    We are looking into buying a 2000 Palomino Mustang 1649 my concern is canvas I do not want to get wet , we will be first timers and no idea someone mentioned to seal canvas to prevent water coming in, how does that work and what should I use? And what kind of canvas it is ? Thank you in advance from Massachusetts

    Generally, if there are no stains on the tenting, you don't have leaks. Some people will seal the seams with tent sealer. You need to know the type of material used for the tenting. It's not all canvas. Welcome from Oklahoma.

    As a rule the "canvas" will not leak. But you could treat it if you are worried. Your tenting should be vinyl. Heres a link to the sales brochure.2000.TentCamperBrochure.pdf
