WInd ripped ours off driving through SD. Insurance covered it. New arms, canopy and brackets, right around $4000.00

Our power awning was replaced due to bent arms from wind. We used the original fabric and roller. Cost was apx $2,200. Carefree has arm kits to fit most other brands. Sounds like you may just need the roller, so should not be as pricey.

Anything fixable. Just takes a lot of parts and lots of swearing. Then repairing the parts you got to replace parts that got broke.

Amen to locally owned shops. We have a great 'mama-papa' shop here. They may not always be the very best price, but they do the very best work. (No national brand name to protect their 'image'.)

luckily the park im staying at has a connections with a mom and pop shop. pop is coming out tomorrow to get an estimate for the insur co. he did tell me that the inco may try to use a depreciated value scale since its a 2001, rather than full value.

You mean the awning or the coach? I think the awning had been replaced at some point but the coach was in absolutely great shape IMO. I'm hoping this fix it right also!

Had the same thing happen to mine about 3 years ago. 18ft manual operation. My DW & I replaced it ourselves for approximately $800 delivered to the rv park we were at. Borrowed a latter and put it on in about 1 hour maybe 2.

Do a quick look on Criagslist.. I found an older one with terrific hardware for $25, then a brand new fabric for $200..

I agree. Get a couple mobile techs out there and have them give you an estimate. It should be a pretty easy decision on how to proceed from there.

It could be that all you need is a new roller tube. If that's the case, I'm with you. I'd just cover that myself and move on. I keep a fairly high deductible to keep the price of my insurance reasonable anyway... -Al
