It's just the soft handle that came on the painting poles. I just shortened it for looks.

I used the exact same painter poles as offroad and stuck these on as feet. Shaving off the rubber hand grips from the poles was the most difficult part of the whole project. The built in hole step mech makes setup a 2 second afterthought.

Poles

I may be off base on this but from the picture you posted, the cabelas camping poles might work. As a portable and not permanent option. With a strap down could work. I have used the poles for years with tarps and they are very strong, light weight and height adjustable.

those look like they may work too, I am inn Ontario so I found that Canadian tire has them and they are already painted black per the picture so that will help out.

i painted up the brackets black to blend in and went with tent poles that are fully adjustable. I have decided to keep my poles stored under my bed instead of leaving them attached just going to use the D ring supplied by OCClick image for larger version
