We have a new unit with the electric awing and wanted but could not get the old style awing with the pole supports." I gave them the info on this forum and to do a search for 'Old Coot'..... I showed the gentleman every piece and how they were fabricated by a master craftsman. He loved your user name and loved your poles too.
Thank-you OC.
Two thumbs up
No inquiries as of now. So glad they worked for you. Thanks again.

I love the idea. Ray
No poles, but I do have the Awning Pole Attaching Kits. Suggest using painter telescoping alum poles from Lowes/Home Depot. They have them 6'-12' which would fit the bill nicely.

OC, spent the day working on the trailer to get ready for starting our season soon. I had previously painted both set of brackets and got them installed today. Attached the poles to get the "travel position" holes drilled and then painted the outer poles as well as the inner poles that are exposed above the outer poles when completely collapsed. I painted everything gloss white and they look great against the awning arms.

Very much appreciate your work on this project. They look great and your craftsmanship is exceptional. Can't wait to show them off! Thanks again.

How soon before you have the poles again? I heard you are making another big batch of them.

No more poles, just the attaching kit to attach your own poles. Easier to use the 6'-12' alum telescoping painter poles from Lowes/Home Depot, etc.

Alum tubing is getting too expensive and too hard to find and the last batch I made and shipped, UPS tore up several tubes and lost the parts & poles out of more than one. Still have to make one pole assembly when the tubing gets here to replace one that UPS is storing whereabouts unknown to them or anyone else. Had to ship several replacement brackets, etc. that were lost also. Besides that, I'm just too lazy to make anymore.
