Gaucho slide/guides

We are looking for replacement guides for the slide on the 2 gauchos in our 77/78 Minuet. These parts look to be made of white nylon. Anyone got a good place to look for replacement parts?
We have tried Jackson Center and discovered that the fire took out all of their vintage parts and molds there.

Your help is appreciated.

Argosy Gaucho Slide Plastic Parts

Hey, Loudruff, did you ever get your gaucho slides replaced? Were those the plastic part that stopped the slides from coming out of the brackets? Reason I'm asking is cause some of ours have broken. I saw somewhere on the net the place that originally manufactured the gaucho slides & have been trying to find it again, no luck!?/@#$

Anyway, since we have the same exact Minuet (78 22') I was hoping you came into a vast amount of knowledge on the subject. Maybe!!!???

gaucho guides

Our forums friend, Till, took our measurements and drawings and manufacturered some for us. These are the front guides from the gaucho, not the back stop guides. They work great! Maybe you can pm Till and see about if there is a possiblity of purchasing some from him.
Good luck!

I believe this is the manufacturer of the original gaucho slides. Is this the site you saw?
