Cool '72 Tradewind Awning what size ?

Hello all I have a 72 Tradewind 25 ft. Looking to see what size Awninig I need would be the main one over the entry door. And can anyone tell me if I would have to have a special one made or if the support rods are the same today as back in the day. I some times will see one for sale and just not sure what I need. Checked with my local dealer no help.
Thanks
Tom

Your gallery photos don’t show any hardware on the trailer now. Unless you can score some vintage curved Carefree arms and roller you’ll need to go with the Zip-Dee. BTW they are located in Chicago’s Northwest suburbs so they’re an easy drive from Milwaukee.
I bought a 13 foot replacement awning fabric off e-Bay this Spring. The Zip-Dee mountings and placement may be different but should be close to that size.

Deal with a dealer that specializes with Zip Dee awnings.

For your year and length trailer, you need a 14 foot 11 1/4 inch awning.

Because it's over 12 feet long, you should also add a "center support".

A center support adds great strength to the holding power of the arms, in case wind gusts decided to show up.
