Default Zip Dee Awning Help

I need to replace the original curbside rear bedroom awning on my 1985 PT36 that was removed previously. I am travelling 1500 miles from the Bird this week, so I am unable to check documentation for size, model, color, etc. Are these a standard size and style that I can request from Zip Dee? The others appear to be an original blue and white striped fabric. Anyone have the official color/fabric code? Thanks!

Tell ZipDee the pattern/color...they either have it, or won't. I was able to get the pattern/color pulls for our awnings this past month. I suggest measuring your coach...you don't want more holes in the side.

I certainly would not order without making actual measurements first. I was hoping to see if similar awning assemblies are still available, and an approximate cost.

Go to sunbrella.com. Zip Dee uses only Sunbrella fabric and all of the available designs are on their website.

Got it, thanks. I believe the fabric is their "Pacific Blue Fancy" but I will make sure when I get home on Friday.

Go to their website and look at the various colors offered.
Got our bedroom windows from them in the brown color we wanted and the price was around 330 bucks.
Easy install.

Thanks, Bob. That is the approximate dollar estimate I was seeking. I will call them after I get back home later this week.
