Default Gold plated awning rail???

I need a length of awning rail for the off side of my Bailey Ranger
2000, the straight piece that goes from the front corner to the wheel
arch, about 80 inches. (It got damaged - her indoors was not pleased).
A caravan dealer in St Ives quoted about 11.50 for a twelve foot
length, but he won't have any for about two weeks. I rang a dealer
near Peterborough and was quoted 70, yes 70, for rail that matches
the Ranger.
I thought that awning rail was awning rail, it looks as if Bailey use
a realy high quality executive rail.

Probably the same dealer that wanted 7-00 for a rubber seal for an
external battery locker! Would he be to the east of Peterborough?

It's not urgent, it just looks bad. A constant reminder that it is
not easy to do a "U" turn with a caravan.
