Need advice on awning replacement

i have a 1997 windsport and i need to replace the awning fabric on patio and 3 window awnings.i need advice on a website that does both for a fare price.the one for the patio at a fare price does not make window awnings and ones that make window awnings are way over priced.i need a dealer that makes patio and window awnings(the material has to match).i dont mind paying a fare price for good quality.

We used Stone Vos to make our new awning toppers and window awnings. Fantastic results and great customer support. They don't install them, so you can either save the money and do that yourself (we did) or pay someone to do it. www.StoneVos.com

I will jump in and try not to hijack (too much). I too am looking to replace all awnings and have the same issue as the OP. So would you please share how much you spent with stonevos as they don't have prices on their website. I found material for my 12' awning for around $160. No matching window awnings however I might be able to live with it for the price. My research is that they only last 5-7 years. The sun is brutal here.

We paid $125 and $140 for our two window awnings, 58" and 118" long respectively for high quality acrylic with double stitching. Last spring we paid $820 for new vinyl awning toppers for our 4 slides (don't have exact measurements, but biggest slides are around 18 and 20 feet long and shorter ones are 6-7 feet each).

Do you know the brand of the awnings? If they are Dometic Elite or one of their lines, you might check with them - they beat everyone's prices on hardware and torsion springs.

Great advices!
An awning replacement may be necessary if your old, low-quality awning is faded or mildewed.

Another vote here for Stone Vos. High quality material at a reasonable cost.

Many folks also speak highly of a company called Tough Tops.

Stone Vos for me too. Great product and customer service. They personally delivered my order to our hotel while we attended the Tampa RV show. It was at least an hours drive for them. Beautiful slide toppers.

I had great service from RV Slide-Out Topper Awning Replacement Fabric Installation for slide toppers. Installed one myself and hired the other one done.
