Rear hatch struts 1998 LY?

I need a source for the two gas struts that at one time hold up my hatch door on my Land Yacht.
STD-GS-5200-10 on side of strut.

Thanks
Trident

I don't know but I think that 60 pound of compression would be more then I need for the rear hatch at least I think that is what the 60 stands for in the product number.
I think I found a source, I ordered GSNI-5200-10 I received the product yesterday and if it stops raining I will put them on post the if they work or not and I will include the source for those that may be looking.
Thanks for the reply
Trident

Works, these are 5200-20 and it's a good thing, it's just enough to hold up the door any less and I would send them back.
But anyway this is where I found it.
Hope this helps.

I had the 5200-10 I bought the 5200-20 thinking a little more lift on the door would be good. Well I got down into the 30's tonight not doing the job . Still looking

Ya, those rear hatches are pretty heavy. I'd say 40# struts are in your future.

Thanks ! That is what I bought 40# struts and I don't think it's to soon to say it's a good match. Bought these from Amazon at a nice price from there return/used section.
