Rollers for curved shower doors are available

I understand the finicky, delicate little rollers that suspend the two doors on our curved shower enclosures have not been available from any source.

Help is at hand!

When Bishop Christensen has orders for 100 of the little devils, he will have them made for us. I ordered 8, which put him into the 80s. At $32 each, they're certainly dear, but replacing your dead ones and buying spares is still cheaper than replacing the enclosure!

Email Bishop to add 8 for you, and we can get this show on the road: Bishop@midwestcustomrv.com

Great news. I was about to contact Bishop and see if he had figured anything out yet and wham, you post this great news. Not cheap for sure but cheaper, easier and quicker than changing out the whole shower, besides, I love the shower like it is.

shower door rollers

We have a 2002 Travel Supreme Select and we have a swinging curved shower door that has pivot pins in the bottom and top to allow movement in/out of the shower door.

I saw your posting for shower door "rollers" and am wondering if these are the same thing.

I need to replace the pivot pins but at $32 doors each I don't want to order something that is not what I need.

Did TSS change the curved shower door from pins (two one up and one on bottom) to rollers and if so when did they do that.

Not pins, but rollers for curved doors that slide back alongside fixed panels on either side.

But I've now heard the new rollers don't fit.

And Bishop has announced he's closing his shop by the end of July.

For pins, I'd contact DJ Specialties in New Paris, IN (DJ Specialties::Original Factory Parts and Accessories for Travel Supreme Recreational Vehicles)

or Precision Painting Interiors in Bremen, IN (Precision RV Interiors)

Those shower enclosures were made in Italy and, sadly, that factory is also out of business just like TS. So....the only apparent source would be to go the custom/ specially made rollers like Bishop was supposed to be having made up. I still don't understand how he didn't even know they were not of the correct size. Isn't that what measuring instruments are for????

Precision actually has some of the rollers, because I gave my doors & rollers to them when we put in a tub enclosure.
