Trailer Shock Replacements

Hi just a query on shock replacement on my 1999 Fleetwood Prowler that came with Maeco 19176 shocks ( I believe OE). I believe I did a pretty good job checking the Internet and only came up with Monroe part number 555001 granted these are just damping shocks for the springs(for those who have had bad experiences with Monroe's). I've already order (last night) through Monroe on Amazon for $27. each.
Anybody have any other source out there? For myself and others

I believe you have the right shock--don't know about a bad experience with Monroe--mine last ok except when the mount bracket breaks. Can't blame that on the shock.
Do the Monroes have the same extension/compression length as the originals?

Yes they do have the same Ex/comp +/-.125 (tap measure). The only reason I mention bad experience because in my search but they could of been talking about vehicle shocks I didn't read the whole post.
My Maeco's were factory installed using spring perch for lower mounting point and a welded on upper mount. If mine break I'm in deep do.
