I will say the ones OC sells are nice but when you can make something on your own that works, there is no feeling like it 😄

If you do take pic with phone in portrait " up and down" you have to slightly crop photo for it to be in the correct position.

I'll have to do that next time, yes it was uneven and the tree branches were actually under the awning. The camp maintenance guy came by and pruned them back a bit. When I added the screen room I had to put the door at the back as the tree was in the way as well.

I totally agree
It's a great feeling
Plus I've had others at different campsites comment and take pictures
That makes you feel even better

Nice job your solution will work as well as anything offered here at a much lower cost. I like your ingenuity!

I got these from Harbor freight 2-in-1 Support/Cargo Bar Modified the top mounted originally similarly to OP's method, got got new parts to mount it differently. These are adjustable so they worked good when the ground is uneven.

OP they look great and there is nothing like a job well done by yourself. When given the choice, it's self satisfaction and cheap with labor or easy, less labor and more expensive. I was lazy and even got Herk and DH to install mine with Turbs supervising.

That's what he does best, supervising Ms. Amy while she cuts and splits wood, cleans, waxes the camper, truck, cars, mows the lawn and works 10hrs a day as a nurse.

Wow does that sound familiar..... I wash and wax the rv and my truck (unless I pay the neighbor in beer to use his mobile detailing business stuff on it). I clean the trailer, load the trailer, drive the trailer and pay the lawn guy cause Dh won't mow our hills. And I also work as a nurse. I also make dinner, take care of getting dd bathed and off to bed etc. While a certain dh gets to watch tv and tell me she's up too late. Gotta love independent women!
