I had one bunk end replaced, no leaks or seepage on that side. On the older side the side widows would absorb water and get damp. I treated them with a waterproofing product from Camping World (Protectant 303?), and have had not further issues.

needing bunk end sides for my 276 (they were simply missing), I contacted TJ Snuggles, who makes them for Forest River. They advised me to spray water on them to swell the fibers and spread bees wax on the seams.

I am going to do the same thing. I am a bit disappointed in that Rockwood did not continue to use the same product for all the tenting. I tested the bunk flaps and they do not leak, but I will still be treating them just in case. I DO NOT WANT TO GET WET!

Like Mr. Dan, I too had a 95 Coleman, never had a leak or condensation issue. We used it alot for 10 yrs and never had a problem. I even scrubbed the outside with a scrub brush (gently) and rinsed it with hose a couple times , no leaks.

Those canvas panels caught my eye too as we've been playing with our 2514G (just like exploreco has).

I'm thinking about trying to seam seal/tape the bottom of those canvas sections and then waterproof them. Anyone have any thoughts on that?

Something like this:

or

https://www.mcnett.com/gearaid/blog/tent-seam-sealing

Kinda concerned about the sealer sticking. Even though I've used it on every tent I've ever had and have had no issues. I usually apply it where the tape (pre-applied on my good tents) meets the tent itself. Sorta used to seal the tape to the tent. If that makes sense.
