old Carefree Awning issues

Good afternoon,

I'm new here and I'm looking for help. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

My issue is the end cap on one side of my old carefree awning has broken. I'm looking for a replacement, however I have not been able to find a source. The caps are plastic and the awning is a curved arm dating from the early 1980's.

Any direction would be great.

Thanks

Best thing is to pur. new springs complete w/springs end caps etc. only dif. tney go over end of arms instead inside, plus springs rust and break. New good to go for long time.

Any rv dealer that installs care free awnings should have them or else ggogle some of after market or ph. care free of colorado they will help you. the caps and springs come white for white arms or mill finish [aluminum] not painted arms. I pur. several yrs ago from local rv dealer as I needed that day. I believe sunsetter awnings and care free are one co. now. PM me if any questions Bill

Fill me in please

We have the old carefree awning system as well on our 72 safari. I was able to order new fabric from carefree, but they were no help on replacement brackets I needed. There customer service said there records only went back to the 80's.

Please post back how your search goes. I also could use new springs and end caps.

Good Luck
Dustin

I went to their web site and printed a parts break down with part numbers and ordered my parts off amazon. My awning is on my 1975 tradewind.
