Hi Folks,
So even though my UEV390 is just two years old it seems that the tent cover needs replacing. The cover seems to have rotted or deteriated from being in the sun as it is sticky to touch and gets quite smelly when hot. It is also now leaking.

So has anyone looked into replacing the cover by having a canvas cover custom made or do i just go to conqueror and buy a replacement cover off them? Although if it will need replacing agian in two years i would rather have a new cover made.

Would definately followup for warranty replacement.

Use the old cover as a pattern to have a new one made if when the replacement deteriorates.

Cheers

Anthony

Australian Consumer Law will see you right.

It covers secondhand purchases as well as new and protects you past the OEM warranty.

So i rang conqueror headquaters and as far as they are concerned it is wear and tear. To me it is a low quality product and i hope the roof lasts longer.
I will be having it repaired and will look into having a canvas one made after i return fro W.A in July.

Although ours is a 490 it's only just on 3 years old and our awning bags are completely destroyed. Stitching has rotted through and the bags themselves are starting to flake. Clearly not UV stabilised they are, in my opinion, not "fit for purpose" (a phrase I recall from my consumer law studies all those years ago)

So i am getting a quote to have a new canvas cover made. Is there any fellow UEV390 owners interested in getting a new cover made? I thought that if there was interest i could see if a group purchase price is possible. I will discuss with my canvas maker about materials etc this week and pricing. 50% payment would be expected up front and purchaser would be paying their own postage.

Cheers, Simon
