Well I ran my local hardware store out of upper poles, and I refuse to buy from big box.
I've got 6 sets of lowers done and I have enough uppers to do 4 more sets.
They'll have more materials next Tuesday.

Awning Poles Installed!!! I'm not going to paint them until I decide if I'm going to keep this camper or upgrade to something without canvass. They look great even without paint; much better than my rusting painter poles!

Thanks again Turbs!!!

I've got a member inquiring in "aluminum" poles.
Is there any other interest in having aluminum poles over the emt?

Price is over double of what I can make the emt poles for.

I'm not sure I understand the advantage of aluminum poles over the emt except perhaps the weight. I don't really see the weight as a big factor since they only seem to weigh a couple of pounds each.
