Where to buy structural tubing in East TN?

I need help finding 2 1/2" and 3" diameter galvanized pipe. Also, is galvanized 'structural tubing' necessarily the same as 'galvanized pipe' for the purpose of my project?

The pipe is for the posts of a 6' tall cedar privacy fence that includes a 6' swing gate. I don't want to chance the warping and rotting that I have seen with pt posts, so I am OK with the extra investment.

I found a mail-order site with Allied SS20 galvanized pipe. Of course, the shipping cost for 8 1/2' to 10' sections is very high.

I live in Anderson County outside of Knoxville and am looking to keep the one-way drive under 90 minutes. I am headed to New Tazewell with my trailer in the near future in case anyone is familiar with stores in that area.

Also, anyone seen a product called 'postmaster'? It's a metal line post made to easily connect to wood supports.

I tried to find a few fence sales in Knoxville online for you but the first one I went to my anti virus blocked a Trojan horse so be careful what you click on. Sorry I couldn't help you out.

Tubing has a thinner thickness than pipe. Fencing uses tubing as it is cheaper.Lowes and home depot carries fence tubing.
