Unhappy Care Free awning 26ft Awning lost

I have a 1976 Argosy with a Care Free awning. I got caught on the highway in 60 plus mph winds, I slowed down to 45 but a gust of wind caught the awning and ripped it off. Thank God it didn't hit another vehicle.
I has the curved arms from the period and I would like to find some arms, I have most of the other parts but the arms are really bent. I would like to keep the trailer as original as possible although I had all new water lines, new paint and any number of other upgrades, spent way to much money though, but my wife likes the retro look.
I contacted Care Free but they don't make replacement parts for the older awnings.
Any suggestions for the curved arms???? Thanks for any help.

Earl, I will send you a PM with my phone number. I may have a set you can use. We can discuss how you want to proceed if you are interested. Ed
