In this video, Tyler from Tough Top Awnings shares a couple of tips for replacing slide topper and awning fabric, offers RVgeeks viewers their biggest discount ever, and we announce our appearance in Quartzsite, AZ during the big January, 2017 RV show!
If you’ve watched any of our DIY videos about how easy it is to replace slide toppers, but have decided that you’d still rather not do it yourself, here’s your chance to have it done for you by one of the foremost professionals in the business. Tyler has replaced about a kazillion slide toppers (so many that he couldn’t give us an exact number, LOL!), and as usual, he’ll be installing them during the Quartzsite show. Due to time and technical constraints, it will be “slide topper replacements only” during the show. If you’d like to have him replace your awning, you can make arrangements to visit their new facility near Vancouver, WA.
For installations in Quartzsite, we highly recommend ordering your slide toppers in advance. If you pre-order, Tyler will custom-make your new slide toppers ahead of time, assuring that he’ll have them to install for you in Quartzsite (demand was so high last year that he ran out of fabric before the end of the show). So be sure to place your order in advance to guarantee you’ll get them!
Contact Tyler through the Tough Top Awnings website to place your order and let him know you’ll be coming to Quartzsite for installation. He’ll bring your new slide topper fabric to the show (January 21-29, 2017) and install it for you for a very reasonable price. In most cases, he can even come directly to wherever you’re parked in the area, and of course he’ll be doing installations during our appearance as well.
Of course our usual 5% discount code “RVGEEKSROCK” will be back in effect immediately after the Quartzsite show.
We’ll be providing the location, dates and times where we’ll be appearing via blog posts on our website. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to subscribe to receive details on meeting up with us this winter in the AZ desert.
If you’ve seen any of our videos about slide topper fabric replacement, you know that it’s pretty much our #1 favorite do-it-yourself RV project, because it checks every box for DIYers:
- Surprisingly easy to do (even the widely-feared spring is no worry… as Tyler demonstrates in this video!)
- Superior results compared to OEM (original equipment) replacement
- Saves a lot of $$ (OEM fabric is overpriced and labor is expensive)
As easy as the job is, we understand that it’s not for everyone. Even those of us who like to work on our own RVs can sometimes be short on time, or prefer to avoid climbing ladders, etc. We get it.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t still save money (Tough Top fabric is priced lower than OEM and Tyler charges a fair & reasonable price for installation) and still get superior results (their fabric is clearly much higher quality).
We’ve spent at least a little time in the Quartzsite desert during most winters since we started RVing, and we’re excited to be making our first appearance with Tyler. We’re getting details worked out, but we’ll be keeping our subscribers updated with both our, and Tyler’s, plans so that you can stop by to meet us.
If you haven’t already subscribed, be sure to do that today to keep in the loop about our schedule and exact location. Current plans have us in Quartzsite for at least the first weekend of the show (Sat & Sun, 1/21-22) but we’ll post an update when we get closer. And Tyler will be installing slide toppers throughout the show… or at least until he runs out of fabric!
