Doc, don't know about price, but check out post #7 and the "Fabric" link on their page.

Isn't there anything that would soften it up? 303, leather balm, etc?

I still have 1/2 a gallon of Canvak from my boating days. Water resistant, Canvas preservative. "For retreating awnings, tarps, canvas, covers and tents."

I just replaced both toppers on our MA 3778. I purchased them from Ray at Tough Top Awnings. He's a great guy and his product is excellent quality and considerably "tougher" than the OEM topper.
This is definitely a two man job particularly on your long living room slide. The bedroom slide could be done by one person but two is better.

I did my slides a little different.After running the slide all the way out I rolled the cover the rest of the way out using a strap wrench and a screwdriver to pin the roller.When it was all the way out I closed the slide almost all the way in.I took out the locking screws and removed old fabric.After starting the new fabric I fastened a line to the fabric and ran it to the other end of the slide.I tied a bucket to the line and put some water in it for weight.Feeding the fabric in at one end while the bucket pulled the other end. I fed the new fabric into the tracks,replaced the locking screws,ran the slide back out and released the roller.With the job completed the bucket and I sat down for a refreshment.The bucket wasn't thirsty cause it was full of water so I had his drink too.

I did a similar thing when I helped a friend do an awning, except we used scrap metal from my back yard.

I replaced my first one a few months ago, took about 1 1/2 hours start to finish. I purchased my replacement from Ray at Tough Top Awnings. I was not sure what to expect in the way of quality, but after receiving the replacement, found it was a thicker material than the OEM was, and the seams were double sewn. If I have to replace another one it will be from Tough Top Awnings, Ray will answer question you have, and customer service is not lacking.

I replaced mine with this:
RV Slide Out Awnings, Replacement Fabric.
Fabric is heavier than Dometic.
I agree about the video. I replaced both my bedroom and living room toppers by myself in about two and a half hours.
