Broken attachment to camper

The cast aluminum fitting to attach the long arm of the awning to trailer broke. Does anyone know where replacements can be sourced?

If it is a ZipDee awning you can get parts direct from ZD.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

Newer trailers use ZipDee awnings and can get replacement parts from them.

Yours looks like it uses an A & E awning. I'm not sure if they're still in business but Vintage Trailer Supply might be a place to start or Colaw's Trailer Salvage (oh the trauma of looking at that many totaled Airstreams).

I'm not too knowledgeable about vintage but this might be some help.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

I am sure it is like this

If its like this be careful. The arm could fall loose, swing around and really hurt your Airstream. I found my broken mount by accident....sitting on the step having a cool one. You can find any awning part in the RV Parts area of EBAY.

Awning update

It is A&E Travelawn 5000. I think I have seen a similar replacement on EBay. Not exact though. Thanks for the help.
