1974 starcraft venture pop up camper pulley system / canvas April 12-30-07  
Just bought a used 1974 starcraft venture pop-up camper - canvas in fair shape - might want to replace - not sure where to begin?? The cable pulley system is not working - using 2x4 boards to hold up - stable but not sure if safe with kids coming and going!! Anyone know what it might cost to replace pulleys - is it possible to do the work ourselves???
Any ideas!!!!?????

April:

I should have also mentioned that they also sent out aluminum support braces that clipped on to the lift beams to make sure the roof would not fall. Same idea that you are using the 2x4's for.

Where do you find the year on one of these old ventures? We just got one as a winter project to work on, and was just wondering if anyone knew where I could find the age of the thing.

Re: 1974 starcraft venture pop up camper pulley system / canvas William 5-15-09  
I had the same problem with my 1972 Starcraft. I raised the roof and put in the safety supports. I spliced in a new cable along side the broken one and connected it to the center lift(where all 4 cables meet). Just make sure the cable it very tight when you reconnect to the center lift. I also changed the center lift cable, which was much easier
Re: 1974 starcraft venture pop up camper pulley system / canvas Linda 8-12-10  
Just bought 1977 starcraft venture pop up camper, I was told not to go past a mark on the pully because if you go too far you can not get it down. it is working fine, but what would you do if it would not come down?
If I were to replace pully system I would go to croft trailer.

Re: 1977 starcraft venture pop up camper pulley system / canvas Bob 1-20-10  
I have a 1977 Venture Canterbury I'm restoring I have to replace the wood in the top and some plywood in the body while I have the skin off I'm going to rewire both the 12vdc and 117vac. Then give her a good cleaning inside as for the frame it needs sandblasting then painting
Re: 1974 starcraft venture pop up camper pulley system / canvas Scott 3-3-08  
April:

Starcraft had a recall on the Venture lift system because the cables were originally carbon steel which rusted and broke. The recall replaced the cables with stainless steel cables. This is likely part of the problem. I believe Starcraft may still support that product.

The cables on my 1974 starcraft venture recently busted and I'd like to know if anyone has any clue on how to replace and attach them to hold the trailer up. I am also looking for a diagram of some sort that will enable me to repair it myself.

Re: 1974 starcraft venture pop up camper pulley system / canvas JP 2-23-09  
I had a 74 venture and I got tired of looking for the cables and proping it with 2x4s and just bought a new camper. My venture frame made for a good base for a utility trailer. I moved the wheels to the outside and put rails on. Great trailer, very heavy frame.
Re: 1974 starcraft venture pop up camper pulley system / canvas Bill Glasco 8-17-09
