I have a Carefree (20 foot) one touch with a metal guard (which the suggested source says only manual roll ups. Anyone suggest a source for non-manual rollups with metal guars??

I guess you get what you pay for!

No problem installing the new awning but learned an important lesson about reading all ads carefully. Great price on the material but something did not seem right on the valance. Sent pictures to the supplier and they replied with the following:
"With your specific fabric it was ordered on Sale Special. The sale special was due to the poly cord for the valance sewn on the wrong side. Due to this feature the fabric should be installed flipped over from traditional installation. If you install your new fabric with the reverse side up this will allow the valance to lay correctly on the roller tube."

Found the exclusion in the ad:
"When the awning is extended and you are under the fabric you will see the finished edge instead of the hemmed edge."
Of course, that means the seams will be on top but for $107.00 I guess I can't complain. Tim

I ran across this thread searching for awning fabric recommendations. The link above is dead. Just FYI.

when a link is found "dead", try deleting the suffix and look for the website without the link to a specific page.
