Default Custom Awning

My awning is ripped, and I have decided to replace it. I would like to do a custom awning, but I haven't found anyone out there that advertises for that type of stuff.

Anyone have any ideas?


Thanks in advance.

If you have Zip Dee awnings I would deal with them for custom work. I'm sure they would recommend you replace the first leaf of the roll over cover with the new awning attached. Much easier to install a new awning with the first aluminium leaf already attached.

So would they do custom colors and designs?

I've got a good idea on how to change the awning out...I'm just needing someone who can make one that can be seen from above. (airplane/helicopter)

Matt I don't know if they do custom one-of-a-kind. I mention the OEM factory because I do know that a lot of people have been happy to have their new fabric factory installed on the first aluminium leaf as it was much easier to install the new awning to the original equipment.
