I can't recommend http://www.popupexplorer.com/ enough. Go there and do a search for your problem because there were/are problems galore with the circa 2000 Fleetwood/Coleman ABS roofs. I have a 1999 and mine has luckily been free of problems, but I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop.

The shipping is crazy. Any chance you can take a trip to the factory? It would probably cost you the same, but at least you'd get a little vacation out of it.

Even if you have to pay for the shipping, I'd recommend doing it anyway. Only the original owner can get the roof like that and if you sell it without fixing it you won't get as much for your unit, plus the next owner will be looking at about a $3,000+ bill to do what will cost you $1,200. We are the second owners of ours and that's part of why we wait with baited breath to see what's going to happen with ours.

Fleetwood/Coleman pups are the best out there, but they definitely made a misstep with that ABS roof. Too bad, because it's a handsome roof.

Look at your manual. I live in Elkhart IN where they manufacture many units of RV's; most of them will gladly do the work without shipping if you travel there with the unit.

Just talked to our dealer. For our 1999 Santa Fe, the top is under a lifetime warranty including labor. HOWEVER, it doesn't include the freight to get it sent out which is a whopping $1200 to Colorado

Could someone please tell me how to replace the roof (ceiling) in my pop up camper? It's an 86 Star Craft, and now we are ripping out the foam. We have fixed the roof, so it no longer leaks, but the entire ceiling on the inside needs replacing. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Replacing the Ceiling of a Pop-Up Camper

Sounds about like my husband's next project. He has done this before. As long as you don't leak, then invest in an auto book for interior headliner fabrics. You can check out a fabric warehouse for similar insulating type material. Use an automotive adhesive glue (as for the headliner). Or if you can tack with upholstery stapler, that is good, too. If you don't care too much on colors, etc, get some Marlite panels like for showers, and put that up over it all. (06/10/2010)
