    You might try Ebay for a used one.

    This is who we used and we love it.

    I need a new zipper on my bag. It's been sun damaged and the bag may need to be replaced too.

    Can you tell me a bit more about your experience with ordering from that company.

    I went this afternoon to my local Coleman dealer (Little Dealer Little Prices) and was told it'd cost a bit more that hundred bucks to replace the zipper, about 150 to replace the bag with a new zipper or about 365 to replace the entire awning.

    I need advice as maybe it be best to just shell out 200 dollars from this company and get a new unit.

    Cabot, you can go on EBay and buy a brand new awning, bag, poles an all, including shipping for around $135.00 for a 9 foot.

    WOW, sounds to good to be true.

    Is the "rail" on my popup standard and is it as easy as sliding the old off and running the new one thru. I'm just a bit nervous as no repair has ever been simple.

    Thanks McCullah for the tip and I'll be sure to call up that dealer.

    I called them and spoke to the seller, he confirmed that the rail is standard in the industry. I'm ordering one today. Looks too good to pass up, an opportunity to replace a 16 year old awning complete with poles and bag for 135 bucks. I'll let you all know how it all works out.

    Thanks again for such a great tip!

    Sounds like this seller only has a few left. So hurry and don't delay if you're looking to replace or upgrade.

    Mine arrived Thursday but I wasn't able to unpack and mount till last night.

    Looks great having a brand new awning bag in place of that old schwaggy one. Makes my camper look that much better. Thanks for the tip!

    W'ere going camping in two weeks and I'm looking forward to having that shade under the Arizona sun!

    How is your new awning working out and how long was it from when you ordered it to receiving at your door??

    I ordered it on June 28th, it arrived after the July Fourth Holiday, on the sixth. So I'd say quickly and if you need it sooner, call him and pay for overnight. That is if he still has them. I was left with the impression that he only has a few left.

    We've only mounted the awning bag on my camper. Been busy with family activities. But it's a brand new awning/bag with new poles in a well packaged box fit for FedEx shipping.

    I'll unroll and open it up when we head for the mountains next weekend. Right now our location may change, due to a forest fire that has since burned 1,800 square acres of the Coconino.

    But I was already planning on providing a bit of feedback here after next weekend.

    Cabot-

    I ordered one yesterday. They only had a couple left. Great deal at $135 and they already shipped it via Fed-ex. Should be here next week Wednesday, just in time for heading up to the S. UT Mountains!

    I'll post an update when I return to state how it works out.

    The awning is great.
    It was easy to set up. I was able to roll it and zip up the bag by myself.

    I'm that much prouder of my popup, it looks great!


    Great tip, thank you!
