Ripped Canvas

My husband ripped the canvas in his haste to set up. He pulled too hard and it now has an L shaped rip. Is there an easy fix for this or is it something that we will need to have repaired by and RV shop?

Its all what's acceptable to you. There's canvas repair tape, works pretty good, and you could get somewhat of a matching color or be creative, maybe turn it into a C. I paid $265 for the front bunk canvas for my last hybrid when the mice ate some significant holes. The canvas repair tape did good until my new canvas came in. There's also upholstery companies (probably in your area) that will sew it, but you will probably need to take it to them.

I ripped a hole in our popup canvas. Asked my dealer and they had a place to send it to. Thinking it was the factory . Because they took apart the panel and replaced the piece that was ripped. Was like $200 with shipping.

is it fabric or is it vinyl canvas?

easy enough to cut a patch and I would use super glue to hold the patch in place on either fabric... spray it with a canvas fabric water repellent if it is fabric

Is this a new Roo?
I would contact the canvas manufacturer. Should be TJ Snuggles in Indiana.
