I'm familiar with cabinet hinges both standard and european style and that one looks a lot more complicated than what I've seen. It might be something that's made specifically for that manufacturer.

Based on the age of your unit I'd start by contacting Colaw's RV Salvage in Springfield, MO. You'll probably need to send them a pic showing the hinge off the door and from different angles. They might have what you need. That would be my first step in locating the hinge.

Naturally I can't find the box of extra hinges to send to you when I need to find them . They were forever breaking in my Endeavor, so I'd invested a bunch of them. Then the coach got totaled .



Anyways, here's a few sources I'd collected over the years:

https://tweetys.com/overhead-door-support-hinge.aspx


https://www.rockler.com/overhead-bin-hinge


They go by several different names/numbers and weren't unique to Monaco, just more of a specialty item. I remember seeing prices range from $8 to over $16. Good luck! Oh, one thing I learned is to keep the adjustment screw only as tight as needed, any more and they break sooner.

I am pretty sure this is it. Look at the specs.

Good luck

Our 2008 is our full time home so the hinges are used a lot and several have failed. I gave up on a couple of cabinets and removed the screw and spring mechanisms and installed a simple push-rod piston device to hold the cabinets open or closed.

The cabinets need a lot of maintenance when used a lot. The adjustments must be done and often the screw holes need to be repaired. I use epoxy and tooth pick broken off flush to refill the holes.

I would suggest that you purchase a small supply to have on hand and NW RV supply will discount a quantity order. We're full-timers and have had many of them break in our 2006 Diplomat.

Thanks Mark, that's exactly the hinge! Ordered a couple of extras b/c the pivot is the failure point. They used a hollow rivet that wears out.
