Newbie with an Argosy

Hi everyone, my wife and I purchased a 1976 Argosy a few years back and are just now getting around to enjoying it throughly. The Argosy was in reasonable shape when we first bought it, but it need some work before we could travel with it. I laid a new floor down, rework some of the plumbing. My wife did some reupholstering and it is now quite enjoyable. I am now in the process of repairing the three awnings. The awnings are the original Carefree awnings. And preliminary indications are that the two small awnings on the back window and dining room window are history. The main awning may be salvageable if I could find parts. Anybody have any ideas regarding awnings for airstreams or the salvaging of the authentic elements of the RV?

Thanks for the support.

Carefree part are few and far between. I would replace with Zip-Dee Awnings since they are much better than carefree.
