I purchased a set of the PVC poles from OC last year. I painted them white to match the awning arm and installed them in less than 45 min. (15 min was spent getting them out of OC's shipping container). I am very glad I purchased these. Nice piece of mind that they keep the awning in place. We beach camp a lot and being able to walk away for several hours and not worry about the awning is awesome. You won't regret the purchase.

Finally got the remaining 756 holes drilled in the remaining inner (upper poles) now to chamfer/de-burr, assemble in the outer poles, assemble kit, go to Lowes and get the shipping tubes, plywood for end caps, cut end caps, print the instructions and start shipping. Still quite a bit of work to do for an old lazy man. Hope the hardware gets here by mid week.

All the outer poles are drilled & chamfered. Now to de-burr the ends of all the poles, but that's for tomorrow. I QUIT (for today anyway) that's a total of 1900 holes drilled and chamfered (76 holes/pr x 25=1900)

May go to Lowes and pickup the shipping tubes and take TOWTA to the Golden Corral for supper.

Coot, I'll take the last pair if there not sold. Let me know the details when you have time.

Thanks,

Rick

Last batch of 25 OC Awning Poles are all promised

Well, Grayfox got the last set of my awning poles if everyone that emailed me previously takes them. Hopefully I can start shipping late this next week. I will email everyone to get a confirmation that they still want them.

Thanks to all 24 FRF members.

OC,

Just sent your our confirmation email, and followed that up with our paypal information.

I'm excited! We'll have them in time for our April 4th trip! Gonna show 'em off to our Texas "family of choice" campin' buddies!

YEEHAW!

P.S. If you end up with any un-confirmed orders, we may be able to sell a set for you to our TX buddies.
