We have just come back from a week in the berg and had to pack up a damp tent and tent trailer.

The weather prediction here in Durban is about a week of overcast rainy weather so I have a problem drying the canvas this week.

How long can canvas stay damp without causing mould, smelling mufty and generally damaging the canvas?

Good Morning,

I would definitely not leave it folded in a bag for more than two days.

If possible, open them up on a washing line. They are wet in any case. They must be aired properly to prevent mould.

Gooi hulle in die garage oop en laat staan die kar buite.

Maak die deur oop dat hulle lug kry.

 

Al weer oppad iewers heen.

Lucky the weather prediction was wrong. We had a day of sun shine today and all the canvas dried.

It depends on the weather temperature. If you pack up in the rain and travel home in cold weather it should not be a big problem. But if it is hot, well, I would suggest NOT folding the canvas up, rather just bundle it up and place it in the caravan over blankets or towels or something else to cover the floor.

Personally, I think it stupid to get home with a wet tent  irrespective of weather.

Open it out, on the lawn, paving or any other available space, even if it is raining. If possible, pitch the tent. Sooner or later, weather will improve Atleat then the negative processes will be reduced.
