The poles that go from the ground up to meet the ones that come off the roof have a tab with a hole in the top of them. The tab from the poles off the roof goes through the holes from...

    Sideboard replacement

    We have a 1995 Viking 175SD and noticed an area of wood rot on the side board. Want to know if it is possible to replace that board without taking the entire roof off. How hard is it to do? How long does it take? Any special tools needed? We are nervous about "digging" in!

    starcraft decals

    I'm posting this for my brother who has an older (95) starcraft meteorite camper. His decals are starting to peel off and he is wondering where the best place for new vinyl decals would be. They do not need to be color coordinated to the year of the camper, newer ones are fine. If anyone has...
