1975 interior folding door slides
I have the Superior folding door between bedrooms and front of unit.
The sliders that bolt onto the door are breaking
Where on earth can new ones be obtained
Any ideas on changing them??? Somehow lift that to track out???

This is a follow on. It appears that Superior Doors are long gone, along with any hardware they made. A stop at Oasis RV, who has warehouse of parts proved to be a waste. Taking the last intact slider to ACE Hardware, my man there dug up some nylon spacers that looked like the top of the slider, a lot of thought, and I got some 8-32 threaded small eye bolts and inserted them into the spacer, little lock tight, adjust the height, and in business

Wow those are close but about 1 inch too short. Thanks

Huh, I thought for sure that was what you needed. I cut mine out of the channel to get the old accordion out before I discovered that I could unload the channel by simply removing one screw. I've learned to take my time with the old girl, because those folks at Airstream often did things with some thought back in the late 60s and early 70s!! Good luck, please post plenty of pics!
