All you can do is try. Seems to be hard to get parts for these things as Carefree doesn't seem to support the vintage. Once bent the mast to my sailboat (that is another story). Took it to a seasoned sailer who put it between the fork in a tree and bent back like new so anything is possible.

There's one attached to post #9 of this thread. Hopefully it's what you're looking for.

Carefree endcaps?

Kevin read your post on the carefree awning. I have 74 soverign and wish i would have seen your post anyway tried to release tension and broke one of the endcaps. Would you happen to know where i can replace them both with metal ones? Also most of the tension is off as my awning was held on by about a foot of fabric that gave way and caused the release of the tension. So my awning is 21ft any idea number of revolutions for the spring tension? in addition do i get fabric from carefree or will someone elses fabric work as well?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, Kevin, for posting the Carefree instructions. The company's site has zilch on this old of a product.

Having just bought one from the classifieds section... I won't have to scratch my head quite as much now!

carefree has fabs. plus many after market fabs, available just make sure they fit carefree, as for end caps I did not have any luck replacing them as it impossible to do. Carefree has new spring ass. w/cap on big dif. they go over end of arms instead of plug type av. in colors or mill finish If awning is from 1974 check springs maybe rusted ready to break
