Another source for aluminum.... your local awning supply house.  If you have 
a commercial/residential awning shop located near you, they may have the 
tubing you're looking for or be able to order it from their supplier at 
lower shipping cost, plus it'll be 20 feet long.  This must be a custom 
awning shop, not the factory made installer type shop.  They are also a good 
place to get AL welded as their awning frames are typically aluminum and 
they are equipped to "MIG" weld thin aluminum stock.  My local source gave 
me a 15' piece of 2" OD , .25" wall tubing for free.  They typically use 
6061-T6 but be sure to specify if they order for you!
