Check locally I bet you'll find a powder coater !

And the wait time maybe 2 weeks.

Food for thought when I'm "actually" making poles for stock and not directly shipping them out right off the assembly line.

Cost effective??? We are talking RV equipment. Right? I might contend there is nothing cost effective about an RV.
My guess is chrome plated ones would sell. ??

A nice antique bronze would match some of the newer tan colored units.

Thanks Turbs got poles today and installed looking good. I'll post pics later. I will be painting them later next week. I think it might have taken longer for you to make the shipping box vs. awning poles, nice work(on both)!

Finished up 4 more sets late last night.
Had ball games all week.
Headed out this afternoon for the weekend and will get more poles shipped out the first of the week.
More materials should be in Tuesday or Wednesday to start all over again.
