RV Cover Repair

We have a real nice Adco cover that has developed some tears. Where the awning cvers are, air horn and the slideout covers. We have tried the patch kits and putting towels at those locations for added protection but they keep tearing through. I contacted a boat cover repair place that has done work for me on boat covers and some outside TV covers but he says the problem is that his machines are made for very durable material and it just shreds the cover material when working with it as he has tried woorking on RV covers before. I was planning on adding some durable material in the torn areas. Any ideas or hints? Thanks

A double layer of 10 oz canvas stitched in at the wear point, with leather at the place that causes the wear. It should last longer than the rest of the cover. :-)

That is right along with what I was thinking. Any idea where I could get this done?

I did it myself. My Mom would not have been proud of my stitching.
Perhaps an awning shop? Anyone that works with canvas. They may have some good ideas too.

A sail repair and fabrication shop. They have heavy duty stitching machinery and a supply of tough materials, grommets, etc.

Good ideas but the guy that does my boat covers says his machines will just tear up the cover working on it. I dunno, maybe he doesn't want to deal with it
