Am I best going through a dealer, or can I order one online somewhere cheaper?

Thanks for the help!

I found the best pricing on Ebay, there is a store on there named ShadePro, I believe that has the best prices I have seen. Good luck, but that is about the best pricing I have found when I was searching. I ended up selling my trailer without replacing my awning so I can't say how well the service was. I do know if you have a commercial address available to accept freight shipment it was more cost effective for shipping.

When I called some local dealers in comparison they were another 400-600 dollars for the same model awning.

Good luck!

I replaced the awning fabric on my trailer last year, only cost about $260. Depending on how handy you are, it requires two people. There are several you-tube videos on replacement.

Thanks! I will check. I think I need the whole set up, becuase when I bought this used I think they swapped a bad one. The arms when extended up dont lock into the top by the roller, so it just bounces up and down.

I will check out Ebay. Thanks again!

Does anyone know why this retainer clip would not be locking down into the 2 slots on the bottom of the white rail?

It is allowing my awning to move up and down even with the black knob tight.
