Zipp Dee

I just had a hard learning experience that finally came to an end today!
Just the mounting hardware for my 71 31' Sovereign from Zip Dee was $650 from the factory.
I had heard the complete unit for my tlr. would have been $2200+ install.
I cleverly stimulated the economy more than I intended by buying a used awning from our forum and being a rookie, did not know enough of the right questions.
Took everything to my local dealer for what was quoted as a $280 2 day turn around job. 10 days later they said the length was too long so had to cut the tube down and send the fabric for rework. 2 weeks later they say the hrdwr is incorrect, find this unit came off an 06 wider square unit.
7 weeks after droping off my tlr, losing all that cooler work time (tx!) I'm now $2020 deep into a used(nice) awning. Can't blame the dealer for this mess but their time & communitcation skills suck.
