You've already done the most important things, but if you want to take your tent on vacation safely and comfortably next year, give it a good tune-up in autumn. During your daily use in the summer vacation, you were able to spot any defects. Autumn is the time to have small repairs done, so you can bring your tent on vacation in tip top condition the following year. Think of parts that need replacing, such as zippers or a broken tent pole. Ask theย workshopย about the possibilities. That way, you can enjoy your next holiday without a worry in the world! For more information, check out ourย Service & Maintenance Tips.

If your tent shows signs of leakage, don't start treating the entire canvas with a waterproofing agent right away. Treating the spots where there is leakage will suffice. You see, the cotton of which the tent canvas is made is woven to be breathable. If you treat the entire tent canvas with a waterproofing agent, it will lose its breathable properties. The Karsten Tents workshop is happy to recommend a treatment method and the right waterproofing agent.
