Re: Good prices on Sunbrella?

A friend who builds awnings and upholstery for a living told me Sampson , PVC coated 3 oz dacron lasts far longer than Sunbrella, and is far cheaper ,as well as comes in greater widths . I've been using it for years for sail covers,berth cushions, wind vane etc, and I am extremely happy with it. Like any awning material ,black is the most UV resistant.
