Slide topper replacement

After 4 years, my Camelot slide toppers are beginning to show signs of needing replacement. I've reinforced all the threads and seams, but my largest topper is starting to tear. Coincidentally, that topper always holds water, putting more stress on the fabric.

Anyway, I have read but can't find back recommendations for topper fabric. I believe there is better stuff than the OEM fabric.

Give this guy a call:

The owner, Chris, is a Monaco owner and will give you a small discount. He uses the absolute best fabric and thread available and he is proud of his toppers.

Ditto. Recently had a set from Chris installed and tech doing the work said they were the best he'd seen.

X2 on Chris Throgmartin. I ordered a set of 4 toppers and installed them last week. He did a great job and his thread is supposed to be the best in the industry. He is also very accommodating.
