Measuring an awning

2012 coachman Catalina dlx 28 dds

Camping Memorial Day weekend we had a downpour over night that trashed the awning trying to get new one. Online vendors say measure center to center on arms which is roughly 20ft but brochure lists as 18 which would be correct. Or is the brochure just listing actual material size

If you check the Dometic awning label on the drum, it should have a number like 802GU16.001B. The sixth and seventh digits are the width, 16 feet in this example, at least it is on my Sunchaser II.
