Awning Replacement Advice Needed

I purchased a 2000 Damon Challenger a few years back and it needs a new awning. A few questions: where would you recommend buying it, tips on installation (manual extending).
I am a licensed aircraft mechanic so I realize it's not that hard but prior experience sure shortens the learning curve.

Do you need the complete awning or just fabric replacement?

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.

Good luck
