Hinge for rear bath closet

I've owned a 1976 Sovereign rear bath that was perfectly taken care of by the previous / original owner. On our first real trip I didn't check things close enough and one of our closets in the rear was left open, the bottom hinge broke in transit. It's kind of a small thing considering the trailers age but it makes me sick considering the previous owner put thousands of mile on her since 1978 and she was almost in perfect original condition when I bought her. Does anyone know where I can find an original hinge or a close replica to replace the broken one?

It's hard to tell what this looked like before it broke. Do you have any part numbers on the pieces or on another hinge that is still intact?

We have had pretty good luck finding replacement parts at Al's RV, but they are located only a few miles from our home:

You may have better luck at an RV parts store in your area, where you can take the part in for them to see.

Also, we have also been able to find some parts at West Marine. In most cases, marine parts are better quality than those made for RVs; because they are frequently made of stainless steel instead of plastic or pot metal.

Look at Part # 382159 at Out of Door Mart and Part # 19500 at Inland.
