Your poles were put on the jig last night.

Had to retool for your "special" requirements.

GOOD NEWS!
I think I have found and outlet for aluminum poles in 6 foot lengths!
1/2 fitting into 5/8 and 5/8 fitting into 3/4
I'm currently waiting for a shipping quote to see if these are feasible to make and ship to all you fine folks.

So if you've been wanting lightweight aluminum poles That "you" can polish hopefully I've found an answer.

More info soon!

Looks like aluminum poles shipped to your door will run $130.00
Could be less when I get the first set made and weighed for shipping.

Any interest?

The aluminum tubing I will be using will have about the same nominal thickness as the EMT conduit
The aluminum is .058 which should make these poles very lightweight and easy to handle!
I'm ordering materials in about an hour.
Contact me if interested.
Thanks to those who already have.

that's exactly what I need, something else to keep clean and polish...

I go camping so I don't have to work, not to create more work

I think that's why I got the awning poles, to save me all the hard work putting the awning in and out... that's hard work pushing that button

While I make jokes, i still think these are the best upgrade to camper you can make. Thank you Old Coot and Turbs for providing them. I have thought about getting another set so that when The upgrade bug hits, i will be ready
