    Tent bows

    Anyone seen where I can buy tent bows? Looking for the big bendable ones that usually hold up the rain fly. I've tried a couple local places but no luck. I want to put a set crossed under my awning to keep the center up so the water doesn't puddle in the middle. I've done this before and it worked great.

    Thanks for the sites. I'll have to figure out what size I want now and what material...

    Wether fiberglass or aluminum, there are several offerings on either Amazon or Ebay.

    Re: Tent bows

    I ordered a set (2) of them. Hopefully the right size, I measured diagonally from the front left to the back right corner and ordered this size. Correct? Then to get the pole to bow up in the middle, I just squeeze the front of the awning in a little to get the amount of bow I want...??? I haven't sewn in a spot for the poles to go in the corners of the awning yet until the poles get here, just to make sure I get enough bow...
