This is year #4 with our pup, and up until last weekend we've been fortunate and almost always were able to tear down in decent weather. A couple times things were damp and I toweled off and set up for an hour or so once we got back home just to make sure things were dry. But Saturday into Sunday it rained all night. It rained all morning, and we cooked breakfast under the awning and crammed our family plus another into our camper to eat. I put the camper away soaking wet, and hoped the weather would change. It basically rained constantly until noon today. Finally with some sunny weather, I got home from work, raised up the camper, set it up, and it was still dripping wet. But everything was just fine. I have it up right now to make sure it's good and dry, plus I did a deep cleaning as long as I had it up and home (we store it off-site. Even though the tenting was soaked, the beds were very dry. I attribute the fact that Palomino keeps the bunk end tenting permanently attached to the bed slides... any water just stays right on top. Very good design. So, it appears that you can indeed store the camper wet for a few days with no ill effects.
