I need to replace the awning on my 5th wheel. I'm looking for a material that will clean easily especially from environment staining. I'm also hoping to find one where I can set the wind speed to retract automatically. Any suggestions and help will be appreciated.

All you can do is get a heavier material. There isn't anything that really cleans better but there are easier ways of cleaning what you have.

We have an automatic awning with Sunbrella fabric. The awning stays pretty clean compared to the stationary vinyl awning we had before like night and day.

Are y'all using plastic house gutters to cover the awning while in storage?

I bought less than $30 of plastic house gutter from the lumber yard. Works great so far.
Wish I had done it when the trailer was new.
