Hi all you happy Campers. As my wife and I are permanent caravanners, our tent has become somewhat faded, shabby and has lost its water proofing thus leaks in heavy rain. We are wondering if someone out there has a full tent(in very good conditio) for a 2003 Gypsey Romany which they would be prepared to part with. You can contact me on my email ashdekock@gmail.com. Take care and have a happy festive season.

Hi George. We are presently standing at Marlon Caravan Park on KZN south coast. This is our first time here and I must say it's really a beautiful park - so green and lush. The owners are really great too.

I take it that the sides of the tent is fine and that its mainly the roof that needs attention.

If you do not get a tent from someone  I would suggest you re-seal the roof with Nu-proof  or something similar.

If I look at the model of your caravan then it means that you have a tent roof which is made of the new type material and not the old canvas.  I am of opinion that the roof only leaks on the seams and the stitching.  That is if the roof has not deteriorated to such an extend that the plastic type material is worn completely.

If its only the seams and stitching you just need to paint the Nu-proof all along them while the roof is hanging on the side of your caravan. Allow for the sun to bake the roof hot after sealing so that the sealing agent can go into the yarn properly.

Rubbing the stitching with a white candle will also help in an emergency.

Leon thanks for your reply. The tent is of the old heavy canvas material. I did reseal it with Nuseal in October last year. We also repainted the inside of the tent roof with Canvas Revive paint in May of this year. We use a silver sheet over the tent with three storm straps and I suspect after standing at Willows in PE for 4 months of wind and 3 at Rocky Bay. The straps were causing to chave against the canvas and this wore the waterproofing off.

Ek sien dit dat George nie 'n tent het om aan  ash te verkoop nie maar daar is dalk iemand anders. SA is groot.
