Awning canopy protection

My Carefree Travel'r canopy has reached the end of it's useful life. I plan on upgrading the new canopy to premium vinyl and add a canopy guard. Carefree has 3 options for the guard (FLXguard, Uniguard and Alumaguard). I would appreciate any opinions on which guard is the best and any problems anyone has experienced with the guards.

Myself, I like an awning that when rolled up it is secured inside an aluminum roll, which my Southwind had. When rolled up, it's protected from the elements. After a rain, you should open to let it air dry the ends, they seem to get damp. JMHO, good luck.

Both our Dutch Stars had the A&E aluminum roll up covers over all the awnings. Wouldn't have it any other way. The present rig has both Girard and Carefree awnings but they still totally cover the fabric with aluminum when rolled up.
