Tinted Window vinyl/screen replacement/repair

Have a tear in the vinyl window and screen left of door on my '17 sc. Actual canvas is not damaged. Contacted the manufacturer of the vinyl (ABC Industries) and they only sell in bulk to dealers. So I contacted several dealers and all of them say I need to replace the entire canvas - cost $2,100
There has to be a better answer here.
Does anyone have any advice? All that is needed is to fix the damaged section of vinyl/screen.

You might try a strip of clear "Gorilla Tape" on both the inside & and outside of the screen. That's what I recently did on a similar tare on my awning. Stay away from the Camco clear "Awning Tape". I've found that it yellows, and you'll be lucky if it stays stuck for one season.

I used sail patch tape. I figured if it could handle the stresses a sail goes through, it should be more than strong enough to handle the canvas on the popup. I taped both the inside and outside. I installed it in July 2018 and sold the popup in May 2020. It was still as good as the day I installed it.
