Re: Canterbury Pitt Candy Stripe fabric...

Dormobile does a similar candy stripped roof material, it is more like goretex with a honey comb. I have a dormobile roof and a canterbury pitt door canopy and the CP one is a tougher canvas but the stripes rubbed off after some cleaning :cry: I'd be interested to see what replacement you find. :lol:
