Do what I did. Watch a few youtube vids... some are very helpful
Get some 3/4 inch ally tube....get the waterproof fabric off ebay...buy an industrial sewing machine....and save yourself 300 or more paying someone to do it.
Buy a cheap awning cover to practise/make patterns
When done flog the sewing machine and its then even cheaper
