Awning replacement poles or new awning?

Hi,

First time post here. We just bought a 2006 Baja 10Z. We love it, but it came without poles for the awning!!! Any advice on finding new poles?
Or is it better to source out a new awning altogether? If so, are there any suggestions of brand model to go with?

Thanks!

First thing you need to do is determin what brand of awning it is. Somewhere on the awning there should be a tag/label that will indicate brand and model number. Then I would begin a search for awning parts and see if a pole kit part number was available. once you have a part number, Ebay and Amazon.com can save you some serious bucks. But don't disregard RV dealers, you don't know how competitive their prices are until you ask. Doing your homework is the key point here.

Once you have your best price for replacement poles, then price an entire awning set. A whole new awning might very well be cheaper than the replacement parts. As a former RV dealer parts guy, I have seen that type of situation more than a few times.

Thanks for the advice.
I'll see if I can find the brand/model of the awning.

Anyone out there know where to find quality but inexpensive awnings? I may need a 10'. Any brands better than others?

Cheers.

I bought a Jayco 1207 that was also missing all the poles. Look carefully at the awning itself to make sure it isn't, in fact, damaged. The seller of mine said the awning was fine, just missing poles. I discovered a few tears in the awning, then discovered that new poles, with shipping, were going to be something like $200+. Even with the new poles, I really didn't like the process needed to putting up the old awning, so I went with the Carefree of Colorado "camp out" awning. Somewhere on this site are some photos of it. I'll look around.

EDIT: Here is the thread: https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=20499
