Original Color of Campster Pop-Up

Hi Out Theres:

Does anyone happen to know the original color of the 1970 Trailswest Campster Pop-Up fabric? I'm steeling myself to fabricate a replacement pop-up, and I was told that the red ripstop one that was on it when I bought it, in September, 2013, was not the original.

Thanks for the help!

I think the original fabric was Yellow. I have seen several that had yellow fabric.

Campster top

We have the original top material from our Campster-it is the dark yellow color with black material around the windows. It is all made from a material backed vinyl type material.
Ours was in bad shape so we replaced it.
We used velcro instead of staples to hold it in place.

Yes, yellow, same as the original VW bus poptop (the one that went all the way up.) Kind of an ugly mustard yellow. Some of the VW bus parts places sell a fabric that matches the original if you want to restore it.
