Well I tried the Rockler website which is always good for unusual stuff, but I don't know the right keywords. Rockler did have some nice gas lifts.
Simplest fix, call Airstream and have them ship a replacement to your local RV dealer.
Second simplest, go to the Airstream website and find a picture/part number/description of the spring hinge thingy. That could make a search of Rockler or some other hardware website more productive.
Last, call Colaw's RV Salvage and get them to find and ship you a salvage one. ... Without looking at mine, I'm guessing that they are left and right specific, so order carefully or get the pair.
I'm somewhat shocked one broke, those are rather stout hinges on fairly lightwight doors. Is it possible that the spring adjustment screw just came loose and fell out? I know there's a thread here where the owner added these hinges to the cabinet over the fridge... Maybe best mode for under $100?
