Hi,

I've got a centre pole tent from COI Leisure and when I pack up while it's raining, when I come to set up the tent at the next location, I find that the water has gone through the windows and there are puddles on the floor. Does anyone else have this problem with their centre pole tent?

The water probably goes through the zips,, they are not waterproof.. Michael.

Packed ours up several times in the rain, and moved on to the next campsite. Everything wet outside, just damp inside .
You should be looking at the way you are folding it up, !
There lies your answer.

The main thing is to get the tent set up early enuf the next day to dry out the inside.

You can go through the waterproofing thing, and it may still do the same .
And if you decide to water proof, try that horse blanket stuff, you can get from Feed Barns, and pet supplier stores.. and double coat the stitching.. that stuff works a treat .

Cheers
