Awning Replacement Costs

Hi,
My '04 Allegro 30DA is in need of new awnings all around. Having never had to replace these on my former RV, I was hoping I could get some feedback on relative costs for fabric, and installation. The sizes I need are: main awning - 14', LR slide out - 11', BR slide out - 7'. I found some decent prices on Ebay but I'm not sure if it wouldn't be less of a hassle to just let an installer do it all with fabrics included. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

The awnings aren't that hard to replace, there are YouTube videos showing how to do it. The labor cost is what you would save. Why not see about taking an awning off and decide if you want to tackle it yourself?

I would definitely do it myself if (1) I had a qualified helper, and (2) space enough to work in. I watched several of the videos on YouTube and it is definitely a two man job.

I did slide covers by myself on old '03 Adventurer. Bedroom slideout was around 6 feet, living room 14 feet. The original covers only lasted three years.

With free beer all things are possible.

I just replaced the fabric on my main awning (22ft) my helpers were my DW and my 45 yo daughter. Watched the videos and took us 3 hours. Could do it now in 2 or less. Also repaired my slide awning (14ft) which had slid toward rear about 4 ". Put slide out finished unrolling by hand,one person on each end and inserted a finishing nail to hold it and slid the fabric in place, removed the nail and put screw in to insure it would not move again. time 30 min. Do it your self after watching the videos a couple of times.
