Dome tents

Camping World Dome Tents have the finest water repellent treatment possible for each type of fabric. No tent however can be as waterproof as a house, car or similar solid structure. There are several common and natural causes that can lead to water in your tent.

PRE-USE – All tents should be assembled prior to travel and inspected for accuracy of parts. At this time the tent should be hosed with water to allow seam take up. When dry, repack your tent in the storage bag. Not only will this minimise any seam leakage it gives you the chance to become familiar with your new tent.

CONDENSATION – Synthetic fabrics are coated with acrylic to repel water. This coating reduces air permeability and leads to condensation similar to that, which occurs, on car windows under certain conditions. Some condensation is normal with synthetic fabrics and should not be considered as a defect.

NEEDLE HOLES – Camping World dome tents are manufactured by expert machinists and have the finest water repellent treatment. However, seepage may occur in the seams through the needle holes created in the sewing process. This is normal and can be corrected with the application of seam sealing compound available at your Camping World store.

STORAGE – Never store a wet tent as it will cause mildew, this condition is not covered by factory warranty.

Before you leave

  • Check your tent and ensure it is in top condition, that there are adequate pegs, guy ropes and all the poles are there.
  • Clean, test and light gas stoves and lamps. Check all o’rings and condition of stove hoses.
  • Air beds and camp beds should be inflated or assembled.
  • Research the destination to find out available facilities.
  • Investigate the weather before you leave, especially night-time temperatures. This way you can ensure you have appropriate bedding and clothing to stay warm.
  • Plan ahead with a camping checklist so that you don’t get stuck without the necessary equipment.
