Replacing the canvas in a Roo

Hi. Just wondering if anyone has ever removed the end tents on a Roo camper? If so is there any tricks to getting them back in the channels that hold them to the camper frame? Thanks.

First remove the screw near the bottom of the side metal frame that secures the tent end

Contact: Lorin Rigby

This company does top quality work, was very easy to work with and was the only ones willing to include vinyl windows on my new tent ends. Regular bunk end replacement with screens average around $900/ pair. My set cost $1,300 which included vinyl windows, three per bunk end. Pricey but well worth it.

it may have to do with the ends being fire exits.

DW and I just wanted to have the option of having the windows open without loosing the cold air when A/C is on in summer and lose of warm air during cold weather. I think you're right about the emergency exit limitation.
