1006 1994?

[I picked up my first ever camper today. It's a model 1006, I think a 1994, (1UJAJO1F8R1PP0170 .... The owner wasen't sure of the year.)
It hasen't seen much use but also was not stored well. It is complete and intact and all the componants seem to work well, even the A/C. The canapy, (canvas) is pretty rough with some patches and torn screens. The replacements i've seen cost around $900.00 ..... The budget isn't going to be able to handle that right away. [Does anyone know of a camper salvage business.....? Maybe theres a good used one out there somewhere.[It will require a good power wash on the exterior and a serious cleaning and disinfecting inside. Were pretty excited about it. We will be towing it behind our 1969 Chrysler 300 to several car shows this summer.
It's nice to meet y'all. I'd appreciate any help and advice anyone can offer. We've never done this before.

Welcome to JOF

There are a couple RV parts surplus/wholesalers located around the Michigan/Indiana boarder, I just don't remember their names. These guys buy up a lot of the RV manufactures and RV OEM suppliers older parts inventories.

A little 'google' time and I'm sure you will find these guys. If I run across any I will post back.

Here's one: http://bontragers.com

]Thanks for the info and link Bob. I had done a google search for salvage sources but had not thought of surplus outlets..... I'll give that a shot.

spent the day yesterday cleaning the exterior with purple power and a pressure washer. I was pleased at how well it cleaned up, bright white again.[/B]
Today I tackeled the inside. Pulled the covers off the foam and i'll take them to the laundermat tomorrow. The upholstery and mattress covers are in nice shape ... just soiled a little. Stove looks like it has not even been used. A piece of the wood across the front of the box will need replaceing, should be easy enough.
The canvas is borderline and should be replaced I think. Just cost so darn much for a new one. All else is just a matter of cleaning and detailing.

It has a 17 digit standard automotive industry VIN.....in that case the 10th digit is the model year. Jayco uses alpha characters to code the model year.....mine is C (which should be 2012)

Model Year "R" is a 1994. (8th spot from the last number) Replacement canvas will be expensive.

After the exterior clean up I took a good look at the inside of my 94 1006.
]I removed the original canvas and found traces of "punky" wood.
[Although the camper has not had a lot of use the effects of bad storage became evident with an inspection.
=blue]I tore into it yesterday and today and should have the damage repaired by tomorrow. I also ordered a new green bear creek canvas. (If anyone is concidering them for a new canvas you need to get in touch with them. They are on sale ..... free shipping .... & 10-12 weeks backlogged).

While i'm at it i'm going to change some of the paneling, and install new floor covering.

Do you still have this pop up? I’m trying to locate the vin on my 1995. I can’t find it anywhere and I’ve essentially torn apart the entire interior. Nothing on either side wall, nothing on anything inside.

Is it stamped into the "A" frame by the hitch? On the top.

Nothing on the A frame tongue besides the A-10 trailer manufacturers part number and model number - nothing related to Jayco or the pup vin.

There is a white or silver looking metallic hospital like bracelet with numbers and letters fixed to the axle above the axle sticker.

Nothing anywhere else .

I do have the previous owners tx plate with expired registration from whenever they last had a valid registration. I go online to register and it needs last four of vin! Ugh

In 1995 JAYCO made all their own frames so any numbers are JAYCO's...

That's just the coupler that they bought to weld to the frame.

The Vin # would be stamped on the drivers side of the "A" frame on the top. It may not be visible if the frame has been repainted numerous times.

I hit the A frame with a wire brush attached to a drill and nothing so far. The tongue writing was etched into the coupler from Atwood so very easy to remove the rust and previous paint. I have not had any luck finding the vin. Perhaps next weekend I will attempt a stronger brush or sandpaper.
