Trying to find source for interior grab handle

Anyone know a source for a straight grab handle? I have been looking everywhere I can think of for a black metal grab handle like the one shown below but one that is straight up and down without the offset over to the wall surface, so the top and bottom mounting plates would be secured to the wood door surround, not the wall on the other side of the door surround.

The poster of this picture purchased an interior grab handle designed for Four Winds Huricane Class A but I'm looking for one that is not offset like this one.

Anyone know where to find a straight bar? I think I saw one in a fleetwood, perhaps...the one I saw was even taller than the one above in the picture (which would be even better)

Here's three more, but would prefer it be just straight up and down, mounted on the door surround, and just curved to the mounting bracket so as not to be a knuckle buster if it has a squared mounting bracket

Thanks in advance!

I was going to say HD or Lowe's. If they don't have them in stock, they may have a catalog to order from and something closer to what you are looking for.

Yes, the style of those bars in your picture is like what I need, but in black and more like 3/4" round bar. I think those handicap assist bars are more like 1-1/2" - 2-1/4".

I did check both HD and Lowes online and they only show the larger handicap assist ones in stainless steel.

I'm pretty sure the ones like I've seen are specifically for RV doors, not handicap assist.

Thanks for the comments...anyone else seen black grab rails on the interior of RVs?

I would check RV Salvage websites like Visone RV Parts and Colaw RV Parts. There is also Northwest RV Supply In Oregon.
