Carefree Awning Replacement Fabric - Seams?

We are seeking to replace the fabric for our vintage Carefree Awning and have a series of questions about sources of fabric and appropriate seam types.

_Suggestions for sources of replacement fabric would be much appreciated.

_Also, regarding seams required to make up the full width of the retractable roller awning, I understand that there are two types of seams that can be used; a) sewn seams, and b) radio frequency RF welded seams.

__ Any suggestions as to the better type of seam, regarding durability, and ease of fitting the seamed fabric into the roller as well as people who are available to seam the fabric together would be much appreciated.

Perhaps you might look at

They have large inventory and good prices. I bought 30' of 72" wide 10oz. duck for $50 to cover my tiny foam & canvas camper (see my Member Intro thread).

I ordered mine for my 72 from carefree last year. A little pricey but it is awesome. It was easier to install than I thought as well
