    Awning fabric is a consumable.
    I have replaced it on all of my trailers.

    My previous 5er's awning lasted 6 years and stains aside was in great shape. It was used almost every trip as well.
    3 years is way way too short for an awning that's hardly used to deteriorate.
    Wondering, do you live in a sunny hot climate? Pics would help.

    When the awnings are rolled up they will get wet. Would not being put out to dry off and staying wet rolled up most of the time cause it to start fraying.

    Exc point. Even with the awning roll up cover they still collect water.
