Replacement Vinyl For Bigfoot 17' Awning

The original awning on our 1993 17' Bigfoot is cracking & peeling so we are looking into replacing the vinyl only as the mechanism works well & we don't want to make more holes up there to put on an entirely new system. Where would any of you recommend we buy this - we live in Toronto, Canada so any help would be appreciated.
Is there anything we should know about or can it be a straight replacement like this?

It would be great if we could get it in Canada but will likely have to order it & have it shipped.

I had the fabric on my 17' Bigfoot replaced last year at a Camping World, but any full service RV shop can do that. There"s nothing specific to Bigfoot about it.

Replacement Awning Fabric.

It's really a simple do-it-yourself job, but 2 persons. When you order the fabric, it'll come with instructions. The only problem we had was that the number of turns to preload the internal spring was too low. We needed to pull the end off and give it about 4 more turns - it wouldn't retract all the way up. No big deal though.
Good luck.
