Never had a pop up camper before. I know this one is going to need a couple of the canvas/tent sections replaced, plus an owners manual or guide would be nice if anyone can point me in the right direction i would really appreciate it.

Re: star craft tent trailer parts/ repair Fred 6-5-09  
Many of the problems stated on this pages are broken lift cables. I had, until recently, a 1976 StarCraft Starmaster8 trailer. I owned the trailer for 21 years. After I had owned the trailer for approx 15 year the right hand corner of the roof would not go all the way up until I manually pushed it up into place. After a couple of years the cable on that corner broke. The problem that caused the cable to break was that: one of the nylon (plastic) rollers on pulley had broken and the cable was wrapped around the pin (spindle) that the roller had turned on and broke. I tried two different pulleys off the rack at the local hardware store and both broke because they could not take the load. I ordered two all metal pulleys, from from a firm in Wisconsin, made specifically for Stracraft trailers and they worked perfectly until I sold the trailer. Installing the cable is not rocket science. Purchase new cable approx. the same size as original. Start by attaching new cable to trailer at lower end of telescoping raising post then thread cable trough all pulleys and secure to to adjustable I-bolt and reinstall I-bolt into raising mechanism after pulling cable as tight a possible. Lower the trailer top having someone keep the corner being repaired level with the other corners. With top completely down tighten I-bolt until corner of top starts to go up and you're done after cutting off excess cable. Cables are secured using lead cable clamps (do not use U-bolt cable clamps).

Note: To secure cable ends, thread cable through one hole on lead clamp and around part (terminal bolt or I-bolt) to be secured and back through other hole, then crimp clamp. I found that Vice Grips works best to crimp lead cable clamps. ft st

Re: star craft tent trailer parts/ repair Tara 4-15-08  
I just purchased a 1978/9 Starcraft tent trailer. Everything is in tip top shape with a couple minor exceptions. I am looking for the little "table top" that attaches to the outside of the trailer as well as the little plastic sleeve with a catch pin (goes on the end support arms and they allow the poles to click into place when in the open position in order to hold up the ends...we have one where the clip has broken and thus the one corner gets lazy and wants to fold in on the corner of the big bed. Also need an outside cover for the pole storage area (currently using duct tape as the hinge!). Any suggestions would be most welcome. Many thanks and happy spring!

Re: star craft tent trailer parts/ repair Rex 6-28-10  
I just replaced all of the cables, and most of the pullys on my 1972 Starcratft pop up with parts from Home Depot hardware store here in Texas. I did not have a manual, but once you look it over it is fairly simple to do. Need to lift trailer up on good jack stands to work under it, and you will also need to raise the top up and support it on good 2x4 boards as you will need to remove the lifting systems at each coner. Good luck
