    Default fwc material fix

    going to look at a older fwc granby, supposed to have an 8" cut in the popup material. is that easy to fix, or will I have to get new material for the sides? any idea how much new sides would be? seems like you should be able to repair it.
    its around a 84 model. been sitting under a awning for 8-10 years. anything else to look out for? is $1000 unreasonable if its in good shape? thanks.
    Gonna put it in an older 80's chevy truck.

    no need to be shy, just figured there might be a better solution than just some duct tape!

    It can be patched. The guys at FWC can point you in the right direction - as well as give you a quote on a replacement (was $1000 last year, parts only).

    Check the velcro on the windows - it wears out & then the windows won't stay closed - kind of a pain.
