I would like to preface this as a purchase by a person inexperienced in zip dee awning and too excited about their Airstream project who should have done more research. The seller was straight forward and helpful with questions.
I would like some guidance in whether I should keep the set I bought as is and sell to a trailer owner. I paid 1400 for everything and know knowledgeable welders and tailors.
These awnings were taken from a motor home. I purchased a 20.5 foot patio awning with what I assume are Universal arms? One set of hardware is missing one piece only. There is a matching window awning with all hardware (maybe 6 feet wide) and a matching RV slide out awning (about 8 feet wide) with RV slide out hardware. The color is a pretty slate blue. I recognize that buying a manual zip dee awning new with no hardware is about 1400.
I have a 61 Tradewind and plan to cut the tube of the main to the right width on the non-spring end and hem it if I keep it. I can shorten the slide out length if I in the future obtain side awning hardware.
I am picking them up in a couple weeks and already paid so it's either keep some or resell the set (maybe for a profit so I don't kick myself) as is to an owner of a non Airstream RV.
What as my real options here? I appreciate all helpful advice and it's okay if you are at home laughing at me.
