Our current RV is over 11 years old, so our patio awning has seen better days. In this video tutorial, we’ll share the step-by-step directions as we swap out the old fabric for new.

We’ve replaced a lot of awnings and slide toppers with Tough Top Awnings fabric, so we know we’re installing quality material that will hold up and look great for years.

This is the first time we’ve worked on a WeatherPro, so we’re happy to be in Vancouver, WA, where Tyler and Ray of Tough Top Awnings will take the lead and show us how it’s done. The great thing is that even though we have professionals helping us, we’re creating this video so that our fellow RVers will now be able to see how to do it themselves. With this video as a guide, we could easily have handled the job ourselves, even if we hadn’t watched Ray & Tyler do it for us.

If, after watching this (or any of our other tutorials on slide topper and awning replacement), you still don’t feel that you’re up to doing it yourself, Tyler handles awning and slide topper installations at their shop in the Vancouver, WA area. He’ll also be making his annual pilgrimage to Quartzsite, AZ during the January, 2017 RV show, where he’ll be available for slide topper installations all week. As a matter of fact, we’ll be there with him this coming year, shooting some video of the excitement! We’ll have a more formal announcement about that in a couple of months, but let this be your early warning that we’ll be there!

In the meantime, if you have the same A&E / Dometic WeatherPro power patio awning that we do, this video provides all the detail needed for any fairly handy RVer to tackle the job. If you’ve put off replacing your awning due to the high cost (and mediocre quality) of paying a shop to install OEM fabric, you’ll be thrilled with the results of a new Tough Top Awning. You’ll save a ton of $$ (especially with the RVgeeks discount!) and enjoy the satisfaction of having done the job yourself, with better results to boot!
