If you are referring to slide-out toppers, they are made out of vinyl just like your awning. Most places that sell awning replacement material, also sell toppers of whatever size you need.

Sunbrella is a popular material that may be used.

Tough Toppers makes good vinyl DIY slide topper replacements. Their website has video instructions for installation and directions on how to measure.

They say 2 people can do it, but if your slide is relatively long, it's easier with 3 people.

tough tops

I just ordered an received from tough tops. Material looks great an end stitching is good. Service good. I just wish I had seen in their Add that they do not side stitch their awnings. If I had requested it they probably would have. My original awnings were side stitched and lasted 12 years. I believe my new ones will work fine while new, but not sure as they get older they night more easily tear.
