New Owner

Woohoo! After looking for a year I pulled the trigger on a Trails West. I must admit, I liked all the Fiberglass RVs I considered, but for some reason this model kept calling to me. She needs work, but I am happily buying supplies. The top is missing so I will need to build my own. I could really use some close up pictures from other pop-up owners so I can get some good ideas.

I'm so happy

Congratulations Bill. I'm no help on the top, but I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

Congratulations Bill. Love the one you're with! If you wanted to, and didn't need to park it in a garage and didn't want the bother of tracking down the mechanism to lift the top... you could always make it into a Trails West/Havasu hybrid!

Welcome to the Pop-Up world. Sportsmobile is still in business and has a number of different tops and top lift mechanisms. They may still have some older parts around as well that will work for your TrailsWest. Here is their website: Sportsmobile Custom Camper Vans - Your Home Away From Home
