we just bought a couple of canvas spray cans from the local camping shop, these worked fine. I think its called canvas care or something , i threw the emty cans out, I have also heard you can rub wax on the affected areas, we tried a candle and it worked for a while but not as good as the spray gear.

There was a product called Birkmeyers or Berkmiers that we treated our canvas with years back, it was more than just a waterproofing compound, smelled awful for a few weeks until it aired out though.

Dan & Leah.
I waterproofed my previous Kamparoo camper & found that it increased the condensation quite a lot. Perhaps I applied too much waterproofing!!
