Are there pads on the ends of the pole where they would rest on the ground?

Yes the latest design has stainless steel pads approximately an
1 1/4" in diameter on the bottom pole.

Wouldn't that interfere with locking them against the camper?

By the way Turbs, your poles work too well. I was using them when it was really windy and i added some deflappers to stop the fabric from shaking. Yep, when I went to close it up I forgot to remove the flappers and bent my awning a little.

I can't believe I was able to leave my awning out in that breeze...they are awesome. I do not intend to ever use deflappers again though!

I don't leave my current poles on the camper. I use clevis pins to connect them to the brackets and store them in the forward compartment when not in use.

I am thinking hard about Turbs awning poles since my wife hates the look of the fiberglass painters poles.

Turbs, please PM me with the price for a set of black poles. Thanks!

You will love these so I say definitely order. A fellow camper stopped by last weekend and asked how I was able to order my camper with those awning poles from the factory. When I told them where I bought them he just couldn't get his mind around the fact that they weren't from the factory. They look so great.
