Better than any so called "Camouflage-design".

 

Looking great!

Cory, 

This is spooky! You're doing the exact same things that I intend on doing on mine!

Nice timing!  I've been meaning to get on here and ask if anyone has a source for some new stripe kits for these?  Or the dimensions for stripes?  Mine is still fully tarped up as I'm preoccupied with foundation repairs at my house.  They finished today, so I'm getting closer to being able to work on the camper again.  I ordered in a couple Jayco decals, but the stripes are next.

The Jayco decals I got were a bit off, but at 6 feet who cares. The "pinstripes" at the top are 1" vinyl striping, eBay find for both. The Jayco decals were 1/8" smaller, and if I had more time to dedicate to it, I would have stripped it further. Honestly I like the shadow effect that it gave. 

 

The camo is a truck rocker panel vinyl set. There was more than enough to wrap around the whole thing. I could have also put it in the "front" where it contacts the bed, but no one will see that area and it would have needed a seam. Biggest thing with the rocker panel decal doing it myself was I should have done it in a warmer time of the year. Nothing a heat gun couldn't help me out with though. Definitely worth it for the look, especially since I got the rocker decal on a pretty good discount from a local hardware store. 

 

Looks good to me....now I need to find replacement decals for all the little decals, fresh water, city water, etc. 

 

She's loaded up on Brutus right now ready for a weekend of turkey hunting, Godly men sharing experiences and Christ's love, and NO CELL SERVICE!!!! OPENING DAY!!!!

 

God bless all your work. Stay safe out there.

Thanks Cory!  I'm kind of embarrassed to use mine because of all the stickers being tore up. So, a little lipstick on it will definitely help!

I'm sure you've looked at it before, but the factory Jayco catalog has some of the smaller decals in it.

Have a safe trip!

Well...no gobblers this weekend, but great fellowship.

I had to take a few beauty shots too.

The extra battery and solar panel helped tremendously. Even with rain most of the weekend and overcast skies, I came home with over 12v.

And one with the closest thing to a mountain we have here. We went to the top looking for those thunder chickens with no response

Hello;

 

Looks like you had major project on the 1992 rebuild.  I have a 1993 Jayco Sportster 8.  One of my roof lifts is not working.  I will not close down.  If you have any photos or information that can assist me it would be greatly appreciated.  I took it to a local shop and they could not make the repairs.  I am attempting to get as much information as possible prior to starting it myself.

Thank you,

alan_h

Allan,
I am in the same situation dealing with it. I completely pulled mine out. It is Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch (not wench ha ha ha), a probably DLB800 but might be a 1200. I found a couple of places to find replacement. The 1st is at www.popupparts.com. The specific part is: http://www.popuppart...oducts_id=2061.

Of course I found a couple of other places but accidentally deleted the note I was keeping. The Jayco number is (800) 283-8267

Hope this helps you out.... GH
