Anyone had to remove canvas from a Kimberly Kamper? How long does it take etc. I may have to remove to repair damaged zipper on fly door.
Cheers

Can't you just use a pair of long nose pilers to slightly bend in the ends of the slider.

Try the pliers on the slider as suggested. We had the same problem with our campertrailer and I was quoted $350.00. We had nothing to loose and it works again. Julie

It would be BIG job - I would try to avoid removal at any cost
Maybe a canvas expert may have some type of hand held machine to save removal of canvas ????? -

Thanks all for comments.
Got some help from ladies at work and have successfully repaired the zip. Cut across, removed slider, repaired slider and then slid back on and sewed up small section with fishionf line then applied silicone to repaired section. Like new. Cost ? Three stubbies.
