Thanks Bob, much better.

Just curious which material is better: vinyl, or acrylic? I also can't find what kind of material they use at Tough Top. Does anyone know? It looks like good stuff, but am really unsure. And a 5-year guarantee is decent enough. Although our OEM awning has lasted over 8 years.

I'm going to have to replace our main awning this spring, and looking for the best material. And since it's a 19' awning we'll be having it done. I'll have to do some checking on that too.

TIA for any advice and/or answers. I know the answers for which is better: acrylic or vinyl have probably been answered before. But this thread is active and I'm feeling lazy. [emoticon]

The best awning I bought was a Care Free with the acrylic material. I Replaced the awning material with vinyl on my present trailer to save money. BIG mistake
