My brother has a Coachman TT with a 24ft awning and the stitching where it slides into the roof slot is starting to pull away causing some small leaks. The rest of the awning is in really great shape so how would you fix this?

I'd take the material to a canvas/sail shop and have them restitch it. Eventually the rest of the stitching is going to give way and then he'll have a real mess to deal with.

Be careful how much is paid to have it re-stitched. I had the awning canvas replaced at Camping World after a tree put a big rip in it. Canvass was around $180 and about $50 to install.

It might be almost as cheap to buy a new one?

We took our 14' slide awning to a sail shop and they stitched it up while we waited (we did call ahead). Only $30. Of course, we live near the ocean and Chesapeake Bay, so there is a sail shop in every town. May be harder if you're land-locked.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions! As for taking it to a sail shop we live in Tampa Bay area so finding one of those shops is easy for him. However, did you remove the awning material and if so how and was it difficult? Appreciate all the wonderful help.

Realize this thread is over 5 years old but rather than start a new thread I have a similiar awning problem. The material at the very top of th vinyl has rotted and is starting to turn loose and I need to replace only the vinyl part of the awning. Has anyone have any experience in doing this and does it take special tools espicially to remove and replace it to the rollup tube.

Searched the internet and found replacement awning material at PPL in Houston fore $199. Now if I just knew how to install it. Anybody know where I might find it cheaper? Or how to remove and replace it. It's an AE from Dometic.
