Pros and cons to both sides of the needed or not issue. I've seen the awnings dance in the wind gusts. If you aren't going to be present, tie it down or put it in. Your prices are realistic for the material and time involved, IMHO. I've made a set of brackets and poles myself of some different materials but, I had access to the means to make it happen

Still up for grabs:

1) "discounted" set of awning poles powder coated black with blemish.

2) aluminum set of awning poles.

Do you mean that you didn't have to buff it out on a wheel for 3hrs? That's some nice looking material, best I have seen.

Took about 5 minutes with mothers and a rag to shine one pole after taking 600 grit to it.

Installed my black powder coated set today on our Apex 288BHS. It's almost too easy to install these things!
