How Ray & Sandy Got Started Creating The Best Replacement
RV Slide Topper Fabric On The Market

A few years ago everything seemed to be going so well back in Iowa working for an electrical manufacturer, Square D company, when BAM... I learned my job was going to Mexico. After the shock wore off my wife, Sandy and I had to face the future. Although we're in our 50's we were in no position to think about retirement. Through a slow evolutionary process we were led to RV'ing.

As our family grew up we were fortunate enough to be able to vacation in the west usually in our fold down camper. Unfortunately for us our son and daughter headed west as soon as they were able to. Both of our children live in the Denver area. So after I got laid off there wasn't any reason to stay in Iowa.

I (Ray) decided to go into RV repair and earned my factory certifications from the Camping World RV Institute in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Early on I worked in Reno, NV, Durango, CO, Yuma, AZ, Loveland, Co, and the Seattle area. Subsequently I've run my mobile rv repair business (Ray's Mobile RV Repair) out of Iowa, Colorado, and Arizona. As you can see we're fair weather people and head to warm weather whenever we can.

Tough Top Awnings was born out of the need to address the failures of standard OEM fabrics. The business started out with a friend handling the production aspect of the business till it grew to the point where we had to take over the production in order to meet customer demand of the growing business. We sincerely appreciate the loyalty of our customers and are most serious about treating our customers as we would like to be treated.
