 [tv-ford]I have a Phoenix (Coyote) Pop-up Camper on my truck.  After several years of use, the grey vinyl (canvas) in the pop- up section has a few nicks and small tears starting.  I have a small roll of repair vinly material (same as original material) but have no idea of what type of glue to use.  Since it is vinyl like, do I use PVC glue or would I best be suited to go to a Marine Store and buy a rubber boat repair kit.    Pickup Red

Have you thought about removing the canvas and having the patches sewn by an automotive upholstery shop?

It is a major task to remove the canvas on a pick-up style pop-up camper.  Patching is the only way to do it.

I have used "Tear Aid" on my vinyl canvas after an unexpected and near disastrous storm came up a couple of years ago and we wound up with a hole on ours. Works GREAT and does not leak, easy to use.  We just barely missed being flattened by a 80' + tall Sycamore at Gerald Freeman campground near Sutton WV, but got a 2-3" hole in the top above my bed from a smaller limb.  We have been through several rains with it and no leaks or even a hint of one. Bought mine on Ebay

If you can't find that Tear Aid, use a vinyl cement. I have found HH-66 to be excellent, but the stuff you get in a tube at sporting goods stores should do in a pinch.
