Got more into it than came out of and it's better "organized".

Turned it around on the road and now it is up to wife to get her loaded for our next trips.
And the awning poles that should be stored on the awning arms with only 10 minutes work are still stored in the bumper. Procrastination to the nth degree.
Or is it called something else?

5 minutes with a dull hacksaw is all that is needed. He's only had them a little over a year. Guess he doesn't want to rush into anything,

My father in law even had his grinder. He cut threaded rods, square tube and a punched piece of metal. We did all sorts of things. Just ran out of time for the awning poles.

As for Coot's poles- I think I'm going to hold out just to irk the old man.

You ain't going to irk me, it's not me that has to get them out and put them up and take them down and store them every time. You spend more time one time putting them up than fixing the problem. Just saying common sense says spend 5 minutes to cut one inner pole off and be done with them. I don't have to do anything with mine other than remotely deploy the awning and tie it down.
As my old mammy use to tell me, "Son, you're cutting your nose off to spite you own face"
To each his own.

Arrived home from 2 weeks out. Empyted camper of all clothes/food. Washed the hugs off the front and scrubbed the whole camped. Washed the TV and unloaded the bikes and such. Now planning on pullout basement storage system. What to eliminate all closed bins speeding setup.

Heck, DH had to cut off and re-drill holes on one of our sets, due to it hanging down past the wheel skirts when stowed, and he STILL got it done within a couple of weeks of receiving them. And he definitely is no "metalogist".

I LOVE seeing peoples' reactions when we pull into a truck stop to gas up, then the questions start. WHERE did you get those! Self storing even!

Newp, these were made especially for US! But you can get the brackets and make your own poles!

Just wait 'til they see our pin box and ladder mounts for the satellite dish!
AKA my "satellite dish thingamuhjigs" (spell check has a heart attack every time I type that)

Now, I need some clarification here. What exactly are you people doing with your camper?
