Check out the thread "Canvas Replacement on Pop-top". I have tried to update what I have been doing. I had to repair the lift mechanism as well.

I have done the sewing myself. The canvas that was on my trailer had four screen windows in it and I decided to only do two. They are a pain to sew. I also am using waterproof rip-stop nylon. The top part of the 'canvas' will be attached using velcro instead of the original staples. The bottom part will be attached to the frame using staples and some molding.

All I have left to do is the cover for the two screen windows.

Hope this helps.

I was working on the replacement 'canvas' this afternoon in the rain and it is almost finished. Now, on to the Coleman gas light and the stove top.

Again, Thanks!
My stove works fine but I gave up on the Coleman gas light as I was told it was dangerous. Mine pulsed when turned on. I have thought of replacing it with another gas light, though, as I like the idea of having one.
