Installed new slide toppers

I finally got around to installing my new slide toppers today. I've been putting it off thinking it was going to be ARPITA. Turned out to be just the opposite. Watched the Youtube video and got after it. An hour and a half later I was putting away tools and ladders, holding a cold one and admiring the fine job that DW and I had done. With all the extra time I had, I decided to wash the MOHO and start getting ready for our trip next week. The money I saved by doing it myself will pay for our trip to Indian Springs SP. Life is good.

I replaced ours about two weeks ago with the tough top awnings. Like you said, it was a easy project. I had enough energy left to finish waxing the motorhome.

I also replaced mine about a month ago with the Tough Top awnings. Same experience and surprised how simple it was with their instructions. Read the Carefree instructions before I read tough top method - it is clear that Carefree use a much more complex method to do the same thing.

I am totally computer illiterate which means I can't post a link. I googled "How to remove and install new slide out awning fabric" and got a Youtube video. It's about an 8 minute video with step by step instructions.

There is a video on the Tough Top Awnings web site. If you google tough top awnings, you should find the video on their site.
