Even though a camper canvas is quite long lasting and durable, due to constant exposure to the elements it is bound to start wearing out after some time and therefore need some changing. It is worth mentioning that for pop up campers, the best and most accurate way of getting replacement canvas is by buying the canvas based on the model that you have. Most dealers who handle canvas replacements also tend to sell their canvases based on the model rather than on measurements. Some shops may even request you to hand in the old canvas so that they can get the dimensions and necessary patterns.
It is important to therefore take cognizance of the pattern on the canvas, the color as well as the finishing. To give your pop up camper a complete new look, try and get a different color from the one you are currently using.
Replacing the old camper canvas is not difficult, it is very similar to hanging a set of curtains: just make sure there is an extra hand to help you through the process. Simply remove all the fasteners along the roof and the body, then slowly pull off the old canvas, this is bound to take you around two hours. To install a new canvas, simply reverse the procedure: place the canvas on the frame, and use the fasteners to hold it into place: start from the corners or edges so as to make it a tad easier.
