canvas over beds

Has anyone had trouble with the corners where the canvas is attached at the bottom. [:(] It seems that it has shrunk and leaves an opening at each corner. When it rains it comes in and gets the beds wet. Is there any way to keep the corners closed up? thanks. [;)]

Have you considered adding valcro? Canvas and vinyl will shrink over the years so adjustments or new canvases will need to be made.

If your attachment is the bungee type, you can get bungee road at the hardware store, get a longer length.

Having a hard time visualizing this. Is it the inside or outside corners? A pic would be very helpful.

As mentioned, tenting does shrink over time. But it shouldn't be too difficult to come up with a DIY fix.

Had this on a previous pup. We just stuffed facecloths down there to keep the bugs out.
