Need locking gas shock for Island - any ideas?

I have a 2005 Itasca Horizon 40AD and it has the slide out island/galley. It currently does not lock which means I have to use duct tape to hold it down so it doesn't slide out when we're driving.

I took it all a part, and found out that the gas shock is missing. Looking at the parts manual, the part number is 151544-01-000 EA SPRING/GAS - LOCKING - W/O RELEASE HEAD - SLIDING GALLEY.

When I got a quote for it, it was about $175! All it really is is a locking gas shock, so that seems ridiculously expensive.

My question is, does anyone know of another place to buy a locking gas shock? And does anyone know the dimensions of the stock replacement shock?

Thanks. Was really hoping that someone had found a direct way to buy it from the shock maker.
