Side Antenna Replacement

The previous owner of my trailer removed the side radio antenna. I would like to replace it with An original. He left all mounting holes and wires, just covered it with a reflector.
Is this same antenna used on other airstreams or just Argosy?

Anyone else remove theirs and wish to part with it?

Thanks!

It used to be a very common antenna and I did some research a year or so ago for someone who needed the same antenna as you do. As I recall I found it at online AutoZone or one of the online auto stores. It is a round base bolt on system with I think 3 holes. The antenna attaches with a split ball arrangement so it can be adjusted and lined up properly. There is a stiff spring at the base of the antenna itself which allows movement in the wind and prevents it from breaking off if snagged. I have one on my '74 Argosy. The same Antenna was used on many Airstreams of the 70's era.

This one from Amazon.com is the same or similar to the original:

Amazon.com : AM/FM Antenna with 96-Inch Cable : Vehicle Audio Video Antennas : Car Electronics

Here is another which may be OK too, but hard to tell from the photo:
