You can visit RV GEEKS on YouTube for videos on how to do this yourself. They also have a link to a company that custom makes replacement material. If you order from, Tough Top Awnings and enter the discount code of RVGEEKS5 you get 5 percent off. The quality of the material is exceptional and the process of replacing awnings/slide out covers is easy but it helps to have someone to assist you. Getting up high to slide the material into tracks benefits by having an assistant.
I replaced my slide toppers on one side last year and the look was so good I replaced the other side last week. I opted for a slightly different color material and really like the change in appearance.
