    Default Custom pole fabrication

    I have a Conqueror Companion with insta-awn, and we had Jackal Berry Canvas build a very nice set of walls for it, which gives us significantly more room inside than the "standard" 270 enclosure with walls from Conqueror.

    The downside being its quite a bit of canvas, and I am looking for someone to do some custom work with poles and fittings inside to give it some more rigidity, and reduce areas where water can pool. Jackal Berry did excellent canvas work - but they are not metal fabricators. Any recommendations from the forum?

    I'm basically looking for a couple of collapsable poles that would be able to attach to each other to act like a couple of roof trusses.

    Buy alu poles 22mm fit into 25mm and the pole connectors you can buy from and camp shop.
    You buy 6m length.

    Thank you - I have seen some of those fittings. This is going to need a bit more than that though, some welding and some custom angles, to make it work. also some of them will be fairly long so I think I'd want to go with some of those twist-lock adjustable poles.

    Try Blue Hole trading, they do custom canvas and tent work.

    They are sometimes a bit slow to respond, so just be patient.

    Cannot help you with the welding, but you can save A LOT by buying the tubes from Non-ferrous Metal works on Pta West, and the buy the Aussie clamps (or whatever you like) at a caravan shop.
