Been trying to call them for a little over a week now with no luck.  Anyone have other options for replacing screens?  I called Bear Creek yesterday.  They're a bit expensive and 12 weeks out for repairs.

I just spoke to Paul, he's still doing repairs. I have to send him my Eagle canvas as it ripped along the zipper over 4th of July weekend. Might double check the phone number used (810)664-3152.

It took me a while but I got the canvas to Paul. It was worse than I thought but he fixed it all up. He replaced a few panels and replaced the whole roof to part way down the ends with vinyl canvas. He removed the mess of overstitched screens and fixed and re-attached. He re-stitched just about everything. He replaced the bungees. He also repaired the matching awning. Great job! It ended up being $550 including shipping ($50 each way).

Sounds like what I had to do for my 69 Eagle canvas.

Paul repaired my '68 Eagle canvas a year or so ago. I had the zippers and screens replaced and a panel of bad canvas replaced. He did pretty good work for the most part, but missed some stitching on the zipper that I plan on fixing. If you have holes in the canvas that needs to be repaired, Kirkhams, the makers of Springbar canvas tents, has a canvas tent patch kit that would definitely be more economical than shipping your canvas to Paul for repairs.

Does anyone know if Gregory's is still making new canvas?  I did a quick search on here and didn't find anything.  The net shows Canvasco LLC has the same address as Gregory's did but no one answers the phone and there's no email address.  Any help would be much appreciated!
