How to Replace RV Window Awning Fabric

TheRVgeeks Awnings & Slide Toppers, Repair 10 Comments

Are you suffering the heartbreak of faded, cracked or torn RV window awnings? Are you embarrassed to have your friends see your rig in this condition? We’ll show you how easy it is to replace them yourself, so you can hold your head high in the campground once again.

Awnings and slide toppers take a beating in the sun. Over the years, we’ve shown how to replace the fabric on many different models. Because it’s easy to do, saves so much money, and provides better-than-new results (after all, it’s the cheap OEM stuff that failed you in the first place), it’s one of our very favorite DIY projects.

Since they’re smaller than main awnings (and even most slide toppers) window awnings are particularly easy to replace yourself, at a particularly reasonable cost. Obviously, the labor is free when you do it yourself. And not only is the material we use (from Tough Top Awnings, of course) less expensive than OEM, but it’s far higher quality.

And of course Tough Top fabric is an even better deal, since they offer a special discount to our viewers. 😄 LIke we always say: “Friends don’t let friends pay a shop to replace their awnings or slide toppers.”

  1. The springs in our Colorado Care Free awning have given up the ghost! We need new springs as it won’t roll up anymore. The awning is only about a 7 ft long awning. Do you know where we might be able to get new springs for it? We had to dismantle it completely to remove it from the rig. Does Tough Top sell springs for awings?

  2. Is it possible to show how to replace an awning that is open and closed by a power motor? All I’ve seen is the replacement of non motorized kind. Thanks love your videos especially the one in Panama

    1. Make sure youiput a moisture barrier down before the flooring .I have a wood laminate floor in mine and with water being a issue .I would go to a inlay one piece or if you want to put a plank looking floor use a vinyl plank floor.. You may have to put a sub floor thickness to meet the rug level. Good Luck.
