    Has anyone got experience of buying a replacement Fabric? I've overhauled mt F45i and it's looking pretty sheek but when wound out it's pants :Sad:
    Obviously I'm looking for rock bottom price for a 350 to fit myself

    I'v seen the boys with RVs doing theirs, and we had a RV on a site in Spain and they came on the site and did it for him, it might have been cheaper over there, but the company did it was more of a sun shade supplier, how long it last in the UK I would not like to say.:Eek!:

    Seen a few wrecked, so someone must do them. :Doh: Bob.

    You'd think the fabric would be the least of it considering all the extrusions and mechanicals but no! a 350 wide bit of cloth is well over €200 so obviously out of order IMHO
    I would hope to pay under £150 for the part or a suitable pattern copy

    speak to a local awning manufacturer or marquee/awning repair place or even a sail manufacturer dependant on whats local. Having had special canopies built for me in the past, i know that these type of companies can help out and produce a good copy of the original with better quality material and choice of colours etc.

    one place springs to mind, who make curtain sides for trailers, which can be screen printed so your imagination is the only limitation to what you choose:thumb:
