Adding Power Lift to my 2010 Jay Series 1207

Hello all,
I just purchased a 2010 Jay Series 1207 and we love it! But I would like to see if it is possible to add a power lift to the roof? I'm sure there must be a kit as an add on item? Thanks for any advice or help you may have on this

My daughter also just purchased a 2010 Jay Series 141 and would like to do the same.

No one else ever wanted to add a power lift?

There is one made by Carefree of Colorado

Carefree of Colorado 12v Pop-up Camper Lift Kit P92001 - Newegg.com

Amazon has it cheaper

http://www.amazon.com/Carefree-P3000.../dp/B003VASIV4

We. had one on our Viking PUP and loved it. Used it year round for almost 10 yrs with no issues.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply! Did you install it yourself? What was needed to make it all fit?

Get a 1/2" battery operated impact wrench (Harbor Freight $99.00) it would be good for lifting the top, setting the stabilizers, and changing tires. I used one on my pop up years ago and have been using it on my TT with no problems..

Ours was already installed on our unit when we purchased. It was the carefree of Colorado brand. Sorry I couldn't answer your question.

The lift made set up very easy. I know some people used their 18V or 24V power drill with the following bit attached.

Hope this helps.

I am considering doing this with the electric/battery powered drill, but wasn't sure how robust the crank mechanism is?
