Hi,
As i am new to this site, i am looking for some information please if anyone can help. We have a Trio 123 Porch Awning which came with our oufit when we bought it.The poles that came with it do not match up we have been searching the net to try and find some poles that would fit it, but alas to no avail.
If any member has been through this themselves and know where we could buy these poles that we require, we would be very gratefull .
Many thanks,
Gloria.

Its worth talking to them or going in as they won't list them on the website.

I had a Telt Larson awning which took me hours, days more like!, to sort out the poles for, like you I'd almost given up thinking they must be for some other make, however they were correct

Point being, Trio use the identical pole system and infact once mastered is dead simple :yes:

Thank you once again for your advice, when i next go into Truro i will call in and see if they can help us, if not might consider buying a new Porch Awning, or a second hand one if i can find one at a reasonable price.Just missed one on Ebay but never mind.
Once again many thanks.
Regards,
Gloria

I have to agree with Gary have you double, double checked the poles you already have.

When I put my first awning up I thought it was a porch awning, I had got it totally wrong :blush:

Thank you once again for your advice the poles have been checked by my Dad and myself several times and as there are no instructions on how to assemble the awning the poles dont seem to fit plus some are bent as well the awning and poles came with the outfit when we bought her and didnt know the condition of it, so really we are stuck at the moment.
We have been looking at awnings on ebay but just missed one, but the price it went for can buy a new for twenty pound more, Perhaps if we could find instructions for our Trio that might help us or even a second hand awning if there is any available.
Anyway once again thank you for all your help,
Best regards,
Gloria.

Below you will find a link to a thread from 2009 asking about same porch awning and reply #4 has a diagram attached. Have a look at that and see if you have the same number of poles.

Hi,
Thank you for your help the diagram is a lot different for the shape of our awning as ours is a Trio 123 Porch Awning, its difficult to see what poles are needed as the ones we have are twisted and bent.and more than what is needed as well by the look of them i think these are for a larger awning, but not sure. If only we could get some instructions that may help us.
Anyway thank you very much for your help and advice.
Best regards,
Gloria.

You mean the thruppenny bit one Bob?, no, but always struck me as a bit of a nightmare :wacko:

This is all a bit day-jar-vu for me though, I had I think 32 poles, little or no plastic bits left on the ends to give a clue so most looked the same, definitely without doubt had far too many :yes:

After various freezing attempts outside to assemble it, I took it to dads and laid it out in his massive lounge, folded in half because one side is going to be the mirror of the other.

Then I jut sat and looked at it for a good while, offering poles in pairs to I sussed it, what I eventually realised is, where two poles appeared enough to reach, three was needed and that was the turning point.
What they do is have one set of poles too several sizes of awning, if you have the smaller awning of that range, then most of the third pole stays inside one of the others. So that was one pole per leg extra taken care of, it then became obvious I had five roof poles so that took care of six more pieces.
Finally the front ridge poles, where just 4inchs of the third pole was needed, got rid of the last two 'spare' poles.
Cost me 12 quid for plastic bits and springs to join the sets of poles together, then after some practice Linda and I could arrive on site where van was sited, erect the awning and have the kids in bed inside 35 minutes!!

Obviously Linda's height did not go amiss here, add perhaps 1hr if both on the short side :lol:

Give this guy a try for new or indeed spares
