1973 C Class awning

Hi y’all! My husband and I purchased a 1973 C class last fall. We recently opened the awning for the first time and it’s sad to say it’s in bad shape. Lots of broken/rusted pieces. I’ll send photos soon to show exactly what’s broken. Anyway, does anyone know what brand of awning was used on the C class? Every photo I have found of a C class shows the same awning. I’ve reached new awnings but we want to keep her looking as original as possible. If parts aren’t available does anyone have recommendations on a silver 12’ awning? The last thing we wanna do is put a brand new shiny white one on. Thanks!

I think that the Class Cs were not equipped with an awning, originally. Publicity photos (see below) don't show them installed. It could be that they were/are all after-market additions. My own C has a small, very primitive awning (see avatar) with poles that fold up inside the awning case.

Sounds alot like ours, which is pretty small (see avatar).

Jellybean, could you post a photo or two of your Class C? Would love to see it. A rare bird.
