Pop-top canvas replacement

Hi, next month I'll be making my way over to E10 Touring, they are located in the town of Wamel, Netherlands.
My caravan is booked in for two weeks to have a new canvas pop-top fitter, it'll be made to measure.
Once there I'll be asked to choose between the materials of the replacement,
either Ten Cate or ESVO, I'm thinking Ten Cate.
They have a large choice of colours, but I think I will go for Standard.

Alan, would going to a mid grey be an idea. It would still look in keeping, even original to all but those of us who are anoraks. It would give a bit of extra sleep time on the occasional bright mornings we experience.

If you start off light you can always go darker.

Can't do it the other way round.

The original canvas is a synthetic called "Sunbrella"

Hi Randa, Today I was over to E10 Touring to have the pop-top replaced on my triton.
The owner, Emiel Soetekouw, was please to introducé me to the workshop and explain
the types of materials used.
I was amazed at the quality and choice of colours.
My choice for material was ten-cate, natural colour, and the fly-screen was also offered in a choice
of either white, black or anthracite.
Just to be a bit different I went for the antraciet.


Before leaving, Emiel gave me an off-cut from the ten-cate material and one from the fly-screen.
He explained that my wife might like to see the choices I'd selected.
If anyone is interested, I'll post them on.

That was very good of you Dinky, but I wanted a material that was more durabel.
My experiance of Ten-carte material is that it's a very tough alternative to the original
stuff provided.
