Do you pull in the bunk ends during storms? We did on our last trip as we had strong wind, hail, and rain blow through, but now I question if it was needed. Anyone ever had their tent ends damaged by storms?
Personally, if you know it's coming and have time to safely bring them in, I would. I have not been in that position yet, but I did have mine at the house open to air it out when we had severe storms come. I closed it up to both protect it and figured the less like a kite it was the better....
Agree on the safe timing. We were in a terrific wind storm in AL a few years ago and no time to close up safely. DH did have to chase down one PUG, but other than that we were fine. Suggest that if you don't have time to close up safely, you sleep on the sofa/dinette/floor rather than the bunkend.

We had all of our beds out during the hail storm they went through Williamsburg a few weekends ago. It was rough because it sounded like someone was throwing baseballs at the ends but everything held up thank goodness. A think we had at least some luck that weekend though.
