Yep, good bet. Ace or Tru-Value are my go to places for most odd hardware. Find a small rural town for super results AND staff who know what the inventory is and does.
Good sources for Lodge cast iron too, though most thrift stores are excellent hunting grounds... buy a skillet or griddle for $4 then wire brush off the rust and re-season. Makes a great welcome gift to a new camping friend.

Not really a grommet, more of a bumper between the sink/stove tops and their glass tops. Don't know how they disappear, but we were missing one on our sink top when we purchased our used rv. Should be a recessed screw that holds them on from the top.

If these are for holding the sink (and stove) in place, "flush" washers might substitute, but, if so, would probably require a somewhat longer screw. Here is an example for a #4 screw: https://www.restorationstuff.com/eco...5orvv08207d7l0. The same company has them for other screw sizes.

They look like they might also be the base for the rubber bumpers for the glass top of a Dometic round sink (such as https://www.amazon.com/Dometic-VA730.../dp/B01M7VJM7S). If so, the flush washers with a flat-head screw and a stick-on rubber or vinyl bumper might work. For example: https://www.amazon.com/Self-Adhesive...%2C187&sr=8-18.

Yes bumper is a much better description.

Thanks for the search. Based on the dimensions I can find in the question and answer section these appear to not be a compatible size.

OUCH, a little touchy I would say. This is the Airstream Forum where you will get replies direct and head on, so be ready for it.
Now: Airstream is not the manufacturer of the sink, they use it as a component. So....the manufacturer (or more likely importer) may give you a better price. Goes back to the 70's when you could buy a whole new crock pot for what the replacement insert cost when your kids (uuugghhhh maybe I know that person) broke it while washing it.
So his post is a valid suggestion, just not maybe what you apparently were wanting to hear?
Now - have you looked at McMaster Carr or Grainger?

Yeah that’s the sink I have in my 2010 Interstate. I’ll try Dometic tomorrow and see if they have these tiny bumpers. Thanks Tim.

Sure no problem. I was shocked at the price they quoted is all and I had already mentioned that. No worries. Tim posted a picture of my sink on Amazon and it’s manufactured by Dometic. Gonna call them tomorrow. Thanks for the help.
