I'm interested in a set of poles too. Tired of reeling in my awning every 20-minutes. Located in Pennsylvania. I have a Rockwood 2306.

I did not know somebody was making them. Bought my materials @ Lowes...took a day to make(drilling all the holes took the longest). Cost was approx. $20.00.

I bought a short piece of 4" PVC and cut it length wise....about 5 " long. Glued that to the 1 1/2" pvc pipe that you use for the height adjustment. I then use a a tie down strap that goes over the awning tube on each end and back thru one of those big screw anchors that goes in the ground. Pull the strap snug so it tight against the saddle and it does not move. Had it the wind a few weeks ago and everything stayed very snug. Also drilled a hole in the 2" pvc pipe at the bottom at an angle and can drive a tent stake thru it to hold it in place.
