RV awnings can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years, depending on the type of material and how often they are used. Maintenance is essential to keep the material in good shape.
Replacing the fabric is the most common repair for an RV awning, unless there is severe damage.
RV owners should clean their RV awnings regularly, using a bucket of gentle soap and a small amount of bleach mixed in with dish soap. Regularly inspect the fabric and make plans to give it a good scrub down soon. Don't use harsh chemicals, as they can damage the awning material and reduce its life expectancy.
