I need a picture of the awning hinge/bracket

Can anyone post a close up picture of the bottom bracket that holds the awning to the trailer. On my 1972 Overlander the PO has cobbled up such a mess that it's hard to tell how it was originally fastened to the trailer. Also I would appreciate any advice or secrets involved in replacing this stuff.

Thanks!

There are two screws and one over size rivets in each bracket.

If it's a zip-dee, like Richard's pic shows, zip-dee has great service for older awning parts. Awnings By ZipDee

There is an additional bracket under that one on our 89 Excella. It looks as though each one would hold a post com in out horizontally, each is directly under the awning bracket. We can't figure out what they are for! Anyone know ?

Can anyone please post a photo of the upper attachment point for Zip-Dee awning? Recently purchased 'New to Me' '89 Airstream 345LE motorhome. One end of the awning has a bolt holding it together with center awning rod, other end nothing. Don't think what is there is what it should be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Derek

Wow! Thanks Richard! For the photo and the link. Guess I'll be on the phone on Monday with Zip Dee. I'm also missing the clamp wheel and attachment points for the front part of my patio awning. Got a rope on it now to hold it together until I figured out which parts I needed. With your provided link, at least I now know what I'm missing and what the parts are actually called, lol.
Thanks, Derek
