Retrofitting a used ZipDee awning
First post of many I suspect. I am the proud owner of a 1971 Overlander. This trailer is a complete restoration project and is coming along very nicely. It was abandoned in the forest in 1993 and sat there until I had the brilliant notion that I could fix it up....So far so good! Anyway I am retrofitting a used Zip Dee awning to it that I can make work but it would be better if it was about three inches shorter...of course! Is it possible to shorten the tube on these units? Has anyone done this before? I am replacing the material so that won't be an issue.
