Wardrobe door hinges

Hello folks, hoping someone in this forum has already gone through this and may be able to lead me to a source.

Unfortunately, the Interstate Highway system in Texas bounced our '78 31 foot Sovereign hard enough to cause two of the three Wardrobe Closet doors to break their hinges. These are special hinges that I have not been able to locate from any RV Dealer, Airstream Dealer or even the Vintage RV site. I've attached a photo of both the top and bottom hinges from the one door that still remains. The two that broke are are 1 Right swing and 1 Left Swing.

Any help will be appreciated.

Wardrobe door hinges

Look at the Rockler Woodworking catalog hinges for a possible match. Www.rockler.com. More hinges than you can shake a stick at. Also try the big box home store hardware department like Home Depot. Lowes. Etc. Also Ace hardware.

It looks like a standard hinge.

Rockler also has retail stores.

Yes I did find the exact hinges in Nickle but not in Bronze....Did not find them directly from suggestions to this post but indirectly I did get a better idea of what to search for and found them. It's been awhile now and I forget where I found them, but take comfort in knowing that they are out there. I will see if I saved a box label or something and post a new reply here if I find the company.
