Awnbrella awning supports

Has anyone installed a set of Awnbrella awning supports on a Sandpiper 5th wheel trailer? My 32QBBS has a 20 foot awning and it looks like it needs support when it's full extended out.
Also anyone installed a awning cradle support?

They are people that sell poles (Turbs) and supports (OC).

yes jamsr, I have used the awnbrella supports on 2 different 18foot awnings. They worked great. I kept the rvs in a seasonal site. I used 3 awnbrella supports and tied the ends down. The awnings were extended for the whole season. 4 seasons total. bought 3 sets of 2 supports between my brother and I. He used 3 and I used 3. 4 would have been better but 3 worked. Awning went thru storms and very high winds with no issues. One of the awnings was a manual and the other was electric.
I have 2 awnings on my present 5er. An 8 footer and a 9 footer. gonna use 1 awnbrella support in each and tie em down. Nice part is I can tilt the awnings lower on one end when I leave the camper or if I know it's gonna storm.

Go to the general page and the bottom is the classified section. You can find OC brackets and Turbs poles. Pictures and prices. They work. My suggestion.

You guys are missing the OP's point............he asked specifically about Awnbrella supports. they aren't support poles. They're for putting a bow into the fabric itself stopping the fabric from flapping and ever pooling water. They work perfectly for that scenario. You can also use the support poles with them.

They want you to install these every (4') for proper install,trying to (Clean) your awning with these installed is a Real Pain! Also even if you (Use/Install) these you (STILL) need to Tilt your awning for (Proper Runoff/Protection) or (Damage Can/Will) happen from Rain! Use support poles that you can Tilt/Adjust for Proper Runoff when you (SET UP) then you DONT have to WORRY with (Rain/Wind) within (Reason)! Your Call! Youroo!! Just remember the (Elect Awning) can go UP Over the Top also! Support for Safety!

Thanks for all the good information on the Awnbrella supports. I plan to install my next weekend.

Has anyone installed a awning cradle caddy and if so what is the easiest what to find a wall stud?
