Best slide out replacement fabric

Need to replace all three of my slide out topper fabrics. What is the best fabric to use acrylic or vinyl? Who makes the best?

We bought ours through Tough Toppers this past winter and they installed just like they said they would and look great. We did 2 toppers for a little over $300. RVGeeks has a video on it also and if you use the RVGeeks code you get a discount.

Acrylic is the best fabric! Stone Vos sells a high-quality acrylic and uses a premium weatherproof thread to sew it. You will pay more for it but the quality is unsurpassed! Well worth the extra cost!

I didn't think Tough Top sells acrylic fabric. I just looked at their site and all I saw was vinyl.

I would not use vinyl.

I've heard nothing but good things about Stone Vos.

We also used Tough Toppers. Nice fabric and the installation went well.

Another vote here for Stone Vos. High quality fabric and workmanship plus outstanding customer service. IIRC, all four of my toppers (and two of them are big) was just a tad over $600. Perfect color match heavy acrylic fabric.

I did as well. Very happy with quality, support, pricing and delivery. Installation went well and it was my largest topper.

Our replacement slide toppers are from Shade World. The previous owner of our coach bought them for us prior to the purchase and I installed them.

I'm not a big fan - there are a number of pin holes in the fabric after installation, especially on the full wall slide, and the fabric seems stiff and rather brittle. They were brand new and custom made, and I don't have any other experience with slide toppers, so my opinion is based on very limited information.
