Ouch, that blows. I wonder if you could not have something custom bent that would be stronger AND cheaper?

Default This ought to make you feel better

Several years ago, one of my men had rented a big truck to haul material from a hospital and not use to driving anything bigger than a pickup truck, he went under the canopy at the patient drop off area and tore a huge hunk out of the fancy awning. The bill-----$22,300. OUCH!!!!!! (Company is self-insured)

Dude that blows. Sorry to hear it.

My brother has a place that he has gotten trailer side stuff from REAL cheap and it seems to be better quality then original from what I can tell. If you can send me a picture I can pass it along to him and see if he has any ideas
