Brake Hose Solution. Help!

Hello, I'm Cesare and I'm writing from Italy. I'm owner a motorhome Airstream Excella 245 (my1979)
I have a problem can you help me?
I broke the Airstream brake hose and it is not possible to find it in Italy. I am sending you the photographs of the pipe (5/16 inch ??) and fittings, you can advise me. Do you know an American reseller who can send it to me in Italy or someone from the club can help me buy it and send it to me. Thanks Cesare

Cesare, you can give this company a try to see if they will ship across the pond.
I have used one of their kits of copper/nickel for my Silverado. Great products and easy to use.

Cesare, 5/16" is the same size as 8mm if you want to try to repair it instead of replacing it. It needs to be double flared.
