Comparing our Off-White, Champagne & Sand Colors September 26 2018, 0 Comments

We at Tough Tops do our best to address questions we get from our wonderful customers to make everyone’s user experience with us the best it can possibly be. One question we get often  is also one that is sorta tough to answer: “What is the difference in color between our off-white, champagne and sand colors on our 15oz. fabric?”

First off we have stated that our colors do NOT match A&E Dometic or Carefree of Colorado! The Tough Top colors of off-white, champagne and sand are not far off from each other, but they do have different color shades and this can be important when trying to choose the right color for your needs. On our website we do have color swatches and we also overlay those colors over an awning to give you an IDEA of what the color may look like on your rig.

The Tough Top Awnings website showing colors


We sell 95% of our awnings through our website and this means most of you are seeing the awning colors though the eyes of your computer. And for those who have computer knowledge know that computers show you color differently depending on the room light and glare... BUT more importantly by the color calibration of your computer monitor. We put this to the test one day at our offices and saw that the color swatches on the website slightly varied from the three computers we had in the office.

SO, WHAT TO DO? To be honest, the computer calibration has not been a big issue but wanted to bring it to everyone’s attention….most folks just want to see the differences in the shades between the three….So below are the three colors next to each other for comparison. If you still are not sure, the next step would be to contact us and we can send you a fabric color sample so you can see the color in person to make the right choice.

*** If you are concerned or interested in the calibrating of your computer screen….First off I would go to a website you know and have a good understanding of the colors….for example, if you shop at Target, go get a Target bag or newspaper ad and compare the red color of the logo with what’s on your screen…if it’s off you know your screen needs calibrating….here is a link to help you out.
