Carefree Awning Replacement

I need to have the fabric on both of my two Carefree awnings that go the entire length of the coach on the passenger side replaced. This is on my new to me 2008 Affinity. Any suggestions as to where to have it done, any experiences you have had would greatly be appreciated. I live in Michigan.
Thank you in advance for your feedback!

The best topper replacements are from Stone Vos. Chris T, the owner is a coach owner and is an expert about slide toppers.

Steve: That is helpful. Does he just sell the fabrics or does the installs too? Where is he located?
Thanks,

I second what Steve said, stonevos is bar none the best replacement material available.

Thanks,

Chris is located in Brooksville, FL, about 80 miles north of Tampa. He custom stitches the fabric to measure. He has researched fabrics and threads and only uses the best. He can email you a color chart and works to measurements you provide. His workmanship is top notch. It's possible he knows an RV tech in your area as he ships toppers all over the country. He has traditionally done Acrylic only but he just found a vinyl fabric he will use.

Give him a call.

Update

I called Chris on Saturday and talked to him. We have also exchanged a few e-mails over the weekend. It appears that he would be able to help.
Thanks, Steve, and all who chimed in.
