OC, how about this length for us 5er & TT owners (Agree with you that the MH folks may need a longer one):

Should work great, the last sets I made had 5' outer poles and 6' inner poles with 20" left inside the outer which could be reduced to 5"-10" if needed to get a max of 10'2" -10'7" (122"-127").

52 upper and 52 lower brackets have been plasma cut and ready to pickup. Now, to start the job of cleaning the slag off, breaking them out, drilling, chamfering and de-burring 468 holes, forming 104 brackets, bead blasting, stamping and packaging. If I can get the lazy OldCoot off his rear, should be able to start taking orders and shipping Mon. 31Mar14.
