Well well well, things are about to get real interesting...Thanks to my wanted ad, brought this home today. Huge thanks to everyone on this forum, and especially for Greg who reached out to me. Told him he made my year!
Overall its in decent shape considering it came off of a totalled sportsmobile that flipped. Most damage was already fixed by the seller, as originally he was going to use it. The most damaged part is the bottom of the canvas where it meets the top of the van.
Since the rest is in good shape I want to make it work. The way i look at it, the three options for that is:
1. Out of sight, out of mind. Try and make it work as best possible. There really is only one or two bad spots as pictured
2. Try and reinforce t somehow
3. Basically trim where it was previously mounted and have the top extend 2" shorter.
I think I will do the last option, but curious what others think
