    Was wondering if it was worth it to get a new canvas on a 2001 jayco can get the camper for $250. Buying my first popup so i'm not sure if its worth it or not. Thanks

    Most likely. It depends on the condition of the rest of the PU. I believe aftermarket canvas replacements begin at about $750 or so. I paid $2500 for a 96 Coleman Cheyenne that has only acceptable canvas.

    If a 7 year old Pup has canvas problems, I'd suspect a very careless owner...it is likely that there are more problems to uncover...check ut the floor (in all cabinets and underneath) for rot or soft spots....

    I agree with Digger. If a 2001 has bad canvas, what else is bad? Money can add up quick when it comes to repairs. I just bought a 2000 Cheyenne for $3500.00 and although it appeared in excellent condition I've still got $500.00 in it in misc. parts and such. I'd pay more for something in better condition.

    Here is a link to great prebuy information.

    Assumming everything else is good I think it would be a good deal. My 01 Jayco quest was just under 3 grand.

    Does the canvas really need replacing or are theer just some spots needeing repairs?
