Best RV Awning Fabric for You
Whether you’re looking to customize your RV or just need to replace your awning fabric, it’s important to know your options before deciding on the best RV awning fabric for you. In most cases, RV owners must choose either acrylic or vinyl fabric. These materials offer a variety of advantages, such as durability and plenty of shade. They also keep their colors even with consistent sun exposure.
At ShadePro, we provide high-quality vinyl and acrylic fabrics for RVs, motorhomes, and campers. Both vinyl and acrylic are synthetic materials that are designed for increased performance compared to natural fibers.
Acrylic vs. Vinyl Awnings
The best RV awning fabric depends on your needs. If you use your RV or camper in a warm and dry climate, such as the American southwest, we recommend you go with acrylic awning fabric. If you use your RV in a more temperate or humid climate, opt for a vinyl fabric.
Due to the way the fabric is stitched, acrylic tends to be a more breathable awning option. This allows for fresh air to flow under the awning, resulting in cooler and less stuffy air. Although the fabric is breathable, it still completely blocks the sun; this makes it ideal for warm and dry climates. Acrylic is also great at repelling water, making it possible to enjoy the outdoors during a rainy day.
Vinyl is typically a tightly woven fabric. It is therefore extremely water resistant and provides excellent shade. However, since the material is so tightly woven, the area below the awning won’t be as breezy as an acrylic option. Vinyl fabric is also resistant to mildew, making it an ideal choice for someone looking for a low-maintenance option.
At ShadePro, we offer acrylic and vinyl awnings in various styles and colors to meet your needs. Our selection includes patio awnings, slide-out awnings, window awnings, and over-the-door models.
