everyone swears by bearcreek, there is another one ppl on here like but I forgot the name,  many say it's better than original- costs range between $700- $1200 but most are right around $800-$900.

on some campers the bunk ends zip to the main section- if so- u can get just the bunkends for around $250 or so

I just got finished cutting 14 patches for my pup's vinyl('95 Stony Creek). The largest being 6"x7". Finances are keeping us from buying a replacement at this time so we turned it into a family art project, everyone got to color the patches prior to the install even '08 DD got in on the action! I hope they hold! Will be doing a field test for 8 days in a couple of weeks.(Our maiden voyage in our NTU pup).

If you can afford it I would just replace the canvas.

Several places have gotten good reviews for replacements.

Used Bear Creek Canvas for a 1983 Palomino , it was around the $850 range, but it fit like a glove, they do a great job.

I replaced my canvas on my 1994 Jayco with one from RVworkshop,com It cost me around $810. They sold me a factory replacement and the quality is awesome. I would highly recommend them. Then new canvas eliminates the bungee cords for the bunkends with velcro. Best way to go.

I have a Jayco 1406 circa 1992 that I got last year.  I has a simular issue, not due to mice but rather rotting from poor maintenance.  I had a lot of holes.  I started patching last year.  The problem I ran into was that the surrounding canvas was weakend also to the sewn on patches left large holes from the needle.  Not very watertight.

I went to my local Jayco dealer and bought a factory replacement from them.  It was the same price as the online guys (who by the way buy from the same factory LOL).  I stripped off the old canvas myself and payed the dealer for a couple hours to have them install it.  Well worth the trouble if you don't know what your doing or don't have good help.

Our original canvas disintegrated, and we got new tenting this year, from Canvas Replacements. It was in the winter, so it didn't take long to get it, and it is far better than the original.

If I had canvas in good shape and just a few patches, I'd do that, in fact we did for a few years. However, you'll need to make the final decision as to what your pocketbook will handle, and just how much fixing you want to do. [Knowing mice have been in the canvas would be a big problem for me, but then, we live in an area of the country where they can be Hanta virus, etc. carriers.]

Thanks for all the input I have someone experience in heavy duty sewing looking at it to see if they can patch the holes so I can use it this year  I will probably go for the full replacement next year

if it's truly canvas, and not vinyl or some combination there of, get some tear-mender at your local tractor supply company store. 7 bucks a bottle for the small one, it goes a LONG ways and will bond canvas to canvas like magic. It's waterproof, rubs off like elmers glue if you get it on your hands and has strength to hold in about 20 seconds.(I usually wait longer).
I've touched up a rip or two on the snaps that hold our canvas to the support poles (High tension areas) and it's held very well. Suprisingly well if you ask me.
I also glued in all new screens with it, and then glued new tarp repair tape over it. So far it's all holding up great, not a stitch sewn.

Good Luck!

If you decide that you'll want to replace it for next year, check with the replacement places. With Canvas Replacements, there was a bit of savings in the winter months, and the new canvas arrived very fast.

Friends of ours just replaced the canvas on their 97 Coleman with Bear Creek Canvas and they love it! The fit was fantastic.
