Replacing Front Tent Canvas

Hi, I own a '09 Roo 23SS--I recently had our front bunk door replaced by a non-Forest River dealer (due to delamination issues) and they tore the tent end, not bad-but they put 3 small holes in a perfectly maintained tent end. Now I don't trust anyone to work on it. How hard is it if I replaced it myself? Any idea how much a new tent end would cost? It kills me b/c this is the most vital part of my hybrid.
It seems the cable end is rubbing the tent and this is the cause. The door seems to be shifted too far to the one side.

I would make the dealer who damaged it replace it!

Rather than the time, expense, and frustration with trying to replace the whole tent end, could you possibly patch it, or get it patched? I would think that just getting a small piece of waterproof canvas and sewing/gluing over the holes would patch it, and would give you a double layer of fabric for whatever is rubbing, until you can get that figured out and repaired. It would at least get you through the rest of the camping season, and give you time to discuss with the dealer possible permanent repairs.
