RV Awning Replacement | Carefree, A&E, Dometic, More
RV awning replacement is not too hard of an undertaking if you can find the right awning fabric and/or parts and hardware, depending upon how much of an awning replacement is needed. If you are only looking to replace the awning fabric itself, it will cost anywhere between $150-$300 depending on the size of the fabric you are replacing.
If you have a metal weather guard, or HI-LO and pop-up camper trailers, some RV awning replacement fabrics will not fit, so make sure if the description does not say one way or the other, to ask the manufacturer or dealer if it will. If you cannot find a replacement directly from the original manufacturer OEM parts (original equipment manufacturer), for example A&E, Carefree or Dometic, then you may be able to find generic or universal fabric and parts that will fit your original RV awning.
If you are able to purchase motorhome awning replacement fabric or parts directly from the original manufacturer, you will need to get the model and hardware parts numbers from your awning. These are usually inscribed directly on the awning and parts themselves. Go out and write them down now so you will have them when placing an order.
When purchasing universal replacement fabrics, you will find that many have the main canopy fabric separate from the valance in order to fit different kinds of roller tube configurations. Look for heavy-duty replacement fabrics that have a weatherguard vinyl protective layer to shield the awning when it is rolled up in the storage position.
You will need to take some exact measurements before ordering generic replacement fabric. Many companies will not allow you to return an item once ordered and is non-refundable. Some will not even let you cancel an awning once placed, so as they say, measure twice to be sure. Typical measurements include the width of the RV awning, is measured as the distance from the centerline of one awning arm to the centerline of the other arm. These size method measurements may differ from one company to the next, so again check directions for determining size and ask questions before ordering.
