Cost of replacement cover for awning

Build list is due in two weeks on a 19 and still deciding on the awning. Being that the manual awning is exposed to the elements when rolled up, has anyone replaced their awning cover after ? years and what was the cost of a replacement cover? Thanks!

I have not replaced my awning cover after ten years, but from posts I've read, I think awnings in the southern US suffer more exposure to sun and deteriorate faster than here in BC.
The instructions say to clean using a soft brush and soapy water. I think some use cleaners containing bleach and don't rinse thoroughly, which can rot the fabric and stitches.

Our awning is 4 years old and shows no sign of age. once or twice a year I put 303 on it as recommended by a guy I knew who made custom awnings for boats.

I seem to recall one post. All the cover did was collect moisture and dirt.

Hey Glen Like you pointed out, down here in the South we're subject to additional solar stress on the awning. I'm trying to figure out a way to protect the thing.

The one referenced was commercially available. Try Google for Carefree of Colorado ( assuming that's your awning ).

It's what ever manual awning Escape installs on the trailer. I think it's a Carefree but I did not know Carefree made covers for the manual awnings. They have a crank out with a cover. Glen, leaving here in about 6 weeks and 4 days.
