Slide Out Topper Replacement

The material on one of My 7 year old Colorado Carefree slide out toppers has finally failed and I need to replace it. Given the tremendous wind and sun damage I'm surprised the fabric has lasted this long.

As best as I can tell the original fabric was the typical white Vinyl material. Replacement options available from Carefree are Vinyl fabric or Acrylic fabric. The Acrylic fabric will cost about $100 more for two toppers.

I have not been able to find any real description of the benefits of the more expensive Acrylic fabric. Which one is better and why????
