Hey Tom. I saw a pic that GingerBeef post of a like new Carefree awning that had the original sticker on one of the arms. I sent her an email to try to get the info so that I can get the proper replacement fabric for mine. If she sends it to me I'll forward you the info.
By the way if you run across any info please let me know. I have a 72 Globetrotter.

Look through the archives here. There were several that had links to installation and operation manuals of the old Carefree awnings.

If your in Denton....go to the tarp and awning business...located about 200 yards Westof I-35 on University. They made my replacement awnings...and it was reasonable, choice of Sunbrella fabrics, quick turn.

Carefree Awning for a Vintage AS

Thanks Melody. I am having a hard time getting this from Carefree of Colorado. The local RV dealers have'nt been able to help much either.

I know the place your talking about. Its just south of the railroad track.
