    Safe Speed with Canvas up?-gctid352642

    In the pouring rain (no wind) with the Ali frame up and full enclosure what is a sensible speed so things don't start breaking?

    I tow mine at highway speeds with no problem, just have to make sure it is secured all around. no loose flaps.
    Boatless at this time

            My previous boat had a full camper enclosure. We ran with it up all of the time; about 6 months of the year and at an average speed up 25mph. A few times we went close to 50mph with no ill effects. I had three roofs in total, each lasting about 9 years.
