Yeah, was on the smart phone and didn't work. I went on my laptop and found the thread I think. Is it the 98 page one under the classifieds by OldCoot? It took me like 45 minutes to read through all of them. OldCoot is not shipping them anymore from what his post says. I couldn't really find any information on how to actually construct this mod or do we have to buy them from OC?

Neil sells the brackets separately from the poles. Many have used painters poles fr om lowes or HD to make the poles. He was shipping the sets including poles until UPS lost some of them. He no longer ships the poles out, unfortunately for members.

I picked my bracket kit up as I was in OldCoot's area last year (and he will not ship to Canada). Great guy and a very nice product. The instructions include dimensional data for the poles. I made mine out of readily available PVC pipe stock with a drill and common hand tools.

For the OP, I assume the awning 'option' is pretty much installed on any units the dealer orders for stock. Not sure if Forest River has an option for a manual awning.

I bought the Husky 4500lbs jack with 2 remotes for my TT, best investment period, no more sore shoulders and arms and in the heat I needed a shower after hooking up or unhooking the trailer.
