Many RV repairs can be successfully done using original manufacturer kits, here are examples of Coleman repair kits....
It is very important for camper owners to be aware that low cost replacement parts may be also of low quality.
Although such parts and accessories at first look are attractive in the long term they may prove to be unreliable and our “happiness” – short living.
On the other side, spending a lot of bucks on for example replacement canvas is not easy task.
However if they are aware about patch kits available in the market they could consider investing a fairly reasonable amount on it and get a similar result as a total canvas replacement.
The components listed below are the main accessories which are sold at Coleman and each of included parts has been descriptively identified therein.
