If there is moisture trapped in the canvas material for a length of time, mold and mildew may start to form. If mold starts to form it can stain the canvas and produce foul odors. This does not make for a pleasant camping experience! In order to handle mold properly, follow these steps:

1. Open the tent up and brush the affected area with a hard bristled brush to get and loose dirt off.

2. Using the same lysol solution discussed above (1 cup lysol to 1 gallon water), wash the canvas using a sponge and the bristled brush.

3. Rinse the tent off with a solution (1 cup lemon juice, 1 cup sea salt, 1 gallon hot water).

4. Once the lysol solution has been properly washed out, let the tent air dry for several hours in order to prevent future mold from forming.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The camper trailer tent must be completely dry before storage!

If you want to be super cautious and plan on spending a lot of time in the rain, you might consider the following:

After initial set-up, spray the tent with water and allow it to dry completely. This “seasons” the canvas. The water causes the canvas to swell slightly, closing the needle holes where the canvas was stitched. The most effective way to do this is to have the tent out in its first good rain. This process is only required once, but can be repeated as many times as you would like.
