Carefree awning

I have the Eclipse XL Awning, my fabric is showing signs of fatigue, so I checked to get new replacement fabric only to find carefree has discontinued all parts for the XL awning.
Has anyone found a replacement fabric or someone that will make a replacement? or, has changed out the entire awning to the 8ft. , my hardware still operates ok.
all responses welcomed. .

I had excellent service from them. Shipped within 2 days of ordering and an exact fit.
It came with complete installation instructions.

I had a couple of cuts in my rear awning fabric. Got it through CareFeee - $750 + installation. I went on their website and looked up my coach year and model and it displayed exactly what it had on it when it was built.
Good Luck!

I ordered new fabric for the slide covers on our '02 DSDP from ToughTop. I thought they were relatively inexpensive and good quality. Easy to install if you followed the instructions.

Call Chris at Stonevos.com in Florida. He makes toppers not sure about awning fabric. He has top quality materials and can match your fabric.

There are a number of awning shops around that should be able to fit something for you.

I second this, Chris made our 4 window awnings and patio awning and I'm very happy. This was in March and I had them to measure for the slide toppers which are waiting for us now for the 22nd.

Chris made new toppers for our coach and the difference in quality between what he made and the OEM Carefree fabric was remarkable. Whenever we need to replace the awning, we will certainly be using his.

We do have the xl. I believe Chris called our color champagne. It is a beige. He was very familiar with the OEM colors.
