Replace or repair?

I'm trying to figure out what I should do regarding the torn plastic window on my pop up camper. Should I go through the effort of getting it repaired and hope it doesn't tear again in another spot or should I break down and order a replacement canvas section? How hard is it to replace a canvas section? I hear that it's a 2 person job.

i would think any canvas repair shop or boat canvas repair, could put a new window in, without buying a whole new canvas end.

Would an automotive upholstery shop be qualified enough to perform the repair?

Okay, I'll start calling around next week. I may also call a local RV dealer and see if they can recommend someone. How hard is it to remove the canvas side? I'd prefer to try and do it myself rather than take it to a dealer and pay to have them take it off. As it looks now my 1st camping trip this year probably won't be until some time in late June / early July, so now it the time to do the repair.

Does anyone know how I would go about removing the canvas side so I can take it somewhere to be repaired?
