I am under instruction from The Driver that I have to hose down the canvas on the camper and let it completely dry out – four times… This is called ‘seasoning’. Apparently this helps the stitching to ‘swell’ and make the joins in the canvas watertight. Luckily it will be sunny for the next few days and so a-hosing I will go.
For the record, the new 3-way fridge runs a treat on gas and no longer smells. It has been merrily chilling out for three days now.
The Dog came inside the camper for a look and promptly jumped straight up on the ‘lounge’ seat. He saw no issue with this and appeared to claim the camper as his own. Perhaps he thinks it’s a giant kennel?
