Fyi I've got enough brackets from oc to make poles to those I have promised and then we're out of mounting brackets till we can get some more made.
Oc and I have sent the specs out to two companies last week and are awaiting cost figures before we can get some more made.
I will post when we have some updates.
in the meantime I should have the four sets made in a couple of weeks.

I think I've contacted everyone and your kit may allready have them or I'm shipping out the new pieces.

Bracket in raw form.

Completed.

The new version of the bottom mounting brackets I like better than what came with the kit that I purchased earlier this year. Please send me info on how to purchase them.

Thanks
Mike

These new brackets will not fit the poles you purchased from old coot.
They only fit the poles I'm currently making from emt conduit.

I need to clarify for anyone interested in my awning poles that they are NOT the same poles oldcoot was making.

They are made from emt conduit and are NOT the exact same specs as oldcoots.

The only thing that remains the same is the upper mounting brackets otherwise there completely different.

I clearly stated earlier in this thread that they were emt conduit.

I just want everyone to be clear.

From what I saw of FT Turbs poles in Goshen, they are very well made and should perform well.

At the bottom is the pole pinned to the awning support arm? Does the pole sway back and forth going down the road and do damage to the 'paint' from rubbing metal to metal? Can the awning pole be left attached to the support arm in the horizontal position when the canopy is out and not used as a support pole in the vertical position? I guess the pole(s) could be easily detached at the top bolt is I wanted to store them somewhere else and not use them or not want to travel with them there on the awning support arms.

Yes pinned in a"U" bracket. And it can stay in the bracket, when the awning is deployed, horizontally.
