Bunk end material soft shell?

Clarify material of hybrid bunk ends. 2011 palimino stampede 195. Says soft shell. Looking to use canvak on bunk ends for water proofing. Says not to apply to vinyl or synthetic materials. Is it canvas, vinyl or synthetic? Thanks in advance.

From I've learned over the 10 years I've owned my Roo, it's vinylized canvas.

Not sure why you want to waterproof it, they don't need it.
unless you are talking about the tent windows which aren't vinylized.

Should be a manufacter tag along one of the tent seams. Contact them.
Roo/Shamrock tent ends are made by TJ Snuggles in Indiana.

Why do you think they need waterproofing?

Got a drip or 2 that came through during rain storm. Other bump dry as bone. Wet to touch. I know you will get condensation, but feel it was leaking threw.

Are you sure that it wasn't tent seams leaking or some tiny holes in the canvas.
These are common causes, not leaking through intact vinylized canvas.

I think water pooled in one section as not taught. Just tring to do preventive maintenance. Since it is vinyl I will leave it alone. Thanks

Stampede 21 2001,The bunk have a few pin hole and vinyl discoloration and leak and I wonder if I was to use a white rubber paint that I use to apply to my marine rubber fender and if it would stick to that tent material??
Or you might have a better solution!
Cannot afford $1000.to replace the bunk tent!!!
Thank you

Well, the canvas is vinyl coated, not rubber.
Never heard of anyone using such a paint on the tent ends, in 12 years of being on various Hybrid forums.

Have you checked with a boat canvas repair shop?
Pretty similar materials and might be a cheaper repair.

About all you can really do at this point is apply a band aid.....or purchase new canvas. Seeing that it's a 2001, if you are getting pinholes in the vinyl coated canvas that's most likely due to age and effects of UV radiation from the sun. That is unless the pinholes are from someone poking it with a piece or wire or something. Put a piece of eternabond over it maybe? Any type of coating will not work. It may for a short while but I doubt it.

If the canvas is just worn out and does have the vinyl coating deteriorating from exposure it's only going to get worse.

You can make your own Gizmos, with the 5x7 Sportsmen/All-Weather solar blankets that cost around $15.
Many places sell them.
Cabelas, REI, Bass Pro, Campmor and many online vendors.

Just Google "Sportsmen or All-weather" blanket.
Since they are a standard 5x7 size, you to order 3 and cut one to sew onto another one, to cover the front tent end.
All hybrid front tent ends are longer than the rear ones because of the trailer's sloping front wall.
