    Does anyone have any experience with Tough Top Awnings?

    http://www.toughtopawnings.com/

    They advertise a "better than OEM" replacement material for slide out awnings and based on the reviews, folks seem pretty happy with them.
    They offer two materials - a 15oz laminate (best for wind and rain) and an 18oz coated (best for snow).

    I'm looking to use them to replace the fabric on our main living room slide.

    Wondering if anyone has any personal experience...

      I ordered replacement slide awnings from Tough Top in August, 2015. Delivery was prompt as I remember, and I was able to remove the old and install the new with only a little help of a nephew. I don't remember having a choice of "wind resistant" vs "snow resistant" but probably would have chosen the wind one since I do not subscribe to camping in the snow.

      Here in North Dakota, we have consistent high winds and we had the camper parked at a lake lot the entire summer last year and there is no visible issues with any of these awnings. I did apply edge reinforcement, a clear scotch tape type product that seems to hold it together even in the highest wind.

      The price I paid was just over $400 for the three awnings, with 2 larger ones over the kitchen and dining room slides and a much smaller one over the bedroom slide. I just checked them last week after we had several days of consistent winds of 25 to 35 MPH. They still look like they did when I put them on.

      Hope this helps. Marv

        That's a fantastic review Marv!! THANK YOU!!
        My understanding is, the 15oz material is their "original" material (IE- what you have). The 18oz was added at the request of some customers that were doing alot of winter camping. (Dunno... I guess that's a thing....)

        I don't want to put words in your mouth... but that reads to me as a resounding endorsement.

        I placed my order tonight. As long as all goes well with my main slide, I suspect I'll do the same with my other three in the near future.

          I would say that I am happy with them. The awnings that came with our SunnyBrook lasted 8 years before I felt a need to change them. I am looking for these replacements to last at least as long as the originals.
