    Worth contacting www.starspangledspanner.co.uk they do an awning repair tape for the American RV's. It will only be a temporary repair but may well see the season out while you sort a permanent repair/ replacement

    Yes, no doubt has suffered UV degrading..

    It's not a hard job, but needs two people and two pairs of steps. .. the link given by @funflair has a pdf with instructions.. have a read http://www.fiamma.com/download/reparation/changing_canopy.pdf

    I changed mine on my American RV.. and it's quite a job.. European awnings are much easier...

    I also tried repairing but it was just a waste of effort.. it was too old.. and kept tearing somewhere else..
