1" sch 40 electrical conduit and 1-1/4" sch 40 electrical conduit that would be good material for poles. Would have to paint them, but should be plenty strong.

If someone wants to be the guinea pig with a set of poles made with the electrical conduit, I'll make a set for $75 + $10 shipping tube + UPS. PM me.

Try to pay for the new tires now I see! You might have to change the "sold out" in the title.

Picked up the electrical pvc conduit yesterday after getting new Marathons mounted and making a set of tie down poles. I think they will work great, lighter in wt, but pretty stiff due to the size. Should take paint real good. Anyone want to be the first to buy? $75 + $10 shipping tube + UPS. Ship tomorrow.

Why would you sell it within a month? I'd take the poles off the trailer to put on a new one and paint the pvc ones and put them on the month old trailer. Don't know about the stow brackets yet. They have to be wider than the old ones.

With 219+ posts the new item for sale might be better off in a new classifieds ad. You could add a link in the new ad to this discussion too.
