Safari '95 40' pusher question

My '95 Safari 40' pusher is missing a rear stabilizer bar bracket and I am trying to find a replacement piece either from a manufacturer or a salvaged RV. It is a pre-Monaco coach and their information on the original manufacturer was for a different part. I have pictures that can be e-mailed. It is a U-shaped bracket with a rubber composition bushing. Dimensions are about 4" X 4" X 2" and the bar is about 1 1/2" in diameter. I would appreciate any possible leads on locating a part.

Gillig LLC Also try these folks. Many chassis parts on early Safari/Beaver coaches came from Gillig.

Safari made their own chassis in Junction City Oregon -- It`s a Magnum Chassis -The suspension was called Velvet Ride, & I think BF Goodrich made it -- I owned 2 Safari`s, but had no trouble with either one -- Bill Willard

RV and Truck Parts and Service - Henderson's Line-Up And these guys have probably more experience rebuilding and modifying Safari Magnum chassis than anyone else in the country. What Bill says is correct...they did "build" the Magnum chassis, but it was an assembly of various heavy truck/bus parts.

I have the original manuals from Safari and the Magnum chassis, but there is nothing on the rear stabilizer bar. I have searched on "velvet ride", but so far, all have ended at dead ends. I tried Ralph Andrews from Safari at Pioneer Metal Works, but apparently they are out of business. I am sure the bracket is OEM and not manufactured by Safari.

Thanks to both Twomed and William Willard for responding to my need. I found a replacement bushing from hendersonslineup.com in Grants Pass, Ore. Shipped out the same day.
