    Anyone have any idea where to look for the elastic or bungee that runs along the bottom of the canvas and attaches to the bottom of the bunk ends? I snapped mine camping last time and haven't had any luck finding a replacement for it.

    I used 3/16" on mine when I had to replace it because it was stretched out. I also bought the pliers so you can crimp on the clips the right way. Each diameter of bungee needs a specific clip, I think the are called hog clips. I also bought some 3/16" to make other bungees as I need them. At least it would help justify the special pliers. Just google bungee cords and a whole list will come up. You will have to order by the foot, so figure out how much you will need. Good luck.

    I found it at my local Ace Hardware, was easier/quicker than online order when I needed it. I don't recall if I went with 3/16 or 1/4 however. But it has worked out just fine regardless.
