You can go to Campworld and ask for the small tent poles that is used to hold up the side window varandas of the main tent. The poles are about 17mm in diameter.

Best would be to go to Non Ferous Metals in your area. There you can buy the pole in 6m lenths cut it to size with a hacksaw or better yet a small pipe cutter. The lenth of the poles is then determined by yourself. The plastic pins on the top you will find at Campworld and the plastic/rubber props at the bottom at Builders or hardware shop.

This latter why of doing it will save you lots of money.

What Leon said is the best - much lighter.  But you can also make them "telescopic" by purhcasing 22mm and 25mm diameters.

But if you insist on going old-school:

I have a set of poles for each of the following:

- Caravette 4;

- Rascal (with extended patio).

A bottle of Jameson's should do the trick.

I'm in Fourways.

Go and see the guy's at Camp world, they will show you how to make them up and supply everything you need to do the job. You can also try Outdoorhouse or any Caravan dealer.   

Good luck.
