    Which poles are missing? There should be poles attached to the awning that swing down bewteen the awning and the ground (vertical poles). And poles that go under the awning between the outside edge and the camper roof (horizontal poles).

    I believe that all the poles are adjustable to account for differing terrain and conditions. I know Walmart sells some aluminum adjustable tent poles that may do the trick for the vertical poles.

    Hi Gilbert -

    Is your awning bag a grey color? I had a factory Coleman awning on my 94 Destiny. There are 2 poles attached and folded up inside the front awning rail. These 2 poles have special rubber feet and are ones that go back to the camper roof. Some other Coleman folks mentioned that they had some loops attached inside the awning bag where the ends of these poles would be supported against the roof. I never found them in my awning bag. I also don't have any brackets on the roof for the poles attach. I read somewhere that these poles were pressure supported against the roof, thus the little rubber feet on the end of poles.

    I also had 3 additional ground poles with little plastic points on the top that fit into the holes in the awning rail. All 5 poles are adjustable in length.

    I've seen folks post here with mods and replacement poles using painter's poles from the hardware store. If your poles need the skinny plastic piece on the top to fit in the holes of the awning rail, I recall someone attaching a screw at one of the replacement pole w/ a screw head large enough to "catch" in the hole.

    The half poles in the rail extend and the length is held in place by spring tension pins. I would think you would be able to replace the missing poles by contacting a local camper dealer

    I use to have a life but my job ate it.

    When I bought my ntu '95 Coleman Sequoia I found the awning poles locked in the rear bumper of the pup.

    Just a thought. They might be there.

    Rear bumper is empty, thanks for the tip anyway.

    It sounds as if the poles that fold into the awning had the extendable part removed. Are there a series of holes towards the bottom of the 'half-poles'? That is where the adjustments happened if you had the bottom half of the poles.

    Give these PPLMotorHomes - RV Parts Superstore a call and they may be able to help you: 1-800-325-9250
