A&E Awnings, old style

Post by BWavion » Sun Jul 30, 2017 9:33 pm

My project, 1978 34W Avion. I just happen to have these older A & E Awnings. I don't have a parts manual, and appears that Dometic now owns A & E. I am looking for parts, such as roll tube springs, and end caps. Maybe some of the later model hardware will fit? Or will I have to just replace with a new assembly. I am wanting to replace the awning fabric, but before I do that, I want to know where I can find the plastic end caps and springs inside the roller on my existing awnings. I am trying to avoid just replacing the entire units. If I do replace the entire units, which is the better complete awning units I should be looking at. I guess they all are made with more plastics brackets and parts now too?

Welcome, BWavion.

Not sure if you can get parts from Dometic, but if you go the replace route I would stick with Zip-Dee.
