TV Antenna parts (Braund Mfg)

Fellow Airstream owners. I am looking for help in locating Braund TV parts for a 1981 Excelle Ltd.
The parts are part of the rooftop turret that controls
the up, down and rotating action of the TV Antenna via an electric switch on the inside of the cabin. A black plastic gear and a yellow plastic (fibreglass) 6 inch long cover. Any help would be greatly appreciated EH.
Than you Beaucoup.

The gear should be available from either Vintage Trailer Supply or Inland RV amongst others. The other part you are going to have to ask around. If you have the original Braund part number, post it and perhaps a few of us can look at the old new stock various older RV places might still have collecting dust...

You can try your luck with this ebay auction of multiple parts. Will likely go for too much money though.

Thanks to all who have responded to my call for help. I was able to obtain the Gear (Bevel gear) and the (Weather cover) from Barker Mfg. Co. The parts are currently available for the Concord Electric series 90 Antenna, and compatible with my original Delta (Braund) Antenna on my 1981 Excella Ltd. I suspect that there may be many other parts that are also compatible with vintage antennas. Barker Mfg. service technicians are fantastic with their help, delivery and pricing is reasonable. I recommend them.
