Just had mine done on my trailer.  $980!!!!!!!!!  They are not cheap.  Any place that sells trailers and has a service center will do them.

Not sure what size Sonny.  My bro. in law barrowed the trailer and broke it so he dealt with all of the nitty gritty.  I just remembered the bill he had to pay and felt bad that it had happened and he had to pay so much.  What do you do I guess.  Good luck Sonny.  Make sure you look around.  I know my Bro in law had a lot cheaper prices but he wanted a warranty to go with it and so it cost a few $$ more.

I work at a major freight company and we have a TON of these things go across the dock. It is the most hated task at the place. They all need to be moved by hand and some nights I will move hundreds. These things are heavier than they look.

The outfit is called Dometic. I guess you could try to contact them directly. If you feel that maybe there was a flaw in the original,shoot them an email and see if they might be able to help you out. It's worth a try.
Pain is just weakness leaving the body.

I intend to live forever;so far,so good.

I lied...I never called them.
I did call a couple of other places (Cars in Hinton and Happy Camper in Edson) both wanted $1400 for a new awning.

Screw that since the old wagon is a 1977,not worth it.Can we say upgrade next year? ;D
