Our favorite type of DIY RV project is one that’s both surprisingly manageable and also saves a lot of money. Replacing your RV’s patio awning fabric fits that description really well. A confident DIY RVer with a couple of friends can handle this job just fine, saving well over half the cost of having it done at an RV shop. If you thought that replacing your old vinyl main awning was out of your league as a Do-it-Yourselfer, watch this first and you just might change your mind!
We know that a lot of people are afraid of “The Spring!” on an awning, but under the personal guidance of Tough Top Awnings owner Ray Oberreuter, we saw how the whole process was really manageable.
We purchased slide topper replacement fabric a few years ago from Tough Top Awnings. When we opened the box, it was immediately obvious that it was superior to the original fabric (double-stitched, very tight weave and noticeably thicker) and also less expensive than OEM replacement material. Their main patio awnings are no different. Excellent quality at a great price.
Ray was very responsive when we had questions during the ordering process and obviously takes pride in making a superior product at a lower price. When we decided to replace our bedroom slide toppers last year, it was a no-brainer to order from Tough Top Awnings again. You can get more details by visiting their website:
FULL DISCLOSURE: After seeing our original video, Ray was so pleased with it that he asked to sponsor all of our videos (if you are a regular RVgeeks viewer, you’ve probably seen Tough Top Awnings mentioned in our video descriptions). We were only willing to allow that because we truly believe in Ray’s products and think they’re a great value compared with the (thinner and more-expensive) OEM replacement fabric. We will NEVER recommend ANY product that we feel is anything less than a great find for other RVers. Period.
