A Hussarde requires very little maintenance. Simply make sure that the canvas is dry when storing it for a long time, and from time to time lubricate the locks. Re-waterproof the fabric every 2 to 3 years with a water repellent spray. A Hussarde tent is designed to stay outside all year round, on your vehicle, whatever the weather conditions. The ABS / PMMA shell does not change colour in the sun and retains its anti-impact properties for many years.
