If the screens have holes, get some new screening, a roll of the black rubber line that holds it in, and replace it all. The roller tool for the rubber comes in handy. Black color on the screening works best, especially if you plan to sleep in the back on camping trips. More privacy. I toss a futon mattress back there and a ton of blankets and pillows. If you WD-40 the window tracks they slide much easier. Anything in the front of the canopy where the front window is should be done prior to mounting. Once you put on the canopy it's tough to reach anything in that area.

Proof that Importfanboy has just aged 20 years and won't get laid for another 10.
