2002 Allure, most similar direct replacement for roof horns

The dual horns on this coach are pretty much rotted, looking for horns that will replace these in the simplest and most direct manner. Suggestions?

I’d contact the manufacturer that made your original ones. Just my thought. Good luck.

Try RV salvage yards like visone https://rvparts.visonerv.com/.

Air Horn Replacement

Funny that I just saw this post. I to am currently going through trying to replace my Airhorns on my 2002 Allure and am having problems to find a replacement. I know that my original ones were made by Go Air Horn but looks like they went out of business. Trying to look at a pair of Hadley Air Horn. Maybe someone that has a pair of Hadley types will post the model and part number of the type that are installed on their Motorhome or maybe just post what mfg of Horn is on their rig that was OEM beside Go Air Horn.

My original air horns were and still are Hadley.

I would think most any Air Horn would work with air from your horn compressor, but I only had to clean mine out to get them to work.

Twisted off the back end of each horn and disturbed some spiders roosting in there.

I had the same issue and could not find a direct replacement so instead of disturbing the mountings on the roof I removed the horns and installed a dual horn in the left front compartment under the drivers seat. Works great. Just an idea.

I suppose a train horn would be illegal???
But some.folk would deserve it
But all kidding aside we have Hadley as well

Check for obstructions bees spiders etc

Be safe up there,

Thanks everyone. Will check out the Hadleys. One of ours is actually broken.

If you have the black plastic horns, the OEM "GO AIR HORNS, INC" is no longer in existence. I just replaced mine with a set of Hadley horns salvaged from a Monoco motorhome from VisoneRV. They work great - even better than the originals before they started to deteriorate.

Make sure you ask the salvage yard to salvage and provide you the air fittings at the base of the air horns also! The plastic horn fittings were not usable with the Hadley horns.

Yes we do have the black plastic horns. Do you happen to know which model of Hadleys you found to fit? What year of Monaco were they on?

Thank you all so very much for the great tips and leads.

What I can tell you is you will not be able to find the same length, but that shouldn't be a problem. My plastic horns were approximately 22" and 25", but the Hadley's I used were 25" and 28". They stick further forward, but I had no issue with this. You will need to drill and screw down the forward supports in a new location, and fill/cover the previous forward support holes from the plastic horns. It's all doable. Use a good self-leveling sealant made for RVs.
