Hello! We have a 1988 GMC Jimmy with a FWC we bought on craigslist. I am not sure the age of the FWC but it's not new... the interior now has a significant amount of mildew and the care of the exterior of the vinyl was subpar. Anyone have any recommendations of who one could call or how to repair some gnarly interior and exterior? The pacific northwest was not kind to this FWC. Thank you!!

First welcome to the site.

 

Look for the FWC builders tag.Usually in the lower right rear corner of the camper.

 

The two companies that could give info on repairs are FWC ask for Stan and the ATC campers

ask for Marty/Jeff.

Even though your camper is  FWC the people at ATC do a lot of repair and info on FWC campers.

 

There is a lot of great info that comes from members here.

Ask questions on what you need and I am sure help will come.

Jimmy, another vote for All Terrain Campers.   There is a good chance Marty and Jeff were the guys who built your camper.   Their rates are reasonable, and their work is superb.

Lets see some pics first. It may be that it doesn't need professional repair. Hard to tell from your description.

I sewed my own. If you are interested in that route, I have a ton of videos outlining the sewing process.

I ordered new vinyl top for my FWC Ranger II (Eagle) from ATC in early Jan. Supposed to be ready sometime this month. I think installed it will be about $2K. $1,200 for the top and $800 installation. I could install it myself, but somethings are best left to the professionals.I bought my camper used 14 years ago and the vinyl was marginal then, so I can't complain.
