Vertical supports for my awning

We are in a windy area and because of that I am running the electric awning in and out often when at most times I would like to leave it out. So I would like to support the awning in the extended position with poles then strap the awning down to our concrete pad. I see where folks have made their own supports out of 2 different size aluminum conduit but I have limited tools here. What commercially available support poles are there out there and what are your experiences?

I got a setup from Old Coot which is great and well worth the cost. But instead of using the lower brackets and leaving the poles on all the time I made some sockets that accept the large screw in ends of the painters poles from Home Depot. I then got a couple of good paint rollers from HD (the green ones) and cut the handles off. The handles are hollow so I filled them with epoxy. I then drilled holes in them and attached them to the upped brackets just like you would the poles you see people do. When I arrive at the camp site I get out the poles and screw them in. I also attach the hold down straps. I attached a small hook to each strap end and put it on the Old Coot awning bracket with one of those long reach grabber things. Works great and has held in 30+ MPH winds just fine. Side benefit is that I still have the unaltered poles to paint the high walls in the house and put up the Christmas lights.
