    After buying our 86' shenandoah and setting it up in the back yard I've decided the canvas it too bad just to patch the holes so I'm redoing it all my self.....(what am I getting into)....we also decided to update the interior and take out the dirty carpet inside.
    So we have been working off and on in between all the rain getting work done. Here's the before pictures (not very good cause I forgot to take many) and I'll keep the after picture coming as it goes along.

    Could you keep us posted on what you do, what works, and what doesn't for those of us remodeling as well? I have been scouring the site for advice.

    Okayy got some fabric work done . First I tried a spray adhesive and to sew the fabric. But that didn't work so well. My sewing machine is just not cut out for that thick of fabric....so my solution was a iron on rug/canvas binding. It's working great ! Seems to be supper strong hold but is still flexible enough to fold down with ease !
    This picture is basically what all the fabric looks like some old shoddy patching from previous owner , and the what's left of the original is practically see through with many rips.

    This is one completed window I did the front and back just to be sure the holes would stay fixed .

    So far it's turning out great !

    When you remove the canvas is it all one piece or many pieces velcroed together? [LOL] O.K. obviously velcroed is not a word. Don't know how else to say it.

    Okayy so still chugging along on the canvas, About two more pieces to go. But I needed a break, so I went ahead and reapholstered the torn seat cusions. Did them in a vinyl and the back cusion will be vinyl and this awesome birch tree fabric !

    Lookin' good. I have one window that's pulled away with the zipper. We just use duct tape since the support bar sits outside of it, with the cover velcroed over. But I might want to consider this.

    ^^^^If that is a bench that lifts to access storage under it, then the bars may be to hold the bench in a vertical position so you can load and unload things!
