    Hello all.

    The pop up I bought came with an awning, but unfortunately it did not come with any of the support poles. What can I use that won't break the bank? Thanks

    I made replacement parts for mine out of electric conduit. Cheap and readily available at just about any big box, hardware store or lumber yard.

    I rebuilt an old awning a while back and it didn't have any poles. I bought 6 of these: https://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabelas-Adjustable-Height-Tent-Poles/745910.uts?slotId=2

    I got the 8 footers because my camper is pretty tall, you may be able to get away with shorter ones. All in all I ended up with about $80 into the poles, but they work great, and once the awning fails (which it will eventually) I'll be able to reuse them for something else.

    Thanks for the link. These are the poles I had mentioned above.
