Hi All,
So I have this 8' A&E Trimline Bag Awning which I believe is the 924 series. I'm missing a few parts but I've figured out how to recreate the poles and the rolling tube.

I purchased a 1" x 8' aluminum tube from Rona for the rolling tube and a couple of plastic end caps.

I purchase a couple of Sea Dog White Nylon Top Caps from Steveston Marine & Hardware for the top of the poles. The poles I made with 7/8" tube which inserts into a 1" tube to make it extendable. I drilled 4 holes right thru both poles 6" apart. I used a 1/4" Sea Dog Electrogalvanized Coupler Locking Pin which is inserted into both poles to make it adjustable.

I have what I think are the rafters but can't figue out how to attach them to the trailer. The rafters are the twist extendable type. One end has a 1/4" rod about 2 - 2 1/2" long sticking out of the centre held by what looks like a plastic cap. The rod will insert thru the the top caps of the poles then into the rolling tube. The other end has a 1/4" rod about the same length of the other side but is bent 90 degrees and pressed flat at the end. This end needs to be attached to the trailer with some kind of hardware that I don't have? I don't know what it looks like either so I can't make it one. I have a few ideas but I would love to see what the hardware is suppose to look like?

Anyone know what I'm talking about? Please help???

Hi Arthur,

I believe you are talking about the plastic ball mounts. I have pictures of mine here (though I did not install them). The middle picture has the piece you are looking for.

Here's another pic of the other end which inserts into the rolling tube. See the white top cap which will top the awning pole.

These are a couple of pictures of hardware I used to make the pole. The adjustable knob I stole from a clothes rack and the top cap I got from a Marine supply store...

I tucked the end of the rafter with the 90 degree bend under the awning near the end. The rafter is the twist type.

Everything tucks into the bag when you're not using it.
