    Folks got out of camping a few years back and they gave me the family PU. She needs some love. Multiple large holes in screens and a couple holes in the canvas. Will also need new mattresses.

    Your QWEST looks pretty decent otherwise so considering you paid nothing for it you might consider replacing the tenting with a new set from Bear Creek Canvas or Canvas Replacements. :)

    I would second the replacement of the tenting. If the other systems are in good shape, you would have a great camper for years to come.

    If everything's else works out this year I might invest in new canvas for next season.

    Congrats on the new unit! Looks like a manageable project compared to some I've seen.

    Congrats. I inherited my family’s Jayco popup when the parents decided to upgrade to a TT. Sadly after owning it for 5 years the lift system broke and I decided to upgrade. It gave me a great step into popup camping and over the years I came to appreciate some things and hate others. I hope you have many years with yours once you get it fixed up.
