I assume Column shift and you've already looked and its Eye and Rod? If so, I dont see why the B&M or Hurst replacements cant be made to work..You might have to fab your own brackets..

I would take a trip to a truck salvage yard..

If this is a class A motorhome chassis (i.e. M-300, M400, M500, M600) then the Dodge P/N is 3641309 (no longer available from Dodge). However, International (Navistar) P/N 435059C1 is the same at about 1/2 the cost (Navistar Dealer Locator: Find an International Parts Dealer).

If you can't locate your part in a scrape yard, the B & M should work if the ends and the length are the same.
