent leaks past the outer rubber seals if that's what is causing your leak. Leaking seams in the canvas is much more rare than leaks through the seals.

Very True!!
and condensation is also much more common, than leaking seams.

I have had my ROO 233s since February and I have never had it NOT leak ... the older models must be higher quality ... would be interested to see if this product is the answer.
