I would like input and pictures on replacing the roof on a 2001 Coleman Santa Fe pop up tent trailer. Thank you.

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
