Replacement Awning or Part

Looking for a replacement awning for a 13' Lil Bigfoot. Ours got stuck in the rail last fall when it snowed (iced up) and we had to cut it out regretfully.
Alternatively, if anyone knows where I can get a replacement piping (the part that goes into the rail) that can be sewn back on the old awning, that would be great too. Don't know what the part is called or even what brand to look for.
Thanks!

Perhaps you could use a standard polyethylene rope a bit smaller than the rail opening, wrap your awning edge around it and sew it, thereby making a new piping for your existing awning? Cost would be minimal but the sewing probably would require a heavy duty machine, depending on what your awning is made of.

What you are looking for is called either "awning welt" or "awning welting". You should be able to purchase it at a number of locations, and it is available on-line. Just type that into you search engine.

Just found it on eBay
