Hi there
Broken poles of any description are a pain, but aluminium...
If you purchased the tent from a retailer give them a call to see if they have any spare poles – sometimes they keep returns for spares.
Given that many poles are interchangeable it is worth calling some of the big manufacturers like AMG (Vango) Kyham or Sunncamp. Measure the pole diameter and length before you call.
You could also try www.pennineoutdoor.co.uk or www.profabrics.co.uk – these supply DIY materials to campers wanting to make their own gear.
Good luck with the search and let us know how it goes.
Cheers
