Awning repair?

We have a 2016 wolf pup. When the awning is fully extended there is a 2 inch tear on the end close to camper. Is this fixable or do we have to replace the whole thing? Thank you!

Have you looked into awning repair tape?

Awning Repair Tape


People also use Eternabond tape to repair tears.


Upholstery shops can often fix awning fabrics. You'd likely have to remove the fabric for repair. I did on the two I had sewn.

There are "awning repair tape" products available just for that purpose. Dicor brand is very good but, there are others. I went to Camping World & got an off brand 4" clear (not really clear but...). My seam thread along the folded edge of the awning had completely deteriorated. I put 9' of the clear tape on a week and a half ago & so far, so good! It seems to be holding the hem quite well even after several retractions & extensions.
