Our blackwolf turbo 300 tent has a couple of small holes in the floor (PVC). What is the best way to repair it?

Buy some TearAid from a Kitesurfing shop or from EBay

It is strong, tough and flexible enough to put on the down side of the floor. Then go and buy a 3x6 shade cloth from a camping shop. We place one under our turbo tent and the excess provides a floor under the annexe section. It prevents contact with small stones and nuts that cause the small holes.

PVC is easily glued with MEK based glue. Plumbers PVC pipe glue.
Be sure to prepare it well with the solvent cleaner first.

Leanne,

I have had the same problem with my turbo tent. I went to an uphoslterer and got a small offcut of silver coloured pvc, I've then cut 10 cent sized pieces from this as required and used contact cement to glue them on.

Thank you to all the replies. We have now bought some clear awning repair tape and hope that will do the job.
