Recommended manufacturers of slide awnings?

Need to purchase a new awning for a 14' slide on a 97 Holiday Rambler 40WDS.

Any recommendations on manufacturers to go with, or to avoid?

I'm a little concerned about getting the right one because the RV didn't have one on it when purchased back in Dec. It obviously HAD one at some point, as I can see the bolt holes/markings where it was attached, but I want to be sure we get something of good quality and reliability.

Thanks!

I just had my old slide topper replaced with a Carefree of Colorado. The carefree has a wind deflector and now the topper stays quiet in the wind. I have a full wall slide so it was not do it your self. And in my opinion it is at least a two person job.

Here's a shot of the slide (out) we need an awning for:



In 1999 I used to work for Smallwoods trailer sales and I did awning installations on race car trailers, but I've never done one on a camper or RV slide. I have no doubt it's a two man job, but I'll have good help should we attempt it ourselves.

Thank you for the response.
