Question Best replacement awning brand??

The awning on our 2011 Crossroads Zinger has seen better days. It's looking pretty rough, and needs to be replaced. It's the standard Dometic/A&E Sunchaser awning that lots of campers have.



As far as replacement awning material goes....what are my options? I haven't been able to find any OEM type replacement (Dometic), but I've found a few brands on Amazon that look ok (Sunwave, ShadePRO)....but reviews are all over the place.



What's a good brand to go with when I buy a replacement awning??


Thanks!!

I got mine on ebay from top-shade. The fabric for a 15' awning was $120 last summer but may have gone up since then. We installed ourselves so that made it a pretty cheap replacement. If you buy it cheap enough and do the work yourself, you can have a brand new one every few years

Looks like somebody didn't lower one end before the rain hit.

You are correct, sir. But the damage was done when I attempted to lower one of the sides of the frame the sudden weight of the gushing water knocked the frame from my hands, resulting in the bent roller.
