Cable Replacement

Normally I hang out on the Winnebago site, but my son has me looking for an older used tent "pop up" trailer. Checking Craig's List has uncovered a few worth looking at however some indicate broken or needs replacing cable systems. The question being, generally speaking, how much trouble is it to replace them?

Thanks in advance, and no I dont have a particular brand in mind although Coleman seems to dominate.

I dont think they are a problem. I have bought a few in this condition and turned them around for a profit. I can replace them all in about eight hours I get the cables and I bolts at lowes or home depot.
