‘81 Excella Awning Repair

Hi Group,
Looking for a little guidance. I recently sideswiped a traffic sign on a narrow bridge when an oncoming car was taking up my lane.

The accident ripped and twisted both awning arms! I’ve searched threads and they say look at Zip-Dee but the diagrams are different from mine. Here is a pic of my Excella before the tragedy.

Any recommendations on where to find replacement arms?

The arms are not zip-dee, my thoughts they look like carefree awnings. AS dealers installed lots of them that era. Carefree I believe is now sunsetter, a lot of parts interchange. I would contact a rv dealer that has carefree parts. Also A&E similar to carefree but not many dealers installed that era.

Thanks featherbedder, I did go back and find this decal on one of the twisted arms. Now the hunt for A&E begins....
