Need storage bay door shocks

I have a 2000 flair class A. Having hard time finding shocks
on ther internet.
The shock has "Spring Lite" stamped on it. Couldn't find
Spring Lite on the internet. My doors swing upwards, full
basement style.

Thank you in advance.

Fred - what you want are actually called gas springs. They are available directly from Fleetwood, at 800-322-8216. Have your VIN number at the ready. Thier pricing is actually quite good. Before calling, recommend rustling around the coach and see if there are any other items you need.

You could also take the shock to an auto parts store, NAPA, etc and I suspect you could find a replacement that would work fine.
That's what I did when my Lexus RX300 back hatch door needed gas springs. I went to Lexus and they wanted like 10 million dollars so I went to an auto parts store and got them quite a bit cheaper.

AutoZone carries them, also if you're close to a Camping world they also carry them.

If you go to AutoZone or camping world, you will need to know the pressure rating of the originals.

Best and cheapest I found was on line at SPD gas springs and hardware - hinges, handles, drawer slides, latches, catches and locks - A Barnes Group, Inc. Company

Ordered mine and had then in a few days. They can cross reference most other brands and the ones they sell don't rust.

I ordered 4 gas struts for my coach yesterday on EBAY. $53 delivered or @$14 each.

You need to know the collapsed length, the extended length, and the lbs of force required. Mine are 40lbs holding the hatch in a vertical position.

Thanks for all the help on the gas door springs. Wish the
chassis shocks were that cheap.
