    Default awning poles:

    I have a 2001 bunkhouse. It doesn't have the two poles that dome the awning. It sags bad in the middle. Is there a way to retro the spring loaded poles to my 2001 camper?

    Ours is also a 2001, we have had lots of good years camping in comfort. I used to use 3 poles on the front awning. the one in the middle would be pulled taut with the guy rope straight out, and the 2 on the corners were set a bit lower so there was a slight peak. <br />
    That worked, but the 3 poles and guy ropes were a pain to get around.<br />
    A few years ago I made some leather triangle pockets about 3&quot; on the 2 short sides and sewed them to the corners of the awning. Went to the big-box sporting goods store and bought some replacement shock cord bendable tent poles, cut them so they were very tight across the awning corner to corner and bowed up. I also sewed an 8&quot; piece of nylon ribbon in the middle where the poles cross to make 2 - 4&quot; ends. Tie those to the shock cord poles to keep them in place and seal the sewn area with tent seam sealer. The key is to have the poles very tight and bowed up against the awning fabric. The tension against the fabric keeps the arc in the poles and the awning domed up. If the tension is too low, wind or someone knocking against the support poles will spring the cross supports and the awing will sag down.<br />
    Hope this makes sense - the camper is put up for the winter so I can't get any pictures for you, but it has worked for us, and you can still use the flap as a flat awning if you need to.<br />
    <br />
    Or you might get the tent portion changed on the trailer to the new style with the plastic windows, rolled floor pan and the new bowed awning.

    All it takes is money.<img src="images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

    Default Tires on the 2001

    I know tires have a shelf life. But I just bought the 2001 bunkhouse, the past owner said he only used it 4 times. (Got remarried, she did not camp) It was garage kept the last 14 years, tires look new with NO weather cracking. I aired them up to 55lbs and pulled it back to Oklahoma. Should I use them and keep a eye on them or just replace?
