Towel Bar (and searching for small parts)

I come from an industry that has Illustrated Parts Catalogs (IPCs) and if I want a specific part for a specific make/year/model/serial number... I can find that number ...and I can call the mfr'r or a dealer..and order the part, no problem. It's even easy on older models, say 50 years old or so.

We just bought a 2008 22' Safari Sport and it has only one towel bar on the bath door. There's room for two more, one on the door, and one on the wall, if I could just find that part...and find a parts/dealer/supplier who can sell the part.

Visiting the folks in the NW websites (Andy's and Intermountain and Sutton) ...it's just not a simple matter. It appears that unless the website displays the part wanted.... it's just not easy to order.

Anyone have any helpful suggestions? or am I needful of an education on how to find/order parts...?

Our 20 footer didn't have a towel holder either. I noticed that the 2015 models now have one near the sink. I went to Lowes and picked the one we liked and installed it.
Think outside the box!

I probably have this wrong - but I seem to recall on the AS website you can download a "parts book" or something like that which lists every component. Not sure if this does what you're looking for but could be a start?

Good luck!

If you want them match, it may be simpler (and cheaper) to scrap the one you have and buy two that match at Depot/Loews.

Thanks, SteveSueMac! I'll look for that.

As for the other suggestions... yes, I know about Lowes and HD, but I want to match the one existing, and if I remove that one the common big box store stuff prob. won't match the rest of the hardware.
I.E., I like most things to be "original" and simply want it all to look deliberate.... not hodge-podge/conglomeration.

As an aside, we recently bought a Camco full-width door handle for our screen door; but it was too big. So, I installed it on the inside of the bathroom door as a towel bar. Doesn't match, but works great!

Glad you found it! We did the same when we bought our 28' International in 2009. But we were lazy--we just asked the dealer service department to get it for us, which they were happy to do!
