I am about to acquire a N2U late 70s original SunKamper (Made in Ontario). My Mom and I are really excited to remodel it, but keep it as vintage as possible! all original, but we need to replace the foam insides (all cushions etc.) it's been stored in a garage for the last 25 plus years, so it's in great shape but some small little campers (mice) got into it. Pics will come eventually!

I'm so glad to have found this community!

Was just given this old Pop up, said her father bought it at sears, not sure of the year though, I can't seem to find any more info on this one, either by serial # or model #, it looks like a Camel, but not sure. Any one know what this is?! it was stored inside for a long time, canvas is Mint condition. floor and beds are solid. Never seen anything like this before. Thanks!

Very nice. It does remind one of a Camel pop up. I think Sears had there own line of pop ups back in the day but I am not sure who made them for them. What are your plans for it?

A lot of great pop up history and information here; http://www.popupcamperhistory.com/

Good luck. I love the all canvas models. Just came home with this one last week. A 1964 Cox Campmaster.

This is very similar to an Apache Raven, it may have been made by the same company and re-branded. The canvas looks fantastic!

Just bought this puppy. It's in great shape! Just needs some cables on the two back corners replaced. I've bought them along with a generic manual, but I'm looking for some advice.

... Coleman colonial pop up and can't seem to close it all the way Help

MODS: You may want to move this thread elsewhere.

GFrench,

Hi and welcome but, erh, we could use a little more info here...

--> Does it crank all the way down or do you have problems during the lowering process? If it sticks or binds coming down, that could signal a number of things including stuck pulleys, jumped or binding cables, corner poles not telescoping easily, or a damaged wiffle tree among many other choices.

--> If it cranks all the way down freely, does it remain 2-3 inches above the lower rail when the cranking ends? If so, that's generally normal and you have simply to carefully push each corner of the roof down and engage the latches. (You're just squooshing the canvas and etc inside.)
If the corners still won't compress to latch height, you may want to re-open the roof 2 or 3 ft and repack the canvas into a smoother and flatter arrangement.

Let us know what you find and good luck.

JT

Just picked this up today, a 1967 Apache Chief. It came with the awning and full screen enclosure.

This is my 1974 Apache Ramada the day I brought it home. That's my restored 1978 Yellowstone Country Club in the back ground.

Congrats, if you have not met Phoodieman, PM a message to him with any questions. He is an Apache enthusiast.
