Who owns the original Apache patterns?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Apache Popup Trailers : One Thread
At the Boat, Sport, & Travel Show in INDY last year a man told me some co in Wisconsin (The owner's dad is in the RV Hall of Fame ) owns the original patterns so I should go there instead of to somebody who had to make a replacement from mine.

Steve, I believe that Gregory's in Lapeer, Michigan owns the original patterns for the canvas on the Apache Campers.

I know that gregorys has some of them, as i have seen them. Bear creek (wisconsin)has some with a teriffic gurentee fit warrenty. fran in Lapeer also has them. There were lots of sets of patterns for the ladies who sewed the tops up. when the parts were sold to raise capitol the plans were scattered. If you can get the sides in synthetic canvas that eliminated the rot problem that killed many a top. Almost all tops come with vynal roofs and it is a good thing.
