Am looking for a good seam sealant for use on polycanvas (camper trailer roof).
Mate suggested Stormsure but it only seems to come in little tubes, and is expensive.
I need to do a long seam so need something that comes in a decent sized tube. Would something like Selleys All Clear work?
Thanks in advance for suggetions.

If it's worn canvas there are products available like dynaproof.

I have used bee's wax on our camper seams and swag seams, have not had any issues with moisture or water entering. Bees wax comes in a stick form and you rub it on the seams. If your looking for sealing all of the roof Dyna Proof is a good option, we have used this product on the camper and swags works well even with heavy weather hasn't leaked, read the instructions first on what material you can use it on. Good luck.

Thanks - not looking to reproof. Just something to seal seams effectively. Might try the beeswax idea.

Is the material actually canvas or a poly material. If it's canvas and new, then you can help the sealing by going through a couple of cycles of wetting and drying. I did this on ours by setting it up in the sun, wetting down the roof and walls with a hose and then letting it bake dry. Did this a couple of times. It helps by going through a swelling and shrinking cycle. It's best to do this before applying any sealants. I use a wax candle for seam sealing on my canvas campertrailer.
