My RV parts place in Missoula MT found that their supplier had one in stock in their warehouse in Utah, and ordered it for me. It came in a week, over 4th of July which delayed it a bit.

Prior to ordering it from them, I googled the Atwood number and found several places on line which sold them. The cost was about the same. I like to give my local RV place as much of my parts business as possible so they will stay viable and be able to get things for me when I need them. But, if you are having problems finding it, on line is the way to go. Mine was an Atwood 88007. Just Google it.

Further post to rumrunner: I see you have an old '55 FC. The Atwood number may not be right for you. Look for local places that sell or build trailers, like horse trailers and cargo trailers. They have experience with couplers and sources to get them. The trailer builder that I had mine removed and welded on had a number of couplers in stock, including the excellent Bulldog coupler. However, I finally opted for the OEM Atwood for reasons outlined in the posts above.

Atwood & Andersen hitch

Idroba, checked my vintage Atwood coupler and no cracks and all good. I'm concerned though on the rearward pressure
that my Andersen appllies to that locking wedge mechanism wearing out. It's good now but I could see it wearing out
in the future and being pushed upward dropping the ball. Wondering what design improvements that Atwood has done
inspiring your confidence? Atwood has that wrap-around yoke style latch but 8000 lbs capacity,which might hold the
latch down some but not sure as the rearward pressure is really tremendous. I really have to keep a close eye on mine
as i love the Andersen hitch.
