Also Baycrest Pacific is similar to Pacific Blue, also there are sellers on Ebay that have fab. made up for awning manufactures except zip-dee any color that you need. As I said before google sunbrella fabrics then yo will see sail rite web site & they have samples of fabs. for awnings. I would stay with sunbrella as it's lighter and more sun res. & water proof. not laminated as other fabs.

Agree with Featherbed - Sunbrella fabric is Waterproof and LIGHTER! And will last a lot longer than anything else!

Oh, and if you're not going for exact match... go solid color picking up any one of the colors from the other awnings.... much better WAF.

Of note,,,, in most instances, a person can only see one side of the trailer at a time...

I am going to hope that he has a solid color that matches one of the awning stripes.

You realize with a color change you risk angering the awning police

Zip Dee Awnings are made with Sunbrella Fabric. You can order "custom colors" from Zip Dee...we did on our chairs - our first trailer had a striped awning and one of the stripe's color solid chairs. It looked great and we always could spot our chairs in a crowd because they weren't the "standard-Airstream-fancy-blue-stripe".

You can also order extra Sunbrella fabric to match - I found it online for about $16 a yard and made zipper bags for our flag poles, wheel blocks, etc.
