Phil, mine were left somewhat assembled and have rusted together. I can't get them apart now. I'll post pics and maybe someone can help me get them apart.

Use a large torch. Heat might help loosen the rust.

I hacked together framing from the awning out of PVC. Here is a video of what I did.

I can't help but notice some sag. When it gets full of water, it will sag more. Have you tried running the garden hose on it? If it catches water, there could be a problem. You also need an angle at the peak.

Here is a picture of mine. I was lucky, all the poles are in good shape.

Could you get me some pics of it underneath to see how your poles connect? Yes, there is some sag. I need to tweak the poles in from so that there is a better forward slope. Once I've done that, I'll tweak the support poles to tighten things up.

Congratulations! I have a 1300 which I love, but, unknown to her I still look at 4500s with longing. Enjoy that trailer, buddy.
