Need gas spring part number

Can one of you fine EB owners of a late 2012 or newer trailer take a peak at the part number on the gas spring cartridge on your rear hatch. Even though mine has the later 2012 VIN, I ended up with the 125 lb gas springs. Airstream started using 150 lb gas spring cartridges around VIN 526052. The 125 lb part number is C16-18864. see photos....

My rear hatch gets all droopy in cold weather

Mcmaster.com has a ton of these air springs and they are pennies on the dollar compared to getting them from a dealer or car parts place. They are the exact same quality. You may need to know the closed length, extended length, and load capacity. These are usually things you can measure estimate. If you can get the specs on the ones you have, then you will have no trouble finding them at mcmaster.com.

We have a 2014 Eddie Bauer and this is what I found on the struts that hold up the rear hatch on our unit:

manufacturer web site: SUSPA Parts

part # c16-18865 175 lbs. 13/04

It would appear that our unit has 175 lbs struts, not 150's.

Here is a direct link to the page of the strut we have:

c16-18865 - Available Now in the Suspa Inc. Online Store

Best of luck!

I ordered the 150lb part number before Bob posted the 175 part. Suspa support gave me part number C16-26084 and they are working great. Not sure if airstream changed the mounting points for the gas spring brackets which would change the length. Probably not...

For reference, 150 on the left, 125 on the right...
