No matter what season it is, a high-quality RV awning makes your adventure even more enjoyable. Unfortunately, weather and animals tend to take a toll on your fabric over time. This begs the question, can you get custom replacement RV awning fabric made? Let’s take a closer look.
What Are Your Awning Options?
Unfortunately, awning fabric is not a “one size fits all” situation. Since RVs vary in size, shape, and style, so do their awnings. The good news is, “Yes, you can get custom RV awning fabric made.” The important thing is to find the right company for your needs.
When replacing your RV awning’s fabric, you will need to evaluate the following factors.
The type of material you decide to invest in should primarily depend on your traveling habits. Let’s take a look at vinyl and metal, two common awning types.
Vinyl Awning Fabric
Vinyl fabric is probably the most popular because of its advantages. It is waterproof, durable, and scratch-resistant. Additionally, it is durable against the elements. Vinyl tends to fade over time, but it is easy to clean with warm, soapy water.
Acrylic Awning Fabric
Acrylic awning fabric is not waterproof. However, its breathability makes it a little cooler, which is a perk for travelers who enjoy visiting warm climates. Acrylic fabric is not quite as durable as the other types, but it is easily washable and holds color extremely well.
Now, obviously a metal awning does not classify as “fabric,” but it does act as a shield. Many people use metal awnings as a permanent form of fabric as it naturally holds up better against the elements. If you prefer multiple layers, you can purchase custom fabric to go over your metal awning, which protects it from scratches and dents.
Your awning fabric provides a great way to increase the “curb appeal” of your camper. Choose from a wide variety of fun colors to brighten up your adventure and make your RV accessories attractive as well as functional. In some cases, you can even get custom photos printed on your awning fabric.
Most travelers require custom RV awning fabric due to their awning’s size. It is important to know the size of your awning so that you can request the correct fabric. At RV Awnings, we offer fabric for the following sizes of awning.
- 12 ft
- 14 ft
- 16 ft
- 18 ft

Figuring Out the Size of Your Awning
If you aren’t sure how big your awning is, don’t worry. We’re here to help! To calculate the size of your awning (and the size of your replacement fabric), simply measure from the center of one awning arm to the center of the other awning arm. However many feet there are between the arms is the length of fabric you need to order.
