Hi everyone, I picked up a free sierra ajc today, it was given to me after an online advert.

There are 2 issues the first being the rear door is missing, easy repair with wood, the second is mice have had a nice winter holiday in it and the entire canvas is gone.

Does anyone know anything about this trailer tent and how easy is it to make your own canvas?

Pictures of the project, problems and progress will follow.

thank you to every one who helped in my other post

Congratulations on your new project. Replacing the door should be easy enough - catches and locks are available on ebay and the framed out door just requires careful measuring. The canvas shouldnt be too difficult but it may be worth investing in a good 2nd hand older sewing machine (new ones are too light weight to cope with canvas) Have you the old canvas for the template? If you have remember to allow for the seams etc when cutting (running flat seams need a generous seam allowance.)
remember lots of photos before and after and have fun.

Is it perhaps an early Jamet? Andre Jamet Co rings a bell.

i have tried placing an add on here but it doesn't seem to have worked

Does anyone have or know where i can get either a large old canvas tent or tent off of a trailer tent very cheap or free to a great home?

I may have found some old scout tents free to collect but they are over the other side of the country and i cannot travel at the moment

Bad news!

I had some bad news on Tuesday, I booked the Monday and Tuesday off of work to sort out the chassis, Sunday afternoon lent it against my wall out the front and put a yellow cone out to mark the hitch was sticking out. Monday all of the prep work is complete, yeah. Tuesday morning ready for underseal coffee made, wait brush, BANG SCRAPE!! what the.... Look out window, nnnnoooo! Man stood scratching his head? Unlocked and opened the front door, 'sorry I clipped your trailer because I didn't clear the ice from my window', I assess the damage and note the legs are all bend and the bed and tent stays are twisted out of shape! Tent part no longer usable, his car is a mess as well.

On the hunt for another 'free to collect' trailer tent if anyone can help?

Oh dear. Sorry to hear that your plans have been scuppered after all that work. Is the neighbour going to compensate you for the damage?
