Why did you need that extra bracing?
In total that seems like quite a bit of weight in just conduit; did you attach the upper aluminum angle into the frame of the window or above the frame? With rivets or stainless steel screws?
How have these held up over the last year? Have you had any rubbing against the Argosy or any issues in high winds while traveling?
Yes all the conduit is 1/2".
It just held the curved shape better with the extra brace.
They really do not weigh much, and are easy to lift into place.
The upper angle bracket is attached to the window frame with rivets.
They have held up perfectly, and since they are held away from the body of the Argosy, they do not rub on the body anywhere.
The only thing I may change is to replace the pebbled fiberglass panels with something that you could see through. Then if I was only stoping for the night, I would not have to remove them to see outside.
