Vintage awning

We just had this company make us a vintage awning and they did a great job, and the price was right. We had a ruff time finding a company that made them and tought we would pass this on for those that are also looking.

Fox Tent And Awning Co. is one of the oldest tent companies in the United States. Fox Tent & Awning Company - Ann Arbor, MI- Fox Tent And Awning Co.

Thanks for the tip! We're thinking our Safari will be getting a new awning this year, so I'm glad to hear about any company that will make them.

Did you get a Rope and Pole type of awning? If so, how is the pricing compared to vintage trailer?

We went with the rope and pole type awning. Was told that vintage trailer awnings are excellent awning', but, we wanted a different pattern and color.

We bought the poles from:
Eureka Adjustable Tent Pole - 8 ft. from REI.com

Vinyl beaded welt from;
Vinyl Beaded Welt, Rope, Ropes and Cords, Embossed Welt Style #180, Hidem Welt - Vinyl from Rochford Supply - Your Online Textile and Upholstery Superstore!

Awning chrome rail from: Awning Rail - Chrome, Automotive, Automotive, Aluminum Bow Sockets, Automotive Hog Rings from Rochford Supply - Your Online Textile and Upholstery Superstore!

I attached a picture showing hoe I attached the rope to stake using a pulley.

We purchased our Bambi II awning from Vintage Trailer Supply and are very satisfied with the results.

Spare tire cover

Looking at a picture of Yukionas' beautiful Bambi II, I noticed the spare tire cover. My 64 Globetrotter uses the same spare mount and I would like to find the same, or a similiar cover. Anyone know where I can find one?
Thanks
