    Howdy

    I am the proud owner of a very old starcraft pop up. I am actually not sure of the year or model. My parents bought it when I was a child and its been passed down to me. And it is in some need of a bit of work. The mail issue is the roof lid is all rotten and warped, so that is the first project and what brings me to this forum. I've been poking around and it seems I am not the only do-it-yourselfer that wants to restore an old trailer to new modern glory.

    I look forward to to this new restoration project and gaining some insight from the forum members and potentially offering my own ideas as well.

    Welcome from Corpus Christi! Wow, I envy you guys who can restore pups. I'm terrified of spinning saws so that limits my scope of driveway practice. :)

    I just bought mine from the San Antonio area.

    Hurry up and fix it cuz there's a Rally in June!

    Welcome from a former Texas resident who lived in San Antonio and now lives in the great Pacific Northwest.

    Hola Yo'll

    First I'll say Welcome To The Pop Up World and This Site.

    Every replacement item that you need is at Lowes or a like place. The maker of every Camper
    Company all used the lowest priced items they could - to make a unit. This means what you
    need is still being sold ( always remember to think of light weight vs heavy ).

    The one main item that you need to nicely keep is The Trim and like parts.

    Harbour Freight has 25% off coupons for nail guns and tools that you may need or want to
    "make things easier".


    Rebuild To Quality - not to price

    It's not at my house yet. It's at my families ranch outside of Poth. I'm going to fetch it during spring break here in a week or so and redo the lid while there. Happy to have you come out and see it when I get it home.

    Howdy from another San Antonio resident. Good luck on your roof rebuild. Our first camper was a 1980 StarCraft StarFlyer and I had to rebuild the roof on it.
