Awning Fabric

I have 1967 28 Ambassador, awning fabric was cut off the trailer and hardware by previous owner. Anybody know the best place to buy replacement fabric or should I just buy a new complete awning?

What type of awning is it? KNowing that, you can contact the manufacturer and order new fabric. I would recommend Sunbrella acrylic fabric. It costs more than vinyl but will outlast it by far!

You also might try a marine canvas shop if you have one close by. They usually have this type of fabric which is used extensively for boat covers, and they can surely make you a replacement canopy.

If it's a Zip Dee awning, I believe you can buy replacement fabric directly from them - they use Sunbrella fabrics. If not, you can still use Sunbrella fabrics to make your own or find someone to make it for you. There are over 100 colors/patterns to chose from ~
