    Autosleepers Ravenna habitation door hinges

    Help needed please
    I have an Autosleepers Ravenna 1998 on a Peugeot Boxer , whilst braking , the door swung open ( clumsy ) and two of the hinges snapped. Obviously not shut properly by me.

    I contacted a local repairer whom I used previously , he had a look and shook his head... hens teeth was his response. He said he would have a look around but told me today “ no way “.

    The door ( from outside ) opens right to left , the two lower hinges are broken.
    Does anyone know of an aftermarket fitment , or a supplier that I can approach .

    I presume I need left handed hinges , does anyone know what I should call them if I email someone.

    Sorry for being clueless.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Steve

    A call to AutoSleepers themselves may help, perhaps they are holding a few spares.
    A post on the AutoSleepers Owners Club forum may also be a source of information
    or advice.

    I'm praying for you.

    I was on the 'phone last week to the Hobby concessionaires at Ambergate about a totally unrelated matter however, in the course of our conversation I mentioned a previous conversation re the obtaining of hinges for our 2006 Hobby. " I doubt if you would be lucky " came the response.

    I wish you well in your search.

    Try Oleary motorhomes, they have loads of 'new' old stock for lots of MHs so they might be able to help you - their website only has a minute fraction of what they hold:

    It might be worth trying here Steve:


    http://www.caravanbreakers.net/

    We have used them and found them to be very helpful and efficient on the phone and quick to post. They stock new and recovered parts for both caravans and motorhomes and have a huge stock- and know what they have.

    Once again thanks for the good advice to all.
    I phoned Autosleepers only to be told " no idea , we buy em in and fit them " try O'Leary Motorhomes. I called O'Leary and courteous gent said take photo and send to me. I went up to where we gardenniage it and decided i could remove a complete hinge quite easily , so duly did. Got home and matched it online to an Ellbee 5 part 7 inch left hand hung door hinge. On thursday morning i ordered from O'leary and , lo and behold they turned up less than 24 hours later , they are a perfect match so will be fitting next week

    Thanks to all , and thanks to O'Leary and AS , i will not hesitate to use O'Leary in future.

    Regards , Steve
