OC's Awning brackets

Turbs Awning poles

These two items put together work well. Many bug the brackets and then use painter poles for the hold down poles. I like these because they come predrilled and with everything you need except a rivet gun and rivets.

When I made mine, I used 6063 Aluminum on the poles which was a little bit more expensive. The brackets were milled from a block of ABS. All the holes in the tubes were put in on a Bridgeport. The whole system was a government job made during some slack time. It turned out very well. No plans of making a production out of it though

I've got a question regarding these tie downs. How much wind is the awning material itself going to withstand before the awning needs to be retracted? Even though the awning frame is well secured, the material is going to catch the wind and, being flexible, will be flopping around somewhat. It seems that at some point, maybe just short of a gale, it is going to either rip, tear, or pull out of the channel at the trailer. So, at what point do ya'll go from 'oh, don't worry; it's no problem' to 'Oh crap!'?

I really do not know, common sense should tell you that. If the wind was over 30 plus and depending on the angle of it hitting the awning I guess a person would know. I know I have been in that much wind and really didn't have problem with material If it got much higher I don't think I would test it. I like to be next to the BIG BOY'S MH that I can use as a wind block. I have seen all kinds of awning supports on this forum and they are all 100% improvement. But I will give credit were credit is due, Thanks for the idea OC on pole support instead of just tying them down. Tying them down just bent your roller and caused a lot of banging been there and done that.

Thumbs up Awning supports today's project

I like it simple. Two 5 gallon buckets from Home Depot filled w/water strapped to the awning and just barely touching the ground.

Ya gotta store the buckets, those of us with poles don't have to remove them or store them, they store on the awning arms.
