Leaking Hannibal Rooftent :(
I see on another thread people debating the pros and cons of rooftents. Well I'm back from a very rainy week in Ireland and our tent leaked so much we had to abandon it for a ground tent. It is a Hannibal rooftent and the problem seems to be mainly around the horizontal poles across the top that support the whole thing.
The central pole was fine, but the other two seems to make contact with the outer sheet in the wind, and these 'wicked' the water into the tent, causing a non stop dripping effect.
Has anyone else experienced this, and got any ideas how to fix this problem?
Could it be that it was badly set up? We could not see any issues with the set up, but it seemed that the tension on the outer sheet was not enough.
Also, anyone got any tips on how to dry out a rooftent on the road??
Thanks for any ideas...
I'm still not quite dry!
