Question guys. Does this older awning have a spring on both ends? I feel the tension on the right side where the lock is but nothing on the left.
16 ft awning.

We just changed ours. We went with one from Carefree. Carefree fabric fits A&E awnings just fine. One reason we went with it was they are one of the few that offer solid colors. We wanted to get away from stripes or fades.

On our previous 5er we replaced using a Shade Pro it was kind of thin and had a pinhole in it when it arrived.
