Awning Help...Please

I have a near perfect Dometic, Catalina 2500 awning on my Casita EXCEPT one rafter recently broke in a wind burst. Since it is an old model Dometic doesn't make the parts, nor does Scamp or Casita carry them. Any ideas about used parts source? Fabricating a new one would be problematic because of how it attaches to the spring roller shaft.

Thanks in advance

Greg

Well shoot. Have you tried RV Dr. George? He may just have the part you need.
