Replacement front bed parts, '79 Argosy

We have a '79 Argosy Minuet 7.3, and love it. The front sofa of course pulls out into a bed. There are metal arms which slide inside of metal tracks, and have plastic "end caps" on them which keep them down in the tracks. Two of these have become brittle and broken.

Anyone know where we can get replacements? I'd rather not have to just use concrete blocks to hold the bed up! <G>

Marvin & Annie,

That's terrific! If you don't want them it would be great to acquire all of your end caps, not just the two we need, so we can be covered no matter what. I imagine the others will go as well. I'll check back in here on Tuesday.

Noticed the names of your "fur babies" - what kinds? Ours is a fully spoiled all-black German Shepherd named Magic. The Argosy is actually "hers", located in a campground on the site where we both work. She comes to work with us daily and stays in the Argosy waiting for her noon time walk. We joke that she has the most expensive, well-equipped dog house in the neighborhood! On long work days she will let us camp overnight with her. <G>

Thanks much, I'll look forward to hearing back from you.
