Airstream Excella 500 Carter Shade awning.

Hi all,

We have a Carter Shade awning from the 70s that is missing parts.
The person we bought the trailer from told us the awning was working fine and foolishly we trusted him and didn't open it out to check. Now that i am at the point to test it out it was held together with white tyraps that were well positioned.

From all i have seen the company doesn't exist anymore and i cannot find if they were bought by another company.
If you have any idea or direction it will be greatly appreciated.

Also, i am wondering what the best option is: to find parts and repair the awning or getting a new one.
if anyone has heard to repair or replace a 1971 Excella 500 31ft please share your thoughts.

Thanks for your time.
