Vinyl and Acrylic Fabric Advantages

Whether you are buying a new RV and customizing it to your needs, or simply looking to replace your RV awnings, most customers are faced with the big question: which fabric type do I purchase? While Carefree fabrics are all high quality, one fabrics attributes might suit your needs and lifestyle better than the other, so here is a little information on each!

Vinyl Fabric

Vinyl fabrics come standard with standard vinyl Weatherguard, or you can choose from optional Alumaguard, Uniguard or FLXguard fabric protection for when your awning is closed.Vinyl Weatherguard is a heavy-duty section of vinyl that wraps around your vinyl when your RV awning is retracted. Road grime, UV rays and pollution won’t penetrate to the actual awning canvas, extending the lifetime of the fabric. Since vinyl fabrics are a laminated fabric, water will not soak through making them water-proof. Vinyl Weatherguard comes standard with most Carefree of Colorado vinyl RV awnings.

Vinyl RV awning fabric is mildew resistant, but not necessarily mildew-proof. Mildew, which forms on the dirt and dust that collects on a vinyl fabric, can be particularly troublesome in warm humid climates or if the fabric is stored when it is wet.

Acrylic Fabrics

Acrylic fabric is a woven cloth that allows air to circulate through the fabric. They can handle burning sun, drenching rain, freezing ice and snow, wicked winds,irritating dust and dirt, pesky bugs-you name it. The woven acrylic cloth can quickly dry and although not recommended, it is able to be rolled up when wet. Since woven acrylic is very breathable, the air constantly moving through the fabric means that the temperature under the canopy will stay cooler than under vinyl awning fabric. Since the patterns and colors are woven in the acrylic fabrics and not painted – you can trust that your canopy will stay vibrant for years.

Carefree of Colorado acrylic awnings are also protected with our exclusive, patented Alumaguard, Uniguard or FLXguard. Alumaguard is made up of several aluminum slats that hinge and wrap around your retracted awning canopy, providing unsurpassed protection for your awning fabric when not in use. Uniguard is a single piece of aluminum in the shape of your roller-tube, and wraps around your retracted canopy. FLXguard is made from a Carefree proprietary polymer-based material which has the look and protection properties of expensive metal wraps at an economical price. You must have Alumaguard, Uniguard or FLXguard in order to install acrylic fabric.

+ RV Patio Awning Fabrics

Vinyl Colors for RV Patio Awnings

Carefree vinyl awnings feature superior construction with the most durable vinyl specs in the industry. The lower portion of a vinyl canopy is usually brightly colored with stripes or fades. The top portion is called Weatherguard, and it protects the fabric from sun, scrapes and exposure when the awning is rolled up.

Weatherguard color options are shown on top; canopy below.

For Carefree’s Premium Vinyl, Dune Stripes, Shale Fades and Classic Favorites we offer scaled proportional fabric patterns to match window awnings to patio awnings. These fabrics feature proportionally smaller patterns to enhance the entire look of the outside of your RV.

Proportional Fabrics

These fabrics are shown as insets in the fabrics below.

Premium Vinyl Fabrics
