The thick plastic awning strip that attaches to the camper separated from the awning bag during our last camping trip with 40 mph winds.

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.

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
