Awning Replacement
« on: June 23, 2020, 08:48:26 PM »
Has anyone replaced their awning on a 16 TBS?

If so, what did you buy and where did you buy it?  Where did you take it for the installation?

Thanks.

I replaced the awning on my 21BHS with an awning from Tough Top Awnings.

It is an excellent product, much better than the original.

I installed it myself.  They have How-To videos on their site.  Not hard but be careful of those springs.

Our 16TBS awning is shot after 6 years. Too badly moldy and stinky to save. Looks like djsamual found a good replacement.

Got some intel:  BigDuckCanvas.com

They specialize in heavy duty marine UV resistant fabrics.  A neighbor at our rv resort here bought the material and took it to a upholstery shop to have them do the hemming of the edges.  He said it was no more expensive overall than buying a pre-made cheaper quality awning.  He also had a few extra inches added to the front flap to get more shade.  Looks fabulous.

good find. I used the custom shop locally to have a bimini and cabin done up for the boat. Great to keep $$ in the community.
