Hello marklo and welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums.
I would recommend you replace the entire awning for the cost difference of fabric and parts needed. Also the new awning will be preloaded so you do not have to worry about the process and danger of injury trying to repair the damaged one.
Good luck and keep us posted.
