    Bear Creek Canvas and Canvas Replacements are two in the US that people seem to use and have been happy with. You could contact them and they could let you know about shipping costs. Also you could contact any place that does canvas work and see what it would cost to custom make or even repair your canvas. Google "canvas repairs Ontario" and you find many listings. Most specialize in Marine work but should be able to help you. Being in Barrie there are probably places close to you with all the Marinas around Lake Simcoe

    lol, ive googled the heck outta canvas replacements in Canada let alone ontario and come up with diddly lol.. and RV warehouse in Cookstown is the only Jayco dealer near me. ive emailed one of the american places recommended in other threads here and im waiting to hear back.

    as for repair.... its not worth trying to patch this canvas really, two whole window screens are completely holey, one plastic has a large gash in it, one slide end is torn open, lots of duct tape on the inside on edges...but we got 'er for $700 and the frame, floor and body are great other then needing a scrubbing with TSP and re caulking all the seams for good measure :) and likely redo the gasket seal around the roof- will check out the Home Depot stuff recommended in another thread. my moms awful handy with this sort of stuff, and i like doing this stuff so i know it isnt a lost cause, i know it will be Awsome when were done fixing it up :D

    I used bear creek canvas last year on my trailer. I had to ship the old canvas to him not a big deal 62.00 for shipping. sometimes he already has a pattern and you don't have to ship yours. he did a great job took 20 minutes to put new one back on would recommend him again

    Did you contact Bear Creek Canvas or Canvas Replacements ?? I know they are in the States, but their pricing is much better..

    I have contacted both. I had a marine upholstery guy come out and look at it. He's going to give me quote later this week. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Thanks all

    Only 4 weeks? Nice. I have to wait 8-10 weeks. But I'm doing a roof rebuild in the meantime so it should go quick.
