Plastic light switch for ceiling light in 1979 Sov.

I am trying to find 2 replacement round light switches for the ceiling lights in out 1979 Sovereign. Here is a photo of the 1 we do have:



If anyone has some laying around, that would be great or if anyone knows where you can order some.

Thanks,
Tadd

It might help to know the diameter. There has been more than one size in these type of knobs.

If you are not able to find the originals, maybe replace them with dimmer switch knobs. You'll need to watch the stem size/shape. Some universal replacements have inserts to fit different stems - believe I've seen those at HD and Lowe's. Not vintage but better than no knob.

That large ceiling light switch knob, was last used by Airstream in 1975.

That knob was discontinued from Airstream's inventory, several years ago.

Dimmer switch knobs are about the same size.

Thanks everyone for the info. I was hoping someone had a couple sitting in their garage from putting in fantastic fans. I kinda like these with the 70's era yellow clear/silver look. If not, I will go check out the box stores.

Didn't think about posting the diameter, sorry. They are 1 1/4" in diameter. If someone has some that look the same but slightly smaller or larger, they would work too.

Thanks,
Tadd
