No, John.  My tower is the usual triangular tower.  It's a TriEx LM470D, 
which is a lot like the US Tower HDX series.  

I don't know what to say to make the image clearer.  May have to wait 
for pictures.  But the beams on which the telescoping sections 
rest when they are down all the way are mounted vertically inside 
the tower.
