Searching for Zip Dee part

Hello everyone!

I've been searching with no luck to find a matching replacement part for my Zip Dee awning. I need a replacement head case and pin for my rear awning because my father managed to break the cast aluminum. However, I can't seem to find one that looks the same. I've found some I can purchase which would function the same, but then it would be mismatched.

I have a 1976 Airstream and so I doubt there are any new ones lying around, but I was hoping one of you might have one available or know where I can find one. (Yes, I've had an ad up on Airstream Classifieds for a while now.)

Have you checked with ZD? They have parts for older awnings.

I haven't seen this style offered by any of their dealers. I have contacted them too, but haven't heard back yet.

MayaW1010, the ends look like the ones on my 86. Have you expanded your search, or are you just looking for 76?

I don't particularly care what year trailer they come from as long as they match.

I can and if I can't find a matching one that's probably what I'll end up doing. I just figured I'd try all my resources before giving up.

I'd love more information on this boneyard, if possible.

I have a bunch of zip Dee awning parts off '70s airstreams.
Where are you?
