    I have a 1980 starcraft pop up camper and the bunk support poles are missing ..What would be the best product to replace the poles that will be really sturdy?

    Pull a bed out while someone holds it up, or use a brace. Then measure.

    The poles can be cut with a hacksaw or recip saw. It really helps to have a vice to pinch the ends and then bend them. If you don't have those tools, ask around, maybe a neighbor or friend has them.
