Tent stakes for canopy's

I've been looking for some better tent stakes for my Caravan canopy's and found these. They are 3/8" diameter so it will be necessary to open up the hole in the foot on the Canopy to accommodate the larger spike. They come in 10" and 12" sizes. These are the best I could find.

If you or anyone wants something specific for tent pegs, I can make whatever you want.
Something that size should be fairly easy and cheap to ship.

How much they baggin' you for the timber nail with some stuff welded to it?

They're not banging me for anything but as it says in the link above the picture, the 10" spikes are $2.75ea. I think that's a fair price for what these are. I don't see how you could save any money making them yourself. My time is worth a lot more than that.

lol Oh my.

I have a LOT of experience with tent pegs.

We use 12" Heavy duty Orange spikes that use a mallet to get in and out and my time is worth it to do it right.
