Bag Awning Repair
« on: July 06, 2017, 12:09:30 PM »
The thick plastic awning strip that attaches to the camper separated from the awning bag during our last camping trip with 40 mph winds.


80 lb braided nylon fishing line


A flaw in the original sewing is that the thread was cotton and one long piece so it was only a matter of time when one end started to separate.  I sewed it with an upholstery needle in 12-18 inches separate sections across the 16' awning.


Finished product.

Hi Joe,   Over the winter snow slid off my barn and hit a travel trailer and my pup.   The pup's bag awning took a beating.   I used a Super Stitcher with canvas treated string.   So far it held up for this season.  Ill try the spiderwire next.
Thanks,
Steve
