Awning repair question...

We just got a new-to-us Forest River Flagstaff 831BHSS. We knew the awning was bad and had planned to replace it, but now that we have had a chance to really look at the awning, we are thinking that many there is a way to fix it at a reduced cost. Only about the first 10-12 inches on the part closest to the camper is ripped (and repaired with tape). Is there a way to trim off that area and then somehow reattach it to the camper? This awning thing is all new to me, but I can fix most everything else....

need to know which awning you have and then do a search on awning material for that brand

I know the awning I have on my 2306 can have the material replaced for about $200 to $250 if I had to do myself

depending on what material your awning is made out of you might be able to take it off and then to a upholstry place and have a new piece sewn in but dont think it would look right and most likely will come apart at that seam

what did you end up doing with your awning? Did you fix the tear? If so, how did you fix it? Thanks Fred
