Thank you so much for the info on the zip sliders.
I unpicked the stitching at the base of the zipper , removed the slider and closed it up a little. Replaced it and - bingo - it works a treat.
what a great idea.i just need to resow the base.

Sturdy and functional


We have just got back from 12 months camping in our Tambo Cooper. Although it was 10 year old when we bought it, it never failed us. It coped with huge storms, wild wind and anything in between. It travelled over the roughest roads, where other camper trailers were left broken by the side of the road. Just a great, solid piece of work.
Reliable, well designed and set up.
Take spare zip sliders, they do wear out.



Towed ours around Australia for 16 months, setup over 120 times, 400+ nights use in every weather extreme and it still performs as good as new. Get the electric brakes and swivel coupling options.

Zip sliders wear out after a few months constant use

Questions & Answers



Hi, how hard is it to replace the zip sliders in the main door of the Tambo Cooper?

Hi Anthony,
I'm don't really sew but I managed. I unpicked the end of the zip using a pair of nail scissors, slid the old slider off and then slid the new one on. I then roughly sewed it up so that the slider wouldn't slide right off the end. It took me about 40 minutes. I only did one end and we only used that slider. Hope that helps.


We have replaced numerous top main door zip sliders on our Cooper. Then recently we found that if you take a pair of pliers and gently pinch the top and bottom rear and side edges of the slider a little closer together so you get a tighter fit (but don't strangle it,) the problem is sorted. I think it's a matter, not of the slider wearing out, but rather the pressure on it as it goes around the top curve of the main door eventually pushes the plates apart so that they can no longer force the teeth to mesh. We have only tried this once so far but it definitely seems to have solved the problem. For now, anyway.
