Your camping tent is your home away from home. It’s what keeps you safe and protected; warm and dry. In order to keep your tent in great condition, it will need a little maintenance along the way, just as your real home does. Thankfully, if you choose a high quality tent like the 1965 VW Camper Van Tent, you get a durable tent that can be wiped clean in no time. With sturdy poles and zippers, you won’t find yourself stuck with much maintenance, other than these basic tips.
Lose the Shoes
The floor of the tent will survive much longer if you adopt a “no shoes” policy in your tent. The hard soles of hiking boots can damage the floor, plus just drag in a lot of dirt and debris that you don’t want to be lying your head on.
Wipe Down Stains
If you happen to notice a stain in the tent, don’t ignore that it’s there. The VW Camper Van Tent can be easily wiped down with a damp rag or towel, so give the tent a good cleaning when you get it home. Falling acorns and bird droppings are just a few of the things that will land on your tent, so removing them early on will prevent them from sticking and looking, well, gross.
Apply a Waterproofing Spray
The VW Camper Van Tent is waterproof – very waterproof – but that doesn’t mean that it won’t hurt to apply a waterproofing spray from time to time. This spray will give you that added layer of protection if you’re faced with an unexpected storm.
Keep it Stored in a Safe, Dry Place
Don’t just toss the camping tent anywhere; find a clean, dry, safe place, and make sure that it’s folded up neatly. Even if it’s not the kids getting to the tent, it could be mice, bugs or water damage that pose a threat. It’s a good thing the 1965 VW Camper Van Tent folds up small so that you can fit it virtually anywhere.
These are just a few tips for keeping your camping tent in good condition. If you invest in a quality tent, you want it to last for many years, so a little maintenance goes a long way.
