Howdy and Welcome to Irv2.
I don't know how I missed your post, but I am sorry I did. Our first pop up was canvas and I want to tell you we lived in Alaska and if it rained it took a long time to dry and it even got the beds damp when we packed it up. When we got the 99 bayside it had the sunbrella and it was great it didn't take long to dry, and like stated above if you can just raise it a bit and open it it will dry in your garage easy.
I would take the sunbrella it might cost more but if you take care of it it will last.
Have fun and stop by often.
ave you checked out the Camping group in you area to see what they have planned?
