I did something similar to the door and a window of an old canvas tent that I use as an ice fishing hut. It has held up for many years. Just make sure you fold (or roll) the tent carefully to try not to fold where the vinyl is.

Hi John,
thanks for the tip.

for packing, i was thinking of rolling vinyl
separately. probably good idea to fire stove up
as well to make vinyl easier to work with.

That sounds like a good idea. The vinyl fogs up when we've got a stove going and brew up some coffee, tea or soup, but still very handy for a quick wipe & glance out the window to see if the flag is up on our tip-ups outside!
