Yes! The whole trip back was either rain or snow. Setting it up is a non-issue, it's done in about 90 seconds and your bed is protected from any driving rain while raising because the panels cover the bed. We did notice some bugs on the inside of parts of the side panels after driving all day, but that's abnormal and Bryan is sending us new weather stripping. We have had no issues with water in the front at all, but we've only taken it on one trip so not sure if it could be a problem in the future. Let us know if you have any other questions!Very nice setup. Have you set the camper up during a storm yet? That has been one of my biggest concerns about an Alaskan... that and the seemingly significant potential for leaks around the front while driving during a rainstorm.
