When looking for a replacement fabric for my "Carefree" awning, I thought I would take advantage of my 'Good Sam' discount and see what 'Camping World' had to offer.
$350 installed. $254 not installed. That was with the GS discount. But we don't stock it so $130 for shipping. Why $130 for shipping? "It has to come semi cause the tube is to long to ship otherwise". I just want the fabric not the roller. Can't they just fold it and put it into a box. "You would never get the crease out".
So I tried a couple local SOB stores. None of them stock replacement fabric. Shipping about $100.
So to the wonderful world of on-line shopping I went. "PPLmotorhomes.com" They had a universal for $187 plus $9.99 shipping. The same color and pattern and material as the Carefree from Camping World For that price I will try to iron out the folds and deal with it if it doesn't iron out.
Wait it gets better.
I was expecting UPS or FedEx. I got an email that it was being shipped by SPEE-DEE Delivery. Those white trucks the same size as UPS.
Well to my surprise the truck pulled up and out walks the driver with this 9 foot tube. With "Carefree" written all over it.
I can't wait to install it when I get my Argosy back from being painted silver to match my Truck. This blue awning and the Airstream Blue rub rail insert I bought will look great.
All I need now is to talk my better half into a blue strip on the truck with a tonneau cover to match the awning.
