Benefits of painting the canvas on a camper
There are many benefits to painting your camper canvas.
For starters, it will add a bit of color and personality to your vehicle without resorting to permanent paint.

Can you spray paint the canvas tent?
Yes. You can paint canvas on a tent, but we recommend using industrial-grade spray glue so that it doesn’t come off in the first use!
What kind of paint do you use on a canvas tent?
We recommend using acrylic craft paint. It’s a water-based formula that won’t run or drip, and it dries fast so you can start enjoying your new canvas tent within just minutes of painting!
Can I use a heat gun to remove wrinkles from my canvas tent?
No, you should not heat your canvas tent with a heat gun. This can damage the fabric and cause it to tear.
What size is the canvas?
The canvases are around 2′ x 4′. This means that you’ll be able to fit three rolls of each design into one standard garage space (7’x10′).
However, if you’re looking for something slightly smaller or larger than this, you can do so by purchasing additional rolls of canvas.
Can you paint a pop-up camper?
Yes, you can paint a pop-up camper! However, we recommend using industrial-grade spray glue so that it doesn’t come off on the first use.
Can you paint pop-top canvas?
Yes, you can paint pop-top canvas! If you’re not sure about the strength of your paint on a tent, we recommend ordering one roll that’s slightly larger than what you need to see how it goes.
If this test piece works out well, then it’ll be easier for you to order additional canvases in future orders!
Can You Use Flex Seal on a pop-up camper canvas?
Sadly, we do not recommend using Flex Seal on pop-up canvas. We’ve found that the acrylic paint used in this application will peel off of the tent and can cause significant damage to your car’s interior!
Can I remove my existing tent from my pop-top camper?
Yes, you may remove an old or damaged canopy without any problems.
However, it is important to note that one thing must be kept in mind when removing a tent from your pop-up camper; the canvas will be much more susceptible to tearing and damage.
Should I use regular or premium grade paint for my canvas?
We recommend using premium-grade paint as well. Premium grade paint is a professional-grade product that’s made to withstand more bending, tearing, and wear than regular acrylic craft paints.
Will my canvas tent last if it gets wet?
Yes! Even though our pop-up car top tents come with waterproof zippers for your convenience, water can still get through the fabric over time.
To prevent this from happening in the first place, we recommend only using water-based paints when painting your canvas tent.
Can I wash my pop-top camper after installation?
Yes, you can wash your canvas tent. However, please note that the paint will be more susceptible to tearing and damage when washed.
We recommend using a gentle washing machine and avoiding the use of harsh chemicals.
Can you pressure wash a pop-up camper?
Yes, you can pressure wash your pop-up car top tent. However, we recommend using gentle soap and water to clean the canvas so as not to damage the fabric.
Can you use bleach on canvas?
Yes, you can use bleach on canvas. However, we recommend using a mild bleach solution and letting the fabric air dry for 24 hours before putting it away to let any remaining moisture evaporate completely.
Can you get mold out of canvas?
Mold is common in the environment and can grow on canvas as well.
However, to minimize this risk we recommend making sure your canvas tent is protected when not being used by taking care of it properly after use.
We also provide a Guide for Cleaning Canvas that you may want to read before heading out on your next camping trip!
Are pop-up tents safe?
Pop-up tents are considered “tent trailers” or “campers” and are subject to the same federal safety standards that campers do. So, if you enjoy camping then this is a great option for your next adventure!
Will Pop-up tents last as long as traditional canvas tents?
Yes! While pop-up tent canisters may seem flimsy at first, they actually made of high-quality materials like steel tubes filled with fiberglass rods making them extremely durable.
Because of their sturdy construction, pop-up tents will last as long as any other canvas tent.
Can you paint the canvas without detaching it?
You can indeed paint the canvas without detaching it. However, please be careful when painting your tent so as to not damage or tear any of the seams by over-painting.
To remove excess paint from the fabric we recommend using a cloth dampened with mild soap and water before pressing under warm water for about 10 minutes.
Can you paint the canvas alone?
Paint jobs on canvas alone can be very tricky. To help you out, we have a quick and easy guide to Painting Canvas that will walk you through the process step-by-step!
Please note: Painted canvas is not waterproof so if you are planning to use it as a tent or camper then make sure any paint job is sealed with an additional coat of water repellent coating before using your painted canopy.
What type of glue should I use to help with the paint?
We recommend using industrial-grade spray glue for the best results in this application. We’ve found that ultra-violet exposure and high heat will cause canvases to come off after just one use!
