Help! Identify this awning

I Have a awning with no marking. I know it was sold by Art File Trailer awnings in Melbourne Fl. The receipt is dated 11-24-75. It refers to it as Pop open awning Acilan #1254 Green Fancy 15 x 9. I would like to find out who made it, and if any parts are still available.

It looks a lot like the Zip Dee awnings. Look at Parts Lists for the parts list and compare it with your awning. You can always call Zip Dee
ZIP DEE AWNING
96 Crossen Ave
Elk Grove Village, IL. 60007
1-800-338-2378
and ask for Randy.

I would still call Zip Dee - they may be able to tell you if they have a retro-fit kit should you need it.

I will give them a call, There is a local shop who seems to think it is an old zip dee.
M.hony. The blue Chevy is a 65, and yes I use it for local trips, new truck for long runs.

some more pictures

I looked at a parts breakdown for carter awnings online. Close but not quite. The problem I'm having is the 1/4 inch square rod with loop bent in it that hooks the awning to the bars was bent, I bent it back but I don't know if that part of the spring or not. When it is bent the awning support bar drags on the plastic in the roller tube. Then the awning won't roll up. This happened on our last trip. Luckily I was with our Airstream Group and we hand rolled it to get me home. Also there are no bars to hold the awning out, I have to drive stakes and tie it.
