Default Maxum Camper Top

Hey All,

I have a 1996 2000 SCL Cuddy and I'm trying to find a camper top for it with no luck. I'm not sure if that's the official name for the type of top I'm looking for, but I basically want a fully enclosed top that you can walk around in and use the boat as a camper. If anyone could direct me to where I could find one or have one made, that would be great. Thank you very much for your help.

Welcome aboard

I am assuming you need both the fabric and frame work.

While CanvasPlus may or may not have the template for the fabric they will not supply the framework.

Your best bet is to have a local canvas shop make it all.

MMWJR,

Thanks for the info, I'll be sure to look into those. I'm wondering if these tops were ever offered for my model, or if they have to be custom made. I was hoping to just order it as a kit and be all set.

What you're describing is something that is custom made. Nobody could effectively manufacture every single make, model, size and year in bulk. They would sell one of everything per year and have a warehouse the size of Rhode Island.

Don't be afraid by custom, it's not as bad as it sounds. Find a good local canvas shop and they will be able to do one up for you. Good timing, since this is their busiest time of year.

Poor Workmanship Letas has lately i see ? She cuts to many corners now to save some money. Just because she has the patterns don't make her good. I sent all my stuff back for credit witch she did give back .
Go to local shop will last longer, and fit ?
Just my input .

gmc60,

Good input. I will take that into consideration for sure. I'm in the process of checking around my area to find a shop with good quality work. This is not something I need right away, but thought it'd be nice to have.

I don't know if it helps but I have the camping canvas and frame on my 2000scl.
If you want to come and make templates from it you can.
