Hello! I'm late to the camper party, having roughed it for a long time in tents of varying 'luxury'. I recently was given a 1986 Jayco Jay King 8 - 12 foot PUP who was in need of some TLC. The interior is beautiful medium wood vaneer with awful yellow linoleum as was the style. The inside is spotless in terms of damage or wear and tear. The roof, however. It's had a slow leak and rotted one fist-sized spot on the canvas. I thought okay, let's replace the canvas. I can repair the roof, and we'll be good. Then my foolish self decided to go on the road. Everything went great! Drove to local campground, no reservations. On the way home, the warped and rotted wood I didn't realise was so weak in the roof let the latches wiggle free and WOOP up came the roof at 65mph. No injury, no damage except to my pet project. So now 'Belle' is in the driveway with a tarp while I gather supplies for a rebuild. The canvas is FUBAR and has been scrapped (bear creek canvas is awaiting my order lol), the lift system is pending a replacement and the roof while whole is damaged with a few small punctures in the aluminum skin. No aluminum lost and somehow all the trim is intact. So I'll be sharing my project for my 6 million dollar camper - rebuilt to be stronger, waterproof and far more fancy than ever intended!
