Are they springs or pistons? I have a Daybreak and mine use the pistons like on a car hatchback. If that be the case you can buy these at any auto store. just need the size. I would think they would be hydraulic pistons. Just a guess, hope this helps. Have never seen springs used to hold a door up. They are not very big. If I remember right, they are the same size as the ones to lift and hold the bed storage door in place.

Could you post photo of door area with someone holding door in the open position, and of any mounting hardware still attached to the door and/or the opening it is hinged too?

My 2005 has standard air springs.. Post a photo of the door, In fact post 3

Closed
Part open
Full open

If it is standard air shocks like on mine any decent RV store will have 'em, many auto parts, Camping world,, Lots of options.
