Hi everyone! So glad I found this particular thread....We bought a 1978 Trillium
this past Fall
and have been fixing it up all winter, first camping trip booked May 15th so it's crunch time
We have only opened the awning in our driveway (the SAME exact yellow/white tension one as your photos Francesca!) to examine/clean it and since we live in somewhat of a metro area there was never space to open it up with poles etc, see a "before" photo below the day we bought it of how close is is to our house, lol. We were able to move it about 3 feet over but that was all the space we could get.
Well yesterday my husband and I drove it to a large parking lot to finally open up the canopy fully with poles etc, and we are totally lost. We have NO idea which poles go where, into what holes, how to set it up (one person or 2), and in the process broke/snapped off a tiny pointed part of one of the poles (Having our toddler with us running around like a monkey didn't help either).
Would be EVER so grateful if you would post close up pics of your assembled awning poles? ie, at the joints and underneath so we can see which ones to use where? Better even, a video assembly would make me swoon!
We are soooo excited to take our first outing but this whole awing deal is an integral part or our enjoyment! Thanks so much! Here's a photo from the parking lot adventure yesterday, pre awning incident
