Another Newbe….

Hello Everyone, I’m definitely not new to camping, but I’m am new to “forums”. I’m not much on computers, websites and techie stuff. I have read on several places where a couple ol boys called “old coot” and “turby” were making some real nice awning support poles and mounting brackets. Can anyone point me in their direction? I can’t seem to find any info anywhere else. Thanks

Welcome to the forum. The folks you are referencing no longer have the items available and Old coot does not visit the site very often. Later RJD

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Years ago I got brackets from Old Coot and poles from Turbs. You can visit youtube and see videos on how to make your own awning poles. Mine have saved my awning many times.

As mentioned, Old Coot & Turbs do not supply the brackets and poles any longer.
They had a great idea and many of us took advantage of their efforts.
I have two sets on my current R/V. They make deployment of our awnings pretty much 24/7 (within reason) when camping.

With that said, Carefree is selling a similar concept for stabilizing and tying down an electric awning.

Not a bad price. Down side is you are always storing as compared to Tubs pole that stay attached to the awning arms. Later RJD
