Replace the existing Slideout Topper fabric?

Has anyone had to replace their slide out topper fabric? On this 2008 Seneca I purchased, both slide out toppers appear to have been cut for some reason, and they're kind of tangled inside their holders. It's been way too cold to try to get them out, so I was going to wait until I got to Florida in March to change them out. But I wanted to order them and have them ready to install. Does anyone here know where to get them? I found some on ebay that look pretty decent for $99-$109 shipped. I guess I'm just looking for OEM so I don't have to worry about guessing the exact size. Every email to Jayco has been replied with the old "Check with your local Jayco dealer." with the exception of one. ugh.
Has anyone here changed them out? Was it hard to do?
Thanks for your assistance!

I haven't installed the fabric. While looking for info on how to install the topper came across this on Youtube.
It may give you some idea

That was excellent! Thank you! It didn't look too complicated. Ours may be a bit more complicated due to the cover that the material/fabvric rolls into, but I figure that it has to come off somehow. I really wish I could find out who to order the oem fabric from.
Thank you for the video!

I had to replace the slide topper on my Seneca a few years ago. I had the dealer do this because it was a full wall slide. The original topper was by CareFree and that is where they got the new one for me.

It was 21 feet long.

If your toppers aren't completely rotted away you should find a label on the end that is rolled up. It will have the CareFree code on it so you will know exactly what it is.

Toughttoppers is the way to go. I replaced my front slideout fabric. The fabric from tough toppers is so much heavier. Their website shows you how to measure & install. Need 2 people to install new fabric.

Can't wait for Spring

+1 for heavy duty fabric. The topper was probably badly ripped by leaving slide out during heavy winds.
