    Hi folks, I'll get to it. My wife and I just put 2k down till Monday when I pay the balance and bring it home. I need to replace or repair the three forward screens.
    Question: does anyone have any recommendations on a reputable repair shop in NorCal? Thanks for any help at all.✌ 20200312_165301.jpg 20200312_165337.jpg

    Depending on how big the holes you can just go buy a screen patch kit. If the holes are too big and you don’t want real tacky the only thing I can think of is perhaps a marine awning place. You know a place that fix canopies for boats. Good luck.

    Any upholstery shop that does custom boat and car covers should be able to do them.

    I suggest you post some pictures of the screen damage after you bring it home so that more specific answers can be generated.

    I fixed my screens by sewing a new screen on to the old screen. I just used a U shaped needle and sewed a new screen all around the edges of the old screen and then cut out the old screen. I am not good at sewing but it came out nice. Cost about $8.00 per screen.

    No, and sadly I didn't ask. I'm assuming the kids. 15 holes in the front alone I believe. How much is something like this is to fix at a service center, any idea - guessing? I won't quote ya. Everyone? Thank you Mr Fish, or do I call you Bike?(sorry, it's funny)

    No crickets, just really busy. (Okay, I was watching TV.)

    It really doesn't matter how the holes got there, I was just curious.

    I also have no clue how to properly fix it or on the cost to repair. Sorry, I'm not any help on this, but by first thought would be to cut out as much as I could and then sew in some fresh screen. But that may not look much better than the multiple holes.

    My dad was Mr. Fish so you can call me Bike. ;) Kidding. I have been called a lot worse here on the Portal after a couple of disagreements!

    I wouldnt do that. I appreciate your reply though. Just seems like all the other campers turned in early lol. But of course I'm actually interested myself, bet I'll be sure to get the scoop. Thanks
