Question my 1982 Excella

hello one and all, i just found this site while trying to find parts for my airstream 1982 excella. we have had it for about 7 yrs now and have been replacing worn-out parts ever since. thus far we have replaced the toilet, the a/c, the hot water heater and furnance, all three awanings and all four tires/rims. belive it or not, when we got the camper it had mobile home tires on it! got a good deal on proper tires and rims. the camper did not have anykind of spare tire holder so i got one made and attached to the main frame behind the rear bumper. this is the best location for one. a trailer weldier made a post that comes up past the bumper and slightly above it so as not to interfer with the opening of the bumper.but where would one put a generator?just recently (xmas time) the door latch busted and there was no other keeler-brass to match it, so factory sent replacement and it worked but dont look good! so now i am trying to find a door without going to the factory and also looking to replace the bathroom sink. any ideas?

my 82 Excella

Could you send good closeup pictures of the busted door latch and point out where it busted. Maybe I can help.
Also. on my 84 Excella the spare tire rack is just to the rear of the propane bottles underneath.
I've had mine one year this month.
