Replacement Awning Skin?

My friend is replacing the skin on the awning of his Bigfoot 5th wheel. Everything mechanically works fine, but the material is cooked and needs replacing. Any ideas on the best (cheapest) way to do this?

Many of the awning manufactures will sell replacements - search on line as the prices vary a great deal.

you might have to measure the thickness of the material if you change to something else. to make sure it rolls up properly.

otherwise "sunbrella" is great material.

Replacement Awning Fabric

If you Google the awning manufacturer and number and 'replacement awning fabric' you should get lots of hits.
In my case, I got a good price and availability from :
<http://www.adventurerv.net/8500-awning-vinyl-replacement-fabric-sea-green-p-28433.html>

I haven't ordered it yet as they don't want you to store it boxed up and I'm not yet ready to unfold it and install it.
Instructions for measuring and installing are on the Net. Be aware that there is some hazard in the installation, as the awning is rolled up with powerful springs that could cause some damage if released accidentally. Use care.
Good luck.
Mike
