Entry Assist Handle

There is an acrylic assist handle on our 01 Alpine that is severely cracked. I would like to replace it with a chrome or black handle. Any suggestions on where to find such an item and the part number?????
Thanks in advance and HAGD.

This is from an earlier post (#8 in the Quick Tips and Easy Mods -Alpine Style thread) by Mike and Mike. They seem to have a source/part number for you:
Replace your Exterior Grab Handle

The chrome of our exterior Grab Handle was pitting and I couldn't polish it to the point where it wouldn't pit any more. So, I wanted to replace it. After much searching on the Internet, I found a website that had Grab Handles. I thought I saw the one I needed but after phoning them, I was told I actually needed one that was not shown on the web site.

Attn: Andie (a nice lady and steered me in the right direction when I was almost going to buy the wrong model. Give her lots of information to work with and she'll fix you up.)

If you're nervous about selecting the correct bar, you might want to check their 'return policy' before you order. I didn't, but in the end, everything was perfect.

The one I bought, which was an exact factory replacement, was their model 5500-LE. Price complete, with lighted bar and engraving is about $69.00. Deduct $8 if not lighted and deduct another $8 if not engraved. Engraving of 16 characters and spaces can be done in 5 colors: Black, Bright Green, Red, Black, Brown. The bar only (no chrome mounts with engraving is $39.45 and without engraving is $21.15. Shipping is extra and seems to be a maximum of $13.50 via UPS Ground.

Here is a thread with many options. Newmar people are always looking for replacements.

FYI: The OP has an Alpine, not a Newmar. Don't know if the fittings would be 100% compatible from a Newmar. OP probably doesn't want to drill new holes and patch old ones.

I know he had a Alpine the sticks can be cut to fit for any handle setup.
The replacements are not only for Newmars.
