I have two old tents from 1970's and I need a few replacement poles. I've called awning/tent makers and I've had no success. I'm desperate.  Help!

Debra,

Try someplace like Cabela's. They sell tent poles.

They only sell poles for newer tents that are fiberglass with rlaetic. Mine are aluminum.   I've resorted to looking at recycling center but no luck there yet.

Try some other camping equipment sites. Many sell aluminum.

Can you post a picture of what the poles look like?  I may have something which you could jury rig to work.

Yes I think the ones from Cabela's and Anazin might work! Also a okder gentelman told me he could help me weld aluminum washers around the poles with the holes that are all reamed out. That will reinforce the holes!   I was so happy he thought of how to fix those poles without replacement. Thank you so much for helping me!!  Now I can camp when I want without help. (My other canvas is to heavy to set up solo)
