Soplair Sunshade

Many of you already know that we have recently started using the Soplaire Sun Canopy that was supplied when we bought the van:-
g25p312-Soplair-Sun-Canopy.html

However there are three poles missing and although I've searched the "interweb" I can't find what I'm looking for.
The three poles in question will obviously be telescopic and at each end there will be a 90 degree hook probably no more than 5mm dia. If you look at the grey pelmet on the sunshade, the poles should run horizontally behind that and the hooks slot into a holed flange on the two front uprights and at a point where the rear roof bar hooks onto the caravan. At the moment we are using tensioned cord which works well but the roof canvas can be a bit "flappy" in high winds.
There are also side and front canvas available that hangs off these cross poles which we would also be interested in locating.

There are no poles of that description on an Isabella awning Roger, can Soplaire not help a master of the French language like yourself?

You can buy the hook shaped end fitments in different diameters at most decent caravan accessory places or even on line. You could, therefore, source you own poles and make up the correct fitting.

I say old bean, what a good idea
I think that's the way to go. As for the sides then Mrs Randa could knock something up out of rip stop nylon That'll keep her busy

Roger have a browse through e-bay there are lots of s/h poles and rafter poles with the 'ook
and telescoping facility. measure the ODia. of the poles you have for a good match.
NR awnings http://www.nrawnings.co.uk/ would probably make up a set of poles for you
or at least supply the bits. Got any photos?

Thanks Rod. Another good idea
I've not got any photos but I can draw something up using the existing poles and measurements.
