    I just got a Jayco Eagle 1995 pop up camper as my first time camper. I got it for $650 dollars . The roof looks bended toward the center . Does anyone have any idea how much it will cost to replace the roof ? What materials they use in the replacement ? What import at details should I have into account ?

    Congrats on your new to you camper. If your looking to do your own Roof rebuild check out the roof section of this forum as there are tons of info and steps recorded by others in your shoes. I’m afraid if your looking to see if an RV shop would help you, I’m afraid they probably won’t touch it. Have you been able to open the camper to see what kind of shape the interior is in? If water penetrated that roof and got inside, you may have other problems as well.

    Red flags every where. Center roof patch job, busted AC cover, missing light, over spray, missing cord cover (mouse hole), sagging roof, roof trim dropping, etc. You're not even inside yet. It's a project.

    Do you think it is worth to pay $600 for the replacement of the new roof? I have no time to take care of that and I do not know how to do it. The interior does not look compromised all cables worked perfectly, the mattress and seat cushions are in a perfect state. It is the roof and canvas my principal concern. Also, I do not want to get an RV camper that goes beyond my car's towing capacity that is 1600 pounds. So I'm willing to invest some money as long as I do not have to buy a new car. I'm thinking that I will be investing around 2000 -2500 in it. So the total cost will be around $3000. In your opinion, it is worth the inversion?

    The issue your going to run in is finding a replacement roof especially If you can’t do it yourself. Unless you managed to come accross something somewhere that I haven’t Or you have friends who are willing to work for beer so all you need to buy is materials. If your canvas needs to be fully replaced that may cost you $1000 alone. Whether or not it’s worth it, is your decision ultimately, but if I were you to stick to your budget and do all the research you can before you start the project. In my opinion though especially if your willing to spend $3000 is to sell this and wait another year or so. Camper prices should be back down to reasonable again. Before Covid caused this camper craze, I bought my new to me camper for $3500 During winter and the only thing I needed to get replaced was the entire wheel assembly and new tires. It had other problems but it was Essentially camp ready (Well if it wasn’t so cold).
