I used a brand new caravan classic tent (top of their line, $350.00) ez up style, at my first fair this past weekend. It rained the first day and the tent leaked at the seams, eventually the whole top became wet to the touch. I had to move all of my art off the walls into the center.
Questions for you all...
1) Are there any 10 x 10 art fair tents in the $200 to $400 range that will NOT leak?
2) Is there a way to waterproof the tent I have (effectively) at this point? Will seam sealer and a waterproofing spray help at all? Have any of you done this?
3) ecanopy, from whom I purchased, first said that the tent was not meant to be used in the rain, and would not refund it. I found some claims on their site saying that "it's great for the rain," and now they will refund.
4) Should I just get my money back and start with another tent? which one? I know that Trimlines and Light Domes are great, but am not really ready to invest that high.
Thanks and look forward to some advice.
