Ideas for canvas repair...

Howdy. Proud new owner of a '87 Jayco J-Series 1006 Deluxe. I will be living in it for the summer, move in date May 1. It is in excellent shape for its age. However the evolution 3 canvas has seen better days. I have time to commit and plenty of elbow grease, but not a whole lot of money and am looking for a cheaper but solid fix for the canvas.

It has a couple serious holes in the canvas and a lot of areas where the canvas is flaking off on the inside. Any ideas? I was thinking clear RV awning repair tape? Click image for larger version

iron on patches work good. you may also want to treat the canvas & seams with seam sealer for to waterproof the tent.
