 I bought this about three months ago and completely renovated it. Took all the canvas off washed both sides, retreated it with 303 products. My wife shows a whole new color scheme inside and we painted it and changed all the fabrics. We have a brand-new trailer.  Love to Popup.

waterproofing question
« on: May 17, 2013, 10:07:13 PM »
I'm new to this pop up camping have been tent camping my whole life. Got a great deal on a 2000 coleman westlake and the wife and I couldn't pass it up. My ? Is I gave it a good cleaning and am going to waterproof it now, do I spray the inside too or just the outside?

I would say the outside only, it shouldn't leak into the inside if you spray it on the outside.

I used 303 Fabric Guard Water Repellant on the outside. But that includes unzipping the windows, laying them flat on the beds and treating them. Did not use on the plastic windows on the sides. I also used Coleman Seam Sealer on all seams outside only. It has held up great during some hard showers. I also used 303 Aerospace Protectant on the outside canvas to keep it conditioned. Not sure if all that is necessary but has worked well for me.

Outside and in fact, Coleman/Fleetwood manuals say to only use 303 Aerospace Protectant to restore the water-proofness of the fabrics.
