I have a slideout awning over the bedroom in a 2003 Adventurer 33V that is defragmenting, ie., lamination is pealing off. Lazydays here in Florida estimates 3 hours of labor to replace at $99.90 per hour for labor. This doesn't seem to be all that big of a deal...sort of like re-rolling a window shade. Anyone else have a history of having awnings replaced? Not really interested in paying off Lazyday's renovation costs in only one visit. Thanx.

I had 2 men replace a 15 footer over my slideout in about an hour and a quarter. This was in in Dallas, Texas and it went on pretty quickly.

3 hours labor might not be too far off the mark but $99 is certainly up there.

I personally think that $99 per hour is WAY off but that's exactly what Camping World in Statesville, NC is charging. SHEEESH- pretty soon I won't be able to have anything fixed if I can't fix it myself!

Airborne, just my two cents:
Sounds like LazyDays would get $300 from you, plus the cost of the awning.... If you've got a good stepladder, I'd say do it yourself. The bedroom slide awning is small, and can't be all that tough to replace. I would think you'd have the slide retracted, unscrew the old and replace with the new. Certainly I've simplified it, but this can't be rocket science. Why not call A & E and get "instructions" for the do-it-yourself R & R.

You don't say how old your coach is, but certainly call A&E and 1. see if they will do anything for you and 2. if not, get instructions from them. Good Miles

Have you thought about replacing only the material and doing that yourself??

Our '03 Brave has the same problem. The water proof layer de-laminated from the base fabric and was shreded by the wind. I would perfer to not use the same material as Winnie as it did not last even two years. There was a company that would replace the fabric during the FMCA in Perry, but mine did not need it back in March. Best I remember they wanted $200 per slide installed. Does any one have the name of a company that supplies the awning fabric ready to be installed on the original hardware?

airborne;

I recently had the large slide cover changed and paid $63.00 labor. Camping World advertises a installation charge of $64.00. Page 34 master 2005 catalog
