There are plenty of RV junk yards you could begin with. Where you located? There was a thread I saw yesterday with a good link to RV graveyards.

I just replaced my A&E sunchaser II with a Carefree of Colorado Pioneer awning, if you had posted a few days ago I could have saved the hardware you needed. Sorry about that. Of course shipping would have been costly but the hardware would have been free.

I did the same thing a few years ago with my hybrid. First time we set it up, a wind gust came and blew it over the camper. There was a RV Store down the road who had a used pair. Check around, you should be able to find them.
