Need Window Awning Brackets

I am refurbishing a 1975 Argosy Trailer and need to find new lower brackets for a window awning. I believe the awning is original to the trailer.

The brackets are 4 3/4 inches long and the rod comes down from the awning and turns through the center of the pivot on the bracket. I have attached photos of the brackets. They are marked "right" and "left."

If these brackets are still available please let me know where and how they can be obtained. Or if anyone has a good set of used brackets I would be interested. I need one right and one left.

They sure look like the brackets for the awning that I installed on the rear window of my trailer. The PO gave me the awning, but I am sure it was made by Carefree of Colorado. I would check with them about replacement brackets.

Thanks, I emailed Carefree and got back a very fast reply. The person that replied stated that she thought they had a useable replacement (same only different) and is sending them for me to look at. If they'll work I'll post the info for anyone else that needs these same pieces.

If they don't work, well I'm pretty good at JB Weld fabrication. the detents for positioning the awning have either broken or worn away over time and I think I can build these back up and sculpt new ones.

did the brackets work out? I have the same awning on my 69 Caravel which needs repair & new fabric. I may end up replacing the works.
