Awning fabric replacement

I have a 2016 185 FQ FLYTE. It has 12í motorized awning. The Florida sun is taking its toll on the awning fabric and I have replaced quite a few awning fabrics in past on other RVs. It has the Solera elec awning on it and my question is, do I have to use the replacement from solera at 3 times the cost because only listings are with roller tube included or can I just order a fabric the right size and install as Iíve always done before. All the fabrics Iíve ever gotten before came with 2 diameter sizes for cord to be installed in fabric. The only diff I see is not having the option of installing the LED light strip in awning fabric up at top like original was, but I can deal with that another way. Hope Iíve explained this property. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply, what Iím trying to find out is do I have to use the Solera brand awning replacement fabric or can I just order a new 12í fabric of other off brand make. I donít see why not, but mabee Iím missing something. The only way Iíve found Solera brand is with the roller tube too. Donít understand why one would have to replace roller tube too ? As I said Iíve replaced quite a few awning fabrics before, and when I looked today for a replacement all I see is ďwith tube tooĒ.

I guess I replayed too soon ! I watched the YouTube link you sent and it looks like I can get by without having to buy Solera fabric. Thanks for all your help.
