    It’s canvas, some people report water ingress if it gets touched (capillary action). It is worth getting some kind of topper. I am waiting for my Cali to be delivered and one of the things that bothered me was if the canvas is wet and you put the roof down you’re enclosing that wet/damp. So I think a waterproof topper will be essential. There are 2 outer types:
    1. Calitopper type that fits over the whole roof/bellows
    2. Rainbow company type that fits around the canvas only
    Both have pros and cons. The Bus and Beyond bloggers, Sean & Lizzy, have a really good comparison video:

    You can get tougher footprint sheets to go under your attached groundsheet when on gravel or stones ground.
